Safe Blood Donation was formed to assist people who do not wish to receive blood transfusions from donors who have received Covid-19 mRNA or viral-vector vaccines or other injections of foreign genetic material. Currently, we are not aware of any blood banks that identify or separate the blood of vaccinated and unvaccinated donors. Therefore, we have established a worldwide registry that our members can utilize to locate unvaccinated donors. This is up and running with thousands of members worldwide, and more and more people from around the globe sign up to become members of Safe Blood Donation every single day.

Safe Blood Donation also seeks to build a comprehensive list of medical practitioners who guarantee patients the right to choose their own blood donors. Safe Blood Donation is working tirelessly to build this registry, but it is still in the very early stages of development.

And finally, in the long term, Safe Blood Donation seeks to create a network of unvaccinated blood banks. Currently, our members can receive directed blood donation only on a non-emergency basis. But as stores of safe blood become more common worldwide, it will become more feasible to make it available for emergency use. We are determined to make this goal a reality, but it is still a long way off. To help us reach this goal as soon as possible, we are currently seeking volunteers to help with the administration of this HUGE effort.  PLEASE CONTACT US if you want to help out!

Currently, the only way to become a member is via the website:
https://safeblood.com/memberships/

This page will guide you through the registration process. Please fill in all required information, including your vaccination status. To ensure that you are a real human being, Safe Blood Donation requires that you complete a “captcha” in order to become a member. 

We recommend filling out the membership application on a computer as attempting to do so on a cell phone can be difficult. (If you don’t have access to a computer, call or send us an email and we can help you to register.)

IMPORTANT: PLEASE FILL IN ALL REQUIRED INFORMATION ON THE REGISTRATION PAGE. Your membership registration is not complete until you do so. If you currently don’t know your blood type, no problem – just leave the field blank for now and you can add it later. However, your membership will not be active until you fill in your blood type. Obviously, we cannot refer you to other members as a blood donor, or refer blood donors to you, if your blood type is unknown. (Also see Question #8, “How can I find out my blood type?”)

Although we don’t require your physical address for privacy reasons, you are of course welcome to provide it. However, we do need your correct zip code at the time of registration. This is vital in order to find potential blood donors and/or recipients who are as close as possible to your location.

Please be assured that your personal information is safe with us. Safe Blood Donation’s publicly searchable map of potential blood donors is completely anonymous. This map of potential donors can be found here:

https://safeblood.com/blood-matching/

It is free to sign up with Safe Blood as a “donor only” member. As a “donor only” member, you make yourself available as a potential donor if someone in your area requests a donor of your blood type. However, with a free “donor only” membership, you cannot make a blood donor request yourself. In order to request a donor, you must sign up as a full member.

To become a full member, Safe Blood asks that you pay a modest membership fee to help cover our administrative costs, which grow as our membership grows. The fee to become a full member is $10 per month for an individual adult. Minor children (under the age of 18) may be added to an adult’s membership free of charge. You may also add adults to your account for an additional fee of $10 per month each.

You can also become a Founding Member of Safe Blood for a one-time fee of $1,000.00 USD.  By becoming a Founding Member, your membership will never expire and you will have unlimited access to our blood donor registry. In addition, your contribution will further assist Safe Blood donation to reach our long-term goals.

However, we recognize that not everyone can afford these membership costs. Therefore, Safe Blood has established a beneficence fund to assist people who cannot afford the membership fee but who wish to join us as receiving members. So if the membership fee is simply beyond your means, please send us an email at [email protected] to apply to the beneficence fund.

However you participate, we thank all Safe Blood Donation members and donors for their contribution. “Action is reaction,” so Safe Blood Donation can only be successful with your active involvement. We appreciate everyone who joins us as a pioneer in this monumental endeavor.

Please note that the donor referral process described herein applies only in the USA at present. However, this process will serve as the template in other countries once Safe Blood Donation is up and running everywhere.

Whether you have a pre-scheduled surgery coming up and are looking for blood donors in advance, or you simply want to be prepared in advance in case you ever need blood, the first step is to sign up to become a member (described above in question #2). When you fill out the online member registration form, you will be asked to provide your postal code so that we may find donors as close to you as possible. You will also be given the option to create and customize your advance medical directives which clearly state your personal wishes regarding blood transfusion. Then, log in as a member and visit the search page (https://safeblood.com/map-search/) where you can search by blood type and location. The map will return the number of matching potential donors found in your area.

