Allina hosts blood drive Friday

Allina Medical Clinic in Forest Lake, is hosting a blood drive through the American Red Cross from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday, June 29.

The American Red Cross has an urgent need for types O negative and positive, B negative and A negative blood donations. The declining inventory of available blood products is most significant for types O negative and positive, B negative and A negative blood – the blood types most in demand because they can be potentially transfused to Rh positive and negative patients.

Walk-ins are welcome on Friday, but advance registration to donate blood is recommended. To register, call the clinic at 651-241-1541.
