Bloodmobile at PAHS

Those eligible are encouraged to donate blood components (platelets, plasma, and/or red cells) on the Trima machines.

Minimum requirements for any donors are: 17 years of age (no maximum age); 110 pounds; no tattoos or body piercings within the last 12 months; and general good health.

There is no minimum time after a flu shot before donating, unless you have a reaction.

First-time donors should bring photo ID, such as a driver's license. Previous Miller donors should bring their Miller ID cards.

Students are reminded that the school requires signed parental permission slips.
