Youth (under 18) – I am under 18 years old. How often can I donate?

Until recently, the minimum age for whole blood donation in Australia was 16 years, however it has now changed to 18 years. 

Once you turn 18 you can give blood as often as every 12 weeks or you can donate plasma or platelets as often as every two weeks.
