Blood donations are usually low this time of year (after the holidays), but with the number of people sick with the flu, donations have been lower than usual, according to the American Red Cross.
Kristen Hatfield, a spokeswoman for the Mid-Atlantic Region Red Cross, which covers Hampton Roads, said all blood types are needed, but especially blood types most in demand at the moment are type O-negative and B-negative.
