Dear New Zealand Blood Service,

Would you please provide the details on blood donations for the following cases;

1) Do you accept blood donations from Covid-19 Vaccinated persons?

2) Is there a delay of "x" days from Covid-19 vaccination before you accept blood donations?

3) If someone has an adverse reaction to the Covid-19 vaccination, are blood donations accepted from them? Is there a different delay period for such cases?

Yours faithfully,
