He initially had a slight temperature, some chills, slight cough, runny nose and those symptoms except for the cough seem to have resolved, what hasn't resolved is about every 30 or 40 minutes or so he had been having to urinate ever since 26Feb2021 night, his mouth has been constantly very dry. Still urinating every half hour 45 minutes and ongoing. Mouth has been very dry and had a couple of areas where it seems like maybe he had bit his lip or something, maybe when he was sleeping. It was nothing like that in mouth anymore but the mouth is still constantly so dry like dehydrated and no matter how much of fluid he drank that doesn't seem to help it and what in fact has also caused was on yesterday morning he had been a little constipated on Friday night and then yesterday morning had a severe case of diarrhea. Now he had not had another bowel movement since yesterday morning as no appetite and feeling so lousy, and so tired and fatigued. He had been feeling even much worse since getting the vaccine.

Those last problems are still true. I periodically cough up phlegm and lacking a good place to spit it out, I just swallow it. I have for the first time in my life been using a walker for stability. Right arm is almost useless due to pain.

He had too many red blood cells due to bone marrow, he got on iron infusions, and if his red blood cells gets to high, then they will perform phlebotomy to have them taken out. This was his second year receiving the infusions. He goes in once a week and they test him and sometimes he was able to get the infusion and sometimes he had to wait till the next week.

Advised to contact hcp. Him and his wife have their second shot scheduled for 28Feb2021. He was told that it can be given up to 4 days ahead or anytime after. He read that Pfizer recommends 21 days between doses The feeling in his heel has stayed the same. States he slept ok. He does had a bad back. When he woke up and tried to put the weight on his left leg he can walk a couple of steps and his heel was killing him. Pain shooted up his leg. It was hard for him to walk. The back of his knee and calf are not really that bad, but he can feel it, he can barely walk. Caller asked have there been any reports of this and how long does it take for the pain to disappear. Caller stated the clinic where they received the vaccine told them the second dose can be scheduled 4 days before 21 days or a week or so after 21 days. Caller also asked if that was going to cause a problem if the second dose is scheduled 28 days after dose 1? they responded saying that "The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine vaccination series was 2 doses given 3 weeks apart. This was how Pfizer-BioNTech studied the vaccine. Provided disclaimers that Pfizer was unable to speak outside of the EUA fact sheet and Pfizer was independent of a company guidelines and recommendations. He hoped the heel pain was going to go away and it was something from the vaccine, not something else. The outcome of the event was not recovered.

He was instructed to drink water and walk if he was able, he did that and it helped. The patient relays that he was fasting that morning and thinks that had some degree of relatedness in the lightheaded feeling. He ate lunch and the light headedness resolved but now he has a slight headache. He was reading the paperwork and on the form under severe reactions, it mentions dizziness, weakness, and difficulty breathing. While he is breath ok, he has noticed a slight degree of tightness in his chest. He did not see this listed but wants to know if this is normal or if it would be related to the difficulty breathing. His main concern is if this is a severe reaction. He had lab work done prior to getting the vaccine, then none afterward. The events did not require visit to emergency room and physician office. The outcome of the event 'lightheadedness' was recovered while unknown for the other events.

Progressive lower extremity weakness with markedly diminished reflex: Per the history it appears that patient has had a progressive course of this problem over the last 1 week. His symptomatology is mostly consistent with gait ataxia with some lower extremity weakness. He mentions that his weakness of the lower extremities became more and more pronounced towards the end of the week when he would start trembling in his legs whenever standing for some time. Although he had some numbness and tingling few days ago but that does not seem to be the predominant symptoms. There was no preceding symptoms of any viremia prior to this. Although he has Covid in January, however he did not have cough expectorations upper respiratory infection or any diarrhea in the last 1 month. He has not been exposed to any new pets or any new medications. His clinical exam suggest a lower extremity weakness more proximal than distal although there appears to be some sensory sparing. He has diminished reflexes all over including absent reflexes in his lower extremities and many of the upper extremities. His imaging study did not show any specific etiology for the cause of his problem. He does not have any spinal etiology and his exam does not show any upper motor type of involvement. His spinal fluid shows a high protein with no cells consistent with cytoalbuminogenic dissociation. So he definitely fits with the diagnosis of acute immune mediated demyelinating polyneuropathy or Guillain-Barré syndrome. On IVIG therapy. Overall appears to be some improved however not still able to walk.

A little over a week ago I was admitted to a local hospital having been diagnosed with Guillain?Barré syndrome, a debilitating condition where the body?s auto immune system attacks the nervous system resulting in peripheral numbness in one?s hands, feet and legs. This condition was diagnosed by a neurologist. Following his diagnosis, I spent 8 days in the Hospital and was treated for 5 days with a daily dose of 400ml of immune globulin (IVIG) to rebuild the damage to my nervous system. On April 10, I began to feel the onset of Guillain Barré syndrome as the bottoms of my feet suddenly began to tingle and feel numb. The next day I tripped while returning our waste management garbage cans to our garage. Fell face forward onto the driveway and was bruised pretty bad. The next day my BP zoomed to 224/160. 911 was called and I was taken to our local hospital fearing and thinking that I was having a heart attack. I spent 4 days in the hospital being checked for a possible heart attack and all the while my Guillain Barré syndrome was progressing undiagnosed. I was discharged and instructed to see a neurologist for the tingling and numbness in my hands, legs and feet. Within 15 minutes of the neurologist consult, a few days following my discharge, I was told I had Guillain Barré syndrome and get to a hospital. I left his office and went straight to the emergency room and I spent the next 8 days there and was discharged Tuesday, 4 May 2021. Several hospital neurologists treating me believed the vaccination triggered the syndrome as do I. It's not being widely reported even though there have been several Facebook postings of people saying the same thing as me.

