LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas Ballpark, in partnership with Vitalant, the largest blood provider in Nevada, will host a one-day blood on March 7. The public drive takes place in the Playstudios Club (located inside the Ballpark) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Donors must make appointments in advance online with sponsor code: lvballpark and are encouraged to keep social distance recommendations.

Per state mandates, masks are required for entry into the facility and temperature checks will be enforced.

Vitalant, the largest blood provider in the state of Nevada, is providing COVID-19 antibody testing with every successful donation. Donors will receive the results within two weeks. Donors that receive positive results can then choose to aid in the fight against COVID-19 by donating convalescent plasma, the only antibody treatment available for critically ill COVID-19 hospital patients.

For those who have recovered from COVID-19, Vitalant will also be collecting convalescent plasma donations at this blood drive.

For full eligibility requirements and application, go to their website.

Appointments are strongly recommended.
