I had no pain or discomfort immediately after the shot, during the 15 minute observation period, or an hour after. About 2 hours later (at 2:00 pm), I developed some hives around my neck, and the part of my arm near the injection site started to become more and more sore. I applied Benadryl to the hives and they went away. However, my left arm hurt to touch or move, much worse than any vaccine I've had before (flu, HPV). That night, I had trouble sleeping because the discomfort because of the sore left arm. I also could not sleep because of chest tightness and pressure, which worsened when lying down, but that pressure did not progress to the point of wheezing (I have asthma). Sleeping on my back was the only option because sleeping on either side was painful, which worsened the chest pressure. When I woke up, my fingers felt stiff and I had joint pain in both hands, more so in my left hand. Throughout this, I did not see any redness on my arm. This day it was agonizing to move my left arm. I could pick things up, but raising it above my the height of my waist or twisting it behind my back to get on my backpack was near impossible and was avoided. The chest pressure went away. The second night, I still had trouble sleeping, but the pain was much better, although I still could not sleep on my side. When I woke up, I had no more joint pain. That day, although the left arm was still sore, I could move it pretty well. If I made too strong of a movement, it felt like the injection site would tense up, the pain would slowly ramp up, and then diminish. That afternoon, at 4:30, I was able to play tennis with minimal soreness, and that night, I was able to sleep on my side. The following day, I had a cough, but that might have been because I didn't dress for the weather, and experiences close to zero soreness.

Patient became woozy when she returned to her second floor work area. Her colleagues came to get me in the auditorium. When RN and I reached patient she was very weak, she was sitting in a chair. I instructed her colleauges to call 911 immediately. Patient was having a little trouble breathing. I think she was scared. I gave her 10 mlL of benedryl and RN administered a 0.5 mL dose of epinephine in her left arm. Patient was helped to the floor and her feet were elevated. RN put on a blood pressure cuff. Before she could get a reading, the paramedics were there and took over. Patient was transported to Hospital.

Approximately 15-20 minutes after vaccination patient developed weakness in her limbs. BP and glucose were normal. Approximately 10 minutes after the onset of symptoms the patient developed bright red rash on the face, increased breath rate, and swelling of the lips and tongue. She was having difficulty talking due to shortness of breath and swelling in the tongue. 911 was called and epinephrine 0.3mg IM was administered as well as diphenhydramine 100mg orally. Her rash improved fairly quickly, swelling went down a small amount. She stated breathing still felt labored and she was feeling like her heart was racing but she was also tired (likely due to medications administered). She was still having difficulty talking, taking short breaths between almost each word. Paramedics arrived approximately 12 minutes after epinephrine was administered. They attempted to walk her to the ambulance per her request, however she was unable to feel her legs. She was placed on a stretcher and into the ambulance. The patient stated she was given additional epinephrine in the ambulance as her condition had worsened by the time they got her in there. She was taken to the ER and given additional diphenhydramine and was observed until approximately midnight, when she said she was discharged. Follow up was completed the following day, and she had improved dramatically. She was still feeling a bit weak, but no longer had any issues breathing.

My other symptoms were high fever, fatigue, chills, sweating, and sudden rapid heartbeat, a little chest pain in my left part of the chest, and muscle and body aches, and a little difficulty breathing.

04/26/2021 got the shot. An hour later, I had shortness of breath. Kept persisting throughout the week and worsened. On sunday, 05/02/2021 between the hours of 12AM to 2AM, my shortness of breath got worse to the point where I could not breathe. In general, I felt my back and chest tighten. I could only breathe (faintly) to survive. If I took any deeper breaths, my back and chest would hurt even more. As time progressed, My right neck got stiff. Then right my jaw got stiff. Then the right side of my head got stiff. Eventually, the whole right side of my body was numb -- I could move it still but it was still numb and stiff. This happened simultaneously with the breathing issues. This entire time, my whole was tensing, it felt like I could feel my veins while it rushed blood. It was terrible. I thought I was going to die. I did not know which breath would be my last, because every breath got worse and worse. I went to sleep around 2AM and I would periodically wake up. When I'd wake, the pain still persisted. It never went away. Eventually I got up to go to work around 8AM, the right side of my body wasn't as numb and the breathing wasn't as bad, but you could still tell there was an issue. This issue persisted throughout the day. As of now, these issues are not as persistent, but at least once a day, I still feel the effect. It sucks. A nurse called me (working at the urgent care I gave information about) , on 05/03/2021 saying if I was going to see a primary doctor. I told her that I have an appointment with one on 05/10/2021. She said that though they called me on 05/02/2021 towards the end of the day and told me everything was fine, that they looked a little deeper and realized that the shape of my cells were weird and that when I go to my primary doctor, they'd be able to access my information. This is of a complete shock because the shape of my cells were never weird before. This happened as a result of the covid-19 vaccine. This is reaction must be put into the VAERS system.

I got my depo shot a week and a day after I got my 2nd dose of the vaccine. Shortly after I was driving home and I felt like there was an elephant sitting on my chest. I couldn?t get my air in I was freaking out. I drove home and was so weak walking into my house I thought I was going to pass out. I told my mom I think I need to go to the hospital. I sat down. Ate some food and tried to relax. It eventually went away and I started getting ready to go to school. Just as I was getting ready to leave I got a huge migraine and started feeling really shakey. That?s when I decided to go to the doctors. They made me take some bloodwork, EKG, X-ray. They suspected from my white blood count that I might have a blood clot so they ordered an emergency cat scan. I got one done and they told me no blood clot. Then today I came in for more bloodwork and they told me that some of my waves from my EKG were slightly abnormal which meant I wasn?t getting enough oxygen into my heart. They want me to take an echo which in that they put me out and shove a scope down my throat and look at my heart. They think it was a reaction from taking my depo so soon after my covid vaccine.

