WHY: MEDIC currently has a critical inventory of O Negative, O Positive and A Negative blood donations. Donors with those blood types are encouraged to donate as soon as possible if they are eligible.
MEDIC saw fewer donors during the month of December while seeing a steady or increased usage of blood products.
As a reminder, the blood on the shelves now is what would be used in a trauma event and it takes three days for donated blood to be processed and ready for distribution.
