UCI Health Blood Drive: June 22

Wednesday, June 22, 2022 - 9:00am - 4:00pm

UCI Health and the City of Irvine are partnering for a series of blood drives which will be held at Great Park monthly through September. A blood supply crisis is posing a concerning risk to patient care both locally and nationally. To address the great need for blood donations in Orange County, UCI Health Blood Drives will take place by appointment only from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Great Park Parking Lot 2 on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, June 22
  • Tuesday, July 19
  • Tuesday, August 16
  • Tuesday, September 20

The UCI Medical Center is the only Level 1 Trauma Center in Orange County, and transfuses over 1,000 units of blood every month. Cancer patients, people who have experienced a severe trauma such as an auto accident as well as babies in the NICU make up a high percentage of those receiving blood every day. Blood cannot be manufactured, which means they need at least 1,000 people to donate blood each month in order to meet the needs of people in our community.

Courtesy of UCI Health, those who give blood in June will receive their choice of either a $10 Target gift card or a $10 In-N-Out gift card. There will also be a drawing for two passes to Wild Rivers. Everyone who donates blood June 22 will be entered to win the two passes.

Great Park is located at 8000 Great Park Blvd., Irvine. For more information about eligibility, safety, other common questions about blood drives, and to book a blood drive appointment, click here.
