First mobile plasma collection blood drive comes to Henderson

Tori Tokalau Reporter from Western Leader

Hi Neighbours,

West Auckland will host New Zealand's first ever mobile plasma blood drive this week at Henderson's Trusts Arena on October 19-23.

The blood drive is a push by New Zealand Blood Service to ramp up plasma donation accessibility around the country ahead of surging demand.

Henderson's event will allow 150 whole blood donors who meet the plasma eligibility criteria to donate at a mobile drive for the first time.

It will begin at 8am to 1.30pm and people can sign up to donate here: www.nzblood.co.nz...

We need the law to protect us.

David from Glen Eden

This virus will yet again escape in New Zealand unless everyone follows the rules. The vast majority of us have complied with the necessary restrictions and recommendations to keep covid-19 at bay. A few however think they know better and for whatever reason disregard the virus danger. They are putting themselves and others as well as the economy at more serious risk. It is these dissenters alone who won't comply with being asked and who fully justify, make necessary, that the rules become law. And the rules are so simple, the rewards huge. The government has so far, [as usual], been light handed with enforcement. It won't work. The law needs ENFORCING with heavy fines and far stricter oversight. Only then can we compare with the success story of Taiwan. The vast majority of decent New Zealand citizens would welcome, and understand, the need for law enforcement. It's time we got on with it. It is not right that a small minority are left to wreck the place beyond imagination. I feel for Dr Bloomfield who puts his heart and soul into his job but is so undermined by a few idiots.
