Thank you very much for registering as a blood donor! First, please take the medical check-up to see whether it will be safe for you and for the patients to donate blood.
In Nederland kan iemand zich aanmelden als donor tussen zijn of haar achttiende en vijfenzestigste verjaardag. Iemand van deze leeftijd kan de donatie van een halve liter bloed meestal probleemloos verdragen.
Bloed geven is mogelijk tot en met 79 jaar. Bij iemand die ouder is dan 79 jaar wordt de kans op complicaties groter. De gezondheid van de donor kan dus in het geding zijn, en we willen niet dat een donor risico loopt.
Ben je nog geen 18 jaar? Dan mag je helaas nog geen bloed geven. Wel vinden we het geweldig dat je nu al geïnteresseerd bent in het donorschap. We hopen dan ook dat je je weer meldt als je 18 wordt.
In the Netherlands, someone between 18 and 65 years of age can register as a donor. A person of this age can normally donate half a liter of blood hassle-free. The chance of complications increases with people older than 79 years of age. In other words, the health of donors could be at stake, and we do not wish a donor to be at risk. Aren’t you 18 years old yet? Then, unfortunately you cannot register as a donor yet. However, we appreciate your interest in giving blood. Therefore, we hope that you will sign up again once you turn 18.
We are allowed to collect only 16% of blood from the total blood volume. Otherwise, the health of the donor may be put at risk. Is this only temporary and do you expect to gain some weight, then please sign up once you have gained weight again. If you’re just not that heavy and still want to help us, please tell people you know about donating blood. Thank you for your interest in donating blood!
Because you have received a blood transfusion, out of precaution, you cannot register as a donor. This is in order to prevent an infection chain with the variant of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. There is no test available with which this disease can be detected in humans. Thank you for your interest in donating blood!
A variant of the Creutzfeldt-Jakob (vCJD) disease was discovered in people in 1996. This brain disease is probably caused by eating contaminated beef from cows with BSE (the ‘mad cow disease’). It has also been demonstrated that the vCJD variant can be transmitted via a blood transfusion. There is no test available to detect vCJD in humans. That’s why people who could transfer the disease aren’t allowed to become a donor, even if the chance of transferring the disease is really small. Thank you for interest in becoming a donor!
A variant of the Creutzfeldt-Jakob (vCJD) disease was discovered in people in 1996. This brain disease is probably caused by eating contaminated beef from cows with BSE (the ‘mad cow disease’). Most cases of vCJD so far have occurred in the United Kingdom. It has also been demonstrated that the vCJD variant can be transmitted via a blood transfusion. For this reason, people who spent six months or longer in the United Kingdom between 1st January 1980 and 31st December 1996 are not allowed to register as a blood donor. Thank you very much for your interest in becoming a donor!
You cannot register as a donor if you ever injected drugs. Even if it was only once or a long time ago. Because of a higher risk of blood-borne infections you cannot give blood. If you have snorted cocaine, you are allowed to give blood four months after the last time you used cocaine. If you use cocaine once every four months or more often, you are not allowed to become a donor.
If you don’t use any injections with insulin for the diabetes, but only tablets (and your medicine is set correctly) in the future, you can still become a blood donor later.
