MEDIC’s O Positive inventory level remains unstable and is currently critically low. Critical means that there are less than a two-day supply.   

As a reminder, the blood, platelets, and plasma products on the shelves now is what would be used in a trauma event and it takes at least three days for donated blood to be processed and ready for distribution.  

All donors will receive a MEDIC gift and Texas Roadhouse coupon. All donors are automatically entered to win the $500 E-Gift Card.  

Note: MEDIC is requiring all donors to wear a mask or face covering. If a donor does not have a mask or face covering, MEDIC will provide one.