On the night I received the COVID-19 vaccine, I had a fever that went up to 103 degrees Fahrenheit. In the morning 24 hours after I had the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, I felt a little better from the night's fever and ate instant ramen, oranges, acetaminophen, and a vitamin C tablet. This was at about 8:45 AM. A few minutes or a minute after I swallowed the acetaminophen and vitamin C, I got a severe allergic reaction that led to me going to the Emergency Room. I have eaten these things before and am not allergic to acetaminophen, vitamin C, or anything in the instant ramen. The reaction was first felt by a shortness of breath and I could barely breath. Then, hives started to form on my face and my lips and face became extremely swollen. I then ended up throwing up after my mom gave be a Benadryl pill and I drank another Benadryl after. My face had become less swollen but it was still difficult to breath and hives started to form all over my body so we decided to rush to the Emergency Room. We got to the Emergency Room at about 9:30 AM and the hives on my body were worse. They were able to calm down the reaction by giving me more Benadryl through an IV and steroids. They knew I had the second dose of the vaccine so they did not give me anything that would suppress my immune system. Timewise, it could be the acetaminophen, but I have taken acetaminophen in the past many times before without a reaction.

I work up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and felt nauseous, I don?t remember much but I remember waking up on the floor in a cold sweat, so I assume I passed out from the nausea. I went back to bed and I woke up with a 101.8 fever and weakness and muscle pains. My mother told me to take Tylenol every 4 hours and be on top of things, my symptoms have been decreasing since this morning but as I am filling this out at 11:00 at night I?m slowly getting my fever back. I will add this is exactly how I felt when I got covid back in November of 2020.

Vaccinated Tuesday 07/06/2021 at 12:00pm. At 12:15 I was having palpitations, and my throat felt tight, I attribute this to anxiety, I was nervous to get the shot but think it should still be noted. At 1:00 or 2:00 that afternoon, I noticed about an inch around where the shot was injected I had small white head like bumps, that if scratched or pressured drained white puss. At 3:00pm that afternoon, I stood up from my bed and felt pressure in my head similar to sinus pressure you can get from a cold. I had no congestion. On Wednesday 07/07/2021 I woke up and my upper L arm was in significant pain. The area that was vaccinated had a 2-3 inch radius that was bright red in color. The area where I was injected had a 0.5-1 inch radius that was dark purple. This area was hot to the touch, firm, and swollen. The pain was constant but worse when touched. On Thursday 07/08/2021 there was no new symptoms and the skin reaction started to go away but was still present. Today Friday 07/09/2021 the skin reaction is still present but improved. It is still painful to the touch. The redness is gone but the dark purple circle is still pressent. It is still slightly firm, and is no longer hot to touch. It is still slightly painful to touch but not bothersome when left alone. Today I had to leave work early due to a drop in blood pressure at 12:00pm. Around 10-11am I was standing and typing when I felt like I had come down with the flu. This happened rapidly within 2 minutes. I felt feverish, I was sweating, I felt nauseous, but I did not vommit, I felt as though I was going to faint. I had one of the nurses at my workplace check my blood pressure. It was 107/72. Within an hour it rose to 108/72 so I decided to go home. It should be noted I do not normally eat breakfast. I stay well hydrated. I had only had my medication, and water at the time of this event which is normal for me. I was given crackers, and juice that did not help. I am unsure if this is related to the vaccination but think it should be noted.

Pt reported that at about 7pm the day of her vaccine she developed a rash on her left arm/leg. It was itchy and so she took a Benadryl. She said her "throat felt thicker" but the Benadryl helped. She went to sleep and was fine. When she woke up the next morning on 1-6-2021 she reported the rash had spread. When she got to work and found me about 9:30 am to ask if that was normal I encouraged her to call her PCP and take a Benadryl. At that time she was having no difficulty breathing. She chose to call her PCP and not take a Benadryl as it makes her sleepy. After she called her PCP she ended up leaving work. I found out later that her breathing had become labored and her neck/throat was starting to swell. Per her report, her PCP gave her epi and steroids, and R/X her an epi pen. She took her medicine and Benadryl around the clock and returned to work on 1-8-2021. When I spoke to her on that day she stated all of her symptoms had resolved, but her lymph nodes in her neck were still a little swollen.

The whole reaction probably lasted a little less than a minute from the time it happened to when they stuck me with the epipen.

Minutes after receiving the first dose of the Moderna vaccine, patient complained of difficulty breathing. I asked if she was wheezing and she said no. A doctor in the clinic came over and even though it wasn't time for patient and her sister to leave (based on 15-minutes after receiving the vaccine) he initially suggested that they might be fine to go, but after patient told him of her symptoms and at my urging he decided to have her stay a little longer. I think it was at this time that he had someone check her pulse. I don't know what the pulse reading was. He stepped away and shortly afterwards patient started complaining that her throat felt strange and was making it hard to breathe. The doctor immediately came back over, found patient was having difficulty breathing and holding herself upright in the chair. I held her by the shoulders to keep her from falling while the doctor also steadied her and asked a worker in the room for an epi-pen. The worker didn't seem to react much to the request so he told her louder that he needed an epi-pen. She started searching her area and the doctor started yelling across the room to others that he needed an epi-pen. It seemed like others initially took the demand less urgently than they should, but eventually someone came with an epi-pen. By this time I don't think patient was very conscious, if at all. Sometime during this time the doctor also instructed someone to call 911. The doctor tried using the epi-pen but at first he had some kind of cap on it that prevented it from working. He removed the cap and not finding an easy way to have a sterilized injection site he injected the epi-pen through patient's jeans. Soon afterwards a cot was brought out and workers had me step aside as they took patient and put her on the cot. Patient seemed to gradually become more aware of her surroundings and it wasn't long before she appeared to me to be fully conscious once again. They checked her blood pressure and pulse and maybe did other tests during this time. Eventually the ambulance arrived and patient was very clear with everyone that she did not want to incur the expenses of riding in the ambulance and I offered to bring her wherever they suggested that she should go. They watched and evaluated her for a while and eventually had her sign the form declining the ambulance transportation. They suggested that she make an appointment with her doctor but did not suggest that we take patient to an emergency room. We departed and patient did not afterward seem to experience any symptoms from the vaccine other than some of the general feelings of being sick, soreness at the injection site, etc. that others report with the Moderna vaccine.

