West Valley blood drives available throughout June

Posted

Vitalant has declared a critical shortage of blood as supplies have been significantly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, according to a release.

Shelter-in-place orders led to 566 blood drives canceled since early March in Arizona alone, resulting in a loss of more than 17,000 uncollected blood donations, a release states.

That, coupled with a resumption of surgeries and other medical procedures as stay-at-home restrictions were lifted, has caused a 25% increase in the need for blood during the past several weeks.

All blood types are critically needed right now, with an especially high need for types O-positive, O-negative, A-negative and B-negative red blood cells.

Donors are advised to make an appointment to give blood as soon as possible at vitalant.org or 877-258-4825.
