MEDIC Regional Blood Center currently has a critically low inventory of O Negative, O Positive and A Negative blood donations. Donors with those blood types are encouraged to donate as soon as possible if they are eligible.
Beginning Wednesday, Jan. 8, donors also receive their choice of MEDIC shirt and a Texas Roadhouse coupon.
MEDIC saw fewer donors during the month of December while seeing a steady or increased usage of blood products.
MEDIC Regional Blood Center Donor Centers are located in downtown Knoxville, Farragut, Athens and Crossville.
