VA Blood Drive


Tue. Feb 15, 2022, 11:00 am – 4:00 pm ET



VA Bedford Healthcare System is hosting a blood drive on Feb. 15 and 18 to help fight the blood shortage caused by COVID-19. This is part of a nationwide effort by VA medical centers to respond to the ongoing national need for blood due to the coronavirus public health emergency.

Veterans and members of the public wishing to donate blood need to schedule an appointment online. Walk-in donation is not available currently.

The blood drive will be staffed and run by the American Red Cross who will provide all furnishings and supplies, including masks. 

The American Red Cross has also implemented additional safety measure including requiring masks and social distancing measures at all blood drives to ensure the safety of donors and staff.
