LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Las Vegas Ballpark and Vitalant are teaming up for a blood drive on March 7. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the ballpark’s Playstudios Club.

Vitalant says the continuous cancellation of thousands of blood drives has caused a critical shortage of O positive and O negative blood types.

They ask all those who attend to adhere to social distancing guidelines. You must also wear a mask, and temperature checks will be performed.

COVID-19 antibody testing is included with successful donations. Your results will be available within two weeks, and those who receive a positive result may donate convalescent plasma to help those combatting the virus.

The address for Sunday’s blood drive is 1650 S. Pavilion Center Drive, Las Vegas 89135.
