After your donation is finished, we will apply a bandage to your arm.
If you’re a first time donor, you should rest on your chair for at least 5 minutes just to make sure you’re ok.
If you’ve donated before, rest on your chair for 2 minutes.
While you’re resting, we’ll ask you to do some muscle tensing exercises.
After you’ve rested, head to the refreshments area and relax for at least 15 minutes with a complimentary cool drink and a snack – many donors say this is their favourite part of the process!
This is the perfect time to book your next appointment using our GiveBlood app or online at blood.ca.
