The Vinton County June Bloodmobile Charity Event Vinton 2009

The Vinton County June Bloodmobile Vinton 2009

As summer progresses and temperatures rise, the need for blood donations increases as well.

Last week, six of the eight blood types dropped to critically low levels at less than a half day supply each. In order to meet the needs of patients in 39 local hospitals, the region needs to maintain a minimum three-day supply of all eight blood types. Citizens of Vinton County will have a chance to help with this critical need.

Appointments to donate blood at the bloodmobile can be made by calling 1-800-GIVE-LIFE and walk-ins are welcome. Most healthy people who are at least 17 years old and weigh 110 pounds or more are eligible to donate every 56 days.
