- Advertisment -

Highlighting the importance of blood donation to save the lives of patients, the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) said vaccinated people may donate blood within 14 days of the first or second dose. 

“It is vital for all members of our community to regularly donate blood. Blood is our lifeline, and our banks need a consistent supply of blood to protect the interest of the entire community, especially our brothers and sisters who require life-saving transfusions. There are currently no substitutes for blood therapy, and all members of the society must consider the possibility and day where they, a friend, or family member would require a blood transfusion too,” Dr. Marwan Al Kaabi, Acting Group Chief Operations Officer at SEHA, said. 

Each donor may save the lives of at least three patients. 

“We have ensured that the blood donation process is safe and efficient, in line with global best practices for donors. During Covid-19, we introduce additional, robust, safety, and precautionary measures at the blood banks. The process is not only completely safe for donors, but there is also no risk of transmission of the Covid-19 virus during donation. We urge all our members of the community to donate blood, including those who have received the Covid-19 vaccine. Everyone must commit to donating as this is a public health matter,” Dr. Al Kaabi added. 

The Global Filipino Magazine is the only Filipino magazine in the UAE that prints on a monthly basis. Its goal is to champion the success of every global Filipino across the globe.
