The campaign on 30 May was a great success: 111 donors came along to give blood, including 33 first-timers, and 80 donations were collected.
On 13 September, from 8.30 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. in Restaurant 2, CERN will hold another blood donation session, in collaboration with the Hôpitaux universitaires de Genève (HUG). Due to logistic constraints, the session organised together with the Établissement français du sang (EFS) will not take place this year.
Before coming to the Restaurant 2 donation point, make sure that:
- you are in good health and have no symptoms such as fever, cough, a cold or breathing difficulties;
- you are eligible to give blood – please consult this information sheet and complete this questionnaire issued by the HUG (but note that only the pre-donation conversation with the nurse or doctor on the day can confirm your eligibility).
As a thank you, the HUG will be giving each donor a 10 CHF voucher, to be used in Novae’s Restaurants 1 and 2 at CERN.
The Geneva blood barometer, which is regularly updated, shows that blood stocks are currently running extremely low. We therefore hope to see many of you at the donation point!
