Called Drs. , He recommended taking Tylenol. (Second Day) Next day, felt short of breath, weak, applied ice packs to my face. Third day, felt weak. By the fourth day, swelling and itching subsided; but skin on my face felt gritty under the skin. Drove me to the doctor's office the third day. I was short of breath walking from the car to the door to the doctor's office. I was wearing my mask. I saw a PA; but, she didn't tell me much of anything. I don't think she knew what to say.

believed the heart rate might be a result of being nervous; Tightness of throat/throat tightness; Laboured breathing; Fast HR/high heart rate; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable nurse, reporting for herself. A female patient of an unspecified age received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, solution for injection, lot number and expiry date were not reported), via an unspecified route of administration on 03Jan2021 at a single dose for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history included sensitivity to pollen, sensitivity to narcotics and allergic reactions to perfume, all from unknown dates and unknown if ongoing. There were no concomitant medications. The patient previously received pneumonia vaccine and flu vaccine, both for immunization and experienced pain on the side. The patient also previously took cortisone to lower her immune system. It was reported that on 03Jan2021, the patient developed a slight reaction immediately after first dose of Pfizer Covid vaccine which included tightness of throat along with laboured breathing with fast HR/heart rate was high (she believed it was greater than 80 BPM; her heart rate is usually in the 60's) which resolved after a few minutes. The nurse was going to give her Benadryl but did not as her signs and symptoms were resolving. She was asking for recommendations/clarifications on whether she should get the second dose given her reactions. She never had that type of reaction before. She had had sensitivity to pollen and narcotics. She read that she should not receive the second dose given her reactions but was asking for clarification. She would like to get the second dose and bought an Epi pen. Throat tightness and high heart rate didn't last for more than two minutes maximum. She visited websites and was directed not to get the second dose. She wanted to be 100% certain in regards to whether or not she should receive the second dose. Stated tightness in throat wasn't really that bad. She felt throat tightness previously when smelling perfume. Stated it wasn't anything to be frightened about. She also stated some websites said it does not matter and some websites said not to get the second dose. Also wanted to know if having the Epi Pen would help. She added that she explained reaction to the physician who advised her to get an Epi Pen for the second COVID Vaccine dose. She only had allergic reactions to pollen and perfume. Got the vaccine for Pneumonia and Flu. Did not get adverse reactions, but stated she only had pain on the side. Confirmed she has no NDC/Lot/Exp for the Pneumonia vaccine and Flu vaccine. She also got Coronavirus three months prior to receiving the COVID vaccine. She clarified that she diagnosed herself and it was the weirdest thing. She took cortisone to lower her immune system. Received first dose of COVID Vaccine on 03Jan2021. She wa due for second COVID Vaccine on 26Jan2021. She stated she is a psychologist with specialty in mental health. She believed the heart rate might be a result of being nervous. When she is nervous her heart rate goes up. Tightness of throat made her concerned. When asked about the indication, she stated that her husband works and the right thing to do was to be protected. She read she should have stopped taking Ibuprofen 10 days prior to the COVID Vaccine. She was not taking Ibuprofen any longer. Has no NDC/Lot/Exp for Ibuprofen at time of call. Confirmed she did not use the Epi Pen after the first dose of COVID Vaccine. She bought it for the second dose. The nurse who administered COVID Vaccine to the patient suggested she take Benadryl. By that time, she was feeling better. She stated it was questionable for half an hour. The outcome of the event Tightness of throat/throat tightness and fast HR/high heart rate was recovered on 03Jan2021 while the outcome of all other events was unknown. Information on the batch/lot number has been requested.; Sender's Comments: The patient had medical history included sensitivity to pollen, sensitivity to narcotics and allergic reactions to perfume. The reported events were likely related to first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE) due to plausible temporal relationship and clinical course. 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.

Took shot 1/20 and asked the RN if I should take it because I explained I just got over covid, I told her I wasn?t sure how long it was on Dec 19 I was raking leaves and I thought I should do this because I started having runny nose. I didn?t feel well that afternoon sneezing because I thought it was nothing. As the week went on I started sneezing and coughing and stopped up nose. I always end up with sinus infection when I get a cold Dec 28 I went to the doctor at doctors care and they did a covid test before the doctor would see I tested positive. I went home and rested, no energy, felt like I was hit by a train, couldn?t breathe, sneezed a lot and hardly coughed. January 1, I called ambulance and went to hospital, I was sick the first week of January. I didn?t know that you should wait 90 days to get the vaccine after you?ve had Covid. After I got the vaccination the adverse reaction, I woke up during the night with my arm hurting bad and throbbing and a very large red circle appeared on my arm 2? in diameter. The next 3 days I felt like I had covid all over again, the 4th day I woke up and felt a little better and got out of bed and started making progress each day. Now I?m not good, but I?m ok.

