Blood donation when unknowingly exposed to Hep B
September 22, 2012 12:23 AM Subscribe
I just found out a close family member has had Hepatitis B for years. I last met them a month ago; my vaccinations are up to date. Does this mean I can't donate blood for another nine months of not-seeing this family member?

To complicate things, I have been a blood donor for two years. I never knew about the Hep B, and I suppose I should've asked. Does this mean I may have unknowingly infected someone or something? I'm a bit flustered, not least because I was looking forward to donating again this weekend till I found out. Thank you.
