The American Red Cross has updated its guidelines, making more people eligible to donate.
People who spent time in the United Kingdom, Ireland, or France, and have never tried to give blood due to concerns over variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease – related to mad cow disease – are now invited to give blood to help save lives.
The announcement comes after eligibility guidelines were recently updated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
We mention it because there’s currently a blood shortage, and the Red Cross Bloodmobile will be in Redwood Falls next Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 17, and 18, and at the Morton Fire Station on Friday, Oct. 21.
