Patient in clinic for chief complaint of possible side effect of the covid vaccine which she received yesterday. She states that she woke up at 0200 with chest tightness, achyness and headache. She rates the discomfort 7/10 last night and improved now to 5/10. She denies any worsening with any type of exertion and states that she can do simple things like take a shower, walk across the room, down the street or even stairs without any worsening. She denies any SOB or chest pain--just feels tight. Doesn't feel like she can't get a full breath or get the air out of her lungs either. She received her first of two doses of the Pfizer vaccine yesterday (4:23pm) and had no difficulty with the injection itself and then 9.5 hours later woke up from sleep with this chest tightness as well as achyness and headache.  She states that she had the exact same symptoms when she had positive covid test back in August of this year with the addition of fatigue which lasted for 5 days. At that time it was not felt necessary to do any further testing nor treat with steroids according to cardiology. She does have history of LV non-compaction cardiomyopathy and her last visit with cardiology was about 2 years ago and she had a normal EKG and echo only showed "mild LV non compaction at the apex" at that time. He did not need to see her again until she is 18 unless she has problems. She states that she generally does very well and other than this tightness she does not have any other significant symptoms.

My 16-year-old daughter, very healthy without any health conditions, got her first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Saturday evening, April 10th, at around 5pm. On Wednesday, she started complaining of shortness of breath, chest pains, which she described as a feeling of someone stubbing her heart. By Thursday, she began blacking out repeatedly throughout the day, each blackout lasting about a minute. These progressed and whenever she blacked out, she would not remember what happened. At first, she and I brushed it off as maybe lack of calcium since she rarely drinks milk. But as they intensified, I began to become more concerned. I told her I cannot leave her by herself in the house as I prepared to go pick up her young siblings from school then schedule an appointment with her doctor. On our way back home, she blacked out again, however, it was for more than a minute. Straight away, I drove to the ER close by. The doctor came back to inform me that her heartbeat was irregular and concerning based on her age. In that same moment, she began complaining of excessive pain like someone punching her heart out, and then she passed out again. Still with my two other children, the whole ordeal began to frighten them and illicit some heavy tears. Being that this ER was general admission, the doctors insisted they call in the paramedics to transport her to another ER for children. However, after being transported to the other ER, her condition began to intensify rather quickly and the pediatric doctor at the second ER informed us we would have to be transferred to Childrens intensive care unit where the cardiologists could check her heart, find the ultimate cause, and monitor her closely. In that moment, as a mother, I was speechless and extremely terrified. Seeing my daughter being transferred from ER to ER, made it even tougher on me so much that I could no longer hold myself together. Here she was in terrible pain and being moved around with no clear diagnosis and treatment. From there on, we spent a couple days in the Cardiac ICU waiting and praying with friends for answers and the best treatment she could get to ease the pain. By about the third day of being in the ICU, the cardiologists informed me, she had Acute Myocarditis. This was so shocking in a sense that both sides of the family have no history of heart issues. Secondly, she is a very healthy child.

is a 16-year-old female patient admitted with tachycardia. Starting 1-1/2 weeks ago, mom notes that she has had episodes where she feels her heart racing. It began 1-1/2 weeks ago with her crying and her watch that her heart rate was 208. They went to the ED, where she was given some fluids and her heart rate improved so she was sent home. She had had prior episodes of mild tachycardia up to the 140s in the past but which has always improved with fluids. Mom states that she used to have a lot of trouble maintaining her hydration and would not drink a lot of water. Since the last 1-1/2 weeks, she has been having these episodes 1-2 times a day that last about 1 to 2 minutes with a max of 5 minutes. When it comes on, she feels dizzy and lightheaded, and after the episode she feels a big rush of blood to her head. She also has some associated shortness of breath. She denies having any episodes of chest pain at all. She has never passed out, she has never felt like she was going to pass out, she has never felt like she was out of balance. She denies any nausea or vomiting during episodes. She denies any headaches during the episodes. She does have history of migraines, but has not had one in the last couple weeks. Her prior resting heart rate was in the 80s per her watch, and lately it has been in the 110s to 120s while awake in 80s while asleep. Along with the episodes, she also feels some pulsating sensation in her abdomen. She does not have any abdominal pain. Today, her heart rate was again in the 200s, but it was worse than before because it lasted about 30 minutes total. Lately they have been using an app that continuously monitors her heart rate. Since these episodes started, she has cut down on her caffeine intake and she has increased her water intake. Does not feel that this helped. She has never had syncope in the past and has never had seizures in the past. Patient was started on carvedilol which has helped control heart rate and was encouraged to drink fluids. Per primary care team, her current episode of tachycardia was not due to the vaccine.

