CCSS Begins Blood Donation Campaign on Sundays

The Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS) – Costa Rican Social Security Fund, will be out on Sundays for blood donors to meet the demands of the medical centers.

The CCSS seeks to maintain reserves and thus guarantee the condition of patients who need transfusions.

This Sunday, August 19, from 8 a.m. to noon, the Banco Nacional de Sangre (National Blood Bank) will be in Tejar del Guarco, Cartago; on Sunday, Sept. 2, it will be at the Cruz Roja Costarricense de San Ignacio de Acosta (San Jose) starting at 7:30 in the morning.

Danny Cabezas, a doctor from the National Blood Bank, said that to donate blood, donors must be between 18 and 65 years old, weigh more than 50 kilos, have not eaten up to 12 hours prior to the donation and not have ingested liquor in 48 hours prior.

People can donate blood up to four times a year and in each donation.
