Infectious diseases

Many diseases are not infectious and so are not normally a risk however, some infectious diseases can be passed on through donated material, even before a potential donor develops any symptoms of the infection.

This may lead to serious infection in the person receiving a donation.

Infectious diseases

  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Chickenpox
  • Shingles
  • German measles

You can donate provided that you have been fully recovered for two weeks or more.

    If you have been in contact with someone with an infectious disease and have never had the disease you must wait 4 weeks before donating.


If you have had or been exposed to monkeypox please contact us to check on your eligibility to donate before you make an appointment.
