MEDIC Regional Blood Center currently has a critical inventory of O Negative and O Positive blood. Eligible O Negative and O Positive donors are encouraged to donate as soon as possible.
It also has a low inventory of A Negative.
MEDIC has seen fewer donors during the holiday season 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.
All donors receive a $10 e-gift card to use at over 100 organizations. The cards are sent via email within 48 hours of donating. Donors also receive their choice of MEDIC shirt and a Texas Roadhouse coupon.
