First mobile plasma collection blood drive comes to Henderson

Tori Tokalau Reporter from Western Leader

Hi Neighbours,

West Auckland will host New Zealand's first ever mobile plasma blood drive this week at Henderson's Trusts Arena on October 19-23.

The blood drive is a push by New Zealand Blood Service to ramp up plasma donation accessibility around the country ahead of surging demand.

Henderson's event will allow 150 whole blood donors who meet the plasma eligibility criteria to donate at a mobile drive for the first time.

It will begin at 8am to 1.30pm and people can sign up to donate here: www.nzblood.co.nz...
