Lifeline Blood Services says they are experiencing a low supply of blood in West Tennessee due to the pandemic.

Not enough people have been able to get out and donate blood at traditional locations due to COVID-19 restrictions.

“75 percent of the blood that is collected for patients comes from these Blood Mobile units,” said Lifeline Blood Services Public Relations and Fundraising Coordinator Cherie Parker. “We are insuring safety for you as you give blood. Giving blood is essential activity during this time.”