Next, click the “Request a Donor” button, which will bring up the email donor request form. You will be asked to fill out various details on the form, including the urgency of your request and whether your hospital has already agreed to allow you to have a directed blood donation. If you would like to find a donor as close to your home address as possible, and are comfortable providing that information, please include it with your donor request submission. Otherwise, we will search for close donors based on your zip code on file.  If you are looking for donors in a location other than your home postal code, such as a specific hospital or blood collection facility, you can tell us on the form.

The email contact form will be processed immediately upon submission. Our system geographically plots potential donor matches and selects those closest to you. Safe Blood Donation usually responds via email within 24 hours with contact information for potential donors near you. We protect the identity of our donors, so these donors will have already agreed to allow you to contact them.

Generally, directed donation requires some testing of the blood before it can be used. This means that there is a time delay of at least several days between when directed donor blood is collected and when it can be used. The turnaround time for directed donor blood varies widely and can range anywhere from three days to three weeks. (Also see Question #11, “How do I arrange a ‘directed donation’ of blood?”)

Our system is extremely efficient in finding potential donors who are as close as possible to your location. For this reason, it is extremely important that you provide your correct postal code when entering your data, because without this information the system simply cannot find you. We will only use this information to match you with potential donors or recipients, and we promise not to share your private data with anyone.

It is also recommended, especially in case of emergency, that you also customize and save your advance medical directives in your online member profile. The QR code on your membership card will lead health care providers directly to your customized advance medical directives.

REGARDING TRANSFUSIONS: At Safe Blood Donation, we believe that the best transfusion is a prevented transfusion. In many cases, transfusions of foreign blood can be rendered unnecessary by autotransfusion (self-donation using a process which recovers blood lost during surgery and re-infuses it into the patient). For this reason, we recommend that your living will specify that transfusion of donated blood should be undertaken only AFTER autotransfusion has been ruled out. (Also see question #15, “How can I reduce my chances of requiring a transfusion?”)

You must also find out if your hospital permits directed blood donation. The best way to find out is simply to call and ask. Usually someone in either the hospital blood bank or transfusion services can give you a straight answer.

Be aware that some medical facilities will NOT allow you to have a directed blood donation as a matter of “policy.” However, on the flip side, as information on the possible adverse effects of Covid-19 mRNA and viral vector injections becomes more and more widely available to the public, we now receive many inquiries from potential medical partners. We expect this to continue and to drastically accelerate, which is why we are opening up Safe Blood membership to medical partners.

Absolutely! As a matter of fact, Safe Blood recommends that you do so. Requesting a match without imminent need on a “non-urgent” basis gives you the opportunity to get in touch with donors near you and plan ahead should you ever actually need a blood transfusion.

Think of it as an emergency preparedness plan. By making a non-urgent donor request in advance, if you ever actually need blood you’ll be able to get in touch with your donors very quickly.

It is also vital to find out in advance which medical facilities in your area will or will not assist you with a directed blood donation. See question 11, “How do I arrange for a ‘directed donation’ of blood?”

If you would like to serve as a Safe Blood donor, please sign up as a donating member. You can sign up as a donating member at: https://safeblood.com/memberships/

You will then be added to our donor registry. You can then be referred as a donor if and when another member in your area requests a donor of your blood type.

At this time, Safe Blood does not operate its own blood banks. Therefore, all member-to-member directed blood donations are arranged through the existing system of hospitals and blood collection facilities. (Also see Question #11: “How do I arrange for a ‘directed donation’ of blood?”)

No, you don’t! Safe Blood Donation offers a free “donor only” membership category for unvaccinated people who simply want to serve their community. (See question 2: “How can I become a Safe Blood Donation member?”)

However, we find that most of our members also want to join us as full paying members so that they can also request blood should they need it. Moreover, as a paying member, you additionally help us in the effort to reach our long-term goals, such as establishing unvaccinated blood banks.

No.  Although the “full membership” allows you to both “give and receive blood,” you are under no obligation to become a donor in order to receive blood. If you sign up for a “full membership” and do not wish to serve as a blood donor, log in and change your donor status in your member profile to “receive only.”

Your doctor or hospital can assist you to determine your blood type if you don’t know it. But they can be reluctant to run a blood type test unless you have an upcoming medical procedure already scheduled.

However, you can also easily type your own blood using an inexpensive home blood typing test, such as this one:

Yes. Safe Blood Donation welcomes everyone, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated, to join as a member to receive blood. However, only unvaccinated members can serve as blood donors.

