Carson City

United Blood Services needs O-type blood

There is an urgent need for all O- positive and -negative blood types. High local usage has left the local blood supply of red cells low.

Red blood cells, plasma, cryo and platelets are all needed, of all types. People with O-negative blood are called “universal donors” because anyone can take their blood type without a bad reaction.

However, all blood types are accepted.

For information or to schedule an appointment, call 887-9111.