The patient was previously well then shortly after the first COVID vaccine she began experiencing fatigue slowing to her swim times ( she is an high level swimmer) and felt "Off". She presented to my office on May 6, 2021 three days after her second COVID vaccine I examined her and heard a slight hint of a wheeze and in addition to labs did a CXR which was Abnormal with evidence of a LLL consolidation and a pleural effusion. We then did a CT scan with contrast and started her on antibiotics and I called Pulmonology to get her in quickly since swimming trials were approaching and we had to do our best to get her in shape to compete. We also did a rapid COVID test which was negative at my office on May 7, 2021-- The pediatric pulmonologist repeated the CXR 5 days later and there was more fluid and she was now having more sx of cough and feeling worse so she was Admitted to the Hospital on May 11th and had a Chest tube placed and drained 950 cc of serous fluid . Pulmonology, oncology and rheumatology consulted to rule out various other causes of the pleural fluid in an otherwise healthy girl. Surgery did the procedure and followed up outpt. She was in the hospital for approximately 4 days. Proximity of sx onset to doses and other sources being essentially ruled out lead to concern for vaccine complication.

Patient admitted with myocarditis s/p dose #2 of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. At the time of the report, she is still hospitalized. From EHR note: Patient was in her usual state of health when she received her second dose of the Pfizer mRNA Covid vaccine on 6/3. She experienced mild myalgias in the day following the vaccine. However, on 6/5 she developed new severe substernal chest pain, dizziness, and dyspnea. Pain radiated to her throat. Given severity of pain, she presented to the emergency department. In the ED she was afebrile, tachycardic, and initially hypertensive. Labs demonstrated WBC 10.9 (N 49, L 27), Hb 11.7, PLT 315. ESR 25, CRP 7.61. Troponin T was mildly elevated at 0.08, consistent with mild cardiac inflammation. SARS-CoV-2 PCR and antibody testing were negative. An EKG was normal. However, an echo demonstrated low-normal LVEF (55%). Otherwise, patient denies nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, cough, runny nose, conjunctivitis, new rashes, arthralgias. Patient was admitted to the cardiology service for further monitoring. Following admission, she was started on ibuprofen. She notes that her substernal chest pain has improved somewhat since admission. Differential for patient's presentation includes infectious, post-infectious, and non-infectious causes of myocarditis. Although post-vaccination mild myocarditis seems likely, we agree with the infectious workup already undertaken, and recommend additional EBV and CMV PCR testing.

A 16-years-old female patient received second dose of bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE, Solution for injection, Batch/Lot number was not reported), via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm Left on 21Mar2021 as single dose for covid-19 immunization. Patient received first dose of bnt162b2 on unknown date in 2021, 3 weeks before the second dose for covid-19 immunization. Medical history included asthma (Diagnosed when she was 5 years old), allergies (Pollen, dust, walnuts, coconut, diagnosed when she was 3 years old) and migraine from Sep2019. Concomitant medications included Amitriptyline 25 mg for migraine, Macrogol 3350 (MIRALAX) daily for constipation and salbutamol sulfate (VENTOLIN HFA) asthma pump taken as needed for asthma which patient had not used this for a while before the vaccine. The patient received the second dose and then 5 days later she had to be taken to the emergency room. The patient was only 16 years old but was able to be vaccinated because she had asthma, so she is high risk. In Mar2021, 5 days after the second dose, the patient had horrible pain in her chest, lungs, and ribs. On 26Mar2021 or 27Mar2021 the patient woke up with this pain, then that night it hurt when the patient breathed or talked. The patient was taken to the emergency room at that time and was diagnosed with costochondritis, the patient was not ever admitted to the hospital. The patient was given ibuprofen 600 mg prescribed but it didn't help. Unknown lot, NDC, and expiration date for the Ibuprofen. The pain was still there so the patient was given naproxen and she has been taking that for almost 2 months now. Sometimes the pain gets better but sometimes it gets worse. Unknown lot, NDC, and expiration date for the Naproxen. The first 4 weeks the patient had to lay down because she couldn't sit or stand for more than 15 minutes because of the pain. The patient was fine and then 5 days after the second dose she got the pain, and it doesn't go away. The pain is under the breast like 4 fingers under it and in the middle near the sternum. The pain hurts more when the patient moves and changes positions. It was reported that "Two days ago, the pain was a 2 out of 10, but randomly it goes to 5,6, or 7. Today the pain is a 4 out of 10". The caller said this event was ongoing and persisting. When the patient went to the emergency room on 26Mar2021 or 27Mar2021 they checked her for inflammation and rheumatoid arthritis, but it was negative. The patient's blood work was normal, the chest x-rays were normal too. The patient also went to the emergency room on 05May2021 and was not admitted. The care team checked the patient again and they said it was myalgia or something. The patient was not resolved from the events. The causality assessment with suspect vaccine reported as Related to the events pain in her chest, lungs, and ribs. Follow up attempts are needed. Further information has been requested.; Sender's Comments: Based on a positive temporal association, a possible contributory role of the suspect BNT162B2 cannot be excluded for the reported Pulmonary pain, Costochondritis and Myalgia.

