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
The WayBack Machine at archive.org contains a snapshot from June 12, 2021 of the official Red Cross manual entitled, “COVID-19 Vaccine Blood Donation Guide for Donors”
Here is what the manual says:
“If you receive any type of COVID vaccine, you are not eligible to donate convalescent plasma.”
“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.”
