PEOPLE CAN DONATE BLOOD 14 DAYS AFTER TAKING A COVID-19 VACCINE

PEOPLE CAN DONATE BLOOD 14 DAYS AFTER TAKING A COVID-19 VACCINE, according to an expert committee set up to review an earlier directive to donate blood only after 28 days. Blood Donation deferral criteria for the vaccine is from 7 to 14 day in most countries.But in India, the authorities had set the deferral period of 28 days after one dose of vaccine.This would have created a major crisis in blood banks as majority of voluntary donors are in the 18 to 44 age group. Now, the NTBC has revised the deferral period to 14 days.