Approximately 12 hours after the event, I had throat swelling, chills, sweats, temperature of 102.5, headache, muscle soreness, dizziness, lightheadedness. Onset was over the course of about 1 hour. I had previously taken part in the double-blinded Astrazeneca in COVID-19 trials (meaning I did not know I was vaccinated) in November 2019, so the nurse told me that the response could really be from anything: partly due to some interaction between the vaccines, allergy, and/or already producing antibodies. I was unblinded and told I was given the Astrazeneca vaccine. Interestingly, I had none of these responses to just the Astrazeneca vaccines, just a bit of soreness after the first one. I have never had such a strong response, and I believe this is the highest my temperature has ever been, and my lymph nodes are still swollen. I am much better now; however, even last night and this morning, I was feeling unwell.

I received an allergy immunotherapy shot the day before my first dose of the vaccine and instantly felt nauseous and extremely tired after receiving the vaccine, which continued for two days after receiving tut. Three days later, I woke up struggling to breathe (but not anaphylactic), covered in hives, itchy all over, shaking, disoriented, and chilled but not truly feverish. I reported this to my allergist, who prescribed prednisone and suggested the vaccine combined with immunotherapy were too much for my immune system for one week. The hives, itchiness, and difficulty breathing lasted about four days. I struggled with fatigue and nausea for over two weeks, stopping all school and work in the meantime. After my second dose, I feel just a bit tired and sore, so I think this truly was a bad reaction to the two injections combined rather than to the vaccine itself. Still, it was a debilitating experience, and I would recommend considering putting out guidance that other immunotherapy patients space out their allergy injections and vaccines farther than I did.

The date of the second dose was 05/25/2021, which is when the side effects started. I had the normal and expected effects, such as a sore arm and fatigue. I began my period that morning, before I went in for the shot. I would like to be as detailed as possible, so I will likely include some graphic details in this description. My apologies in advance. My period normally lasts 3-4 days and is moderate (as far as I know) regarding blood loss. After the second dose, the flow was extremely heavy and my period lasted for almost an entire week (7 days). It was miserable. I was bloated and tender in that area, and extremely tired. I was also cramping, which is unusual for me nowadays. About two weeks after that, I felt a stabbing or ripping pain in the uterus area. It stayed for about two days, throbbing every minute or so. I could not sleep those days. It was not so unbearable that I could not perform everyday actions, but it was taking up a good portion of my thoughts that weekend. After that, it went away and I thought it was over. About three days ago from today (today is June 22nd, or 06/22/2021), the pain returned and I knew it meant the start of my period. The timing was normal. The next day I began bleeding, but the flow is again much heavier than normal. The pain is back and much worse than before. I am going through many more pads than usual and it is, for me, a worrying amount of blood. Since this is the second period in a row I am experiencing this, I felt it was necessary to report it in. I hope this is okay and not taking resources from those with worse issues. I would also like to note that I experienced my first panic attack in 5 years the night of my second dose (for no reason- they've always had a concrete reason for occurring) and my anxiety was notably worse that week (I am on medication and was otherwise doing very well managing the anxiety). During the attack I experienced the usual symptoms: my throat closing up and making it harder to breathe, and uncontrollable shaking and crying. I was not thinking of anything that would make me nervous at the time of the attack. I had just finished an online gaming session with a friend and was showering to prepare for bed, so I was fully relaxed. Additionally, my mental health has notably dipped a bit over the last month, though there are a number of factors at play and I don't want to blame the vaccine for that. However, I was told to at least make note of it here just in case there does end up being a correlation.

1/14/21- 10:30am Noticed some fullness/swelling in throat. Was still able to breath fine, but definitely noticed a difference. This lasted a few hours. 1/15/21- 3:45am I got up to use bathroom and noticed I was very lightheaded. I thought maybe I just stood up too fast. I got back in bed and my arm was 8/10 pain so I also thought faintness could possibly due to pain. 7:15am I got up to go to work and quickly felt very warm and my vision started to go black. I laid back down for a few minutes until this resolved. I took my temperature and it was 99.0. I got up again and started to get ready but began feeling light headed again. I ended up getting ready while sitting down because I kept feeling too much like I was going to pass out. I ate breakfast and felt fine. 8:00am I left for work and after driving for about 5 minutes I felt myself getting very warm again and light-headed. I ended up pulling over and calling for someone to come pick me up. 9:00am My temperature was 99.5. My blood pressure laying down was 110/74 and HR was 74. After standing for 5 minutes my BP was 90/70 and my HR was 92. During this 5 minutes of standing I felt myself getting warm again but my vision did not start to go black and I was able to stand for the full 5 minutes. At various times throughout the day I would feel faint if I was standing or sitting upright for too long. The last time I felt this was was probably 11:30pm on 1/15/21. 1/16/21 - No light-headedness or warmth. Did feel some slight chest pressure, but nothing crazy and it only lasted maybe half of the day.

Right after the injection, I had minor arm soreness which increased as the day went on. Approximately 12 hours after the injection I started feeling very tired and achy. My arm hurt very badly and I started getting chills. About an hour later I had a 101.1 degree fever. I also experienced very slight shortness of breath which went away when I used my albuterol inhaler. My shoulder where I got the injection hurt so badly that I could like raise it, lie on it or touch it really. The fever continued into the night but was gone by around 9am. I continued to feel tired and achy all day the next day, with occasional shooting headache pains. I did feel better and better as the day went on though. Question: I take a daily supplement of 6g of marine collagen. I happened to take the marine collagen 1 hour before the onset of chills and fever - could there be a correlation between the collagen and the worsening symptoms? I have never had any type of reaction to the collagen before and have been taking it for about 3 weeks.

