Hepatitis – I had hepatitis. Can I donate?

It depends on the type of hepatitis you had.

Hepatitis A and B

Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver caused by infection (like the hepatitis A or B viruses) or an unknown cause. You need to wait at least 12 months after you’ve made a full recovery before you donate blood. When you come in, make sure you notify the interviewer so they can request some extra tests on your donation to be safe.

Hepatitis C

If you currently have or have ever had hepatitis C, you are not eligible to donate even if you completed successful treatment.