At Safe Blood Donation, we refuse to go along with the prevailing trend of medical fascism. The primary goal of Safe Blood Donation is to ensure that everyone, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated, can have access to unvaccinated blood if they want it. We love and embrace all of our fellow human beings, and we will never exclude anyone based on vaccination status.

Yes!  Safe Blood members can be found all over the world. Safe Blood is in the process of building world-wide functionality to be able to match blood donors and recipients anywhere, and we are happy to have you as a member wherever you live. Registered members can search for potential donors by region, and our growing world-wide registry also helps ensure that you can always find a donor, no matter where you live or travel.

The first step is to find out if your hospital will allow you to do so.  Some hospitals will and some hospitals won’t. Moreover, the time delay for directed donor blood varies widely from facility to facility. So the first step is to ask your hospital and find out for certain whether they will or will not assist you. You should also find out what facility they contract with to collect blood; what is their usual turnaround time for a directed blood donation; and if there is an additional charge for directed blood donation.

If your hospital allows directed blood donation, your doctor must write a blood collection order which contains the names of the patient and all blood donors. Once the blood collection order is sent to the lab, donors may then come in to donate blood to the designated recipient.  After that, the hospital and blood collection facility will coordinate transporting and storing the blood and getting it to you when needed. Whole blood usually must be used within 4-6 weeks.

Safe Blood recommends that you call your hospital and ask about their policy regarding directed blood donations, even if you are currently healthy and have no foreseeable need for blood in the near future. The worst time to find out that your hospital will not assist you with a directed blood donation is when you are actually in need of a blood transfusion.  

No. Safe Blood Donation does not pay for blood donation and discourages our members from doing do. Although we are currently unable to facilitate payment for blood donation, we believe there is tremendous benefit to having access to unvaccinated blood if and when you need it. We are not “blood dealers” but “members taking care of members,” a community which is aware of the potential threats to our health and wants to look out for each other.

It is currently impossible with one hundred percent certainty to differentiate vaccinated from unvaccinated blood. The differences are clearly visible under dark field microscopy, which is the current method of choice. But this technique is not recognized by orthodox medicine at this point in time.

When it comes to the direct mediation of blood donors and recipients, Safe Blood Donation must assume that every member who states “unvaccinated” in his or her profile is indeed unvaccinated. This requires trust from member to member.
You can see a video showing the differences between vaccinated and unvaccinated blood under dark field microscopy here:

If you have concerns about the vaccination status of your blood donor, you can arrange for a dark field microscopy test on your own. However, this is challenging to do with blood packs, and as stated above this test is not currently recognized by orthodox medicine. We are hopeful that soon there will be a faster, more convenient, and more widely accepted test.

The simple answer is “We don’t know.” New studies show that unvaccinated people can sometimes exhibit blood alteration similar to vaccinated people. It is assumed that this is caused by spike protein “shedding,” but at Safe Blood Donation we work not with assumptions but with facts. We are following this subject very closely, but for now we simply don’t know if the blood alterations which are sometimes visible in unvaccinated persons are caused by so-called “shedding” or by something else. As soon as more definitive information becomes available, we can react accordingly. For the time being, if this is of concern to you, you might want to arrange for a dark-field microscopy test as described above in question #13.

No blood is more compatible than your own and is therefore always the best option in cases where your own blood can be used in surgery. In addition to autologous blood donation, where you donate your own blood before a planned surgery, there are other options.

You might be able to avoid transfusion altogether by using autotransfusion, commonly referred to as “cell salvage,” or CS for short.

Autotransfusion is a medical process in which a person’s own blood is collected during surgery, filtered, and then re-infused back into the body.  This procedure, which is performed by a trained member of the surgical team, is mainly used during operations when the chance of significant blood loss is high (>500 mL) and the chances of contamination within the surgical field are low. These include cardiac, major (open) vascular, complex urology, obstetric and orthopedic surgeries (including spine).

For a more detailed description of intraoperative cell salvage, see here: https://www.bjaed.org/article/S2058-5349%2820%2930157-8/fulltext

Autotransfusion is not an option in every circumstance, such as in instances of major surgical site infection or when certain contaminants are present. Such contaminants include: antimicrobial agents that cannot be adequately filtered out of the collected blood; antibiotics not approved for IV use; topical clotting agents; unset bone cement; and excessive amniotic fluid and leukocytes present in cancer surgeries.

