Many diseases are not infectious and so are not normally a risk however, some infectious diseases can be passed on through donated material, even before a potential donor develops any symptoms of the infection.
This may lead to serious infection in the person receiving a donation.
- German measles
You can donate provided that you have been fully recovered for two weeks or more.
- If you have been in contact with someone with an infectious disease and have never had the disease you must wait 4 weeks before donating.