Patient not seen in office. History obtained via phone from father of patient and patient herself. Very early on 4/19/2021, 8hrs after receiving her 2nd Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination, patient began developing nausea, chills, sweating, fever and malaise. Highest fever was 102.3', with symptoms treated with Advil 600mg. Had x1 episode of vomiting that day, none since. The next day 4/20, patient woke up with new-onset lip swelling, progressing to periorbital swelling and swelling of her facial cheeks & rash. She then began having a cough with some throat tightness with some mild discomfort with breathing in her throat, but no chest tightness or wheezing. Tongue not swollen per patient. Benadryl 25mg PO given multiple times and patient used her Albuterol MDI a few times as well, which helped. She continued to have fevers to 101' throughout the day, treated with Advil again. At night, patient then developed semi-itchy red "hives" on her legs. Per patient, she didn't feel she needed to go to ER for her symptoms or throat tightness/breathing issue. She was still drinking & urinating well and had been consuming light solids foods. The same day 4/20 in the afternoon, patient was prescribed over the phone Prednisone 60mg PO x1 which she first took after 5pm, with tapering dose over the next 4 days, in addition to increasing Benadryl to 50mg PO and starting Qvar 80 MDI BID, while using Albuterol prn. Via phone call to father this morning 4/21, patient reportedly slept well last night and woke up this morning with significantly less symptoms. No longer having throat tightness/breathing issues, with much less periorbital/facial swelling. Still fatigued but no longer having fevers, either.

At 2am 4/22 patient started to feel sick and sent a text that I didn't read until 630 as I was asleep. She had severe muscle aches, hurt to move, hurt to breathe and felt like she was having a heart attack. She felt like she might pass out and had some blurred vision. At 630am, I saw her texts and immediately brought her 2 tylenol and a large glass of water. She went back to bed. She woke up around 10:45 and was feeling decent except for a headache but no fever or anything so we went to try on some Prom dresses. At the dress shop, she collapsed and had a seizure lasting around a minute. She lost her bladder and was completely confused and incoherent. She's never had a seizure before. I scooped her up, brought her to the ER where they ran every test and scan imagineable. Full blood work up and cultures, a chest xray, a CT scan of her brain and lungs. Her temp was high 103-104 and she had full body chills and a pounding headache. Her BP kept dropping and got as low as 81/36. They threw 2 bags of IV fluids into her and admitted her to the hospital. She had also developed a heart murmur. Over the course of the night, her BP stabilized but her temp continued to spike and come back down with Tylenol/Ibuprofen. She also had IV Tordahl for the headache. Her inflammatory markers were high at 15.3 which we were told should be less than 1. They reran labs in the morning but everything can back really low which they felt was a dilution effect from all the fluids so wanted us to follow up with her primary care on Monday. On Saturday night, he lymph nodes were swollen to the size of ping pong balls but have since slowly reduced in size although still there. Her labs were better from discharge and her white blood cell count was within range and her inflammatory marker was down to 1.7. Her blood sugar was a little low. She did pass out and have seizure like response to giving blood in the doctors office, lost bladder control again, shot pupils, etc. She is still stuttering over words, has some short term memory retention and has some motor function issues which they think is a result of the initial seizure and should resolve itself over time. Her liver function tests were totally normal in the hospital but are a high now so they will be checking her out again next week.