At about 06:15 PM after receiving the Moderna vaccine, patient left hand (the same arm the shot was given) began to turn blue-grey. The nurses there kept her in a room for about an hour, and monitored her vital signs. Everything seemed to be normal except for the discoloration in the skin. She had trouble breathing and some lightheadedness, but it was ruled to be an anxiety response as everything looked normal. Over the time spent in the clinic, the color began to become less intensely blue and fade back to a normal skin color -- but not completely. At about 7:30 PM, she got up to walk and started feeling pins and needles in her arm and upper chest, but this may be due to anxiety. The feeling disappeared not long after, and we were able to make it home and eat. Everything else that night went OK, except for the fact that her hand is, at the time of this report, still blue-ish in color.

- 22 year-old female - Tested positive for COVID-19 on January 31, 2021. My symptoms lasted 21 days and started with major gastrointestinal issues, headache, and cough. - Had a negative COVID-19 PCR test on February 25, 2021 - this negative PCR was needed to travel back. - Landed on February 28, 2021 and completed my quarantine at my parents house. - I returned to work on the 15th of March, 2021. - Over the weekend I traveled and flew back on April 5, 2021. Because I had flown, I was doing a courtesy and went to the local store to get a rapid antigen test. APRIL 8, 2021 - left work at 12:30 and went to the store to get the rapid antigen test which came back positive. I was told by the nurses that it only came back positive because it has been less than 90 days since I initially tested positive. I was told I did not need to self-isolate and could go about as normal. I had my second dose of the Moderna vaccine on this day at 2:00 p.m. I went to get my second jab. Just to be safe, after my jab I went to the local urgent care where they took a nasal swab for a PCR test. The results of the PCR test came back Saturday, April 10 about 7:30 that evening and the result was "NOT DETECTED". SYMPTOMS: Thursday, April 8th about 8:00 pm I started to have difficulty breathing and taking a deep breath was difficult. I put it down to anxiety about the initial positive test. Saturday, the difficulty breathing continued, along with new pressure in my chest. I was unable to sleep Saturday night - as soon as I was nearly sleep, I would wake up gasping for a breath. Sunday, the pressure in my chest continued and so did the difficulty breathing. I went to the Emergency Room on Sunday, April 11 about 4:15 pm - they took a chest x-ray, ran blood tests, and did an EKG which all came back completely normal - no pneumonia, heart attack, or blood clots. The doctor gave me a 1 mg dose of an anti-anxiety medicine because he could tell I was very stressed. He later prescribed me Prednisone (3 tablets a day for 4 days). As of today, I am still having a very hard time taking a full, deep breath and continue to have pressure in my chest.

Was fine until I stood up at approximately 9:30pm. Immediately got very fatigued, head started hurting. Bent over to pick something up and my back hurt around where my lungs are; it hurt to breathe. Within 15 minutes I could barely stand up. After about an hour of the symptoms intensifying, I started to get a low grade fever. I took something for the symptoms (alka seltzer daytime pill), but went to bed shortly. I started waking up off and on around 6 (I normally sleep in until noon). At 7am, I woke up feeling like I was on fire. I grabbed my thermometer from my nightstand- it read 104 degrees Fahrenheit. I tried to open my medicine but I was so weak I couldn?t do it myself. I walked downstairs and woke my mom up. She took my temperature and it read 103 since I was no longer in my bed warmed by my body heat. She opened my nighttime alka seltzer and gave it to me along with 800 mg ibuprofen. I went to bed with nothing but a sheet and a cooling pillow. At some point my mom came in and handed me my water but I don?t remember it, however it helped cool me down when I fell asleep with it in my bed. When I woke up at 11, my fever was only 100 and it was the only symptom I had. When I got out of bed at 1, I was fever free. I?ve been fatigued the rest of the day but the fever hasn?t returned and I?ve been taking 325 acetaminophen every 4 hrs.

Came back positive for developing mono along with my other symptoms 6/23/21: Went to cardiologist where I was cleared for a good heart 7/13/21: Visited Gastroenterologist for stool issues that I noticed changed since the vaccine. Experiencing loose stools that are orange since the vaccine in April and now have a nerve triggered my body to make me feel faint whenever I go to bathroom. A colonoscopy is scheduled to make sure nothing else is going on. Overall, I have developed many adverse events that have left me incapable of doing anything. I cannot get a job because I feel awful still and would not be able to withstand a workday. It has also given me horrible anxiety that I NEVER had before that coincidentally appeared when I got the shot and hasn?t left. I still feel these symptoms mentioned above.

I received my second dose of the Moderna COVID vaccine at approx. 10:40 AM on Friday, January 29 at clinic. By 12:00 PM, I noticed that I developed facial swelling, which was most significant around my eyes, and I felt lethargic. Between 12:00 PM and 2:00 PM, I developed hives on my neck, chest, stomach, and arms, which prompted me to take 1/2 of a dose of 25mg Benadryl. Nonetheless, the symptoms persisted and I began to experience dizziness and tightness in my throat around 4-5 PM, which was when I was advised by a nurse to go to the emergency room for treatment. I arrived at Hospital's Emergency Department around 6:00 PM and I was treated for "Possible Allergic Reaction Major."

I am almost a licensed pharmacist so I am aware of what was going on with my body* I started with a sore arm and fatigue on the day of vaccination. The following morning I woke up and got dressed and used the restroom. I proceeded downstairs to make my coffee. As I was doing so I became dizzy and nauseous. I sat down on the floor and then I lost my vision and hearing. I broke out in a profuse sweat and had no concept of time. My boyfriend was with me and said it took 5-10 minutes before I began to normalize. I apparently had shallow breathing and turned pale white including my lips, I slowly regained awareness although I never fully lost consciousness. 911 was called and paramedics arrived. by this time I had begun to normalize with most of my vision returning. I ended up declining to see medical attention because I normalized and told the paramedics I would seek attention if it came back. * please note the physician listed is my PCP but I was not seen for this reaction.

