According to the Red Cross webpage and emails I have received, donors cannot give blood if they have taken experimental vaccines or drugs. ALL of the Covid “vaccines” are experimental, not totally approved by the FDA, and do not even meet the criteria for a vaccine according to the CDC. But I have been told by several at the Red Cross that they do not even ask anyone if they have had the shot(s). It does stay in a person’s blood, thus blood clots, etc. So facing lung cancer surgery has now been magnified by trying to find blood donors who have not had the shots or finding a hospital that uses the cell saver machine.
Blood from vaccinated donors is safe for patients
With COVID-19 vaccines, the mRNA or viral-vector vaccine is broken down quickly once it enters the body’s cells and there is no evidence that transfused blood collected from donors who were previously vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccine poses any harm to patients.
From the Red Cross website:
The Red Cross is following FDA blood donation eligibility guidance for those who receive the COVID-19 vaccination. Deferral times for donations may vary depending on which brand of vaccine you received. If you’ve received a COVID-19 vaccine, you’ll need to provide the manufacturer name when you come to donate. In most cases, there is no deferral time for individuals who received a COVID-19 vaccine as long as they are symptom-free and feeling well at the time of donation.
The following eligibility guidelines apply to each COVID-19 vaccine received, including boosters:
- There is no deferral time for eligible blood donors who are vaccinated with a non-replicating inactivated or RNA-based COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by AstraZeneca, Janssen/J&J, Moderna, Novavax, or Pfizer.
- Eligible blood donors who received a live attenuated COVID-19 vaccine or do not know what type of COVID-19 vaccine they received must wait two weeks before giving blood.
