Do you have blood type A positive?

Around 35% of all Dutch people has blood type A positive. It's the second most common blood type in the Netherlands, so a lot of people need it. That's why we invite donors with this blood type on a regular basis. These donors are vital for a lot of people.

Women are allowed to give blood a maximum of three times a year, men up to five times a year. How often you are called upon depends on the blood group that is needed at a certain time. A patient preferably receives blood from his own blood group. Thus, a patient with blood group A positive preferably receives blood from an A positive blood donor. We therefore need all blood groups.
