The Cadiz Transfusion, Tissues and Cells Center has carried out a “urgent” appeal for the blood donation this Tuesday, May 17, since “our blood reserves are very low and we need to have sufficient blood stock to maintain the hospital demand for blood products,” they warn in a statement.

The request is made to all blood groups “without any exception”. Therefore, the premises of the neighborhood association of the Atlantic Park neighborhood will open in the afternoon 17:30 hours to 21:30 hours in the square of Arles s/n.

The Regional Blood Transfusion Center also reminds that the Fixed Blood Donation Point of the Transfusion Center located in the Jerez de la Frontera University Hospital Monday through Friday (working days) during donor service hours 9:00 am to 2:30 pm.

The only requirements necessary to donate blood are to be between 18 and 65 years old (up to 60 if it is the first time you donate), weigh at least 50 kg and be in good health.

“Remember that you can help save lives”, they emphasize from the CRTS.
