Tetanus

Do you want to help us combat tetanus? Get vaccinated against tetanus and become a plasma donor.

Only a small proportion (about 5%) of the Dutch population has enough antibodies against tetanus to qualify for anti-tetanus plasma donation. That is why the blood bank is looking for donors who are willing to be vaccinated against tetanus, so that the antibody levels in their blood increase.

What can your plasma do?

The antibodies in your plasma can be administered to people with an injury who are at risk of contamination with the tetanus bacteria.