On March 2, he woke up feeling bad and had a fever of 102.7. He took tylenol and liquids all day and the fever came down to around 100. The next morning he woke up complaining of excruciating pain in his left arm (site of the injection). He couldn't stand to have anything touch it, couldn't move it and couldn't sleep because of the pain. The next morning he woke up very weak, wasn't able to speak clearly, wasn't making sense. He had a telemedicine appointment scheduled that morning for another matter. The doctor took one look at him and said we should have him evaluated asap. I took him to the emergency room at Hospital. They did some tests and said he was septic and immediately put him into the ICU. He was started on IV antibiotics while the blood cultures were growing out. It was determined that the bacteria was Strep G but they were unable to identify the source. He was put on a ventilator and an echo cardiogram was done. It was believed that the source of the infection was his pacemaker and I was told the pacemaker would have to be removed. They couldn't do it at that hospital. He was transferred to another hospital. The doctors at that hospital determined the pacemaker was not the source. It was believed by some doctors that the source of infection was the injection site. The infection was cleared from his body and the ventilator was removed after 2 weeks. He lived another 2 weeks but never was able to recover. Until the day he was put on paliative care, he expressed pain in the arm where he had received the vaccination. He died at 5:30 a.m. on April 1, 2021.

3rd day after shot had lots of phlegm in morning lasting about a week. Easy to cough up. Green/yellow. More than a teaspoon. No breathing problem but did feel fatigued. After coughing up in morning, no other phlegm all day. Then, for a week, I had trouble with balancing, like walking after too many drinks. That has essentially resolved itself. OK now. Really don't know if adverse reaction or possibly a 'bug'. Thought it best to let you know.

About 2 weeks following 2nd vaccination I began to experience dizziness when first laying in bed, getting out of bed or chair. I have never had this before and am otherwise quite healthy. I have tried Epley maneuver for Vertigo. I still have the problem. Blood pressure was normal. I contacted my PCP after 2 weeks and he referred me to an ENT specialist. Internet sources say this happens to 18% of Covid vaccine recipients. So I question if the ENT Dr would be of any help, and can this go away soon on its own.

Someone from Pfizer needs to give me advice. If not I'll go to the news network. I don't feel well. It's directly related. No one has given me relief or help. It's impacting my life. I've been sick every day. Is there someone above you who can tell me what to do? I took their (Pfizer's) vaccine that was recommended. It was your vaccine. Not mine. Someone has to have an answer for me. Unless you want to go and have lawsuit and the news. Just think about it, if you had to go through the symptoms of having the flu everyday. Please relay this to someone. If I don't heard back within a week, then I'm going ballistic. It's not going to be pretty. Someone has to get back to me to help. I want someone to tell me that I'm not crazy, I'm not the only experiencing this. There has to be an answer. I took your vaccine. You are responsible. I want to know. I can't be the only one in the whole world who is feeling like this. I've been to the ER and the doctors. I've had every side effects but theirs go away in a few days, but mine hasn't. I need advice, that I'm not nuts, something that will help me get better. I want to feel better. It's effecting my family my life. Doesn't it seem odd? I can't be the only one? Someone has to know something. They (drug companies) like to hide the facts. I am sick because I took BNT162B2 vaccine. I need someone to get back to me."

he fell in the bathroom and passed out; he fell in the bathroom and passed out; tested positive for Covid; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient's son). This consumer reported similar event for two patients (father and mother). This is the first (father) of the two reports. A 79-year-old male patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE; Dose 1) via an unspecified route of administration, administered in the left arm on 26Mar2021 (batch/lot number: ER8727) at 79 years old as SINGLE DOSE for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history included ongoing AFib (atrial fibrillation) diagnosed between 1 and 2 years ago. Patient also has a pacemaker from an unknown date. Patient was exposed to COVID-19 prior to vaccination. Concomitant medication included apixaban (ELIQUIS) oral from an unspecified start date and ongoing at 5 mg twice a day taken for AFib (atrial fibrillation). On 07Apr2021, the patient was admitted to the hospital due to a fall; he fell in the bathroom and passed out. The patient is on Eliquis, so they were worried about bleeding. He tested positive for COVID on 07Apr2021, this was the same day he was admitted to the hospital. He was discharged on 10Apr2021 and was improving. It was reported that the reporter (patient's son) tested positive for COVID on 27Mar2021, so it was likely his parents were exposed or infected prior to their first dose of the vaccine. The reporter confirmed he has not been vaccinated. The patient was due to get the second shot today, but the reporter cancelled the appointment since his dad was still in quarantine. The reporter heard different things about when to get the second dose, everyone says to wait 90 days, they're getting mixed information, then he has heard 3 weeks is long enough to wait. The reporter wanted to know when his dad can get the second dose of the vaccine after having the COVID-19 infection. The patient is recovering from "he fell in the bathroom and passed out." Outcome of the event "tested positive for Covid" was unknown. This case involves a Product Complaint: Consumer reported that his father and mother tested positive for Covid infection on 07Apr2021 after receiving the first dose of the Pfizer COVID vaccine on 26Mar2021. It was not provided if a sample of the product was available to be returned, if requested and if packaging was sealed and intact.; Sender's Comments: Linked Report(s) : US-PFIZER INC-2021443810 same reporter, same drug, same event, different patient

