Is Japan going to ban vaccinated blood donation?!

Is Japan proposing to ban vaccinated people from donating their ‘tainted blood’?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Japan Is Going To Ban Vaccinated Blood Donation!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed that Japan is proposing to ban vaccinated people from donating their ‘tainted blood’!

Japan To Ban Vaccinated People From Donating ‘Tainted Blood’

Recommended : Are COVID-19 Vaccinated Blood Transfusions Dangerous?!

 

Truth : Japan Is Not Going To Ban Vaccinated Blood Donation!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Japan Is Not Going To Ban Vaccinated Blood Donation

Let me start by pointing out that Japan has not proposed banning vaccinated people from donating their blood, because it’s apparently ‘tainted’. There was no such announcement by the Japanese government.

If that actually occurred, it would have been reported worldwide. Yet there has been no legitimate news report of such a proposal. That’s because it never happened.

Fact #2 : The People’s Voice Provided No Evidence

Not surprisingly, The People’s Voice article never provided any evidence that Japan is proposing to ban vaccinated people from donating their blood, or that the Japanese government considers the blood of vaccinated people to be dangerous.

Fact #3 : Pre-Print Paper Offers No Actual Evidence

These claims are based on a pre-print paper by Ueda et. al. that has not even undergone the most basic, first step of the scientific review process – peer-review.

It is also a literature review that appears to heavily feature 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.

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

Fact #4 : Blood Of Vaccinated People Is Safe For Transfusion

After people baselessly claimed that vaccinated blood is dangerous, the American Red Cross, the Association for the Advancement of Blood & Biotherapies, and America’s Blood Centers, issued a joint statement to refute those claims:

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 #5 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Did Japan Study Prove Vaccinated Blood Is Dangerous?!

Did a new study from Japan prove that vaccinated blood is dangerous?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Japan Study Proves mRNA Vaccinated Blood Is Dangerous!

People are sharing links to a new study from Japan, while claiming / suggesting that it proves that mRNA vaccinated blood is dangerous, and mRNA vaccination should be stopped!

Adam Gaertner : Vaccinated blood is poisonous and contaminated.

New study from Japan 🇯🇵:

“… we call the attention of medical professionals to the various risks associated with blood transfusions using blood products derived from […] genetic vaccine recipients.”

Recommended : Is Red Cross Rejecting COVID Vaccinated Blood?!

 

Truth : Japan Study Did Not Prove Vaccinated Blood Is 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 in question 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.

You can download and read the paper by Ueda et. al. called Concerns regarding Transfusions of Blood Products Derived from Genetic Vaccine Recipients and Proposals for Specific Measures here – PDF.

Fact #2 : It Was 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 Is Dangerous

As far as I can tell – the paper provided no actual evidence that 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.

Does Red Cross Test COVID-Vaccinated Blood Donations?

Does the Red Cross test blood donations from COVID-19 vaccinated donors? Take a look at the drama, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Red Cross Does Not Test Vaccinated Blood Donations!

People are sharing video clips of other people making calls to the Red Cross, asking if any test is conducted on the blood donations they received from COVID-19 vaccinated people.

They appear to be suggesting or implying that the vaccinated blood contain spike proteins, and/or that the Red Cross wants unvaccinated people to receive vaccinated blood. Cue the (feigned?) shock, horror and outrage on social media…

DC_Draino :The Red Cross has some explaining to do

We now know they ask your C19 vax status but it’s not for reasons most expect

We dug deeper & found *Big Pharma* execs are on the Board

And they want vaxxed blood pumped into the unvaxxed

Recommended : Is Red Cross Rejecting COVID Vaccinated Blood?!

 

Truth : Red Cross Tests Vaccinated Blood Donations!

This is yet another example of fake news circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Red Cross Tests Vaccinated Blood Donations!

Let me start by pointing out that the American Red Cross conducts tests on all blood donations, whether they are from donors vaccinated against COVID-19, or unvaccinated donors.

This is clearly stated in the American Red Cross website, which anyone can locate with a quick search online. For your convenience, here is what they currently test blood donations for:

Blood donations are tested for multiple disease markers.

On top of that, the American Red Cross also conducts the usual tests for red blood cell antigen genotyping, leukocyte antigen and antibody, and human platelet antigen genotyping.

