Blood Drive

Héma-Québec calls on the Dorval population to participate in its blood drive, which will take place on Saturday March 28, at the Les Jardins Dorval shopping centre. The entrance will be through the SAQ, on Carson Avenue.

More than ever in this pandemic situation, Héma-Québec needs the citizens’ support to maintain the hospitals’ supplies in terms of safe blood products.

Note that the blood drive will be done by appointment only, in order to avoid the presence of too many people at once. Anytime it is possible, a minimum distance of two meters will be maintained between people, and only those in good health will be called on to give blood.

If you wish to participate in this blood drive, call Héma-Québec at 1 800 343-7264.
