Blood transfusions: can beggars be choosers?

Blood transfusions: can beggars be choosers?

This is an interesting question!

A handful of patients had requested blood from unvaccinated donors. But more than 90% of current donors have either been infected with covid or vaccinated against it. Dr. Michael Busch explained.

People requiring transfusions may donate their own blood in advance (Autologous blood transfusion). They can also request donations from designated friends and family members. But according to Red Cross, there is no evidence that the latter’s blood is safer.

So, should a ‘beggar’ choose at a time like this?

  1. I don’t think people should be allowed to be so fussy especially when there is no scientific evidence that vaccinated blood is harmful.


  2. ❀ I AM Forbidden to Donate Blood EveryOne; because of My Malaria which may, Actually, Be of Benefit to Our AutoImmune System which would reduce Pharmaceutical Profits
