SBC PreCheck

Thank you for donating with us today!

SBC preCheck™ is designed to give you a head start on the blood donation process by allowing you to answer many of our blood donation screening questions on your own device before you come in to donate.

PLEASE NOTE: Your SBC preCheck™ questions MUST BE STARTED AND COMPLETED ON THE DAY OF YOUR DONATION. SBC preCheck™ will not tell you whether or not you are eligible to donate blood (this will be determined when you answer the remaining questions at your donation site).

READ BEFORE DONATION: COVID-19 Safety

For the safety of local patients, other donors and our team members, you are not eligible to donate blood if:

  • You have any COVID-19 symptoms, including:
    • fever over 100 degrees
    • cough
    • shortness of breath
    • sore throat
    • flu-like symptoms
    • fatigue
    • loss of smell/taste
    • muscle aches
    • nausea/vomiting
    • diarrhea
    • runny nose/congestion
    • headache
  • In the last 14 days, you have had close contact with anyone diagnosed with or suspected of having COVID-19
  • In the last 28 days, you have been diagnosed with or suspect you may have had COVID-19
  • You have a pending diagnostic test for COVID-19

Blood donation remains an essential activity; as such, individuals who are not currently instructed to quarantine for potential exposure to or symptoms of COVID-19, and who are otherwise eligible to donate blood, are allowed and encouraged to do so, even in the case of a shelter-in-place or purple tier designation.

If you have questions about your eligibility to donate due to county orders or potential COVID-19 exposure, please visit our website at stanfordbloodcenter.org/covid-19.
