Previous regulation by the Food and Drug Administration prevented students from participating in blood drives because the American Association of Blood Banks requires a 12-month deferral for donors who have received an unlicensed vaccine or a vaccine not approved by the FDA. However, the Red Cross successfully filed a Transmittal Authority document preventing the deferral and allowing students who got the meningitis vaccine to donate blood. The document was filed just in time for a blood drive that took place on campus Monday and Tuesday in Whig Hall.
It should be know, if you do not know, "most" other blood banks follow similar guidelines - but……..I know personally since my DH donates often, he has never been asked about his vaccines (lack their of) but does get about 70 other questions, he is asked if he "recently" (that is a loose term) has been out side the country. This is our local requirements, note, they only care really about smallpox. If you have donated within the prior months they skim over your paper work, unlike a person who never donated before…….something "some" might want to think about!
