South Texas Blood and Tissue Center is urgently asking donors to continue to donate blood if they are well and healthy. The blood shortage in South Texas poses a serious health risk to many patients who can’t wait for coronavirus to go away. Your lifesaving donation helps ensure that blood is available for cancer patients, car accident victims, moms delivering newborns and many other patients in need. Blood donations continue to be considered an “essential city function,” as designated by San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg.
Donations are by appointment only. This will help us to avoid crowds and allow us to follow social distancing guidelines.
Make your appointment process go quicker by prefilling certain forms. Check the STBTC website for more information.
