Oklahoma Facing Critical Blood Supply Shortage!
The state of Oklahoma is facing a critical blood shortage and needs your help. Right now there's only a one day total supply of blood products. Typically there's a three to five day supply on hand, but it's been depleted and donors are needed to relish the supply. The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the primary causes of the shortage. Now that things are improving and people are starting to get back to their lives, so there's a real need for blood and blood products. Hospitals have returned to doing surgeries and elective procedures, this along with the standard need for blood has health experts worried.

The OBI (Oklahoma Blood Institute) is in desperate need of blood and plasma donors. We're facing a community, state and even National blood shortage. The supply faces constant need and requires replenishing regularly. Blood and blood products have a shelf life and are perishable. Meaning if blood donors don't donate, the supply runs out.
