I’m 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’re eligible to donate. 

Other preventative antibiotics used when you don’t have a current infection are okay in some cases. Contact us to double check if you can donate.
