Less than 7% of the population has O- blood, yet it's universally compatible for anyone. O+ is highly demanded due to its prevalence, and platelets have a mere 7-day shelf life. This highlights the constant need for type O blood and platelet donors. If you can help, please schedule a donation appointment today. Remember, any blood type or platelet donation can make a lifesaving difference.
