MVHS to host blood drive at St. Luke’s campus

Posted

UTICA — The Mohawk Valley Health System will host a blood drive from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 3, at the St. Luke’s Campus in the Allen-Calder Conference Rooms 1 & 2 at 1656 Champlin Ave.

Because of critically low blood supply, blood product distribution to hospitals is being limited across the country, the announcement said, adding that more than 80% of patients can receive type O positive blood, making it the most common and sought after blood type. Any donation will help combat the national blood shortage.

Appointments are encouraged and can be made by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS or by going online to redcrossblood.org
