Carrie Bickmore admits she noticed a VERY interesting change in her upper half after getting a Covid shot – as the project hosts reveal the BIZARRE side effects they got from the vaccine
- Project hosts share details on temporary side effects of Covid shots
- Some women in the US claimed their breasts got bigger after getting Pfizer
- Carrie Bickmore revealed she had swollen lymph nodes after vaccination
The Project hosts have shared intimate details about the side effects they’ve had since rolling up their sleeves for the coronavirus vaccine.
Carrie Bickmore revealed that she found an unusual but harmless lump on her breast after receiving Pfizer, while Steve Price had bad dreams after his AstraZeneca shot.
The lively discussion on Monday night’s program was sparked by reports that some women who had had the Pfizer shot claimed that their breasts have since grown due to swollen lymph nodes.
“Not just women, I’m afraid,” Pete Hellier joked.
Co-host Bickmore then opened up candidly about the changes she’s seen in her own breasts since she got the Pfizer shot.
“This is exactly what happened, and I have to admit I clicked on the clickbait today because mine didn’t go up a size, but I was thinking when I was in the shower, after I got my Pfizer, I saw a lump, and I thought that was odd, I’ll keep an eye out for it,” she said.

“I texted a friend the next day around the same time as I had the jab and asked how she was feeling, she said ‘fine, but my lymph nodes are under my arms’ and I was like ‘of course, that’s what it is”.’
Her revelations prompted fellow panelist Steve Price to join the conversation.
“You’re getting bigger boobs and I’m having bad dreams from the second shot of AstraZeneca,” he told Bickmore.
“That was the side effect I had.”
Co-host Pete Helliar asked Price if his bad dreams were about bigger tits.
“Maybe,” Price laughed.
Waleed Aly added: “He won’t reveal it.”
The unusual and temporary side effect dubbed the ‘Pfizer boob job’ has led to an increase in mammogram appointments in the US, where vaccine rollout is much more advanced than in Australia.

The Australian Department of Health states that enlarged lymph nodes are a less common side effect of the Covid-19 vaccine.
“These side effects are usually mild and usually disappear within one or two days,” the website says.
Some recipients will experience more significant flu-like symptoms from this vaccination compared to other common vaccinations and may need time to not engage in normal activities.
“These symptoms can occur after either dose, but are more common after the second dose.”
More than 11 million doses have been administered since the vaccine’s introduction in Australia began five months ago, with nearly 13 percent of the country’s population now fully vaccinated.
dr. Jeanette Dickson, chair of the Royal College of Radiologists in the UK, said swollen lymph nodes can occur after getting the shot, but it’s nothing to worry about.
“Almost everyone gets an immune response after getting the shot in their arm,” she said earlier this year.

‘This response is greatest in the lymph nodes in our armpits, which drain fluid from the arm – the swelling of which can then be seen on screening mammograms, which is what these scans are designed for.
‘In cancer care, we also see some visible swelling of the lymph nodes in the armpits of recently vaccinated patients undergoing CT and PET-CT scans.
“When patients undergo a scan, they should inform the imaging team if and when they had their COVID-19 shot and in which arm.
“These lumps can form after the vaccine and are nothing to worry about.
‘But if there is no lump a few days after the injection, we advise patients to consult their GP if the cause is more serious.’
