There is a worldwide blood and plasma shortage because of the pandemic. Today I decided to sit down and answer some of the most common questions you have asked me all about blood, how to donate, and dispel any misinformation. We’re talking eligibility to donate regarding COVID and vaccines, the safety of blood and plasma donation, and what your blood type may or may not say about your dating life. Anything else you want to know about blood or donating? Ask below!

World Blood Donor Day
is like Christmas for Vampires xD
Don’t be culturally insensitive. In Korea, it’s common to talk use blood type as a basis for personality. The underlying principle is debatable but still culturally significant.
I can’t donate my blood anymore unfortunately. I donated 12 times, still better than nothing I guess.
Do they have to take the blood from the inside of your elbow? I only have one good vein and I’ve donated from it about 20ish times, the last 3 times I went in they can’t properly take from that vein anymore because they say it’s too scarred. Do they have another option for donations?
I lost 2.5 L of blood when I had my little one. That was a bit full on.
My friend has AB- blood. He donated blood on several occasions. The local place told him they didn’t want anymore of his type. LoL

June is Pride Month – it would have been nice if you addressed the issues/barriers that the LGBTQ+ face when donating blood, especially in the US.
