Do you have blood type B negative?

Around 1,3 % of all Dutch people has blood type B negative. Only very few people need this blood type, that's why we invite you less than other donors. However, this doesn't mean you're less valuable. Your blood is still vital to a lot of people.

Women are allowed to give blood a maximum of 3 times a year, men up to 5 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 B positive preferably receives blood from a B positive blood donor. We therefore need all blood groups.
