  • From July 26, 2022 to August 5, 2022
Nouvelles collectes de sang de l’EFS du 26 juillet au 5 août 2022

**To face the critical situation of blood reserves, the French Blood Establishment calls for your solidarity in this vital emergency! From Tuesday, July 26 to Friday, August 5, 2022, from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., the EFS is organizing new blood drives at the Hilton Paris La Défense hotel.

For the second time in its history, and less than 6 months apart, EFS has issued a vital emergency bulletin on the level of blood reserves too low to face the summer, despite the mobilization of donors in June. The level of blood reserves in France is historically low, a critical situation at the height of the vacation season, which could prove dangerous in the short term for treating patients. For almost two years, blood reserves have reached an unprecedented situation at a dangerously critical level. According to the EFS, there are currently 77,000 red blood cell bags collected, whereas a satisfactory level would be 100,000. The forecasts for the coming weeks are even more complicated. Irreplaceable, blood donations allow us to treat more than one million patients each year in France. Therefore, to continue its actions and meet the needs of patients, the EFS is organizing an exceptional mobilization of its teams and its collection and reception capacities for blood donors.

Make a gesture and give your blood!
