(Central Coast, CA) - Our sister United Blood Services blood center in Las Vegas has provided almost 200 units of blood and blood products so far to area hospitals treating victims of the concert shooting last night.

While O-positive, O-negative and platelet donations are most needed after a tradegy, Bonfils urges existing and first-time donors of all blood types to donate.

While we are in awe of the incredible outpouring of support from the hundreds of local residents and from those across the country, it's important to note that in any situation where blood transfusions are needed, it's the blood already on the shelf that saves lives. Corley said regional donations will be needed in the coming days to replenish the blood supply. We strongly encourage donors to schedule a donation appointment by calling 877-UBS-HERO (877-827-4376) or by visiting bloodhero.com. Monday, they are dealing with heavy traffic from people looking to make a difference. "Blood Assurance stands ready to send aid to our Las Vegas partners if they need our help".

"I saw the plea for blood donors in Vegas and wanted to do something to help", said Deanna Barela.

Facebook admits it promoted fake Vegas massacre stories
Twitter Inc. also is facing heat over the prevalence of anonymous, automated accounts - or bots - on its platform. Facebook has set up a crisis response page so people who are in Las Vegas can let people know they are safe.

While Ayer said the blood bank is good right now he stressed the importance for people to donate on a regular basis to keep supplies full.

Donors that came in after learning about the shooting understood their blood may not leave the state but they're still motivated to help out those in need.

Most people older than age 16 and weighing more than 110 pounds are eligible to donate.