To be clear – all blood donations undergo tests for multiple disease markers, regardless of whether they were donated by people vaccinated against COVID-19, or otherwise.

Fact #2 : Red Cross Used To Test For COVID-19 Antibodies

Even before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented, the American Red Cross did not test its blood products for the spike protein. Instead, it tested all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies from June 2020 until June 2021 (source).

However, that was not because COVID-19 can spread through blood, because not a single case of such an infection has been reported to date. Rather, the American Red Cross tested for COVID-19 antibodies in those blood donations for two reasons:

  • to provide blood donors insight into whether they may have been exposed to COVID-19
  • to identify potential convalescent plasma donors

This COVID-19 antibody testing program ceased after a majority of Americans received their COVID-19 vaccinations, and the American Red Cross stopped its own convalescent plasma collection program.

Fact #3 : Blood Of Vaccinated People Are Safe For Transfusions

On 27 January 2023, Red Cross, the Association for the Advancement of Blood & Biotherapies and America’s Blood Centers issued a joint statement to combat misinformation about blood donated by vaccinated people. They stated, unequivocally, that blood of vaccinated people are safe for transfusions:

The following statement has been issued by AABB, America’s Blood Centers and the American Red Cross regarding misinformation concerning COVID-19 vaccines and blood donations:

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.

All blood collection organizations in the U.S. are required to follow Food and Drug Administration guidelines and regulations to collect, process and distribute blood products for patients in need. The FDA explicitly allows donors who have recently received approved or authorized COVID-19 vaccines to give blood as long as they are healthy on the day of donation and meet all other eligibility criteria. 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.

Recommended : Why Red Cross Don’t Separate COVID Vaccinated Blood!

Fact #4 : Vaccinated People Would Have Antibodies In Blood

There is no reason to be worried about spike proteins in the blood of people who were vaccinated against COVID-19, because they would have antibodies that would attach to any circulating spike proteins.

COVID-19 vaccines work by triggering our own immune system to recognise, and create antibodies against, the spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Those antibodies circulate in the blood, and attach to the spike protein of any invading SARS-CoV-2 virions. Once attached to the spike proteins, these antibodies physically block the SARS-CoV-2 virus from attaching to our cells, thereby blocking any infection.

Hence, it is extremely unlikely that the blood of people who were vaccinated against COVID-19 would contain free-floating spike proteins. Even if they happen to be infected with COVID-19 at the time they made their blood donations, their circulating antibodies would be attaching themselves to the virus particles.

Fact #5 : Some Unvaccinated People Would Have Antibodies In Blood Too!

Some unvaccinated people who had a prior COVID-19 infection would have similar antibodies against the COVID-19 virus spike protein as well.

With most of the American population either vaccinated, or having survived a prior COVID-19 infection, the vast majority of blood donations would likely contain such anti-spike protein antibodies.

Therefore, it is highly unlikely that any blood donation, whether from a vaccinated person or otherwise, will contain COVID-19 spike proteins in significant amounts, if at all.

Why Red Cross Don’t Separate COVID Vaccinated Blood!

Some people are now making a fuss about the Red Cross not separating COVID-19 vaccinated blood, from unvaccinated blood.

Find out why the Red Cross is not separating donated blood based on the donor’s COVID-19 vaccination status!

 

Red Cross Does Not Separate COVID Vaccinated Blood!

People are sharing an audio clip of a Red Cross official telling an “undercover journalist” that they do not separate donated blood based on the donor’s COVID-19 vaccination status.

Cue the (feigned?) shock, horror and outrage on social media…

Steven Crowder : BREAKING: @RedCross official tells undercover journalist they DO NOT SEPARATE donated blood based on COVID-19 vaccination status; ADMITS unvaccinated recipients can UNWITTINGLY RECEIVE blood from vaccinated donors

THIS. IS. INSANE.

Recommended : Is Red Cross Rejecting COVID Vaccinated Blood?!

 

Why Red Cross Don’t Separate COVID Vaccinated Blood!

This is yet another example of fake news circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : This Is Old News

Let me start by pointing out that the fact that the Red Cross does not separate donated blood based on the donor’s COVID-19 vaccination status is not “breaking news”. It’s actually old news.

The Red Cross has stated that it does not label or separate blood products according to the donor’s COVID-19 vaccination status since September 2022, if not earlier.

