Do you have blood type AB negative?

Around 0,5% of all Dutch people has this blood type. AB negative is the least common blood type, so only very few people need it. That's why we invite you less than others. However, this doesn't mean that you're less valuable. Your blood is still vital to 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 AB negative preferably receives blood from an AB-negative blood donor. We therefore need all blood groups.