This 80-year-old male patient received the second dose of BNT162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE, Lot Number: UNKNOWN) via unspecified route in Apr2021 (at the age of 79-years-old) as a single dose for the corona virus, to get rid of it/ it's supposed to be sure he didn't get it. Patient had no medical history. There was no relevant family medical history. There were no additional vaccines administered on same date of the COVID-vaccine. Patient had no adverse events following prior vaccinations. He remembers his first polio shot he got that back in the early 50's and his second shot was a cube of sugar, called the salt vaccine. Stated he's been getting vaccines for a long time and he never had any trouble with any of them. The patient previously received the initial dose of the BNT162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE) in 2021 (March or April) in the left arm which was deemed invalid by the vaccination provider due to temperature related issues (i.e wasn't cold enough). He explained he received a letter informing him of this incident and recommending a replacement dose (which he thinks was on 06Apr2021). About 2 to 3 weeks before he got his first COVID shot, he got a flu shot in his left arm, about 4 or 5 inches above where he got his COVID shot. The patient's concomitant medications were not specified. He reported that the second vaccine (BNT162b2) caused him problems. On 06May2021, he woke up with his right wrist twice as thick as his left one, it was swollen real bad. The right wrist was quite sore and painful. He didn't know if he was getting carpal tunnel or what it was, so he went to the ER about it and they gave him three different kinds of pills, two of which included tramadol 50mg one every day and ibuprofen 400 mg. The ER couldn't determine the cause for his reaction. About 3-4 days after taking the prescribed medication, his reaction subsided quite a bit and was not nearly as hurtful, but his left wrist then started swelling and being painful/sore. Therefore, he continued to take his medication and it improved. It was like that for a couple/ three days, and it calmed down. He thought he was okay 2-3 days ago, but this morning (14May2021), his right shoulder was swollen and pretty sore and was getting worse; he was in so much pain, so sore he could hardly even move his arm, he couldn't pick it up straight in the air, couldn't get his elbow up past his ear. The patient also reported that when he got off his bed, his left knee was sore and it felt like a fire underneath his kneecap and he was having trouble walking. The left knee was swollen real bad and was hotter than a firecracker. Thus, he went back to taking his pill again. The knee pain started the morning of 14May2021 about the same time it seemed and has worsened, and he took a 400mg ibuprofen and the other pill he's taking, "100 mg doxycycline or something". Patient hadn't been doing much since, he was feeling kind of laid up, he had thought it was all done with yesterday (13May2021). He stated he's been hearing things about allergic reactions to this COVID shot, was sure that a lot of people are having complaints of allergic reactions, and was sure he's not the only one who has had a problem like this. He asked if there was anything he can take to block it because he is sure when this calms down after a week or whatever, it will be his in his right knee or left shoulder or wrists or ankles and he's 100% it's about that COVID shot. He stated he's never had arthritis before. He stated that he has never had any problems like this before. He is supposed to go see his doctor in a week or two. He tried to call the doctor to make an appointment, but he figured he would wait a couple days, but he is hurting bad today (14May2021), and he hasn't been to anybody yet except for the ER. The patient stated it looks like the vaccine is methodically causing this spread into his body. He also reported that it feels warm outside of his left wrist, towards the edge of it and all the way to the joint of the little finger and he thinks the swelling will start again. He expressed feeling anxious about his reactions. He asked if there were any kinds of pills he could take to block the effects of the vaccine from working in his body. He stated it seems like it's going from one area to the next and it seems like it's going through his joints and he doesn't like that. His left wrist still got a little bit of soreness in the back near the joint, but doesn't appear to be swollen. Regarding the right wrist, he has recovered completely, it feels better; doesn't feel any soreness in any place and doesn't look swollen. The clinical outcome of right wrist twice as thick/left wrist started swelling recovered on unspecified date; left wrist painful/sore not recovered; right shoulder is so sore not recovered; left knee was sore not recovered; anxious was unknown; feels "warm" outside of his left wrist/ felt like a fire underneath his kneecap was unknown; left knee is swollen not recovered; arm was so sore unknown; carpal tunnel unknown; trouble walking unknown; right shoulder was swollen was not recovered.

Woke up the day after the vaccine was administered (2nd Dose) and legs were weak ("muscles felt like jelly"). The next day I developed aches in lower extremities.

He is sort of getting nausea when he tries to get up. He was also real depressed. It kind of started the next day after the vaccine (18May2021), but Wednesday she was concerned because the patient was crying a lot which is unusual for him. The nausea started today (25May2021). He hasn't been up and about. The dizziness is about the same. They called his primary caregiver who started him on some antidepressants. She picked up the information sheet that was given to them with the Covid vaccine and read there that dizziness was a side effect and a feeling of impending doom which is sort of how he was feeling. Now that's why she was wondering when the symptoms would be over. She doesn't really think he needs anything. He has never been depressed. She thinks now it is a side effect from the vaccine. She thinks the depression has improved. He is not crying anymore, but somebody is with him all the time. This was his first dose of the vaccine. He is supposed to go back on 07Jun2021 for his second. The outcome the event depression was recovering, event crying was recovered on an unspecified date and the other events was not recovered.

