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

Is it safe to get a mammogram during or after the COVID vaccination process?

Yes, it is safe. Our radiologists are aware that some women may experience pain, swelling and/or enlarged lymph nodes in the armpit on the side where they had the vaccine; this is considered an expected or normal reaction. However, if you feel a lump in your armpit that lasts for more than six weeks after your vaccination, you should let your healthcare provider know.

Do I need to wait to get my mammogram if I’ve had the COVID vaccine?

No, there is no reason to delay your mammogram. In fact, maintaining your annual screening protocol is important for your breast health. If you are experiencing any new breast symptoms please notify your physician immediately.
