Shepherd Eye Center Blood Drive June 15

Shepherd Eye Center is hosting a blood drive at its Pecos-Mcleod location this Friday, June 15th.  The public is invited to donate and receive two vouchers for a 51’s baseball game.

You must be at least 17 years of age or older, weigh at least 110 lbs, and be healthy on the day of the drive.  Tattoos have to be over 1 year old to donate.

On the day of your generous blood donation, remember to drink plenty of fluids the day before and the day of your donation.  Try to avoid caffeinated beverages the day of donating.  Eat a healthy breakfast because your body wil need extra energy to donate a pint of blood.  Wear clothing with easily rollable sleeves or short sleeves.   Be prepared to inform the volunteer drawing your blood exactly what prescriptions and over-the-counter medications you are currently taking.   Present your photo ID or blood donor card in order to donate.