Patient is a 81 y.o. gentleman with a history of smoldering multiple myeloma, urinary retention for which he self catheterizes twice daily, as well as recently diagnosed atrial fibrillation that presents complaining of increasing weakness and falls. Patient fell 2/18 pm trying to get out of bed and he took about 20 minutes to get himself to a position where he could pull himself back up. Again 2/19 he was trying to get up and his legs were too weak to carry him and he fell to the ground. He needed assistance to get up and family asked him to come to emergency room for evaluation. He has been feeling poorly for about a month, with poor appetite and has lost about 15 pounds. He is not nauseated or short of breath and has no cough. He was apparently treated for UTI about 4 to 6 weeks ago after a visit to urgent care. He has since been to a different urgent care and was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation which was new in onset and was referred to a cardiologist who is planning to do a stress test in a few weeks. I believe he is on Eliquis now. In ER he was found to have significant pyuria and bacteriuria and was given a dose of Rocephin. Renal function shows worsening from levels in December although it is pretty stable over the past month from looking through other labs.

Patient received his 2nd dose of the Pfizer vaccine at on Monday, February 15. That evening, he experienced visual disturbances with slightly blurred vision. Not thinking anything of it at the time, the vision cleared, and he continued about their evening/week without telling anyone of his visual disturbances. On Sunday, February 21, he experienced additional visual disturbances including double vision and dizziness, and we had him visit a local ER for evaluation. He was discharged with a diagnosis of dehydration and vertigo. No scans were performed. The visual disturbances cleared up the following week and the only persistent symptom was a slight dizziness. An eye exam was performed on Friday, February 26 with no problems found. An MRI was performed on March 3, and he was diagnosed with the below conditions. Impression (3/3/2021) 1. Small acute to subacute infarcts in the left splenium of the corpus callosum and parasagittal left occipital lobe. 2. Trace subarachnoid hemorrhage in the parasagittal left parietal lobe. 3. Mild chronic microvascular ischemic disease. He was admitted to the hospital and remained there until Saturday, March 6. Follow-up scans and testing were performed with no underlying reason for the stroke being determined. Prior to the stroke, he had been a very active individual with osteoarthritis as is only health complaint. He was not on any prescription medication prior to the stroke. While in the hospital, the tests for high blood pressure, high cholesterol (LDL 92 MG/DL), sugar inadequacies (glucose 93 mg/dl, A1C 5.7%), etc. came back without major concerns. His follow-up CT scans also did not reveal the stroke shown on the MRI. No inquiry was made by any of his doctors or hospital staff as to his COVID vaccination status/dates to even consider the connection. Below are the results of the last CT scans: Impression (3/4/2021) 1. Age-related volume loss and white matter disease similar to prior exams. 2. Small infarct seen on MRI are not well seen on CT. 3. No acute intracranial abnormality demonstrated on the CT scan. Impression (3/5/2021) 1. No evidence of acute infarct or intracranial hemorrhage. No significant change. 2. Periventricular white matter disease is likely secondary to chronic small vessel ischemic changes.

The patient fell on 10Mar2021, 18Mar2021, 19Mar2021, 20Mar2021, 02May2021, and 02Jun2021. The patient lost the use of his legs completely. The patient was bedridden for 2 weeks. The patient had to get a hospital bed and lost a lot of his ability to get around. Prior to the vaccine, the patient was able to take a shower with an aid, walk to the truck and get in it, walk with a walker, walk 5 laps in his home with a walker per physical therapy, walk outside in the neighborhood for 30-40 minutes with his walker, could go to a restaurant and could sleep in a normal bed. After receiving the vaccine the patient's movements became slower the second and third day. The patient had one shower and sat down and couldn't get up so the aid had to take off her clothes and get him up and out. The patient was completely bedridden by day 6 and 7. The patient cannot enter their truck. They had to install a ramp from the kitchen into the garage for $2600. Since the patient couldn't get up, can't walk, and is bedridden he had to get a hospital bed. Medicare demands before you get a hospital bed and everything the doctor has to see the patient face to face. The patient didn't break anything, he has just lost the use of his legs. On 18Mar2021 they got the patient a hospital bed for $175 a month plus a $35 service fee. On 01Mar2021 a doctor came to the house and saw the patient and put it into Medicare. On 04Apr2021 a ramp was installed. The patient uses cab and a wheelchair at their expense. The filling fell out of the patient's tooth and he had to go to the dentist. They purchased a new bed mattress. They had to purchase an 18 inch wide wheelchair because the other one didn't fit in their house. Medicare is paying for physical therapy 2 days a week and they pay out of pocket $65 on Fridays. They pay an aid out of pocket 7 days a week. The caller called their regular doctor to see if he could get them a hospital bed. The caller didn't want to take the patient to the hospital because of COVID. The caller contacted the patient's ### for physical therapy and the doctor said he couldn't do it. The patient is now being seen at the ####. Since everyone is a #####, no one knows anything about this. The caller thinks the vaccine must hit the patient's nervous system. The patient's legs just give way. The patient can walk the length of the hospital bed to his lift chair. The patient had sores on his rear end and heels so they decided to put him back in his lift chair. The aids clean the patient in the morning then he eats, watches TV, the caller puts him in the lift chair where his feet are not touching anything. The patient's feet were healed last week (as reported). The patient has cuts on his left arm from his fall on 02Jun2021. The patient was so weak he had to start using a wheelchair instead of a walker, just of a couple days later. The caller will never have the patient get another shot because she doesn't want anything to happen to the patient. The patient is just quiet now and not sociable and stays quiet because of this. The patient has had blood work twice and a chest x-ray. The patient's blood pressure was always high. The patient was never admitted to the hospital as a patient for any of this. The outcome of events The patient lost the use of his legs completely, walking very very slow was not resolved, the outcome of events Fell, Loss of mobility was resolving. The outcome of other events was unknown.

