The current COVID-19 vaccines do not contain live virus.
If you've been vaccinated, there is no evidence that your donation will transmit infection but it may contain protective antibodies against COVID-19.
There is also no evidence that donations from vaccinated individuals will increase the risk of thrombosis in the recipient.
You can donate 48 hours after having the vaccination.

and anyway people who have had live vaccines donate blood too - MMR for example - certainly doesn't preclude one from donating blood

I am not aware of a recomended minimum time frame between recieving a live vaccine and donating blood - but is possible there is one.
