Adverse Reactions to Blood Donation Among Adolescents—Reply

JAMA. 2008;300(15):1759-1760. doi:10.1001/jama.300.15.1760-b

In Reply: Dr Symvoulakis and colleagues relate the significance of our findings to the situation in other areas of the world. We agree that targeted counseling may help counterbalance adverse reactions, and we share their concern about the potential detriment to attitudes about blood donation that adverse reactions may have on the message conveyed by the young donors to their family members and friends. We also recognize the importance of an ongoing effort that is focused on improving the donation experience, especially for young donors.
