You should call your local Red Cross.
ln many countries, they

are the main source of blood.
lf you live in the US, you can

call a private blood donation company, and get their information

Call the red cross to start. And no, no ill effects-you will replenish them quickly.
If it was dangerous they would not be allowed to harvest them.
