Schedule your donor screening

We have paid donation appointments available now! To get started, schedule your screening today.

If you or any of your recent contacts have had symptoms of COVID 19 or have tested positive for COVID 19 in the past 2 weeks, please give us a call at 510-495-0232 before scheduling an appointment so that we can talk to you about when it will be safe for you to start donating.

To become a donor in our program, you will need to:

  • Be between 18 and 55 years old
  • Weigh at least 120 lbs
  • Be in excellent health
  • Be a US citizen
  • Have a valid driver's license or ID
  • Be able to make some time during weekdays to come in and donate!

Screening appointments take about 30 minutes. You will review and sign some consents, complete a health history, and talk to a nurse who will answer your questions and draw your blood.

If you do not see an appointment time listed in the calendar below that works for your schedule, please call us at 510-495-0232 and we will try to accommodate your schedule.
