Hepatitis - I had hepatitis. Can I donate?

Printer-friendly version

Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver caused by infection (such as with the hepatitis A or B viruses) or an unknown cause, and you can't donate until at least 12 months after full recovery. After that, the next time you come into the donor centre, extra testing will be performed on your donation.
Please note, however, that if you have/had hepatitis C, you are permanently ineligible to donate.
