    • @DwayneLanghoff Yes you need to make reservations and before you can donate, you should pass the series of examinations.

  1. Can you walk your resume into the center or do you have to mail it in. I have 4 years of Phlebotomy experience.

    • @StaceyReeves I suggest that you’ll visit the center and directly submit your resume to their staff. In this manner, your resume will be screened and evaluated right away.

    • @james Hi James. Yes, there are certain meds that defer you from selling plasma and it all depends on what your condition is. For the specifics, kindly search for your blood center using this directory http://bloodbanker.com/banks/ and call. I’m sure the staff will be ready to answer your questions.
