New Donor Screening Question Related to the COVID Vaccine

The Red Cross is following FDA guidance for donors who have received the COVID-19 vaccination.

  • All donors – vaccinated and unvaccinated – should continue wearing a well-fitted medical facemask during your appointment.
  • If you have received your vaccine, please specify the manufacturer of your vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna, or J&J) during your screening. Donors are encouraged but not required to bring a picture of their vaccine card to their appointment.
  • There is no deferral time for individuals who have received the COVID-19 vaccine; however, all donors must be symptom-free and feeling well at the time of donation. 
  • If you are experiencing any symptoms from the COVID-19 vaccine, the Red Cross recommends postponing your appointment until you are feeling better.
