Vitalant Announces Critical Blood Shortage

Vitalant in Arizona has announced a critical appeal for types O-negative and O-positive blood, which means that we have less that a 2-day supply.  Since it takes up to 48 hours to test and process blood before it can be released to a hospital, they are going through those blood types faster than they can replace them. With a daily need of 600 blood donors, it will take several days, if not weeks, to rebuild Arizona’s blood supply to adequate levels.  Vitalant is asking people to visit to find a location and make an appointment to donate blood as soon as possible. In appreciation, all donors through Jan. 15 will be thanked with a voucher for a one-day admission to the Waste Management Phoenix Open, compliments of the tournament sponsors.
