The coronavirus scare has caused the grocery store shelves to empty and unfortunately our blood shelves, too. The Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is urging individuals to make and keep blood donation appointments and organized blood drives to ensure a steady supply of blood.
There’s especially a vital need for O+ and O- red cells.
The Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center assures healthy people that it is SAFE to donate despite the coronavirus.
