Additional news: The Red Cross introduces RapidPass

RapidPass is a new tool that allows blood donors to help save lives in less time. RapidPass offers donors a way to complete their pre-reading and donation questions online from the comfort and privacy of their home or office, reducing the time they spend at blood drives by as much as 15 minutes.

Visit redcrossblood.org/RapidPass.

Important information to remember:

  • RapidPass can only be completed on the day of the drive. The donor must complete the steps to redeem their pass on the day they donate.
  • Donors must complete RapidPass using a desktop or laptop computer. RapidPass cannot currently be completed using a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet.
  • RapidPass does not take the place of scheduling an appointment. It is only used to complete the pre-reading and pre-donation questionnaire in advance of an appointment.
  • Donors must print out their pass or email the PDF to themselves and show it on their mobile device when they come to donate. Donors who do not provide the pass will be asked to complete the questions again.
