Donate blood and give someone a chance at tomorrow. (2022)

SAN ANTONIO – The blood supply remains critically low, and donors are needed to meet the demand.

Blood can be among the first lines of defense in saving someone’s life and it’s one of the selfless and easiest ways to give back to your community. If you’re a first-time donor or a donation pro, schedule an appointment with University Health to donate blood this January.

Every blood type is special, every blood type is needed, and you are more qualified than you think! Qualified donors are at least 17-years-old and weigh at least 115 pounds.
