Blood Donations Still Needed
The need for blood donations, especially O negative, is extremely high and Florida Blood Services, a division of OneBlood, Inc., is making a critical appeal. Due to increased blood transfusions in area hospitals, donations are needed immediately.
Florida Blood Services is urging blood donors to make an appointment, to walk into any branch location or mobile unit as soon as possible.
If you don’t know your blood type, the best way to find out is to donate blood!
Blood donations profoundly affect the lives of patients in our community. In many cases one donation could impact or even save the lives of three patients. Generally, healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. Click for oneblood donation locations or call 850-473-3853 for additional eligibility questions.
