Blood donations needed; free antibody testing

The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center has planned multiple blood drives in Northside ISD in November as the need for blood continues amid the coronavirus pandemic. Blood donations are greatly needed to prevent shortages.

All blood donations will be tested for the antibody to COVID-19. The test is free and results will be available online through a donor portal.

Visit SouthTexasBlood.org/testing for more information on testing.
