The Red Cross – which supplies about 40% of the nation’s blood – has had to limit blood product distributions to hospitals as a result of the shortage. At times, as much as one-quarter of hospital blood needs are not being met. To boost the blood supply, the Red Cross has changed the Power Red eligibility requirement to include A+ and B+ blood types. For more information, you may call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
