Do I need to be vaccinated to be screened?

No, however you will be asked details about your COVID-19 vaccine history, as this may be relevant clinical history for the specialist radiologist interpreting your screening examination.

Will I need to wear a mask?

Masks are not mandatory in BreastScreen WA clinics, however masks are available in all clinics should a woman wish to wear one.

If I bring a support person what are the requirements for them?

You may bring someone with you, and they may choose whether they wear a mask or not. 

Can I still be screened if I was recently vaccinated?

Yes, it is still safe and important to be screened.
