Donating Blood

In an emergency or if a person is having surgery in La Paz the fleet will often be asked to donate blood. These requests will be made on the morning VHF net. You will be directed to a particular hospital and donations must be made under the name of the patient. The requirements for donors will most likely be similar to those listed below.

You may also donate blood Monday through Friday at the IMSS Hospital on 5 de Feberero at Independencia. Bring your ID and arrive between 7:30 & 8 am. A quick screening and blood test will reveal if you are a candidate. A further screening will be done before blood is taken.
