Inland Northwest Blood Center in need of donations

The requested blood, particularly universal donor Type O-negative, will likely go to replenish regional reserves that are now headed to Las Vegas hospitals where victims were taken, said Kent Corley, a spokesman for Blood Centers of the Pacific.

Bonfils Blood Center had a steady flow of people coming forward. Also, the amount of blood needed in Las Vegas is unknown with such a high number of patients related to the shooting.

Blood products have a shelf life of 42 days for red blood cells and 5 days for platelets, therefore, United Blood Services is always in need of donations to replenish the supply, a release said.

(Central Coast, CA) - Our sister United Blood Services blood center in Las Vegas has provided almost 200 units of blood and blood products so far to area hospitals treating victims of the concert shooting last night.

"Just a reminder gay people are still not allowed to donate blood unless you're a homosexual who hasn't had sex in a year like Mike Pence", another wrote, acerbically.

The need for blood, she said, is constant.

Under current United States laws, as in many other countries, if you're a man who has sex with men (MSM), you can not donate blood unless you've abstained from sex for at least 12 months.

If you want to donate, the Inland Northwest Blood Center recommends you make an appointment ahead of time.