"This patient seen by facility on 1/13/21 after reaction to her first dose was told that she needed PEG/polysorbate skin testing prior to her second dose. For unknown reason the patient arrived to vaccine clinic on 2/9/21 without allergy skin testing or follow up. She reportedly told them that she was ""cleared by Occ health"" after her first reaction and the administering RN said that there was no flag on her chart so she was given the vaccine. Unfortunately, immediately after she got it, she developed throat tightening and got zyrtec. The reaction progressed very quickly (minutes) to diaphoresis, panic, grabbing at throat saying she was suffocating, nausea, and difficulty verbalizing. She was diffusely red but no hives. They couldn't get a BP and O2 sat and temp were normal but they put her on a non-rebreather and gave her Epi. Rapid response was called and she was taken to the ED.

Within 30 seconds of the injection of my second dose of Moderna, I experienced extreme nausea unlike any that I have experienced before. Within 1 minute of the injection, my face, arms, chest, and neck flushed and I turned completely red. I felt hot and started to sweat. At the same time, I began having trouble breathing with the sensation that my throat was beginning to close. My eyes filled with tears and I was not able to talk to communicate what was happening. My mom, who was with me at the time of vaccination, asked the administering pharmacist if I could remove my mask because I was having trouble breathing. Throughout this reaction, the pharmacist froze and was visibly in shock of what was happening. Because of this, my mom began asking me questions to figure out what else I was experiencing. Once I was able to remove the mask and breathe deeply, the reaction subsided after two minutes. The pharmacist, after my reaction began to subside, stated that they had an epipen ready to administer if needed. I was never administered the epipen. The pharmacist asked me to wait 30 minutes instead of the general 15 minutes before leaving the site. Because the symptoms went away and did not return within the 30 minutes, I left the site. After the vaccination, I experienced a low-grade fever for 79 hours, chills, a headache, muscle aches, and extreme fatigue. After realizing my reaction was not considered ?normal,? I began to research and realized these symptoms align with anaphylaxis, even though they subsided quickly after experiencing them.

Patient was in observation area chair 1 and technician noticed she was pale in color and patient waved technician over to her. Technician went to her and then alerted Pharmacist that patient was feeling light headed and was pale. I went to patient and asked her how she was feeling and if she was having any trouble breathing. Patient was starting to slouch in her chair and I asked her if I could lower her to the ground. At that time, she passed out and was unresponsive. I lowered her to the floor and supported her head with my hand. She was unresponsive for about 5-10 seconds but then her eyes popped open wide and she made a large gasping breath. She was very disoriented and asked what happened. As I talked to her and asked her questions, she became oriented with her surroundings and was able to verbally communicate with me how she was feeling. Patient was reporting tingling in hands, heart racing, and was visually shaky. I asked her if she wanted me to call EMS and she responded yes. At this time, patient was beyond the 15 minutes post observation waiting period. Technician called emergency number, I stayed on the ground with the patient and continued to assess her symptoms and her breathing. The color in her face resumed to normal and she was able to use her cell phone to contact her father. While sitting on the ground with her, she reported she was beginning to feel better, but was still feeling weird in her head. At that time, EMS arrived and took over.

Patient appeared to be having a pseudo-seizure according to family report. She was found upright in her wheelchair, and appeared to have difficulty breathing. She was maintaining her airway, and did not have any oral secretions present. She appeared to be unresponsive with verbal communication, in addition to making eye contact. EMS called per family and nursing decision. Bilateral feet were placed on a nearby chair, and the patient remained upright in her wheelchair. Upon EMS arrival, patient was assisted into gurney with nursing assistance. All patient belongings were presented to the paramedics at this time.

Severe fatigue, headache, arm pain that lasted 5+ days, and severe heart fluttering (kept feeling like it was pounding out of my chest and skipping a beat). I made sure my blood pressure was stable (usually reading 128-135 systolic) and tried taking my propranolol for anxiety to stop the effect. Nothing really made it go away. This is not normal for me, but unfortunately I had to work so I worked through it. Would cause me to feel out of breath at times. It finally went away for the most part on the Monday of the next week, but it comes back occasionally.

Obese female patient with history of diabetes and seizure came to our pharmacy for second Moderna covid dose. A few minutes after receiving the vaccine, she was feeling lightheaded and nausea. I asked the patient to come back in to the consultation room where she could sit or lay down on the floor. The patient was able to walk back into the room with a little assistance from her mother. She sat on the floor for a bit, still breathing fine, and said she wanted to throw up. I grabbed a trash can, napkins, and a pedialyte bottle for her. She did not throw up but started breathing a little heavier and said she was about to faint. I got the epi pen ready and told her please lay down if she has to. At this point she fell to her right side and slightly hit her head against the wall. It appeared that she stopped breathing for few seconds, but I still felt a pulse on her wrist. It also appeared that she went into a seizure, her upper body stiffened up and her arms were slightly flailing. I immediately called 911 and about 1 minute later, both the mother and I could clearly see the patient breathing as indicative by the rising/lowering chest. I also felt a stronger pulse on her wrist. I did not inject the epi pen. Paramedics arrived shortly and after about 5-10 minutes of talking to her, the patient began to gain conscious but looked exhausted. They transported her to the hospital. Per the mother, patient was completely fine after the first dose of Moderna; also just had a seizure a few days before the second Moderna dose. The whole incident was about 20 minutes from administering the vaccine to paramedics transporting her away.

