    (CNN)Some people who recently got a booster dose of Covid-19 vaccine are noticing swollen lymph nodes.Don't panic, doctors say. Swollen lymph nodes caused by vaccination are temporary, harmless and a sign that the vaccine is working. But to avoid unnecessary anxiety and uncertainty, women planning to get a mammogram should know that swollen lymph nodes right after a vaccine dose might show up on a mammogram, the US Food and Drug Administration's top vaccine official said this week. Covid vaccine much safer than catching the virus, study finds"If you are a woman, and you're going to get a mammogram, and you get your booster shot, call and tell them you're getting it (or) you've gotten it," Dr. Peter Marks, head of the FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said at a town hall hosted by the Covid-19 Vaccine Education and Equity Project."If you're going to get it, you might want to get your mammogram first before you get it, or you might want to wait a couple of weeks because if those lymph nodes turn up on a...
    THIS is the day millions have been longing for: We can hug again. Yes, pubs are letting us back inside for a drink for the first time since Christmas. ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest updates 2We can now hug again - but it's fine to waitCredit: Alamy But 420 days after the start of the first lockdown, when we were told to keep our distance to protect loved ones, we can hug friends and family again instead of elbow bumps and blown kisses. Hugs are not only comforting, they are proven to be good for our health. When you grab and hold someone you love, it releases oxytocin in the brain. That is the same “happy hormone” released when you have sex, in childbirth and when you breastfeed.  It works to counter the “stress hormone” cortisol, so a hug really can make you feel better after a tough day. Hugs may also protect against illness and a study found they can benefit heart health by reducing blood pressure and lowering your heart rate.  Touch can reduce anxiety,...
    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” White House Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said that fully vaccinated people can go to indoor restaurants, but “it’s a relative risk. When you have a lot of infection in the community, then you want to be careful. That’s why we say, wear a mask.” Host Joy Reid asked if fully vaccinated people can eat in indoor restaurants, fly, or hug their older relatives. Fauci said, “You know, it depends on the level of infection in your community. It doesn’t matter what the level of infection is, if you are vaccinated and you want to have something in the home, you, your family if they’re vaccinated, if grandma wants to come in and she’s vaccinated and see her grandchildren, they don’t, necessarily, obviously, need to be vaccinated. They can’t. Nor does the mother need to be vaccinated, as long as they don’t have an underlying disease that would make them very susceptible to a severe outcome. So, you could go to a restaurant if you’re — but it’s a relative risk. When...

    Genevieve Hansen leaves the Hennepin County Government Center after testifying in the Derek Chauvin murder trial on Tuesday. It didn’t take long for the defense for Derek Chauvin, the ex-Minneapolis cop, accused of murdering George Floyd, to zero in on a Black mixed martial arts fighter and witness to the brutal arrest. The testimony of Donald Williams, who was being questioned as a mixed martial arts expert, started on Monday and continued on Tuesday. He laid out a sequence of events that with the testimony of a 911 dispatcher, a firefighter, and an 18-year old girl who recorded the arrest as a teen helped shred the defense’s assertion that what played out on recorded video shouldn’t be a focal point.  Eric Nelson, Chauvin’s attorney, tried to paint a picture, distorted as it may be, of an angry, mob-like crowd hampering officers’ efforts on May 25, 2020 near the Cup Foods store where Floyd was detained. The attorney asked Williams during his testimony on Tuesday: “Do you recall saying ‘I dare you to touch me like that, I swear I’ll slap the f—k out of both of you?’” Williams responded: “Yeah I did....
    A family wearing masks enters a hotel room. Halfpoint Images/Getty Images More Americans are vaccinated and taking trips, but do they need to quarantine once they arrive? Health experts told Insider that it might not be necessary to quarantine after a trip or vacation. But if you live with unvaccinated people or visited crowded indoor places, it's smart to be careful. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. As more Americans are fully vaccinated, tourism is on the verge of a booming comeback. But is it necessary is to quarantine after your bucket-list vacation or visit to family if you're fully vaccinated? "I have a straightforward answer: No, it is not necessary to quarantine after travel," Dr. Leana Wen, an emergency physician and public health professor at George Washington University, told Insider about fully vaccinated people.  At the time of writing, the CDC hasn't issued specific travel guidance for fully vaccinated people, and it continues to urge people not to travel. However, Wen pointed to the CDC's most recent guidance that says vaccinated people do not need to...
