Urgent Blood Donations Needed in Puerto Vallarta

June 30, 2015

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The Canadian Consular Agency of Vallarta is requesting Urgent Blood Donations, O NEGATIVE for a Canadian citizen who was involved in an accident yesterday near Puerto Vallarta and is currently hospitalized.

We just received the below message from the Canadian Consular:

A young Canadian was involved in an accident yesterday near Puerto Vallarta and is currently in need of O negative blood. The reserves of this blood type in Puerto Vallarta have been exhausted. If you, or anyone you know, has O negative blood and meets the conditions below, please consider donating at the Puerto Vallarta Blood Bank. Simply indicate that you are donating for the Canadian patient and show government issued ID (passport for foreigners.)

Conditions To Donate Blood:

At Least 18 years old
In good general health, not currently sick
No alcohol consumption in the last 24 hours
No drug use
No new tattoos or piercings in the last 12 months
No operations in the last 12 months

Menstruating Women: Ok if in good health

Please consider donating the Gift of Life, just as soon as you can! It's a daily battle searching for blood for critical patients in all of our local hospitals.

To donate please go to the Puerto Vallarta Blood Bank, located on the 2nd floor at Hospital San Javier, across from where the cruise ships dock. The Blood Bank is open from 8 am to 3 pm Monday through Saturday. For further information, please feel free to contact the Blood Bank at (322) 226-1010.
