Re: CVID and immunizations
You asked, "What if the plasma donors aren't properly immunized?"
That is exactly the reason why the first step in the manufacturing process is to pool at least 10,000 individual plasma donations from a cross section of geographical locations in the US.
Also the FDA dictates that only plasma donated in the US can be used to produce immune globulin sold in the US, even though some of the products are manufacture outside of the US. They ship the plasma off shore and ship the finished product back to the US.
Hope that helps.