Recipient is a 17yo who presented for second dose of COVID-19 vaccine. She reported some anxiety related to receiving dose #2, and had some nausea after dose #1. She was alone as a driver of her own POV. Consent was obtained from the recipient and her custodial grandparent by phone, witnessed by doctor. She initially did well after the vaccine, but after approximately 5 minutes began to complain of feeling nauseated, lightheaded, and tingling extremities (hands and feet). She was noted to be hyperventilating, and was placed in a supine position but continued to feel some lightheadedness and difficulty breathing. Breath sounds were clear without wheezing noted, HR 70s with RRR. She was noted to have ongoing anxiety, nausea and symptoms progressed and although she remained normotensive to hypertensive (initial BP 128/74), she had repeated episodes of syncope. She was transferred to the ambulance and further vitals and EKG were obtained. She had some confusion after episodes of syncope and some seizure-like activity with syncope, with very brief episodes of LOC, with noted tachycardia with HR up to the 140s during episodes of syncope. BP ranged 129/86 to 140/84. IV access obtained and she was given NS and started on oxygen at 2 liters, but saturations remained in the 98-99% range. She was ultimately transferred to the local ER for further evaluation and management given ongoing symptoms, evaluated at hospital.

Chest Pains Shortness of Breath Costochondritis - Per the Doctor These conditions were present after the first vaccine shot on April 6th and then again after the second shot on April 27th. Doctor initially thought it could be a simple case of Acid Reflux and gave her Nexium. Once that didn't work, she had her Chest X Ray done that came back all clear. She then had her blood tests done and that too came all clear except for Vitamin D3 that came in at 15 so doctor gave her a 50,000 unit Vitamin D3 dose. That also didn't do much to relieve the chest pains and shortness of breath so he had her EKG and Echo done and those were all clear as well. Finally, he gave her a day steroid course of Prednisone at 40 mg/day which is where she is currently. It is helping her a bit but she is still complaining of original two issues - chest pain and shortness of breath. She is also doing cold and warm compressions throughout the day that helps her temporarily.

Patient told us that she has passed out and vomited after receiving vaccines in the past. After getting the vaccine, she didn't feel well. We monitored her in the vaccine room for about 5 minutes. She had a drink of water, then when she was ready, her family helped her into the lobby I returned to the pharmacy, and continued to watch her. The patient's mom came to the window and said patient had fainted. I went to her, and said we need to lower her to the floor. At that point, mom said patient was not breathing I quickly lowered her to the floor, while dad supported her head. I didn't have time to verify that she wasn't breathing, because as soon as she touched the floor, she began convulsing, then sat up and w was immediately awake. She sat up, and we explained that she had passed out and I had her lie down. I stayed with her for a few minutes, asking if they wanted an ambulance (which mom and dad declined) while making sure she was ok. She was just resting at this point, so I returned to the pharmacy, and ask them to let me know if anything changed I continued to watch her from the pharmacy window, and the patient said she was nauseated. We gave mom a bag, and patient vomited in the bag. After a couple more minutes, she seemed to be recovering, and mom and dad helped her out of the store. I followed up with mom at 4:15pm, and mom said patient was still nauseated and had vomited a couple more times. I followed up one last time at 4:45pm, and patient was feeling a bit better, but mom was going to keep an eye on her I recommended that mom take her to a doctor to be evaluated, but mom said she would just keep an eye on her through the night. I told mom that I would follow up again in the morning.

Pt.initially had acute onset left arm pain with left sided chest pain worsened with deep breathing with nausea and vomiting. She gave herself her stress dose hydrocortisone, but when she did not improve she presented to the ED on 4/25/2021. EKG was performed and was normal. She was discharged with ad vice to rotate tylenol and ibuprofen and to stress dose her hydrocortisone. She, however, continued to be very symptomatic and developed tachycardia and symptoms of orthostasis. Large workup was done to assess the status of her endocrine diseases and to assess for onset of new autoimmune endocrine conditions. Laboratory evaluation was normal. troponin testing was not sent. She was referred to her primary pediatrician for further evaluation. Her pediatrician did a full evaluation and could find no cause for her symptoms. Arm pain gradually resolved but palpitations, mild sinus arrhythmia with tachycardia and symptoms of orthostasis continued. She tolerated wean of her hydrocortisone poorly and required large doses and slow weaning. Symptoms were still present and bothersome on 5/17/21 but had slightly improved, although she remained unable to attend full days of school (she is an excellent student). Case was discussed with infectious disease, who recommended delaying the second COVID vaccination, so this was done. Eventual working diagnosis was marked vasomotor instability of unclear origin, likely post inflammatory, concern for triggered by COVID vaccination. cardiology referral was placed. She was seen by cardiology 7/6/2021. EKG showed sinus arrhythmia and borderline right axis deviation, unchanged from ED presentation 4/25/2021. echocardiogram revealed only previous PDA closure. Cardiology placed event monitor and noted low suspicion for myocarditis, but consideration of cardiac MRI in future if no improvement.

