(WTVG) - The American Red Cross has put out a call for more type O blood.

According to the Red Cross, influenza and other illnesses across the country have prevented some donors from giving, and winter weather threatening to cancel blood drives, there is a critical shortage of type O blood.

Donors of all blood types – especially types O positive and O negative – are urged to make an appointment to give blood or platelets now using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.
