Schedule an Appointment

Mammograms and the COVID-19 vaccine: Based on guidance from the Society of Breast Imaging, Baylor Scott & White recommends that patients schedule their routine screening mammogram either before receiving their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine or at least four weeks after receiving their final COVID-19 immunization.* This recommendation applies only to routine screening mammograms and not diagnostic mammograms.

*In some cases, part of the body’s natural response showing that the COVID-19 vaccine is working is temporary swelling of tissue in the armpit. While this temporary swelling is harmless, it can interfere with the quality of a screening mammogram.