Because a person’s own blood contains the necessary antigens and antibodies required for a successful transfusion, autotransfusion ensures perfectly matched blood and prevents possible allergic reactions caused by improperly matched donated blood. Moreover, autotransfusion eliminates the concern that you are receiving blood from a vaccinated donor.

Despite the benefits, many doctors and surgeons do not include cell salvage as part of their routine procedural care.  Therefore, it is critical to advocate for yourself or your family member. More often than not, CS will not be offered as an option unless you specifically request it. Find out if your hospital has trained cell salvage staff and equipment on site. If they do, discuss the risks and benefits of CS with your doctor.

Protocols to mitigate blood loss are also worth discussing with your surgeon and anesthesiologist.  These include but are not limited to: supplements to increase hemoglobin levels prior to surgery; avoiding hemodilution in the preoperative setting; volume expanders, antifibrinolytic drugs (specifically tranexamic acid); perioperative use of vasoconstrictors; and reversal of anti-coagulants.  You may specify that these procedures be used before transfusion in your medical advance directives which you can fill out and print and/or link to your medical ID on your phone from our site.

Yes, EVERYONE who wishes to can and should become a member of Safe Blood Donation. Although everyone may not be able to donate blood, everyone may find themselves in a situation where they may need to receive blood.

As to blood donor age, the legal requirements vary significantly from place to place. Often, however, age restrictions are not true legal requirements but simply arbitrary protocols. Age is NOT a disease, and the health of any person depends on many factors in addition to chronological age.

With this in mind, take a look at the following link (automatically translated from the German), “Blood donations in old age – what needs to be considered?”:

https://www-aktive–rentner-de.translate.goog/blutspenden-im-alter-was-gibt-es-zu-beachten.html?_x_tr_sl=auto&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en

At Safe Blood Donation, we believe that age alone is not sufficient to bar blood donation. When you join as a member, whatever your age, we will ask for your health history. At that time you will be able to fill in any medical conditions past or present which might exclude you from blood donation. Talk to your doctor if you are not sure whether you are fit to serve as a blood donor.

Be aware, however, that an individual blood collection organization may nevertheless bar you from blood donation because of your age, or because of certain medications that you may be taking.

At this time, Safe Blood Donation is not able to handle emergency requests.  If you need blood urgently, dial 911 or go to your local emergency room.  Your local hospitals are your best resource for access to blood on an emergency basis.  Although we are not aware of a reliable source for unvaccinated blood on an emergency basis, it may be possible for your hospital to provide you with unvaccinated blood.  Please ask them.  If you know of a hospital that designates blood donations by vaccination status, please let us know. We would love for them to consider Safe Blood medical membership so that Safe Blood members may connect with them as both potential donors and recipients.  Medical providers interested in becoming Safe Blood partners may contact us at this email: [email protected].

We are working towards developing a world-wide registry which will make it possible to obtain unvaccinated blood on short notice, but this is not yet a reality in most areas.  At this stage, we only connect donors and recipients in non-emergency situations. The best way to connect with potential donors on a non-emergency basis is to sign up for membership on our site.

It is very important, especially in case of emergency, that you have completely filled out and saved your advance medical directives in your online member profile. The QR code on your membership card will lead health care providers directly to your customized advance directives, which contain your legally binding living will and healthcare power of attorney. So please make sure your membership data is accurate, and carry your membership card with you at all times.

Note that all blood transfusions involve some degree of risk. In many cases, however, transfusions of foreign blood can be rendered unnecessary by autotransfusion (self-donation using a process which recovers blood lost during surgery and re-infuses it into the patient). Your medical advance directives can be customized to specify that transfusion of donated blood be undertaken only AFTER autotransfusion has been attempted. By electing for autotransfusion, you might be able to avoid needing a blood transfusion using blood donated by anybody else. (See question #15.)

And last but not least, you can do something to prevent others from finding themselves in the same predicament by becoming a member and by encouraging others to do so, too. Join us and stand up against medical tyranny!

Not yet, but we’ll keep working on it.  Please be patient.  And medical facilities that accept directed donation may be able to treat and process the blood that is donated by Safe Blood members.  Ask them. 

Safe Blood Donation was founded and is currently headed by retired Swiss naturopath Georg Della Pietra, whose expertise is in treating viral and bacterial infection as well as vaccine damage. Behind Georg is an ever-growing support team of volunteers from around the globe and from all walks of life, all of whom share Georg’s vision of making unvaccinated blood available to all who want it.

Safe Blood Donation is funded entirely by membership fees and private contributions. If you can help out with either a financial contribution or by volunteering some of your time, please do so!
