With a severe flu season upon us, the American Red Cross is requesting eligible blood and platelet donors make an appointment to donate blood soon. As the number of people with the flu grows, there may be a notable decrease in the number of healthy blood and platelet donors available to sustain the blood supply. Currently, all blood types are needed but there is an urgent need for types O negative and B negative donations.
