(WKBN) – As the COVID-19 vaccine becomes more available to people across the Valley, the American Red Cross wants to remind the community the blood donations are still needed this spring.

Donors, especially with type O blood, are needed in May to make sure blood products are available for patients through summer.

The American Red Cross said there’s no waiting period after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine as long as the donor is symptom-free, feels well and can give the vaccine manufacturer’s name.

Anyone who donates blood, platelets or plasma in May will be entered for a chance to win a travel trailer camper. Those who donate May 1 through May 15 will also get a $5 Amazon gift card.