Approximately 3 minutes after injection, pt. reported that her vision had gone black, her ears were ringing, and she felt faint. I notified the nurse immediately. Within another minute her breathing became rapid and faint. She was given water and coached to breath slowly and deeply. The nurse checked her blood pressure with a result of 67/22. A second BP check resulted in 70/27. The nurses transferred her to the ER. In the ER, a third BP check 20 minutes after injection resulted in a normal reading of approximately 110/70. She continued to take oral fluids for approximately one hour before being released. The medical staff reported to us that this is a completely normal reaction for many people to all vaccinations, and suggested that she should get the second dose of Pfizer vaccine in 3-4 weeks. However, when we check the CDC website we find that these are anaphylactic symptoms and should not get the 2nd dose of Pfizer, so we are greatly concerned and decided to report the event.

Patient slumped into chair in the observation area. I rushed to her. She was hyperventilating, but not wheezing or making any high pitched sound while breathing. Patient was conscious, and could answer my questions coherently. Patient was told to take off her mask so she can breath more easily. Patient kept saying "I'm sorry" and was told there's nothing to feel sorry for, and we wanted to make sure she was fine. Pulse was slightly elevated. Hands were warm and sweaty. Patient asked for a bottle of water. After drinking some water she felt better. It was likely a panic attack episode. I checked on her five minutes later. She just finished talking on the phone with a family or friend. She was a lot better at this point. She agreed that that was likely a panic attack.

I started having vaginal bleeding on April 14th. The first day, it was the same amount as a regular period. In the days following, the bleeding became very heavy, having me go through a super-sized tampon with a pad every 1 and a half to two hours along with several large blood clots each time changing. On the 15th, I called the on-call nurse for my gynocologist and she said that it might have been from the vaccine and taking birth control, since many patients of hers had called with the same problem. The bleeding continued at this rate all the way until my second dose on April 29th. I saw my primary doctor that day and she tested my hemoglobin, which came up at 10.7, which was slightly anemic. She prescribed an Iron supplement and told me to skip my "period" days and go straight to my next pack of birth control when the one I was using was finished. The next day, I experienced severe nausea, diarrhea, chills, fever-like symptoms, difficulty breathing, and extreme fatigue. I went to the Emergency Room, and they gave me about an IV and a half. They said I had extreme dehydration, and was slightly more anemic than when tested the day before. Following that day, the bleeding was significantly lighter and then stopped for a few days on the following Thursday when I started my new pack of birth control. I had little to no blood for.a couple days, followed by bloody discharge up until Tuesday night, the 11th of May, when the bleeding started again, being about the same amount as a regular period. I am still currently bleeding at this rate.