14 September 2022 : We don’t label blood products as containing vaccinated or unvaccinated blood as the COVID-19 vaccine does not enter the bloodstream & poses no safety risks to the recipient. If you have safety concerns about potential blood transfusions, please speak with your medical care team

4 January 2023 : Blood products aren’t labeled with the donor’s vaccination status & there’s no scientific evidence that the vaccine enters the bloodstream.

You don’t need to be an “undercover journalist”, or even attempt to “trick” any Red Cross official into revealing what has already been openly stated for more than 1.5 years now.

Just because someone is ignorant about old news does not make this breaking news. What next will these Johnnys-come-lately reveal next? That vaccines must evolve to adapt to new COVID-19 variants???

Recommended : Did WEF Pass Law To Criminalise Criticism Of mRNA?!

Fact #2 : 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.

The safety of blood donors and the recipients who receive donated blood is our top priority. The Red Cross, like all blood collectors in the U.S., follows FDA regulations and protocols. This includes guidance related to those who receive vaccinations such as the COVID-19 vaccine.

Individuals can donate blood after getting an FDA approved COVID-19 vaccine as long as they are feeling well and symptom free at the time of donation. Those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine are asked to provide the name of the manufacturer to ensure it is an FDA approved vaccine. If the donor can not remember the name of the manufacturer, they are asked to wait two weeks from their vaccination to give blood.

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.

Let me just repeat this – blood products from COVID-vaccinated donors are safe for transfusion. Hence, there is no need to separate them based on the donor’s COVID-vaccination status, just like how blood products are not separated based on whether their donors received the measles, mumps, or influenza vaccines.

Fact #3 : Red Cross Is Not Obligated To Cater To Your Preferences

Donated blood products are meant to save lives. Organisations that receive and process blood products have to comply with regulations, and best practices. These are not trivial products that for-profit companies can cater to the whims and fancies of the consumer.

Hence, Red Cross and other similar blood organisations are not obligated to cater to anyone’s preferences of “unvaccinated” blood. If you wish to receive only “unvaccinated blood”, then you will have to donate and store your own blood, or have an unvaccinated friend or relative donate their blood for you to use.

Go ahead, and knock yourself out. Just don’t insist that organisations like the American Red Cross must cater to your whims and fancies.

Fact #4 : Blood Of Vaccinated People Is Safe For Transfusions

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.

All blood collection organizations in the U.S. are required to follow Food and Drug Administration guidelines and regulations to collect, process and distribute blood products for patients in need.

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.

Red Cross begins deferring COVID-vaccinated blood donors?!

Did the American Red Cross just begin to defer blood donors who had the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Red Cross Begins Deferring COVID-Vaccinated Blood Donors!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that the WHO Director-General just order governments to eliminate independent media, before the arrival of Disease X!

American Red Cross Begins Deferring Blood Donors Who Had Covid Vaccine

Recommended : Is Red Cross Rejecting COVID Vaccinated Blood?!

 

Truth : Red Cross Did Not Begin Deferring COVID-Vaccinated Blood Donors!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Red Cross Deferment Isn’t New

Let me start by pointing out that this deferment by the American Red Cross isn’t new. It actually dates back to at least 28 July 2021 (archive), which is more than 2.5 years ago!

Q: Are individuals who received a COVID-19 vaccine eligible to give blood, platelets and plasma?

A: Yes, you can donate blood after getting a COVID-19 vaccine, as long as you are symptom-free and feeling well at the time of the donation. Please come prepared to share the manufacturer name of the vaccine you received. If you do not know the name of the vaccine manufacturer, we request you wait two weeks to donate after vaccination, out of precaution.

The fact that some people are only realising this now isn’t shocking. What’s shocking is that some people would actually claim that the Red Cross is only “now” asking blood donors if they ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #2 : Red Cross Has No Problem With mRNA Vaccines

The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested that the American Red Cross if asking blood donors if “they ever received the Covid mRNA vaccine“. That’s not true.

The American Red Cross only asks that if you received the COVID-19 vaccine to share “the manufacturer name” to determine if you need to “wait two weeks… after vaccination” to donate your blood.

In fact, the American Red Cross specifically pointed out that donors who received mRNA-based vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna do not need to wait to donate their blood.

