With more than 6.5 million people vaccinated against COVID-19 in the country, and almost 3 million who have already received the second dose of both the Pfizer and Coronavac (Sinovac) vaccines, it is important to reiterate that when in doubt whether these inoculated people can donate blood immediately, the Valparaíso Blood Center noted that “people who received a non-replicating, inactivated or RNA-based vaccine can donate without having a waiting period.”

In this sense, the Transfusion Medicine Unit (UMT) of the San Fernando Hospital, informs: “the user community that has received either of the two vaccines, can come to donate blood without waiting the 14 days that they had originally given us. notified”.

It is worth mentioning that, to make a voluntary donation, people must schedule their time by calling 722335129 (UMT), writing an email to [email protected], by writing a whatsapp to +56934114901, or by sending an internal message to the social networks “Dona Sangre San Fernando” on both Facebook and Instagram. The Donation Center is located at Carelmapu 331.

As San Fernando is in Total Quarantine (Phase 1 of the “Step by Step” Plan), donors must request the Blood Donor Permit at the Virtual Police Station (, which will be requested at the time of making your donation.