    Dr Anthony Fauci has warned that the US could follow in Italy's footsteps and see a second coronavirus lockdown if restrictions are lifted too quickly as new cases plateau and deaths decline. Fauci, the nation's leading expert on infectious diseases, made the rounds on Sunday morning shows and cautioned that the US isn't out of the woods yet as it continues to see roughly 55,000 new cases each day - down from a peak of nearly 249,000 per day in mid-January.  'Even though the decline was steep, we absolutely need to avoid the urge to say: "Everything is going great,"' Fauci told Meet the Press.  'It is going in the right direction, but once you declare victory, the metaphor that people say: "If you are going for a touchdown, don't spike the ball on the five-yard line." When you plateau, there is always a risk of a surge. That's what the Europeans experienced.' It comes as cities and states around the country continue rolling back restrictions and Americans flock back to pre-pandemic activities like going to the movies, dining indoors and attending sporting events. The ramped-up reopenings have been...
    PEOPLE with a "severe" allergy should not take the Covid vaccine, according to FDA officials, but administration sites will be equipped with tools to handle allergic reactions. FDA Biologics Director Dr. Peter Marks on Saturday addressed reports that some people were experiencing allergic reactions to the jab - and specified that only people allergic to an ingredient in the vaccine should avoid it. 2The Pfizer vaccine was granted emergency use on FridayCredit: PA:Press Association 2Dr. Peter Marks said vaccination sites will be equipped with tools to handle allergic reactions "About 1.6 percent of the population has had a severe allergic reaction, of some sort or another, to a food or some environmental aspects," Dr. Marks noted during an FDA press conference on Saturday morning. "We would really not like to have that many people not be able to receive the vaccine," he said. "So we looked very closely at the databases and we feel comfortable telling people that, unless they've had a severe reaction to the vaccine or one of its components, they can receive it." Dr....
    LGBTQ Rights Milestones Fast Facts Music sends a pleasurable chill through the brain Whole Foods CEO says the company hasnt lost its identity, but likened the Amazon acquisition to a marriage: If you dont change, youre going to get a divorce © Provided by Business Insider Whole Foods CEO John Mackey. Dustin Finkelstein/Getty Images for SXSW Whole Foods CEO John Mackey said the company's acquisition by Amazon is like a marriage and that has led to some changes at grocery chain.  "I always use this analogy, when you get married, do you change? And the answer is, 'duh.' If you don't change, you're going to get a divorce," Mackey said during an episode of Freakonomics Radio. "So, Whole Foods is changing, but not because Amazon's cramming a bunch of things down our throat, but because they do a lot of things that we want to take in." Amazon bought Whole Foods in 2017 for a reported $13.7 billion. Mackey has described the deal as a "whirlwind courtship" and that it was "love at first sight" for the two...
    WHEN the coronavirus first hit Britain hard, everyone accused Boris Johnson and his government of being too slow to react. Then, last weekend, when they suddenly announced that people coming home from a holiday in Spain would have to quarantine themselves for two weeks, everyone said they’d been too hasty. 8Boris Johnson needs to get a blunt message across to Brits to save livesCredit: PA:Press Association They can’t win. And perhaps they don’t deserve to. I’ve completely lost track of what I’m supposed to be doing these days. It’s all ­bubbles and barbecues and keeping a metre away from people. Or is it two? There are signs everywhere telling us to stay at home. Meanwhile on the radio, Boris is telling us to go to work. We are allowed to sit next to each other on a train or in a plane but not in a theatre or at a concert venue. We have to wear a mask but not in a pub, and whatever happened to washing our hands? That was cited as the most important thing...
    President Donald Trump told Fox News host Harris Faulkner in an interview that aired on Thursday that if Washington State officials do not fix the situation involving an occupied region in Seattle that the federal government will intervene to solve the problem. “If there were more toughness, you wouldn’t have the kind of devastation that you had in Minneapolis and in Seattle,” Trump said. “I mean, let’s see what’s going on in Seattle, but I will tell you, if they don’t straighten that situation out, we’re going to straighten it out.” “What I mean is very simple,” Trump continued. “We’re not going to let Seattle be occupied by anarchists … no, we’re not going to let this happen in Seattle. If we have to go in, we’re going to go in. The governor’s either going to do it — let the governor do it. He’s got great National Guard troops. So he can do it.” “But one way or the other it’s going to get done,” Trump concluded. “These people are not going to occupy a major portion of a...