?Within the first 15 minutes - injection site felt hot (right arm). ?Within the first hour - right arm felt heavy with some numbness/tingling that lasted less than 10 minutes. ?3 hours post vaccine - mild arm soreness with ROM, but not to the touch. ?7 hours post vaccine - I felt very fatigued. I could have gone to bed at 1600. I could barely keep my eyes open. ?8 hours post vaccine - fatigue was still very much present, moderate arm soreness with ROM and now to the touch. I felt very feverish, but was afebrile. ?10 hours post vaccine - fatigue was a little better because I had taken an hour nap. Body aches and headache had set in, and I still felt feverish without a fever. I couldn?t stop shivering. I needed to be under multiple blankets with long sleeves, pants and thick socks on to feel even a little bit warm. ?13.5 hours post vaccine - fatigue and body aches had worsened. It?s a struggle to go from laying to sitting and sitting to standing. I even fell back down to the couch a few times because I didn?t have the strength to stand up all the way. Right arm soreness has progressed enough that lifting up a water bottle was a struggle, and I could not lay on my right side. My temp is now 101.4°. ?I tossed and turned between 0200-0630 shivering and aching all over. I slept with my entire body (even my head) under the blankets to try to stay warm. My head was throbbing. I got up at 0630 to take some Tylenol and woke up sometime between 0630 and 1030 drenched in sweat, so I?m assuming I had another fever. ?30.5 hours post vaccine - it?s now January 1st. Body aches/stiffness, headache, fatigue, right arm soreness still very present. Switching any type of body position was a struggle. Temp is 101.2° now. I got out of bed at 1045 and got back in bed at 1200. I stayed in bed until 1845. ?48 hours post vaccine - slight headache and right arm soreness. Right arm ROM is very doable again. My neck, shoulders and hips are sore, but much better. Fatigue is gone. I?m able to move around fine without any struggle. I still have SOB from March, but I feel like over the last 24 hours it?s worsened a bit.

Pt c/o itching and tingling at site of injection. Upon inspection RN observed redness, swelling, and irritation where pt had been scratching the site. Offered to give pt benadryl on site, but pt refused because it "knocks her out" for 13 hours. Advised to take a non-drowsy antihistamine when able, use cold compress, and stop scratching the site. Pt was asked if she was having any other issues at that time, which she denied. Telephone call made to patient at 4:18pm to follow up. Pt stated she started to have an itchy throat and throat swelling and went to the hospital. There she was offered Benadryl but declined. She was given a steroid injection because she was having "difficulty breathing". Pt states ER doctor recommended a non-drowsy OTC antihistamine, and was unable to tell her if the difficulty breathing was an allergic reaction or due to anxiety. Recommended following up with 2nd dose in 4 weeks but to see her PCP before that time to discuss. Pt does not have PCP, so I recommended that she establish care and have an appt prior to her 2nd dose

On January 21 I received my first dose of Moderna vaccine on my left arm. After the vaccine I had a red lump that was hot and a bruise that only lasted 2 days. Everything was fine until the January 28th when I developed a large red lump during the day while at work that was severely itchy and hot. When I got home from work I had a low grade fever. I made an appointment with my primary care for the next day which was Friday the 29th. My doctor told me she believes I had cellulitis. I was given an antibiotic 2x a day for 7 days. She drew a purple circle around the area and told me that if it goes outside the marked area or I feel any new symptoms, to go to the emergency room. Saturday morning on the 30th i woke up to my entire arm red and hot. I felt like I had a huge sunburn. I couldn?t put my sweatshirt on because it was so hot. The emergency room doctor told me I was fine and to keep taking the antibiotics that were given to me yesterday from my primary care doctor. After the emergency room I went to work and started to feel dizzy and nauseous. My hands became sweaty but the rest of my body was cold. I started having a butterfly feeling in my chest. My Apple Watch alerted me that my heart rate was over 100 bpm. That night before bed I had another low grade fever. On Sunday the 31st I noticed the red area was gone but instead it was a dark purple. I felt okay Sunday besides a rapid pulse. Monday February 1st I woke up out of a dead sleep sweating, butterfly feeling in my chest and dizzy. I tried to take my pulse while laying down but it was so fast I couldn?t keep up with it. I put my Apple Watch on which alerted me immediately that my pulse was 152 bpm. I slowly got up but then I passed out falling off of my bed. I couldn?t get any words out because my heart was beating so fast that I couldn?t breathe. I was sweating horribly and had a hard time walking. Had absolutely no strength in my left hand, my arm was purple/red, cold and numb. My arm felt like someone punched me repeatedly and gave me a dead arm. I called my primary doctors office and they were able to get me in that afternoon. All morning my pulse was spiking and then drastically dropping. About an hour and a half before I went to the doctor everything was fine. I was able to talk but still struggled with breathing while talking. The doctor ordered an EKG which came back clear. My pulse and blood pressure was also fine. The doctor told me she believed all of the symptoms I had were from the medication I take at night (doxazosin-to relax my muscles and help with sleep.) She also told me she believed some of it was my mental health issues taking over. She told me the cellulitis looked fine and sent me home. Later that day I felt exhausted and when I woke up from a nap, I had a fever of 100.5. Took Tylenol and it dropped to 99.5 but wouldn?t go any lower. February 2nd I woke up to a large red ring outside of the purple marker, numb finger tips and butterfly feeling in my chest. All day I received alerts that my pulse was falling and spiking. I sent my primary doctor an email and she told me she didn?t think it was cellulitis anymore, maybe a hematoma but she wasn?t sure. Since January 28th I still struggle everyday with the butterfly feeling in my chest, blurry vision, low grade temps, alerts of pulse, dizziness and breathing difficulties. My arm is always hot, my finger tips are numb and sometimes the strength in my hand is gone. The top of my arm is always a dark purple with red blotches and other times my entire arm is red and hot. When my pulse is very fast, I have a hard time talking, remembering what I was going to say and focusing. I?ve had multiple coworkers ask me if I?m okay because I?ll randomly stop talking and stare off and then I?m alerted that my pulse has either spiked or dropped drastically after spiking. My pulse is never consistent. It is always ranging from 57-155bpm. I realized at first I may have what they call ?COVID arm? but my symptoms haven?t gotten any better. No answers have been given to me or a diagnosis. The first diagnosis that they thought was cellulitis. Then it was ?in my head and behavioral.? Then it was a hematoma. Now it?s an ?I don?t know.? I have tried Benadryl for the itching, ice packs for the days that I?m swollen, Tylenol for the fevers and pain but I never have any relief.

