Mayo Clinic Minute: Mammograms, COVID-19 vaccines and timing [Video]

If you are due for your annual breast cancer screening and vaccinations, including vaccinations for flu and COVID-19, you may want to consider timing to avoid any concerns. That’s because some people can have swelling in their underarm where they receive the shot. That’s a normal sign the vaccine is working. However, swelling could cause a false reading on a mammogram.Dr. Kristin Robinson, a diagnostic radiologist at the Mayo Clinic’s Breast Clinic explains why timing may help avoid false positives.________________________________For the safety of its patients, staff and visitors, Mayo Clinic has strict masking policies in place.
