I had 11 nodes removed last month during my SNLB with lumpectomy. I do not have lymphedema, but I do know that is a risk.
You are absolutely right that you need robust protection from Covid. As cancer patients, we learn quickly that we have struggling immune systems that begin to struggle even further during treatment.
My oncologists aren't letting me do anything experimental. I am thankful for their combined wisdom. Truly, the last thing I would do during cancer is to sign myself up for an experimental therapy not even out of Phase 2 trials yet without any long term safety studies and thousands of reported deaths and injuries, according to VAERS. I would not touch experimental injections with a 10 foot pole.
Instead, I have been fully protected this past year with zero concerns about any variant, thanks to the Frontline Covid Critical Care Doctors (FLCCC.net) and their very specific published protocols for Covid prophylaxis and treatment with astonishingly effective early treatment (iMask and iMath). Their protocol includes medications long proven safe and effective: IVM, Vitamin D, C, Zinc and Melatonin. Their patients, when treated early, do not have any problems from exposure to the virus. I take 12mg of IVM every week per my doctor's prescription. It's interesting that several of these medications are already helpful for certain cancer patients, so the unusual timing has been a double blessing for me.

If you're interested, the FLCCC has a weekly Wednesday Q&A webinar with their international teams of doctors answering questions about the protocol and how amazingly successful it has been to protect us from Covid. Their website is FLCCC.net.

mRNA Vaccines May Need More Study for Treating Some Cancer Patients
COVID-19 vaccines that employ new messenger RNA (mRNA) technology to fend off the illness may require further testing before it becomes clear they are safe for cancer patients with solid tumors, cancer treatment experts say. That would include the vaccines from Pfizer Inc with partner BioNTech SE and from Moderna Inc. The vaccines work by carrying genetic instructions for making a protein from the virus that the immune system learns to recognize and defend against. The mRNA is encased in a microscopic "packet" called a lipid nanoparticle (LNP), or liposome, that protects and delivers the fragile molecule into cells. While this technique is new for vaccines, it has long been used to carry cancer drugs into tumors, because tumors easily take up liposomes. This raises the possibility that tumor tissues would capture some of the liposomes carrying the vaccine's mRNA, said Gerard Milano of Nice University in France. The potential for part of the vaccine to become stuck in tumors and the resulting effect on cancer patients "is an open question to which there is currently no answer," Milano said. In a paper published on Wednesday in the British Journal of Cancer, his team calls for "a careful evaluation of the efficacy of these promising mRNA COVID-19 vaccines administered as lipid carriers for patients with solid tumors, including a possible re-appraisal of the dosing for optimal protection of this specific and frail population."
