A 58-year-old man underwent DOTATATE PET/CT scan for follow-up of pulmonary neuroendocrine tumor after resection and adjuvant chemotherapy. On screening paperwork, the patient indicated having received the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine (Janssen Biotech, Inc) 1 day previously, administered in the right deltoid muscle.