This consumer (patient's wife) reported for an 84-year-old male patient (reporter's husband) who received 1st dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE; lot EW0158) on 10Apr2021 at right arm for COVID-19 immunization. Relevant medical history included ongoing high cholesterol diagnosed a long time ago when he was very heavy at one point he was quite heavier than he was. Now he was skin and bones, ongoing high blood pressure diagnosed 10 years ago or longer and ongoing diabetes diagnosed 10 years ago, ongoing pacemaker and ongoing irregular heart beat and falls. The patient previously had sore arms at site after receiving the flu shot for immunization. Ongoing concomitant drugs included Carvedilol for high blood pressure, atorvastatin calcium for high cholesterol, amiodarone (this is the medication that would cause an issue with the antibiotic if it was taken orally), acetylsalicylic acid (BABY ASPIRIN) to thin his blood, sitagliptin phosphate (JANUVIA) for diabetes, vitamin D3, cyanocobalamin (B12), ubidecarenone (CO Q10), sertraline (generic of an old drug called Zoloft) as something to calm him down. The patient was scheduled to get the second vaccine on 01May2021, however he was in the hospital and did not have his. They rescheduled the vaccine for this coming Saturday because he was still in the hospital. He was actually getting moved to a rehabilitation facility with intravenous antibiotics for a urinary tract infection and will not be able to get it. The patient was on an IV antibiotic which could not be administered orally do to the fact he has a pacemaker and irregular heart beat. The doctor told her that the oral medication would interrupt the spikes of the pace maker, his heart. The reporter was wondering if her husband can still have the COVID vaccine while taking the antibiotic. She asks will it interfere with that medication. Will he have to start all over again with number one of the vaccine because he missed the vaccine in the allotted time span. The last time the patient was weighed he was 155, but he has not been eating since he has been ill. He had so many problems since he has been ill, he has been falling a couple times. The reporter wanted to protect him from the terrible disease, but didn't want the injection into his body creating anymore problems than he already has. The doctor said that she thought the caller could take the patient out of the rehab facility for the day and get his vaccine and then bring him back. The facility said they would have to do research about that and get back to her. Caller states that her husband kept falling and had a fracture at the base of his spine, in addition to other problems, he has gout in one knee. She states that he would be standing up talking to her and the next thing she knew he was on the floor. She states that he has fell six times in a month. She states that she has become friends with the fire department because they came out so much. The falling occurred before he got the vaccine. She states he was fine when he went for the first vaccine and then the following week it started all over again, he couldn't walk. He had a physical therapist helping him strengthen his walking. She states that her husband says he fell and hurt his right knee while working with the physical therapist and the physical therapist said no, no, no, he didn't fall, he had a strap wrapped around him and the physical therapist caught him before he fell. Caller states that the physical therapist is 30 pounds lighter than her husband and doesn't know if he could of grabbed him before he hit the floor. She states that her husband was in a lot of pain and his knee swelled up, was very hot. She states that the doctor said it was inflamed. She states that she brought him back to hospital because they could not get him up and he could not walk. She couldn't pick him up, her son couldn't pick him up, her daughter couldn't pick him up and her son and daughter together finally got him up but he couldn't walk. She states that she called the emergency medical team. They said he has to go to the hospital and that was the last time he was at home. Has a walker and it takes a little while. She didn't know if he got the gout from that knee, but when they took out his fluid the following day you could of heard him screaming in the next county over. They were suppose to have the results but they didn't, they discharged him from the hospital. She states that he hasn't been able to come up with a breather of fresh air and feeling better. Caller states that he was now taking a gout medication at the hospital and that they told her that her husband had a second fracture to lower spine. The outcome of the events was unknown.

