One of the girl from our Walk Around the Island is organizing a Blood drive. I’m usually not eligible for donation because of vaccins or exotic places we have visited. Never knew living in France was a problem.
After some research it turned out it’s because of possible risk of Transmission of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (Mad Cow decease) in the U.K during that period and France imported at least 5% of their beef supply from the U.K. before 1996. There are also 5 cases of vCJD in France.
