The Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce is hosting a two-day blood drive in conjunction with Cedars-Sinai. The blood drive takes place from 9 a.m.- 3 p.m. on Feb. 12 and 13. The location is the Chamber offices at 9400 S. Santa Monica Boulevard, on the second floor. Two hours of complimentary self-parking are available at the city-run garage at 439 N. Canon Drive/ 438 N. Beverly Drive.
All donors will receive complimentary testing for COVID-19 antibodies, plus a health screening that includes a blood pressure assessment, iron/hematocrit reading, temperature and pulse. Access to an online portal enables donors to look up previous donations, blood type, health-wellness summary and monitor any fluctuations.
Donors must be at least 17 years old (or 16 years old with a signed parental consent hospital form), weigh at least 110 lbs. and be in good overall health. Use of common daily medications (cholesterol, blood pressure, birth control, antidepressants, thyroid, even diabetics taking insulin) does not preclude donation. Donors should wear a mask and bring I.D., such as a driver’s license.
