What to know about the COVID-19 vaccine and your annual screening mammogram

Okay, here is something new I learned today.

The COVID-19 vaccine and your annual screening mammogram are important for your health.

But, some women who receive the COVID-19 vaccine develop swollen lymph nodes under their arm on the same side as their vaccine injection, which is a normal immune response to a vaccine. 

You don’t want to to be told you have a cancerous nodes when it’s just due to getting the vaccine.

Avoid having a false positive result by following the guidelines listed below: 

  • If you have not started your vaccination process, please schedule your annual screening mammogram before your first vaccine dose
  • If you have started your vaccination process, please postpone your annual screening mammogram until 6 weeks after your second vaccine dose