He started feeling woozy; Feels things in his workouts in his legs and feet, sometimes his back; He got a scratchy thing in his throat about 2 months ago; Exposed to Covid-19 after having vaccine; Caller states the second shot was really rough; This is a spontaneous report from a non-contactable consumer received from a Pfizer- sponsored program Pfizer RxPathways CEP 5570. A 84-year-old male patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE, Formulation: Solution for injection), via an unspecified route of administration on 17Feb2021 (at the age of 84-year-old) as a dose 2, single for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included cancer and had surgery, prostate surgery in Tombstone and caller stated he always has headaches. Concomitant medications were not reported. Historical vaccine included BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE, Formulation: Solution for injection), via an unspecified route of administration on 27Jan2021 (at the age of 84-year-old) as a dose 1, single for COVID-19 immunisation. It was reported that, He gave transfer agent some dates of the 2nd, the 17th and the 21st and then stated it was the wrong one. Those were the dates the transfer agent was given. Transfer agent stated that, the caller never told her which vaccine it was. The caller was transferred to the call handler at that time he was asked to confirm information. The caller was asked whether he was calling about the Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine when he referred to vaccine and he stated that, he has had both vaccines, he had them both way back. The caller stated that, the first was 27 21. Caller stated, it is the first month, call handler should not ask him that. The truth was, he cannot remember, was had been a while passed. Call handler asked for clarification of first month and caller does not provide. Call handler asked whether first month January and caller were stated that, it had to have been January or he does not know. The second was the 2nd, 17 27. The caller stated that was the second month, January and February. The call handler attempted clarification, but caller could not provide. He stated that, 27Jan2021 and 17Feb2021 he guesses means the second month and a first month, that was what was written on his card. No further clarification was provided. Dates remain unclear. The caller stated that, the second shot was really rough. It was a hard time before. The caller was asked for clarification and additional details were not provided. Caller stated that, he got the shot, he was skeptical about taking it but it was something he was taking. He was talking to a lot of different people and they were getting him to do what was important. The shots - the cold - nothing. He has never had to do that. He was really pretty to snuff other than at one point he got cancer and had surgery, prostate surgery, in Tombstone when he went through all that stuff. The caller did not provide additional details. Caller stated that, his problem was he saw his neighbor two weeks ago. He has not been talking to her a long time because she was over aggressive and pushy. He has tried to treat her kind but she was a drug addict and he was not interested in her or her lifestyle. He does her favors an cuts her grass. He was not interested in more than the process of doing this. Stated that, he had not talked to her in a long time and she stabbed him coming into the back of the house. She was stressed out and he thought she had a problem. He listened to this between him and her and at one point she got four or five feet from him and it was hot, like 90 something degrees. He was talking to her and he came back to her gate and then he started feeling woozy but maybe it was his head and heat. He could hardly get into the house. Since then, he was concerned about her because she said she had the virus and she worked at the hospital and she had the virus for 3 months and that was scary. The caller stated that, he always has headaches, he has always had them and that has nothing to do with this. The second shot gave him different types of things. Like, he had already had headaches so he could not say that was on the shot. Exposed to Covid-19 after having vaccine. Sometimes, he felt things in his workouts, in his legs and feet, sometimes his back. The caller did not clarified and stated that, he could not make a distinction between the workout and this particular thing. He workouts with 115 to 120 pounds every day and for a period of time it has happened over night. He has always done it, he started when 20 to 21 when it started. Stated that, he was not to the point he could not do what he had to do. He could walk and do all those things that has gotten better. He got a scratchy thing in his throat about 2 months ago. This occurred a long time after the vaccine. it was not so bad it was bothering him but he could still eat and do what he had to do. Still do normal things like his weights and stuff everyday. Something told him to get checked out and they told him to go back home because they could not believe he was so strong and he could hold 50 pounds. The caller was asked to clarify his question and events. Stated that, there was concern because he thought about what his neighbor said, that was 2 weeks ago he talked to her and he wanted to know what call handler thinks. The last two times he went to the hospital they said he did not have no Covid and sent him back home. Another day, they put him to another doctor. The caller stated that, he talked to call handler's office once before and she did not know the neighbor. He talked to and did checkups with Pfizer because he does not have knowledge and this was all new to him. The caller did not provide additional information. The caller stated that, not to stop and he was covered when he was talking to her. Caller clarified, he means that, he was wearing a mask and ever since he got the shot he was covered and the only time he was around people was the gas station or grocery store. He has no temperature and never did either. The caller was asked to clarify whether his question was regarding that, he had his Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine and then was exposed to his neighbor who had Covid-19 for three months. The caller stated as yes, he wanted to know what call handler thinks because call handler works there and deals with people like him all day. The caller then stated that, he will tell call handler what - maybe he should call his doctor and if that was better he would call, where he has been there a long time and they can check him because of his athletic things and age. Stated that, he started calling them before Pfizer but it was lunch time. The outcome of the events was unknown.

