25% Drop In December Blood Donations Cause Shortage

Chicot Memorial

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi Blood Services says there’s a blood shortage as donations fell 25 percent last month. While they normally see a decrease during the holiday season, MBS says the weather and flu season have worsened the drop and partners in other states just don’t have enough units to share to help lessen Mississippi’s shortage. Previous drops in blood supply have forced hospitals to cancel elective surgeries.
