Ladies, this pandemic is completely uncharted territories, so there is always something new being released that we all need to know. Both men and women, but today, this new release specifically focuses on women.

Usually between the ages 45-55 women get a mammogram every year. After that, it’s usually every two years. Researchers are saying that a possible side effect of the vaccine is swelling of a lymph node that could give  false positive of breast cancer. I read that experts recommend women should wait approximately 4-6 weeks before taking a mammogram. Honestly, I suggest that you consult with your physician before and after vaccinations to ensure you are covered.

Do you have plans to take the vaccine and receive a mammogram?
