Blood donation drive by students before COVID-19 vaccination

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, fearing the shortage of blood in the blood banks due to the vaccination of the 18-44 age group, Don Bosco Arts and Science College, Angadikadavu, Kannur, Kerala initiated a blood donation drive among college students from 26 April 2021. As per the circular issued by the National Blood Transfusion Council, after the first or second dose of vaccination, a person is unfit to donate blood for 14 days.

Foreseeing a possible crisis for blood during this time frame, the National Service Scheme (NSS) unit and the physical education faculty of the college initiated the blood donation drive. During they donation drive, they hope to collect several units of blood from college students and faculty members. Currently, eight colleges under Kannur University have joined the campaign organized by the NSS unit of the college. The campaign continues up to May 2021.
