LANSING, Mich (WILX) – January is National Blood Donor Month and blood banks say donations are needed more than ever

Nationwide, blood products including plasma are in great demand and in short supply. Some communities have been able to donate blood, but the majority of donations are made in permanent centers

Experts say blood donation is vital to surviving many injuries and infections, and blood banks go above and beyond to keep the donation process safe during the pandemic

« We need anyone who can donate a unit of blood, » said Dr Claudia Cohn, Chief Medical Officer of AABB « We know we ask a lot because everyone is exhausted »

The donation process takes approx 5-10 minutes Those who received the flu shot can continue to donate safely

« I’d say donating a unit of blood is safer than going to a typical grocery store, » said Cohn,
