Antibiotics - I am taking antibiotics. Can I donate?

Maybe. It depends on why you’re taking the antibiotics.

  • Recent infection – The infection must have resolved at least one week ago and you need to have completed the full course of antibiotics five days before you donate.
  • Preventative antibiotics for mild acne or rosacea (minocycline, doxycycline or erythromycin) – You are eligible to donate.

Other preventative antibiotics used when you don’t have a current infection are OK in some cases. Call us on 13 14 95 to confirm if you are able to donate.
