Héma-Québec is calling for blood donors in an effort to shore up Quebec’s blood bank reserves.

The agency said on Wednesday is needs to collect an additional 500 blood donations to make up for a drop in the supply of all blood types, but particularly in types O Rh negative, A Rh positive and A Rh negative.

Héma-Québec notes that each blood donation can help save three lives. However between the summer vacation period and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that supply dwindles as the health care system’s demands remain unchanged.

The agency is urging donors to book an appointment on their website or by calling 1-800-343-7264.
