Mammograms and the COVID-19 Vaccine – What You Should KnowSwelling of the lymph nodes is a known side effect of the COVID-19 vaccine. Although it is temporary and not harmful, these enlarged lymph nodes may be seen on your mammogram. Because swollen lymph nodes can indicate breast cancer, we may call you back for additional evaluation and possible follow-up imaging. To avoid this, please schedule your mammogram before your first COVID-19 vaccination or four weeks after your second-dose vaccination.

Cancer and the COVID-19 Vaccine
There is currently no data that suggests current or former cancer patients should avoid getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Cancer can weaken your immune system, so we recommend that most patients get the vaccine as soon as possible.
