Blood donation on the CERN site is resuming, following a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19. The first sessions will take place on 30 May and 13 September.

On 30 May, you will be able to give blood at Restaurant 2 from 8.30 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. The session is being organised in collaboration with the HUG.

As the blood barometer shows, Geneva has a shortage of blood. Your donation will therefore be immensely valuable.

Before coming to the donation point, make sure that you assess:

  • your health, notably checking that you have no symptoms such as fever, coughing, a cold or breathing difficulties;
  • your eligibility to give blood, using this information sheet and questionnaire issued by the HUG (but please note that only the pre-donation conversation with the nurse or doctor on the day can confirm your eligibility).

We hope to see many of you there!

Details of the session on 13 September, which will be organised in collaboration with EFS, will be made available in due course. If you have any questions about blood donation in France, see this website.
