(WEHT) The American Red Cross is in need of blood donations and is urging donors of all blood types to give blood.

The Red Cross says a severe flu season could create challenges to maintaining a sufficient blood supply for hospital patients in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

They also want to remind people that there is no waiting period after receiving a flu shot as long as the donor is symptom-free and has no fever. The red cross is also testing all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies.
