URGENT: Mayo Clinic Asking All in Minnesota With B- Blood to Donate Immediately
Roll Up Your Sleeves! There's an Urgent Need for B- Blood Donors in Southeast Minnesota.
Donation centers are open now at 2 locations in Rochester, Minnesota to help with the urgent and immediate need for B- blood.
According to the Mayo Clinic, less than 2% of the population has B- blood, so it is a very rare blood type. Patients who have B- blood can only receive B- blood or the universal blood type, O-, so when the supply of B- is in short supply it is almost like needing to shout from the mountain tops hoping that individuals with B-blood hear the message.
