ANNOUNCING….SIXTEEN YEAR OLDS CAN NOW DONATE

New legislation signed into law on May 6, 2009 by Gov. Jon S. Corzine lowered the legal age to donate blood to 16 with parent/guardian consent.  The Blood Center of New Jersey will be accepting blood donations from 16 year olds beginning October 1, 2009 with parent/guardian consent.

To be eligible to donate blood, individuals who are 16 years old must be in general good health, weigh 120 pounds, and have consent form signed by their parent or guardian. 

Consent forms are located here on our website and at blood drives.  Sixteen year olds who are donating at high school blood drives, must have their consent forms signed and returned to the blood drive chairperson the day prior to the blood drive.
