Default Playa del Carmen and Donating Blood

FYI: I was just turned away from donating blood due to the fact that I had been in Playa del Carmen within the past year. Apparently there is a concern about malaria from that area.

Remember, you can donate blood every six weeks. Let's keep the inventory full!

The same thing happened to me after I had been to Labadee. I had to wait one year from the time of my visit there.

There is always a need for blood donors. So, if you can't give now make sure to go back and donate when you are able.

I plan on giving Sat. I was in Playa del Carmen last Feb so hope that they will take my blood this time. If not I'll go the next time.

Trish: I don't know about other parts of Mexico, other than Cozumel. Coz was okay to have visited. I heard from someone thought that had been to Playa within the past year, and they were able to donate. Restrictions might vary state to state.

I went to donate on Saturday and they took my blood. I was in Playa del Carmen last Feb.

According to the Red Cross worker, the tourist areas seem to be OK.
