Blood donations critically needed

Blood donation centers in Washington state have an emergency need for blood donations. Your donation in the days and weeks ahead is critical for medical providers to continue their life-saving work. 

Schedule an appointment with Bloodworks Northwest online or call 800-398-7888. There is no waiting period to donate if you have been vaccinated against COVID-19. For more vaccine guidance, visit

To meet community needs and keep everyone safe, Bloodworks Northwest has shifted from welcoming walk-ins to scheduled appointments only at all Bloodworks Centers and Pop-Up locations. Additionally, donation centers no longer permit visitors and children under age 16 on-site. Donors are also required to wear their own masks for everyone’s safety. These measures ensure social distancing and a safe, controlled experience for all donors and staff.

Blood donation remains an essential action. Thank you for helping keep the blood supply strong! #KitsapResponds
