In brief: Rest of the day

Thank you for your donation - or for considering being a donor. We need more people to be so generous.
People who are healthy enough to be accepted for blood, plasma or platelet donation should tolerate it well. However, since some fluid is removed, they should probably not do strenuous activity for the rest of the day and be sure to drink (non-alcoholic liquids) generously.