hypokalemia (2.9 mmol/L); hypocalcemia (6.4 mg/dL); puffy eyes; respiratory symptoms; possibly stridor; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable physician. A 19-year-old female patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, solution for injection), dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration on 19May2021 (Batch/Lot number was not reported) as 1ST DOSE, SINGLE DOSE for covid-19 immunisation. Medical history included food allergy, anaphylactic reaction. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported. The patient woke up the next morning on 20May2021 with puffy eyes and respiratory symptoms (possibly stridor) and self-administered epinephrine, then was taken to the nearest ED where she received additional epi and albuterol. Those symptoms eventually subsided, but what triggered the study stop was her lab findings consisting of hypokalemia (2.9 mmol/L) and hypocalcemia (6.4 mg/dL). In the AE grading scale that the study is using (the FDA's scale used in vaccination studies), these values are considered Grade 4 As such, we met the study stopping rule of a single Grade 4 event and since they were detected one day after vaccination, the site PI indicated that they could be "possibly related" to the vaccine. These abnormalities were promptly corrected and the participant is doing OK, based on the most recent update. There is no report that the reporter could identify that these electrolyte abnormalities are vaccine related and I am contacting you to confirm that this is, indeed, the case. We believe other explanations should be considered (e.g. epinephrine plus beta agonist administration can lead to both hypokalemia and hypocalcemia through beta2 effects; alternatively, or in addition, hyperventilation could result in respiratory alkalosis that has similar effects). The patient underwent lab tests and procedures which included blood calcium: 6.4 mg/dl on an unspecified date Hypocalcemia , blood potassium: 2.9 mmol/l on an unspecified date Hypokalemia. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of puffy eyes, respiratory symptoms, possibly stridor. The outcome of the events was unknown. Information regarding lot/batch number has been requested.; Sender's Comments: Based on the available information and known product profile, the causal relationship between the reported puffy eyes and respiratory symptoms (possibly stridor) and the use of bnt162b2 is possible. Considering that these events likely occurred under the context of an allergic reaction based on the temporal association and the positive response to epinephrine and albuterol. The patient also has a history of food allergy, anaphylactic reaction which place the patient at risk. As for the events , hypokalemia and hypocalcemia, agree with the reporter that the use of the beta 2 agonist , as well as the respiratory alkalosis explain the occurrence of these events. The impact of this report on the benefit/risk profile of the Pfizer product is evaluated as part of Pfizer procedures for safety evaluation, including the review and analysis of aggregate data for adverse events. Any safety concern identified as part of this review, as well as any appropriate action in response, will be promptly notified to regulatory authorities, Ethics Committees, and Investigators, as appropriate.

Patient said that historically has experienced tachycardia and shakiness after getting a flu shot or booster a few years ago. Symptoms reported by patient were enough to suspect potential anaphylaxis, and patient consented pharmacist to administer epinephrine. Patient was then advised by the pharmacist to follow-up with her primary care doctor as soon as possible to report the incident and to discuss the risk versus benefit of the vaccine, whether recieving the second dose would be appropriate for her. Patient returned to assisted living facility for her second dose of the COVID19 Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on 2/26/2021. Patient said that she discussed the incident with her doctor, was told it would be appropriate to get the second dose despite her reaction and was advised to take "cautious measures". Pharmacist reviewed the patient information and screening questions, discussed the potential side effects and reiterated her risk of experiencing the same reaction with the second dose. Patient stated that she decided on getting the second dose because "her boyfriend is high risk and I'm doing this for him". Patient stated that she decided on getting the second dose because "her boyfriend is high risk and I'm doing this for him". Pharmacist asked patient if she had any questions/concerns or additional information to add prior to getting her vaccine, and patient denied having any at that time. After administering her second dose, pharmacist instructed patient to stay in the observation area for at least 30 minutes and to ask the staff for water given her experience with the first dose. Patient asked pharmacist how common it was for someone to get a reaction from the vaccine, and then mentioned that her family memeber had to drive her to the emergency room after her first dose becuase her throat was "burning", and was told that her throat was "a little swollen" and recieved a second dose of epinephrine at the emergency room. Patient included this information after the fact her second dose was already administered. Approximately 5 minutes after receving her vaccine, the patient reported similar symptoms that she experienced on 2/5/2021: tachycardia, vision changes, shortness of breath and chest tightness. After monitoring patient with no resolvement of her symptoms, patient was then given a dose of epinephrine by the pharmacist, and the paramedics were called in to assess patient and take her to the emergency room.

My tongue was numb and my mouth became dry. Part two: As the dizziness began to subside, the second phase of the reaction started. I had nausea. I felt EXTREME abdominal/uterine cramping, which was the worst part. The cramps came in waves (Ex: cramp for a minute, subside for 10 sec, repeat). I thought I was going have an uncontrollable bowel movement as a result, but thankfully did not. The cramps lasted about thirty minutes. The dizziness became mild during this phase but was still there. I was in excruciating pain and debated calling an ambulance. This pain felt worse than when I broke two bones. During the entire reaction I felt extreme anxiety and impending doom (I did not feel this way prior to receiving the vaccine). For the rest of the day I felt tired and extremely anxious (impending doom).

