Type B Positive Blood

Your blood type is relatively rare. Just nine percent of the population is B Positive. Despite that fact, your blood donation can benefit patients with many other blood types. Platelets are the most powerful component of B Positive Donor’s blood. Your plasma can be used to help more than half of all people. Your red blood cells can be used to save other B Positive patients like yourself, as well as those with AB Positive blood, another rare blood type.
