Do you have blood type B positive?

Around 7% of all Dutch people has this blood type. Only few people need this blood type, that's why we invite you less than other donors. 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.
