Blood Drives

Check your watch or your phone. Note the time. On average in the U.S., during the next hour, 1,800 people are going to need blood.

Here's the good news: giving blood usually takes about an hour. And it can help save up to three lives.

To ensure there is an ample blood supply in our region, Johns Hopkins Bayview hosts an American Red Cross blood drive every 56 days. If you are an eligible donor, we encourage you to participate in one of our upcoming drives.

The American Red Cross is facing a severe blood shortage due to an unprecedented number of blood drive cancellations during the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Healthy individuals are needed to donate now to help patients counting on lifesaving blood.
Call 410-550-0289 to schedule a donation.

Other upcoming drives:

  • May 27 to 29, 2020 
    Note: When registering online, use sponsor code "bayviewasthmaallergycenter."

Schedule your life-saving donation today (enter sponsor: johnshopkinsbayview). All participants receive a parking pass, meal coupon and special “thank you” gift from the Medical Center.
