Canadian Blood Services is appealing to all eligible donors to make a blood donation immediately to increase Canada’s critically low blood inventory. All blood donors are needed, in particular those with type O and A blood.
In recent months extremely low attendance at blood donor clinics across Canada in combination with the constant need for blood has caused the national inventory to be used faster than it can be replenished. This has created the lowest national blood inventory since 2008.
The permanent clinic on Wharncliffe beside Tiger JACK’s is open today until 7pm and tomorrow noon – 8pm! Drop in and DONATE today. PLEASE!
Approximately 52 per cent of Canadians say they, or a family member, have needed blood or blood products for surgery or for medical treatment. Every minute of every day someone in Canada needs blood.
To meet anticipated hospital demand, Canadian Blood Services regularly collects 17,000 units of blood per week. On top of that regular requirement, we now need an immediate 7,500 blood donations, to replenish our lower than required inventory.
Soon Canadian Blood Services will have less than three days’ worth of inventory of our major blood groups on hand. The ideal level of inventory for blood products is between five and eight days.
To book an appointment today, download the GiveBlood app, visit blood.ca or call 1 888 2 DONATE (1 888 236 6283).
