Is it about blood itself? or something that is done with it (eg usage?

Is it to do with blood plasma? Blood clots? Blood oranges? Scabbing?

People believe that hospitals/blood banks always have enough blood of all types?
Nimue ignored my first question?
Misconception that blood doesn't have types? That blood is just blood.
This brings to mind a yo mamma joke, yo mamma is so fat her blood type is Ragu.
Misconception is that if you take medications that you cannot donate blood because no one can use it?
Some other excuse for not giving blood relevant?

Relevant that blood can be more than negative or positive, or people assume blood must be one or the other and cannot be neither?

Does it have to do with the belief that blood can be changed to be the type needed? That would be strange. I've never heard of that.

Does it have to do with some blood types being more common for people of a particular race or ethnicity?

Hmmm...misconceptions about giving blood...
Feeling drained and tired after donating?
Blood pressure will go down?
That the donor will be low on blood afterward?
The donor will feel dizzy and may faint? (I suppose if they have a fear of needles, this could happen)
That the donor could get AIDS or some other disease?
That donating is painful throughout the process?

Other people must be giving enough blood, so they don't need mine?
The donor gives their blood for free and the Blood Center sells it to someone else?
The donors only need to donate once (or some limited number of times) a year?
Donor has anemia, high blood pressure and/or diabetes so he/she cannot donate?
Donor has a tattoo or piercing so he/she cannot donate?

Who has the misconception? People who receive transfusions? Blood donors? people who draw blood? everyone? People not in the medical field (largely)? Does the misconception have to do with receiving blood from someone else? Something foolish like getting a blood transfusion from a woman would make a man gay?

Does this misconception relate to any religion? Jehovah's Witnesses?
The misconception have to do with why the body does / does not reject blood from an unrelated individual?
That blood is free?
Blood that comes from donors who are paid cannot be used for transfusions?

I need a clarification here: Are we talking about blood from the POV of the donor or the person who receives it? or the medical staff?
If the donor, are 'universal donors' relevant?

Is the scrund that the more "letters" one has in the type, the more "versatile" the blood, whereas in fact it's the opposite (i.e., type AB blood can ONLY be received by those of type AB, whereas type O is universal).

Is how long the blood is stored relevant?
Is what temperature the blood is stored relevant?
Is the misconception that close family relatives are the best donors relevant?

Do they falsely believe that if person X can give blood to person Y, then Y can definitely give blood to X (factors besides blood-type nonwithsdtanding). If X had A and Y had AB, then X could give blood to Y, but Y couldn't give blood to X. Something like this relevant?

Dracula relevant?
So, it's about blood types, donors, and recipents, but not in the sense of giving the blood?

Does the scrund have to do with people believing they will die as a result? Become diseased? Change in some way?

is the scrund to do with inheritance of blood types from parent to child? is it to do with which blood type a child could have given the types of their parents? is the scrund that a child will have the same blood type as one of their parents? or that they will not? is it relevant that a child may have a completely different blood type to both their parents? but that it can only be one of a predictable set?

***** SPOILER *******************
A few years ago, one of my friends told me that she gives blood as often as permitted, since she has the rarest blood type in the world: AB negative. I asked why anyone would need her blood; couldn't people with her blood type get any negative blood: O, A, B, or AB? She said that was just for emergencies. Otherwise it's always best to receive blood of your own type. How many of you had this scrund? Regardless of whether you did, please check out my new puzzle!!

I didn't have this scrund, but everyone in my family has a common blood type, so it doesn't affect me as much. Though I do know someone with AB blood.
