This recent study found that in a significant percent of cases, lymph node swelling from the vaccine is lasting longer than 6 weeks:

"Based on their analysis, the interpreters determined 29 percent of patients had positive axillary uptake seven-to-10 weeks after their second vaccination dose. Specifically, 42 percent, 31 percent, 25 percent, and 19 percent had these findings at week 7, week 8, week 9, and week 10, respectively, the team said.
And, these lingering findings are also being seen with breast imaging. Stamatia Destounis, M.D., FACR, a radiologist at Elizabeth Wende Breast Care in Rochester, New York, confirmed she is seeing the same findings in screening mammography in her practice.
"Now, it can be several weeks later after both vaccines are completed that we are still seeing quite large lymph nodes," she said. "We're seeing them on both sides, and it can take up to 12 weeks for these lymph nodes to go down in some patients."
