Vaccination against COVID-19 and blood donation: what do you need to know

Can I still donate blood if I have been vaccinated against COVID-19?

Yes!

Autorised vaccines by Health Canada do not involve a blood donation prohibition period. Someone who has been vaccinated and is feeling well may donate without delay.

Héma-Québec pursues its mission through the mobilization of donors and volunteers

One thousand blood donations are required every day to ensure an optimal reserve level. This is true both in normal circumstances and during a pandemic. Héma-Québec has been continually reaching this objective since the start of the pandemic by mobilizing donors, volunteers and employees.