A 20-years-old female patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, formulation: solution for injection, lot number: EW0191; Expiration Date: Sep2021), via an unspecified route of administration, in Left arm on 22May2021 at 11:30 (at the age of 20-years) as single dose for covid-19 immunization. Medical history included ongoing acid reflux in the stomach; was diagnosed about one or two years ago. The patient did not receive any vaccinations within 4 weeks prior to the administration of suspect vaccine. The patient's concomitant medications included ongoing Tri-lo-sprintec (started taking it to regulate her cycle as she had an irregular period; she started this birth control 2 or 3 years ago). On 22May2021, the patient waited 15 minutes after the shot and felt fine, but later on that day (a couple of hours after) she got chills (about three hours after the vaccine). She stated she had normal side effects and did not think anything of it. On Sunday (23May2021), she had difficulty breathing (trouble breathing) and felt weak (feeling very weak and has no energy). She voiced it's hard for her to wear a mask. When she had to put a mask on it really felt like she could not breathe, and the air feels stuffy especially if she wears a mask; every couple of seconds she had to wear the mask under her nose because she could not breathe. Caller stated that she did not have this problem before receiving the COVID vaccine. On Monday (24May2021), she felt like she was coming down with a cold. Caller stated that she thought that might be her trouble breathing was from her cold-like symptoms, but she does not think it was, because she was not experiencing any cold-like symptoms on Sunday and was only having trouble breathing. She experienced coughing, sneezing, itching eyes/nose, chills, and headache. On Wednesday (26May2021), she started feeling nauseated (got very nauseous), not feeling good, she was getting a headache and had caught a cold.

Yesterday (26May2021), the chills went away, she has not had any chills today, but she does not know if she will have any from this point on. She believed that she has recovered with lasting effects. Caller stated that not feeling well was ongoing and persisting, but then stated that she feels it was worsening. Yesterday, she just felt nauseous, today she woke up with her stomach hurting very badly and abdominal pain; her weakness has continued. Yesterday she took pantoprazole for the abdominal pain and Tylenol for the pain and headache. She stated that she had a slight headache that is now coming and going, clarifies that it is persisting. Caller thought the reason that her stomach is hurting was because of her stomach acid problem. She deals with a strict diet that she must follow for things she was not supposed to have. Since she had the COVID shot, she believes it was affecting the acid problems in her stomach. Caller clarified that she was calling to see what she should do, if she should go see a doctor or if this is normal. The outcome of events Dyspnoea, Asthenia, Sneezing, Headache, stomach hurting, Itchy was not resolved. The outcome of events of Nausea, started not feeling good, Cold like symptoms was resolving.

Approximately 10 minutes after receiving the shot, I started to have a bit of swelling in my throat that was almost identical to the reactions I get from foods I am allergic to with my Oral Allergy Syndrome. Another 10-15 minutes later, it had gotten worse to the point where it was harder to swallow, plus I was a bit lightheaded and my mouth was itchy. The people monitoring the post vaccine waiting section didn?t want me walking around, so they sent someone to my car to get my liquid Benadryl, which is what I take for similar reactions to foods. I took about 50-75 mg worth and waited for an additional hour or so until the swelling had gone down mostly. Now (at almost 7 pm on the same day), I still have a tiny bit of swelling in addition to the ?normal? vaccine side effects, tiredness, soreness in my whole body, headache, pain at injection site.

The patient stated that she had not received a vaccine in several years but that the last time she did, she blacked out for maybe 30 seconds and felt dizzy. She states she thinks it was because she did not eat that day and stood up too quickly because she felt ok after. I notified (pharmacist) to be on stand by in case any incidence occurred and we had smelling salts and epipen on hand. I had the patient sit in the vaccine chair afterwards and about 3 minutes later, she started screaming to the top of her lungs that she felt like she was going to die. She screamed that she couldn't breathe and that her chest and head were "killing her". She kept screaming to remove the vaccine out of her arm (the liquid). Her eyes were starting to roll, but I knew she was breathing because she was screaming to not let her die. Her mother was with her and was very nervous and wanted emergency services, so We called 911. I took the girls hands and asked her to look me in the eyes and follow my deep breaths, because I began to think it was more of a panic attack. She followed by breaths and regained some composure but was sweating profusely, so I began fanning her. After a while of talking her through taking deep breaths and assuring her she was breathing and we had emergency services on the way, she began to calm down. EMS showed up about 15-20 minutes later and she declined to go with them. I stayed with the patient the entire time. She did not faint. I believe she just had a panic attack from working herself up about the vaccine. She was a little scared since she had fainted with the last vaccine.

