Covid-19 Antibody Testing is available at All BLOOD DRIVES & at these SELECT DONATION CENTERS:

The State of Pennsylvania REQUIRES all people going out in public to wear a mask.  We will supply you with a mask if you don't have one.  Thank you for helping us to keep the blood supply in our region available for our patients!

The Pennsylvania Department of Health is now requiring people who return from travel out of state to have a negative COVID-19 test before going out in public. 

Therefore, if you have traveled within the last 14 days out of state and have not had a negative COVID-19 test, Central Pennsylvania Blood Bank is requesting you self-defer for 14 days upon return to Pennsylvania or until receipt of a negative COVID-19 test.

The exception to this requirement is if you commute to and from Pennsylvania for your job. If you are a commuter, please notify Donor Services staff of your exemption.

Due to the National Emergency regarding COVID-19, Central Pennsylvania Blood Bank is making the following changes:

Please call us (1-800-771-0059) and schedule an appointment at a blood donation center or a blood drive.

We strongly suggest you schedule an appointment to donate blood.  **Appointments help us improve your donation experience.

Walk-ins are welcome, however, donors with appointments will be taken first and this may result in a significant wait time.

Please call us to schedule an appointment. 1-800-771-0059
