Type O negative and A negative blood reserves are at critical levels with other types at less than optimum reserves
With health officials warning that the flu season has another three to four weeks remaining and more inclement weather to come, officials at Community Blood Center of the Ozarks are calling on donors to give immediately. Reserves of type O negative and A negative blood are at critical levels, with other types at less than optimum reserves. If you are feeling healthy, please share your health with others by giving soon for local patients.