Patient is a registered nurse at facility. She reported having slight itchy lips and scratchy throat after 1st dose. Patient very much wanted full protection that 2nd dose offers in order to be safe and keep family members safe. We discussed the possibility of an increased reaction, but she wanted to go ahead and felt the benefits outweighed the risk. I considered the fact that she is a health care professional, was fully informed and that we were at a skilled nursing facility and were prepared in case she had any reaction. About 10 minutes after vaccination she seemed to be coughing and felt like her throat was maybe swelling. She seemed to be breathing ok, but I asked her to take a Benadryl, which she did. Within 5-10 minutes after that she began shaking and seemed very pale. She said her symptoms were getting worse. I told her I was going to administer an epi-pen dose. 911 was called, I administered the epipen, we had heart rate monitor and pulse ox monitor on patient and she was stable, but scared. EMT's arrived and transported patient to ER. She was later released with Benadryl.

I received my second dose of the COVID vaccine around 12:30 pm. At around 4:00 pm, I noticed that my lips were slightly swollen. I went and bought liquid Benadryl. At around 5:45 pm, I took 20ml of the liquid Benadryl. I proceeded to sleep the rest of the night. I woke up around 8:20 am the next morning and noticed that my lips were significantly more swollen. I took 20ml more of the liquid Benadryl and noticed that my tongue was a little swollen as well. At around 9:40 am, I took 20ml more of liquid Benadryl. I noticed no change in my swelling and my throat started to feel like there was a lump. At around 10:20 am, I drove to the emergency room. The doctor noticed swelling in my lips and some in my tongue and throat. I was given cimetidine and methylprednisolone through an IV, which reduced the swelling.

About 10 minutes after vaccine, I was going out to give another vaccine and saw pt in distress. Got her in vaccination room and got 2 Benadryl from Emergency Bag down her - pt was able to talk but her wheezing was getting progressively worse so we called her emergency person (because she wanted to take herself to ER) to take her and let them know what was happening then I called 911 because even I could tell it was getting worse (Pt was reluctant to take an EpiPen - wanted to wait til it was worse) Dispatch highly recommended EpiPen and since I felt it was getting worse also I gave an EpiPen from Emergency Bag as well. Within 5 minutes pt was clearly doing better. Kept her in room just to stave off gawkers since we had 5 other shots waiting in waiting room - took ambulance about 15 minutes to arrive ... but that gave pt mom time to get to the store and accompany pt to ER with ambulance.

About five to ten minutes after I received my first shot, I started to feel like my throat was closing a little. I knew it wasn?t an allergic reaction because I could still speak, but I also became very dizzy and sweaty. I stood up to go see the nurse and she took my blood pressure and it was slightly higher than normal and my heart rate was extremely elevated. I sat down on a stretcher and felt incredibly light headed and gained a metallic taste in my mouth. I also felt very nauseous and started experiencing chest pains. It felt like a panic attack but more severe and more sudden. My throat felt very tight but I could still talk, and my cheeks felt like they were on fire. My face was bright red. They gave me some water and monitored me some more and encouraged me to go to the hospital, but my symptoms subsided after about 35 minutes. After that I just felt tired and didn?t have any more symptoms.

I got the first dose of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine at the Medical University. Approximately 10 minutes after administration, an allergic reaction began while I was driving alone in my car. Most notably my blood pressure dropped suddenly, causing me to almost pass out. I stopped driving and my symptoms worsened. Symptoms included shaking, sweating, nausea, confusion, rapid heart rate, red blotchy face, slightly labored breathing, itching and slight swelling of my tongue and lips, anxiety. I could still breathe, so I did not seek treatment, but sat in the parking lot of a medical building for at least an hour for symptoms to subside. Symptoms were acute for about 45 minutes and gradually decreased over four hours. The rest of the day and the next day I felt extremely weak. The following six weeks I continued to have swollen, dry, painful lips every single day and a very itchy rash on my hands and wrists. Occasionally I would wake up with swelling around my eyes. I also had an unusual reaction after eating a salad where my lips swelled even more and became numb, along with an itchy mouth. These long lasting symptoms did not go away until I got a steroid cream from a dermatologist, who denied that my reactions were from the vaccine after talking to me for only five minutes. I just believe that there are many more cases of reactions to the vaccines that have not been reported.
