Either get the mammogram screening done before the first COVID-19 vaccine dose, or four to six weeks after the second shot.
Grimm says the recommended timetable is the same whether you’re getting the Moderna or Pzifer vaccine.
The last thing physicians want is women canceling their mammograms all together, which happened often in 2020.
“We’re concerned women are going to skip two years and we know that when we screen regularly, we catch breast cancer at the earliest stage possible. Unfortunately, breast cancer is just so common, it’s really important that women stay on top of these health maintenance things and don’t let it slip,” said Grimm.