the first day (1/16/21) following the first dose of the vaccine, i began experiencing nausea. the third day (1/18/21) i vomited that morning once but then not again throughout that day. after that for about two weeks, i was just generally nauseous and also had no appetite. food tasted off to me. this went away after two weeks, but then i got my second dose on 2/12/21. on 2/13/21, i spent about 12 vomiting very consistently, about every 10-15 minutes. i also had chills alternating with profuse sweating and hot flashes, but did not ever have a fever. other symptoms included headache, extreme fatigue, dizziness, body aches, shortness of breath, and chest pains. the next day, i was fine aside from some slight lingering nausea but no vomiting. since then, i have experienced nausea intermittently every day, and have vomited on more than a dozen of those days. i have no appetite, and have now lost ten pounds since getting the second dose. i realized that my main food aversion is to meat, i will vomit every single time i eat meat now. i?m not sure if this is my reaction to the texture and taste like i think it is, or if it?s actually more like an allergic response by my stomach. i also still struggle with shortness of breath and feeling like my chest is tight, as well as dizziness and a nagging cough.

I had pain in my left arm, and within an hour or two I was pretty exhausted and out of it. I figured it would go away, it got worse the next day, and finally on Saturday when I woke up it was hard for me to breathe and I had pain/tightness in my chest. I went into the ER on Sunday morning and after a day of testing was diagnosed with: - Deep vein thrombosis of bilateral lower extremities - Pulmonary embolism, bilateral - DVT, bilateral lower limbs I had at least 5 clots in my legs and several more in my lungs but they said there was no way to know the full amount. I had been on HRT for over two and a half years and had no problems, then 4 days after I received my first shot I was informed that I had almost died several times due to the clots. When I explained to my doctor that I thought the clots were related to my shot he shrugged it off, said it was impossible, told it was just my hormones, and said that "Covid is no big deal and we're overexaggerating how bad it is compared to other things...". So I don't think any of this was reported. Later I saw a blood specialist who told me it was impossible for hormones to do this much damage in the span of a few days without something else effecting it, and told me to cancel my next shot even after we learned I had APS. All and all I would really appreciate someone looking into this to at least make sure there isn't something else going on, as the timing of this is was too close and I know Covid shots have had the rare chance of causing the exact kind of thing I went through.

I received my vaccine around 12:45pm. They had me go to waiting room and wait for 10 mins. I sat down and was waiting for a few minutes when I started to get dizzy. I looked up and told the lady checking people in ?hey I?m getting really dizzy can I lay down? she said yes come in the room. When I stood up my heart started beating really fast. I sat on the table and my chest started feeling tight and heavy. There were 2 ladies in the room at this point so I asked one of them if they had an epipen on hand just in case. My throat wasn?t swelling but it was getting harder to breath from the tightness in my chest. She said they didn?t have an epipen and would have to call emergency services if I needed one. I told her I didn?t know what was going on, that I didn?t need one yet but she should probably call emergency services if they can?t do anything to help me. (ER is right across the street) my symptoms went away shortly after they called. But came on a couple more times but much milder over the next 30 minutes or so. The EMT gave me Benadryl and the ER ran some tests.

She appeared pale and was crying and hyperventilating. She stated she had a funny feeling in her throat and numbness in her fingers. We prepared to administer an epi-pen but she was increasingly anxious so we had to place her in a supine position first. Immediately she started to feel better, her color was normal and her blood pressure was 110/70 with a pulse of 67. Her throat no longer felt ?funny.? We continued to monitor her and did NOT administer epinephrine. An ambulance arrived and she was ambulatory and feeling normal so declined transport.

She said she and her mother both have a history of passing out with any procedure involving needles and she does not feel her symptoms were caused by the vaccine itself.

Starting 01/16/2021, there was itchiness and a cluster of red papules/wheals that showed up on my right back. The rash continued to spread the next few days with increasing papules and itchiness. The rash is localized to my torso. Most are on my right abdomen and right back but is now spreading to my left side and upper back. There are also a few under and on my right breast and below both my armpit areas. The rash is still erythematous, with some that are papular and some appearing like vesicles. There is still itchiness and some stinging sensation. I am currently on Hydroxyzine 25MG at night and Zyrtec OTC during day but it has only been 2 days since I started the meds. The itch does wake me up at night time. So far the antihistamines have helped a bit with the itch. At the same time, I appear to have a sore throat though it feels more like a mild swelling of my throat as whenever I swallow it feels sore.

My arm where the vaccine was felt itchy. I had a rash all on my left arm and upper chest where I had received the vaccine. Immediately, I took a benadryl then went to sleep. Around 3 AM I woke up uncontrollably shivering. My fiance was able to get me a heater because I was so chilled with shivers but was sweating profusely.