There is no deferral time for eligible blood donors who are vaccinated with an inactivated or RNA based COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by AstraZeneca, Janssen/J&J, Moderna, Novavax, or Pfizer.

To be clear – the American Red Cross has never said that mRNA vaccines were dangerous, and donors who received it would need to defer giving blood.

Recommended : Is Bill Gates Planning To Kill Billions Using Turbo AIDS?!

Fact #3 : Red Cross Only Wants To Defer Live Attenuated Vaccine

The truth is Red Cross is only asking blood donors who received a “live attenuated COVID-19 vaccine” to wait two weeks before giving blood.

But guess what – no live attenuated COVID-19 vaccine has ever been approved anywhere in the world, as of 21 February 2024!

It appears that the Red Cross initiated this decision as far back as July 2021, out of an abundance of caution – because some donors may be a participant in a clinical trial involving a live attenuated COVID-19 vaccine, and kept it as a forward-looking requirement, when such COVID-19 vaccine is ever approved.

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.

Even that deferral isn’t set in stone, as it appears that the Red Cross will still accept blood donations from donors who are “symptom free and feeling well at the time of donation”:

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.

Recommended : Did Autopsies Show COVID-19 Vaccines Caused Deaths?!

Fact #5 : Red Cross Is Helping To Vaccinated People

Interestingly, the American Red Cross points out that while they are not a healthcare provider that administers COVID-19 vaccinations in the United States, its teams are helping to vaccinated US service members overseas!

The Red Cross, as an organization, is not a healthcare provider and is not administering COVID-19 vaccinations in the U.S. However, Red Cross volunteers who are medical professionals may work with local authorities to help give vaccinations if their state licenses permit them to do so. In addition, Red Cross teams are currently helping to vaccinate U.S. service members on bases around the world.

Yet again, it shows that the Red Cross does not have an issue with COVID-19 vaccinations. So why would anyone suggest otherwise???

Fact #6 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Q: Are individuals who received a COVID-19 vaccine eligible to give blood, platelets and plasma?

A: Yes, you can donate blood after getting a COVID-19 vaccine, as long as you are symptom-free and feeling well at the time of the donation. Please come prepared to share the manufacturer name of the vaccine you received. If you do not know the name of the vaccine manufacturer, we request you wait two weeks to donate after vaccination, out of precaution.

Fact #3 : Red Cross Only Defers Some Blood Donations

The truth is Red Cross is only asking blood donors who received a “live attenuated COVID-19 vaccine” to wait two weeks before giving blood.

But guess what – no live attenuated COVID-19 vaccine has ever been approved anywhere in the world, as of 21 February 2024!

It appears that the Red Cross initiated this decision as far back as July 2021, out of an abundance of caution – because some donors may be a participant in a clinical trial involving a live attenuated COVID-19 vaccine, and kept it as a forward-looking requirement, when such COVID-19 vaccine is ever approved.

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.

Even that deferral isn’t set in stone, as it appears that the Red Cross will still accept blood donations from donors who are “symptom free and feeling well at the time of donation”:

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.

Fact #4 : There’s No Deferral For Inactivated / RNA / mRNA Vaccines

In any case, all of the approved COVID-19 vaccines in the United States, and the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines, do not require any deferral, because they are based on the inactivated or RNA and mRNA vaccine technologies:

There is no deferral time for eligible blood donors who are vaccinated with an inactivated or RNA based COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by AstraZeneca, Janssen/J&J, Moderna, Novavax, or Pfizer.

So why would anyone throw a (pretend?) hissy fit about something that has zero effect on blood donors in the United States?

Fact #6 : Red Cross Is Helping To Vaccinated People

Interestingly, the American Red Cross points out that while they are not a healthcare provider that administers COVID-19 vaccinations in the United States, its teams are helping to vaccinated US service members overseas!

The Red Cross, as an organization, is not a healthcare provider and is not administering COVID-19 vaccinations in the U.S. However, Red Cross volunteers who are medical professionals may work with local authorities to help give vaccinations if their state licenses permit them to do so. In addition, Red Cross teams are currently helping to vaccinate U.S. service members on bases around the world.

Yet again, it shows that the Red Cross does not have an issue with COVID-19 vaccinations. So why would anyone suggest otherwise???
