There’s currently a critical blood shortage and blood donations are being distributed to hospital patients faster than donors are giving. These patients need your help donate blood rebuild the blood supply to sufficient levels. Vitalant strives to always keep a four-day supply on hand to meet the needs of patients every day and be prepared for emergencies that would require significant volumes of donated blood products.
Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is sponsoring a blood drive on Saturday, September 16, 2023 in a bloodmobile located near the visitor drop off at 1001 Fairgrounds Drive, Vallejo Ca 94590. Please click below to schedule an appointment! You can help rebuild the blood supply to adequate levels as we continue to provide lifesaving blood to patients across Northern California. As an added incentive all donors will receive a ticket for admission to the park.
