CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Hoxworth Blood Center is in urgent need for blood donations to prevent shortages at local hospitals.

Fewer people have been donating due to inclement weather and seasonal illness, according to Hoxworth and University of Cincinnati officials.

Donors of all blood types are needed, officials say. The most critical need is for type O Negative blood.

Hoxworth operates eight Neighborhood Donor Centers in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. View the location list here.

Donating takes about an hour and appointments are recommended.
