The NYT had an article about the swollen lymph nodes after the vaccine--now the recommendation is to wait 6 weeks before any imaging or have it done before you get the vaccine.

Agree with edj3. The recommendation from the radiology expert panel is to wait six weeks from the vaccine before having any scan. Obviously this applies to screening and routine surveillance, not where there is a new concern or urgent matter. Also, they say to delay the scan, not the vaccination.
