Red Cross needs healthy donors needed to maintain blood supply – Beckley Register-Herald

Red Cross needs healthy donors

As influenza activity picks up this fall, the American Red Cross is urging healthy donors of all blood types to give blood or platelets to ensure a strong blood supply for patients in need.

All blood types are needed, especially platelet donors and those with type O blood.

Blood and platelets can only be given by donors who are feeling well. One way to maintain health is to get a flu vaccine each fall.