Heart stopped; Could not swallow; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable nurse (patient's wife). An 85-year-old male patient received the first dose of the bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 MRNA VACCINE), via an unspecified route of administration on 21Jan2021 at a single dose for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history included blood pressure abnormal (verbatim: blood pressure) from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing, neuropathy from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing, weight issue from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing, diabetes from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing, walker user from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing. Concomitant medications included insulin aspart (NOVOLOG) taken for diabetes from an unspecified date to an unspecified date; and he was taking a long acting one as well. The patient previously received the influenza vaccine (MANUFACTURER UNKNOWN) for immunization on unknown dates ("had flu shots before with no reactions and everything, nothing before"). On 24Jan2021, the patient's heart stopped (death, medically significant), and could not swallow (medically significant). The clinical course was reported as follows: The patient's wife stated the patient was taking insulin aspart (NOVOLOG) and he was taking a long acting one as well. The reporter, the patient's wife and a retired registered nurse (RN) stated, her husband (patient) just died and she thought he died from the COVID vaccine (later clarified the reason of death was-heart stopped). The patient had the vaccine on 21Jan2021, which was on a Thursday, and he was fine. On the following Sunday around 1:30 (on 24Jan2021), the patient was feeling a little weak, however, the patient's wife thought maybe his blood sugar was low. The patient's wife checked, and the patient's blood sugar was 91. The patient's wife went to get some yogurt to feed him in order to get his blood sugar up a little; "which was a normal thing for him, it was not that low for him." Then, suddenly, the patient fell, and the patient's wife could not get a pulse or anything. The patient's wife called an unspecified number and she started compressions; however, he was dead. The patient's wife stated the patient just had his heart test, a three hour long one, and it was "perfect three weeks ago." The patient had just gone to the doctor the other day and his blood pressure was "fine and everything." The patient's wife stated that other than his diabetes, "which he had for (sentence incomplete)." Regarding lab tests, the patient's wife stated, "No, he had it before but not in the last two weeks. He was going for one because we just went to the doctor last week and he was going to call yesterday to make the appointment request to get his blood work done. Blood work has been good except his A1C was always high, but other than that everything was good" (as reported). Regarding causality, the patient's wife stated, "I do, because he was fine until about half an hour before he died. He said to me, I feel a little weak today and then I was talking to him that your upper body strength is really good and then I said, we just have to work on your weight a little more because he did have neuropathy. And then, I went out of the room and all of a sudden I just heard him fall and that is when I just went in to check his blood sugar and it was 91 and I got him yogurt and he started eating that and then that was it, he started spitting it out and he said, I could not swallow and that was it, he just died." The patient's wife further added, "I just wanted other people to know that things like this happen and I am sure it was from that because he was healthy as could be. He was walking with his walker, the day before outside and he felt fine." The clinical outcome of the event, heart stopped, was fatal. The clinical outcome of the event, could not swallow, was unknown. The patient died on 24Jan2021 due to "heart stopped." An autopsy was not performed. The batch/lot numbers for the vaccine, PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 MRNA VACCINE, were not provided and will be requested during follow up.; Reported Cause(s) of Death: Heart stopped

bent over to look up and almost blacked out; swimmy headedness was really more noticeable after second shot; sensation in equilibrium or vision or whatever; weakness; felt different/really knew something was wrong/something is not right; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). An 85-year-old male patient received the second dose of bnt162b2, via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Left arm on 09Feb2021 (Lot Number: EM9810) as single dose for covid-19 immunisation. The patient medical history and concomitant medications were not reported. The patient previously received the first dose of bnt162b2, at the age of 85-year-old, via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Left arm on 20Jan2021 (lot number: EL3302) as single dose for covid-19 immunization and experienced Vertigo, felt peculiar, nausea, dizziness/swimmy headed. The patient previously received the flu shot for immunization and experienced Sore arm. He is 85 and not familiar with all the goings on today but heard a report the other day and did not know there was such a thing as Vertigo. He thought that was just a movie. When he took the shot at (place name) in (county name) on 20Jan2021, soon thereafter, not that day but maybe next, he felt peculiar. It was just uneasiness and he did not feel right. That went on and on 09Feb2021, he got second shot and he got swimmy headed, but it has continued on since then and probably gotten worse, especially when he gets up in the morning. He has to hold on until he gets balanced or coordinated. It just doesn't seem right After he gets up and gets going, it is not as prevalent. But then sometimes it strikes him and he is just completely out of it. He later stated the peculiar feeling and swimmy headedness started the same day as the first injection, but he just did not really pay attention to it and thought it was just one of those things that you accept with getting older. Wife and he both went and he thought his feelings were merely from excitement or depletion or exhaustion. He felt like he had weakness and he just felt different. He got it at noon and waited for 15 minutes. Because of the events around him at the time, it did not register with him because it was the stress of driving 30 miles through expressway. Old people aren't used to driving that far. It got worse after the second shot and then he really knew something was wrong. When you are old, you have these feelings and pains and aches and all that stuff, and you just accept it as being old. It did not register with him until a couple of weeks ago when he heard it on TV about Vertigo and he said that is what he has. The swimmy headedness was really more noticeable after second shot, it brought it on stronger. He does not complain about things and thought it may just be getting old. He said it just kept on and getting a little worse and worse. Then he said something is not right and one day he bent over to look up and almost blacked out because of sensation in equilibrium or vision or whatever. He got scared and that was a couple of weeks ago. (name) was not cognizant of what was going on until he heard on television about Vertigo. One of the news channel mentioned or somebody mentioned it. It was just general things. He confirmed it was regarding someone who had gotten Vertigo after getting the vaccine but did not have a particular person to report on. NO ER or physician's office required. The outcome of the event dizziness aggravated and Weakness was not recovered, other events was unknown.

Vaccine was administered on 1/12/21 at Memory Care. On 1/15/21 at 12:30 he developed slurred speech at his facility and slumped to his left side. Out of concern for stroke he was sent by ambulance to Hospital. There he was found to have no evidence of stroke on MRI or CT angiogram. He was admitted to the hospital due to fever and elevated inflammatory markers (ferritin, CRP) and transaminases. He was found to have a positive SARS-CoV-2 PCR and IgG. His symptoms resolved the following morning and may have represented a TIA. He had many markers consistent with COVID-19 and his CT pulmonary angiogram did show ground glass opacities but no pulmonary embolism. It was difficult to assess if this was a reinfection with COVID-19, persistent PCR positivity from November, or an adverse event to the vaccine.

