Red Cross: Vaccinated blood donors barred

Red Cross Vaccine Alert — You Gotta Hear This


September 1, 2021

Anyone who has received their Vaccine can not donate convalescent plasma to other Covid patients. The Vaccine wipes out natural Covid antibodies making the convalescent plasma ineffective for treatment. Once people are vaccinated, they cannot donate plasma. The vaccine causes spike antibodies, and for convalescent plasma, they need nucleocapsid antibodies. PHOENIX – While it’s promising to see people getting vaccinated for COVID-19, a new problem that blood banks face is less convalescent plasma donations. The reason why: after you get the vaccine, you cannot donate plasma. So what does that mean for people in the hospital with COVID-19 who need it? Vitalant blood bank said right now, one in every four patients hospitalized with COVID requires a convalescent plasma transfusion. RED CROSS WEBSITE Due to the decline in hospital demand and because the Red Cross and our industry partners have been able to build a sufficient supply of convalescent plasma to meet the foreseeable needs of COVID-19 patients the Red Cross stopped collecting convalescent plasma completely on June 14. Notice how the Red Cross does NOT deny that the vaccine wipes out natural antibodies in those who have had the vaccine, but instead they tell you the claim is not “accurate” because they have stopped accepting plasma since enough plasma has already been collected and they don’t need anymore. This is highly deceptive language which will deflect the truth from anyone not paying close attention to the parsing. The questions directly above this one in the Q and A tell you straight up that the plasma is different and …. WAIT FOR IT …. that only the plasma from the UNVACCINATED meets their requirements: “One of the Red Cross requirements for plasma from routine blood and platelet donations that test positive for high-levels of antibodies to be used as convalescent plasma is that it must be from a donor that has not received a COVID-19 vaccine. This is to ensure that antibodies collected from donors have sufficient antibodies directly related to their immune response to a COVID-19 infection and not just the vaccine, as antibodies from an infection and antibodies from a vaccine are not the same.”
