    This is asinine! As someone who has worked in healthcare, and in labs specifically, this is horrifying. Homosexuals are extremely high risk. When I worked in the blood bank, they were not allowed to donate. If you were from high risk countries, you were not allowed to donate. Times have changed. I remember the eighties when many people got AIDS from blood donations and hemophiliacs got it from their Factor 8. (which is made from plasma). In this day and age, I would not have a blood transfusion. If I were to have surgery, I would donate my own blood in advance or get it from a trusted family member. (and one who is not vaccinated). This is downright scary!