In case indeed of indication of adverse effect of covid. The patient advised that a warning should be on leaf. At least people have sugar tablets or some form of counteracting low blood sugar especially since these are 5-7 have driven to and he was just very thankful but he had to get the shot in (city).

It was reported that he has both Diabetes and Hypertension but doctor was absent because he has Diabetes for about 25 years and when my aunt told them that she thought that it was related to the vaccines then they just said they have no idea. They just said they had no idea they wished what they knew what was wrong with him, because everything was normal with exception of elevated blood pressure, elevated sugar and elevated potassium. At the time of reporting, he weighed about 139 pounds. Since he has been out of hospital, he has lost about 25 pounds. Reporter stated that, she has to pay out of her pocket for his rehab because they did not know what was wrong with him and her insurance only cover certain amount of days and she was trying to figure out how she can get some assistance in paying for that rehab visit because they paid certain number of days and then she ready to go but he was not ready to come home so she had to pay out of her pocket to keep him there and also trying to see if that is something that pfizer would reimburse for. Reporter stated that, her insurance would not cover all the kind of aiding there and then they sent him home and then he had to back to his status because nurse said he should not be home he is too fragile and that was dangerous for him to keep him in the hospital, if he falls, he falls. She was asking if can either reimburse my aunt for the extra days that insurance did not cover, she had to pay out of her pocket for those because insurance did not cover everything and the doctors, nobody know what is wrong, they just says I wish I knew what was wrong, they can see that he was weak, they can see that he can not walk, he can not feed himself, so he can not be home and yet none of this happened if he did not have these vaccine. Upon follow up, reporter stated that, all events were reported yesterday, first was an ER visit, the doctor said they had no explanation, what was causing this, the weakness, he used to drive, he did daily walks, was active, it all started after the first injection, but at the time, no one knew to look for fatigue, they looked for flu like things and he fell a couple times, but he got the second shot, he got worse, and he went to ER because he fell and cracked his head on wall and cut it open, so he was taken to ER and admitted. Reporter did not know why the lady last night gave her a number that was not valid. Outcome of events was unknown. Follow-up attempts are completed. No further information is expected.

Upon leaving the site my husband had great difficulty walking. Upon arrival home he seemed unusually confused and over the course of the next 15 hrs had bouts of incontinence.

The weeks following vaccination, the patient felt lethargic, dizzy, unstable on his feet. Mental cognitive ability was unchanged, and he seemed to still be sharp. Up until the day of death, the patient was still active, able to drive, speak, make jokes, eat, and do everything normally. The morning of death, he had a bad fall, but couldn't recall what happened. It's assumed that a low blood pressure event, syncope, partial aneurysm, something of that nature causing temporary loss of consciousness occurred. We attended a funeral that afternoon, ate lunch, and dropped him off at his home. Sometime during that evening, he fell and died. The cause is unknown and still "undetermined" on the death certificate. (Heart attack or brain aneurysm is what I'm guessing)

My father was given his second dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Feb. 13, 2021. He went downhill the following week. He fell 9 times and was very confused. He was taken to the hospital on Feb. 20 and admitted that day. He spent a week there. His condition continued to deteriorate. He was totally bedridden for a week. His mental status deteriorated. By Feb. 22, he was unable to talk, he drooled, and had to be fed. He made slow improvement later in the week. We were never given any reason for his condition. There was no infection, no stroke, etc. He was discharged and sent to rehab on Feb. 27. He remained there until April 8. He is currently doing fairly well. He uses a walker and gait belt in the house and is receiving home therapy. He is not as independent as he was before. His short term memory seems to be more impaired than it was previously.

On Sunday afternoon, March 14, I received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccination. On the morning of March 16 I had a sudden hit of fatigued and my left leg started going numb while doing some menial work in the yard, The numbness cleared when I went inside and laid down but some form of the fatigue persisted for several days. Then, on March 28, two weeks after the vaccine, I woke up to a leg severely swollen from toe to hip. I waited two days to see if it went down but it only got worse, swelling to double the size by volume. I went to the doctor and they sent me to the hospital for ultrasound, suspecting a blood clot. No blood clot was evident but there were multi swollen limp nodes in the upper leg area. The problem worsened and two days later I was sent in for a CTscan which now showed multi blood clots near the swollen limp nodes. I was barely able to walk as major pain persisted with no signs of decline. I am now on blood thinner. It has been 2 months since the vacination and my leg is still swollen the same amount (2X by volume).

The patient previously took flu shot (INFLUENZA VACCINE), a couple of months ago. He mentions he was in the military so he had a lots of shots in his life but he has never had a reaction like this. The patient stated that on 30Dec2020 10:30, "he became extremely lightheaded, like he was about to fall down. He sat down and is currently sitting down. This lightheadedness started about 20 minutes after the injection. When probed for the outcome, the caller explains it might be improving a little. The lightheadedness is not still not gone, but it has not worsened. When probed for seriousness criteria, the caller explains he is just resting and sitting. He would say its not serious but it could be medically significant. He states he isn't sure if this is something that happens to just people who have had COVID before. He states none of his friends or relatives have this type of reaction. He lives in a retirement home and everybody is getting the injection. This is the second day of injections. He doesn't know if anybody had a reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine here".
