West Nile Virus (WNV) is a flavivirus, similar to Dengue, which causes a wide spectrum of infection and is spread by mosquitos.
This year there will be a change to the guideline in regards to West Nile Virus; donors will no longer be asked to wait 4 weeks from their return from a West Nile Virus area. If you have visited between 1st May and 30th November - You may attend a blood donor session as long as you have not been diagnosed with West Nile Virus and have not been unwell whilst abroad or since you returned from the country visited. Please mention your visit to the staff at the session. If you have been unwell or diagnosed with West Nile Virus then please call us on 0300 123 23 23.
