Critical Need for Blood Donors – Blood Types O, B and A Needed Immediately

Inova Blood Donor Services needs blood donations from local blood donors now to help boost the blood supply for our community. The current blood supply levels are critically low and can only be replenished with donations from volunteer blood donors. The need is highest for blood donors with blood types of O+, O-, B+, B-, A- and A+.

It is imperative to increase and maintain the blood supply to support our community’s sickest patients. Inova Blood Donor Services supports a Level One Trauma Center and two Level Three Trauma Centers. The need for blood never stops and there is no substitute for human blood when it is needed for a patient.

It is safe to donate blood. Inova Blood Donor Services has several safety measures in place due to COVID-19 to provide a safe donation experience for blood donors who visit their local donor center. Generous donors are needed now to ensure we can continue to provide an adequate and safe blood supply for our community’s patients. Each donation can save up to three lives and takes less than an hour to donate.
