Vitalant's blood supply is being severely impacted by the coronavirus. Covid-19 isn't only effecting income but people's health as well. Vitalant has had to cancel over 1,400 blood drives. By canceling over 1,400 blood drives is about 41,000 blood donations that aren't collected. That means a great amount of blood isn't available for those who need it. Since Vitalant has had to cancel blood drives they still could use your help. If you're healthy, they're recommending you to schedule an appointment as soon as you can to donate blood.

In order for Vitalant to better serve you please call this number 877-25-VITAL that's 877-258-4825. If you would prefer to schedule your appointment online visit Vitalant's website. I strongly encourage you to please donate because at one point my life depended on a blood transfusion. After giving birth I had some complications and lost 2 units of blood and needed a blood transfusion. You don't know how many lives you truly save when you donate blood. So if you're healthy and can spare some time, please call Vitalant to schedule your appointment to donate blood.
