Oceanside CA— Tri City Medical Center, 4002 Vista Way, Oceanside 92056-Parking Lot near the MRI building, will host a Mobile Blood Drive, in partnership with San Diego Blood Bank,Thursday,  January 6, 2022 from  8:00 am ‑  1:00 pm

About 1 in 7 people entering a hospital need blood. One pint of blood, which is the amount volunteers give when they donate blood, can save up to three lives. Approximately, 38% of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood but less than 10% do annually. Since blood is always needed, volunteers are asked to give blood for patients, such as those going through cancer or trauma.

Donors must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • 17 and older (Age 16 requires a parental consent)
  • 114 pounds and in good health

It is recommended that donors consume an adequate meal and plenty of fluids prior to giving. A photo identification must be presented upon signing up to donate.

Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment for their convenience but walk-ins are also welcome. To schedule an appointment, please call 1-800-4MY-SDBB (1-800-469-7322) or visit www.SanDiegoBloodBank.org.
