LifeSouth needs blood donors to help as blood supply decreases

SHARE NOW

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The community blood supply has reached a critical point, and LifeSouth Community Blood Centers has declared they are now in emergency need.

In the past weeks, the blood supply has steadily dropped, as the need from hospitals has increased. All blood types are crucial to help make sure hospitals have the blood needed to treat traumas and patients requiring blood transfusions.

LifeSouth asks all blood donors, especially type O and B donors, to please come in and donate, and reminds the public that it is safe to donate blood.

All blood donors receive a recognition item and wellness screen, including a COVID-19 antibody test. Donors are welcome to walk-in and give.  Appointments can be made by visiting www.lifesouth.org or by calling 1-800-795-2707. Donors must be 17 or older, or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. A photo ID is also required.
