Winter storms and flu affect blood donations

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – More than 600 Red Cross blood drives have been canceled due to the flu and winter storms.

In 2018, the canceled blood drives have resulted in more than 17,500 uncollected blood and platelet donations. The flu across the U.S. has resulted in lower turnout at blood drives.

Donations are needed in the coming days to help replenish the blood supply.

Multiple donation opportunities will be available in northeast Indiana February 16th through the 28th.
