OBI Urges Healthy Adults to Give Blood May 29


As coronavirus concerns continue, blood donation remains an essential health care activity.

Oklahoma Blood Institute will host a blood drive in Vian on Friday, May 29, from 1 to 6 p.m. in the bloodmobile parked at Marvin’s IGA. Healthy donors are urged to give blood, and appointments are strongly encouraged to allow for recommended social distancing.

Oklahoma Blood Institute supports the inventory needed for patients in more than 160 hospitals, medical facilities and air ambulances statewide.   

“We urge healthy adults to donate blood so that the supply can be maintained for our local patients who depend on blood products during treatment for cancer, traumatic injuries and other life-threatening conditions,” said John Armitage, M.D., president and CEO of Oklahoma Blood Institute.

Oklahoma Blood Institute’s donor centers and mobile blood drives have instituted additional cleaning methods, decontaminating work and common areas and equipment frequently. In addition, donor centers and mobile blood drives have been adapted to allow for social distancing. All phlebotomy staff will wear masks. Staff members and donors will also have their temperatures taken before starting work or entering the facility, to ensure only healthy individuals are present.

Oklahoma Blood Institute is following recommendations and guidelines set forth by the FDA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and AABB (formerly American Association of Blood Banks). Oklahoma Blood Institute is committed to maintaining the safest standards for blood collection, testing and transfusion.

The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) reports no cases of COVID-19 transmitted through blood transfusion, and respiratory viruses generally are not known to be transmitted by blood transfusion. 

Blood donation typically takes only about an hour, and one donation saves up to three lives. Appointments can be made by calling or texting Greg at 479-652-2362, or visiting obi.org. More information on Oklahoma Blood Institute can be found at obi.org.

  1. The simple truth about binary options which many of us do not know is the fact that it is mainly based on predictions. Without proper knowledge of what next can happen to the stock market, you are sure to lose your funds. That is why it is important to be tutored or mentored by a professional trader in binary options. During few days of being mentored by Mrs Doris Ashley I've learnt much and also succeeding in trades and has been doing successful withdrawals and was able to recover all my lost funds. Feel free to contact her on Dorisashley52@gmail. com or whatsapp her +1 (516) 494 0313.for positive results
