At the blood drive, donors that received a COVID-19 vaccine will need to provide the manufacturer name when they come to donate. Upon vaccination, individuals should receive a card or printout indicating what COVID-19 vaccine was received and the Red Cross encourages donors to bring that card to their next donation.
Additional details about eligibility guidelines for COVID-19 vaccine and blood donor eligibility:
- 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.
- 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.
- Regardless of the type of vaccine an individual receives, all donors must be symptom free and feeling well at the time of donation. If an individual is experiencing any symptoms from the COVID-19 vaccine, the Red Cross asks that they postpone their donation until they are feeling better.
For additional donor eligibility questions, direct donors to 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
