Virginia Blood Services is in very short supply of AB plasma. We need to ensure we have enough plasma to supply our local hospitals, especially as we enter into December and the holiday season.
Plasma is a blood component that stabilizes patients who have experienced severe trauma. One plasma donor can impact four lives.
We strongly encourage type AB donors to be the giving type and donate plasma in the coming days and weeks. Type AB blood donors are the universal plasma donor. Regardless of blood type, all patients can receive AB plasma. Plasma-only donations are the best way for type AB donors to help patients who are fighting for their lives.
