The vaccines that prevent COVID-19 can cause swollen lymph nodes under the arm where the shot was given. Your lymph nodes are part of your body's germ-fighting immune system. The swelling in the lymph nodes is a sign that your body is responding to the vaccine and building up defenses against the virus.
In order to prevent this, you may want to wait to schedule your annual mammogram before you have your first dose of the vaccine or 4-6 weeks after your second dose of the COVID vaccine.
If you prefer to fo ahead and proceed with your mammogram, let the mammogram tech know when you had your vaccine and in which arm. This information will be helpful to the radiologist interpreting your images.
