– Statewide, Ariz. - A national blood shortage is further stressing the nation’s fragile healthcare system. Vitalant, which services about 900 hospitals across 28 states, including 62 in Arizona, is currently experiencing a historic, two-year low blood supply. The fast-spreading omicron variant is the latest COVID-19 complication forcing additional community blood drives to cancel and lessening the number of healthy and available donors.  Donors are urged to make an appointment now: visit vitalant.org or call 877-25-VITAL (877-258-4825)

Yuma & Wellton locations listed below.

All eligible donors, especially those with the most transfused blood type O, which is currently at less than half of the desired four-day supply, are critically needed to make an appointment now to give in the days and weeks ahead. As a special thank you during January, National Blood Donor Month, January Vitalant blood donors will be entered into the $5,000 Big Game Giveaway to win one of four, $5,000 prepaid gift cards redeemable by email and be thanked with a voucher for a one-day entry into the Arizona Renaissance Festival.*
