Summer Blood Donors Needed!


The need for donors of all blood types has escalated since the beginning of the summer vacation season, especially for type O-negative, the universal blood type required primarily by emergency and trauma patients.  In emergency situations when there is no time to determine a patient’s blood type, doctors depend on O-negative blood to sustain life until the patient can be stabilized.  An ample supply gives transfusion options when shortages of other blood types arise.  Doctors also routinely rely on O-negative blood when premature babies and infants under six months old require lifesaving transfusions.
