Lee Health is in urgent need of blood donations to help replenish low supply levels.

The coronavirus pandemic has led to many canceled blood drives and the depletion of the health system’s supply.

Type O+ remains critically low, and supply levels for all other blood types are also below normal. Lee Health is asking the community to please consider making a donation.

“We are in critical need of donations as blood inventories are at some of their lowest levels since the start of the pandemic,” said Jeremy Puckett, Blood Center supervisor at Lee Health.

The Lee Health Blood Mobile will be at numerous locations throughout Southwest Florida in January.