About one hour after injection: I had a burning sensation in chest and throat and swelling feeling; I felt a bit of throat swelling. I got very tired about two hours after and arm pain. The throat and chest burning/swelling sensation slowly dissipated within an hour or so. Around 4 pm, I got pretty bad heartburn - very rare for me. Very distinct heartburn feeling; uncomfortable and that lasted about an hour. I had body aches at night time before I went to sleep. The next day I woke up feeling fine. One week later, I had another response. I had my throat start to swell again and this time it was worse. I had itchiness on my arm on the 6th night but I didn't really notice it but that seventh day, I realized there was a rash and itchiness in my arm. I had broken out all over my face - tiny pimples had broken out. I contacted an allergist - I was getting scared about my throat. The allergist said they had seen this a few times after the vaccine - told me to take Pepcid and Benadryl. I did that and that took away the feeling in my throat and made me feel better. I continued both those OT meds for 3 or 4 days. On fourth day, I started getting throat swelling again and the rash on my chest - these were more mild symptoms than earlier but I called the allergist and he advised I take Pepcid and and Zyrtec instead of Benadryl for three or four more days. That helped. After that I seemed to be good. On 13th of January - shortness of breath and chest pain. I spoke with Dr and got a COVID test. I had my inhaler at that point (I haven't had asthma in years and I had to take the inhaler a couple of different times throughout this time). 14th of January - Chest pain. 22nd of January - Chest Monday. On Monday, the 25th, I started taking - in advance of my second dose of Moderna- Zyrtec and Pepcid twice a day on the 25th; twice a day on the 26th - on morning of 26th, I took Zyrtec again an hour before the second dose of the Moderna vaccine. I got the 2nd dose on the 26th. (The days that I had chest pain - I took ibuprofen and that seemed to help.)

As soon as I got the vaccine I was able to taste the vaccine,. Within 5 minutes I felt dizzy and within 15 minutes I couldn't feel my arm. I got a rash throughout my whole arm, and was warm to touch as well as a tingly sensation in my whole arm. It passed on to my right arm and started losing sensation and the tingly feeling started as well. Within 45 minutes I started breaking out throughout my whole body, within 1hr 15min. my legs felt weak and I couldn't walk. I felt dizzy, the whole room was spinning. They were going to send me to the hospital but I didn't want to go and I went home and injected myself with an EPI pen. and also took 2 Benadryl's. I started feeling my throat close but not all the way, I could feel I was having an allergic reaction. I just had a really bad headache and went to sleep from the Benadryl . I woke up with my eyes little swollen, and a rash on my left arm and chest area, my whole body was very itchy. This lasted for two days. The doctor at my work said if it got worse to go to ER and or urgent care. They didn't recommend me getting second dose.

I began to have shortness of breath two days after receiving the first dose of COVID. This lasted a week. I went to the doctors and they did not have any other answer except "anxiety". I was given Propranolol for anxiety but it did not help with my breathing at all. After a week, I was back to feeling like myself. However, I just got the 2nd dose of vaccine and the shortness of breath is back and shows no signs of stopping. It has been over a week since I've had these symptoms. I know for a fact this is not anxiety, it is something physical.

I was hurting a lot. 8 out of 10 - the pain. My arm was so but my chest was in pain. I couldn't breathe. I was so light headed I thought I would pass out if I stood up. I went to ER - Dr thought it was from my wearing personal protection equipment - mask and goggles for work after receiving the vaccine. He told me I was fine but I was so much in pain that I was too out of it to ask for tests. I was in pain for two week. Chest was in pain. I had to use my inhaler once a day at least - sometimes more.

I was Vaccinated on Friday March 26, on Sunday night March 28 I had a sudden episode of uncontrollable shortness of breath while sitting having and not strenuous activity. Immediately went to emergency room. First blood pressure on examination was 180/100, also experienced tachycardia with heart rate fluctuating between 100-120s while sitting on stretcher SPO2 remained normal at all times between 98-100%. All exams performed (Labs, Ekg, CTA, UA) showed normal results per MD. Symptoms began to subside on their own and was give small dose of Ativan to continue to help symptoms subside and was discharged with a diagnosis of "anxiety". Today is March 31st nearing April 1st and I have had intermittent shortness of breath at times just sitting down and other times when performing light activity tachycardia and shortness of breath. I do not agree with the diagnosis of "anxiety" as today I had an episode of shortness of breath and tachycardia after conversation and laughing with my spouse without anything on my mind completely distracted the symptoms began. I am a healthy 25 year old woman with no serious past medical history the only change that occurred before my sudden symptoms was receiving the vaccine just 2 days prior and I truly believe this was the cause.

I got the shot and waited the 30 minutes since I tend to have adverse reactions, but nothing noticeable happened. I went to get a donut, drop something off with my partner's sister, then home to take a nap. All I had that day was a donut and water. When I woke up about 4-5 hours later my throat felt tight and like a more mild anaphylactic reaction than my really severe hospital one to triptans. I calmly went downstairs and took benadryl and waited around my partner a to see if it would improve which it did. It ended up going away and I though nothing of it the rest of the day. I just had a sore arm for the next two days. I also ate the rest of the donuts the following days and didn't have any reactions.

Arm pain, arm swelling, bruising at the site of the injection, loss of grip strength in injection arm, all within 10 minutes of vaccination. Within a few hours, tiredness set in, additional loss of grip strength in both hands, but especially in the arm that received the vaccination. 9 hours after the shot, severe fatigue set in, as well as hot and cold flashes, switching between fever and chills, headache, excessive sweating, weakness, nausea, vomiting, joint pain, body aches, skin pain, and flare-ups of old injuries. I woke with tremendous, debilitating neck pain as well, which was the site of previous whiplash injuries, in both my neck and lower back, and my knees hurt as well. Woke every hour or so throughout the night, severe symptoms. By the next morning after the shot, the fever and chills had stopped, as well as the nausea and vomiting. Fatigue remained, headache on and off, and body aches. By day 3 most symptoms had gone away except for tiredness. By day 4 I started to notice sun sensitivity, and on day 6 have developed what seems to be a heat rash? My forearms are hot, red, sensitive, and reactive as well. Every day since the shot I have gotten tired in the afternoon as well, even if earlier in the day I felt OK. Have had mild shortness of breath in addition, but nothing that has stopped me from regular activity. As a 25 year old, I experienced incredibly severe symptoms, and this was my first shot of Moderna. No known previous exposure to Covid, either. Noticed that symptoms started worsening rapidly around 6 p.m. the day of my shot after taking my borth control pill as well. Wondering if related, or possibly coincidence.
