Can I give blood if I feel like I have the flu?

No, you cannot give blood if you feel like you have the flu. The risk of complaints such as dizziness or even fainting after donation is increased in this case. For a weak patient who receives the blood, a cold virus can represent a serious threat. Once you feel better again, we ask that you wait for two weeks to give blood, to make sure you are no longer contagious.

Take the donor test on our website before every blood donation. This will prevent you from visiting the blood band for nothing.
