Flu Causing Blood Shortage In Texoma

Posted:

SHERMAN, TX -- Because of the flu and other illnesses going around in our area, The Texoma Blood Center says donations have been very low.

They say they had to cancel one drive this week because the company they were going to said that half of their employees were out due to illness and the other half that were at work weren't feeling that great.

The center says they need all eligible donors (with all blood types) who are in good health and feeling well to come to the Texoma Regional Blood Center on the Texoma Parkway to donate a pint of blood.

The center is open until 5:30 Thursday and Friday 8:00 to 5:30.

Saturday they will be open from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm.

The center says they are in urgent need of O positive and B positive donors.  

They will be we at B&B Food Store in Leonard from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm.
