Héma-Québec is actively pursuing its essential mission during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many blood drives are held every day at various locations in Québec.
More than ever, Héma-Québec is encouraging new and existing donors to continue to mobilize to ensure a sufficient level to meet the needs of patients in hospitals.
