About the COVID-19 Vaccine and Your Annual Mammogram
We strongly encourage all those who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine to get vaccinated. One potential side effect of the COVID-19 vaccine is a temporary swelling of the lymph nodes in the arm where the shot was administered. This temporary swelling can be detected in a mammogram. For this reason, we encourage you to schedule your annual mammogram either before you get vaccinated or wait until four weeks after your second shot. If you have questions about this please call us at 661.200.1099.
