No, the American Red Cross has not said that vaccinated people can not donate blood or plasma

According to a video circulated via WhatsApp, the American Red Cross has allegedly claimed that people who have been vaccinated against covid-19 cannot donate plasma to treat others infected with SARS-CoV-2, as the vaccine “destroys the patients’ natural antibodies”. This is DECEITFUL. The American Red Cross has stated that not all patients can be admitted at the time to donate plasma from a convalescent, but this depends more on the type of vaccine that has been administered than on whether or not the vaccine has been received. In any case, donation is not refused, but in certain cases it is requested to be delayed for two weeks for some types of vaccines.
