A person who has suffered a coronavirus disease can donate blood 28 days after full recovery. 

This was reported by experts of the Ministry of Health.

"Such restrictions are primarily related to the state of health of the donor himself, who must recover from the illness. After all, this virus is not transmitted through blood," the doctors note.

Among the main ways of its transmission are contact, when the virus enters the mucous membranes of the nose, eyes through hands or other objects contaminated (contaminated) with secretions from the respiratory tract of a sick or infected person, and droplet, when the virus is transmitted from person to person during coughing or sneeze.

Vaccination against coronavirus is also not a contraindication to donating blood, since so-called live vaccines, which contain a weakened live microorganism, are not used for vaccination against COVID-19.

If a person feels healthy the day after vaccination and this is confirmed by a doctor's examination before donation, you can donate blood.  

As for other vaccinations, for example, for the prevention of tuberculosis (BCG), measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), which are carried out with live vaccines, blood can be donated after four weeks.

We will remind, 

in Ukraine it was allowed to vaccinate children aged 5-11 against COVID-19.
