Anti-vaxxers are refusing blood transfusions from vaccinated donors because they believe they’re ‘tainted,’ report says

Some patients who are skeptical of the coronavirus jab are refusing life-saving blood transfusions from vaccinated donors, according to a report by The Daily Beast. 

The American Red Cross said that their officials have had to field questions in recent weeks about whether vaccinated blood could be “tainted” with components from the COVID-19 injections, according to spokesperson Emily Osment.

Doctors have had to explain that it is safe to receive a blood donation from a vaccinated person.

“While the antibodies that are produced by the stimulated immune system in response to vaccination are found throughout the bloodstream, the actual vaccine components are not,” Jessa Merrill, the Red Cross director of biomedical communications, told The Daily Beast.
