IU Health Starke Hospital Employees Donate Blood

IU Health Starke Hospital employees gave blood in a donation event on Jan. 15.

The American Red Cross Bloodmobile was at the Starke County campus to receive donations.

Because of the flu season, blood donations have not been as plentiful. You may donate blood after receiving the flu vaccine if you meet all of the eligibility requirements. The flu shot is not a cause for a blood donation deferral because there is no risk of transmitting the flu after receiving the inoculation.

If you are not feeling well, you will be asked to come back a different day to donate blood.
