Germany ZKRD (ION-6939)
Germany does currently not have any specific regulation as far as SARS-CoV-2 vaccination and stem cell donation is concerned. The decision if a donor is eligible for PBSC donation after (any) vaccination is generally made by the collection center's physician. They will consider European (https://www.ecdc.europa.eu/en/publicationsdata/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19-and-supply-substances-human-originorigin) and WMDA (https://share.wmda.info/display/DMSR/Vaccination) recommendations in addition to German national guidelines, but decisions are made individually.
