Is STILL wrong. You even quoted the title of the video and it says something totally different from your title.


The American Red Cross’ current policy is to only accept convalescent plasma donations from people who have recovered from COVID-19 and have not had the vaccine. Although, if plasma donated by people vaccinated against COVID-19 has a high-level of COVID-19 antibodies it may be used as convalescent plasma.

Actually the new guidance is they can donate the plasma if they meet the criteria and the red cross is changing it's policy to match. It just takes a bit of time to do so.

The criteria. It has to have antibodies. And that's the problem.

Play nice kids.

Do you people ever actually read what you are posting? Apparently not.

So they can accept it, just within criteria. Not as your thread title misleadingly says "People vaccinated can't donate convalescent plasma".

WASHINGTON, D.C. – March 17, 2020 – The American Red Cross now faces a severe blood shortage due to an unprecedented number of blood drive cancellations in response to the coronavirus outbreak. Healthy individuals are needed now to donate to help patients counting on lifesaving blood.


perhaps a global pandemic?

That has nothing at all to do with the premise of this thread.

If someone asks about a shortage of blood I would assume that it has something to do with the topic of the thread.

We are still meant to avoid off topic posts aren't we?

If I called them what I think of them I'd get slapped with a T&C violation and have to sit on the naughty step.

you aren't very good at this. The thread is about giving blood, Red Cross is where that happens. then you asked :



Why would there be a shortage of blood?


I answered. Why can't you just accept that this happened, you got your question answered, and move the # on?

You don't seem to understand ATS rules about staying on topic or civility .

The topic is vaccinated people donating convalescent plasma. That doesn't mean any random thought that crosses your mind about blood donation is relevant.

Now if you can answer what the topic has to do with a shortage of blood supply then please do so.

That's always the criteria. The Vaccine won't impact antibodies. Anyone who got the vaccine after getting covid and has antibodies can donate.

If you don't have antibodies you can't donate antibodies .. seems like that doesn't even need to be said.

This has no impact on blood donation.
