Be­come a blood Plas­ma do­nor

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - NEWS -

On Oc­to­ber 26, the se­cond day of Ba­got­ville mi­li­ta­ry ga­the­ring will be held at the Plas­ma­vie per­ma­nent col­lec­tion cen­ter in Sa­gue­nay. Ini­tia­ted by MC­pl Vé­ro­nique Sa­vard last fall, this an­nual do­na­tion day, is au­tho­ri­zed and en­cou­ra­ged by Co­lo­nel Ra­diff. It’s a great op­por­tu­ni­ty for the mem­bers of the Base to take time to make their first do­na­tion or to main­tain their good ha­bits. Al­though as im­por­tant as the do­na­tion of blood to save lives, plas­ma do­na­tion is used pri­ma­ri­ly for the ma­nu­fac­ture of drugs. The Chi­cou­ti­mi Pi­cking Cen­ter is one of four per­ma­nent points of ser­vice to re­duce Hé­ma- Qué­bec's de­pen­dence on fo­rei­gn mar­kets. In­deed, 21% of the plas­ma used to ma­nu­fac­ture our me­di­cines comes from Que­bec while 79% must be ac­qui­red from the out­side mar­ket. A Plas­ma­vie Sa­gue­nay kiosk will be ins­tal­led at the base gym on Oc­to­ber 20th for the sports day bet­ween 8 am and 3 pm. Come in large num­bers to re­gis­ter to make this 2nd edi­tion, a re­soun­ding suc­cess.
