Are COVID-19 Vaccinated Blood Transfusions Dangerous?!

Did Japanese researchers warn that COVID-19 vaccinated blood transfusions are dangerous?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : COVID-19 Vaccinated Blood Transfusions Are Dangerous!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The Expose (formerly Daily Expose), which claims that an official study just showed that COVID-19 vaccines cause VAIDS (Vaccine-Induced Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) in children! Here is an excerpt:

Truth : COVID-19 Vaccinated Blood Transfusions Are Not Dangerous!

This is yet another example of fake news created or promoted by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : It’s A Pre-Print Article That Was Not Peer-Reviewed

Let me start by pointing out that the paper (PDF) by Ueda et. al. is a pre-print that has not been peer-reviewed – the first step in any scientific review process!

In other words – no one should draw any conclusion from this paper, when it has not even passed pre-publication peer review, never mind post-publication verification and criticism by other scientists.

Fact #2 : Ueda Et. Al. Is A Narrative Review Paper

I should also point out that the Ueda et. al. paper is just a “narrative review” or a “literature review”, which basically offers an overview of existing research, and its quality would be highly dependent on the research papers it features.

Unfortunately, it appears to feature even debunked articles like the infamous Spikeopathy paper by Peter Parry et. al., and the equally infamous AESI paper by Joseph Fraiman et. al., as well as papers by Stephanie Seneff and Peter McCullough, amongst other controversial people.

Fact #3 : Paper Does Not Prove Vaccinated Blood Transfusion Is Dangerous

As far as I can tell – the paper provided no actual evidence that the transfusion of COVID-19 vaccinated blood is dangerous, especially when it relies on debunked articles (example | example). Even its title suggests that it is only listing “concerns” and not actual “proof”.

The article’s emphasis on the spike protein appears to ignore the fact that vaccine spike proteins are created on cell surfaces and vaccines do not multiply, while COVID-19 infections produce far more spike proteins because the virus multiplies, and those viral particles (and their spike proteins) can freely travel in the blood!

In addition – the spike protein isn’t exclusive to COVID-19, and is a feature of all coronaviruses, including that that cause the common flu! If such spike proteins are toxic, then practically blood from every human being (who has ever had the common flu or other coronavirus infections) would be toxic.

Fact #4 : Red Cross Says Vaccinated Blood Safe For Transfusion

After recent claims that blood donors were being rejected or deferred because they were COVID-vaccinated, the American Red Cross responded that it follows FDA regulations and protocols, and that vaccinated blood are safe for transfusions.

Donations from those who have been vaccinated for COVID-19 are safe for transfusion. Similar to other vaccines such as measles, mumps or influenza, the COVID-19 vaccine is designed to generate an immune response to help protect an individual from illness. The vaccine components themselves are not found within the blood stream.

Fact #5 : Blood Of Vaccinated People Is Safe For Transfusion

It isn’t just the Red Cross that claims that the blood of COVID-19 vaccinated people are safe for transfusions. Other organisations like the Association for the Advancement of Blood & Biotherapies and America’s Blood Centers issued a joint statement with the American Red Cross on this very issue:

Amid ongoing misinformation about COVID-19 vaccinations and blood donation, America’s Blood Centers, the Association for the Advancement of Blood & Biotherapies (AABB), and the American Red Cross reiterate the safety of America’s blood supply and assure the public that vaccines do not pose a risk to patients receiving blood transfusions.

Blood donations from individuals who have received a COVID-19 vaccine approved or authorized for use in the U.S. are safe for transfusion. Similar to other vaccines such as those for measles, mumps or influenza, COVID-19 vaccines are designed to generate an immune response to help protect an individual from illness, but vaccine components themselves do not replicate through blood transfusions or alter a blood recipients’ DNA.

In summary, there is no scientific evidence that demonstrates adverse outcomes from the transfusions of blood products collected from vaccinated donors and, therefore, no medical reason to distinguish or separate blood donations from individuals who have received a COVID-19 vaccination.

On multiple occasions, the Food and Drug Administration has confirmed that there is no evidence to support concerns related to the safety of blood donated by vaccinated individuals.

All Americans, including both blood donors and blood recipients, should feel confident that receiving a blood transfusion is safe. COVID-19 vaccines do not replicate, and all blood donations offer the same life-saving therapeutic benefits, regardless of the vaccination status of the donor.

Fact #6 : The Expose Is A Notorious Fake News Website

Like Real Raw News and NewsPunch, Daily Expose is a website that capitalises on making shocking but fake or misleading stories to generate page views and money. It was later rebranded as The Expose.

Founded in November 2020 by Jonathan Allen-Walker – a mechanic from Lincolnshire, The Expose / Daily Expose is infamous for publishing COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news or misinformation, so you should NEVER share anything from Daily Expose / The Expose. Here are some of its stories that I personally debunked earlier:

Everything posted by The Expose / Daily Expose must be considered fake news, until proven otherwise.