On Mar 5, I was no better, so I went to Urgent Care. They said I had an exacerbation of COPD, but I have never had COPD. They prescribed erythromycin, prednisone, and a Wixela inhaler. On Mar 15, my PCP, Dr. put me back on prednisone for 10 days and added 2 OTC asthma meds. Within 10 days I was much better. On Apr 5, I had some breathing tests that were normal. I saw pulmonologist Dr. on 4/16. He said it might have been a vaccine reaction. I have never experienced anything like this before.

The patient's medical history was not reported. None history of all previous immunization with BNT162B2 considered as suspect. Concomitant medication included cetirizine hydrochloride (ZYRTEC) for sinus disorder for years as needed. She took it the day before the COVID19 injection. She hasn't taken it since before getting COVID19 injection. No additional vaccines administered on same date of BNT162B2. No prior vaccinations within 4 weeks. She didn't have the ones on the paper. They didn't say she would have severe throwing up she almost had to call. She was choking on 12Apr2021. She was over it currently. She first threw up on Sunday evening and then was ok. On Sunday (11Apr2021 21:00) she only threw up once, but it was four intervals. Caller clarified an interval was where she would throw up then clean up and then throw up again. Then it was fine. On Monday (12Apr2021), in the evening around 9 PM she started to spin. She went to the bathroom and she was heaving and she couldn't say how many times she threw up. Her throat was so swollen and it felt like she was choking. Her throat was very raw. Her uvula was so swollen that is why she felt like she was choking. She was about to go the emergency room, but then looked it up. She did treatment that she saw online for 3 days. When she was gagging and coughing she looked up COVID19 Vaccine and it said that her throat would be swollen from severe throwing up. It made a lot of sense. She had all the symptoms listed online and it said it would get better in five days and if not seek treatment. It has gotten better. No visit for ER and Physician Office. Treatment received for all events. The outcomes of the events were resolving.

Almost immediately after receiving the first Pfizer vaccine my throat began to constrict, my heart started pumping and I was having a hard time breathing. I walked over the the EMT nearby who took my blood pressure which was 188/120. He asked me if I had forgotten to take my BP meds and I responded, I take no meds. He told me to take a seat while he took notes. A few minutes later he took my BP again and it was the same. He gave me a benedryl and a glass of water. The swelling in my throat receded somewhat. He watched me for the next 30 minutes then took my BP again which was 177/120. Feeling somewhat better, I waited another 30 minutes and asked the EMT if I could go home. He took my BP again which was the same and asked me if I wanted to go to the hospital. I said NO. I told him I have a BP cuff at home and would monitor my BP which was normal after 3 days. Needless to say, I have been frightened to get my second shot.

About a week after the vaccine, I started to notice a subtle difference in my heart beat. At night, I could feel my heart beat was a little off. I went to the doctor for something unrelated and was place on EKG that's how the doctor detected my arrythmia. He said I had A-fib and sent me to the ER. The ER confirmed my A-fib with an EKG and prescribed Eliquis, furosemide and potassium. A few days after discharge, I had chest heaviness and couldn't breath. I went to the ER. They did an EKG, CAT scan, blood work which also confirmed A-fib and build up of fluid around my heart, lungs and abdomen. I followed up with a cardiologist office and was to continue with the medications at discharge. I am being followed with a cardiolgist. Since then, my heart rythm is back to normal from what I can tell.

A 76-years-old female patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, solution for injection), dose 2 via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm Right on 30Jan2021 (76-years-old at the time of vaccination), (Batch/Lot Number: EL9265, Expiry date May2021) as DOSE 2, SINGLE for covid-19 immunisation. The patient medical history and concomitant medications were not reported. The patient previously took dose 1 PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, solution for injection dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm Right on 09Jan2021 12:30(76-years-old at the time of vaccination), (Batch/Lot Number: EL3248; Expiration Date: Apr2021) as DOSE 1, SINGLE for covid-19 immunisation and experienced throat started tightening, Lymph nodes under her jaw were sensitive to the touch, feeling more and more tired, entire body was leaden with lethargy, couldn't do anything, all her joints were aflame, nauseous, pain in muscles, pain in joints, couldn't raise either of her arms, chills, low grade fever of 99.2 degrees Fahrenheit, Fatigue. Patient was dreading getting the second Covid 19 vaccine. One of the questions on the questionnaire she filled out prior to getting her second dose was if she had a severe reaction to any vaccine. She answered yes but no one at the facility asked her about it. She put that she may have had a severe reaction with the first Covid 19 vaccine but no one at the facility questioned it. She put question marks on the questionnaire on that question to indicate she didn't know if she had a severe reaction for sure or not. She did want to have protection against the Covid 19 virus, so she did get the second Covid 19 vaccine. After getting the second Covid 19 vaccine she experienced the same thing going home. Her throat tightened. Her jaw and lymph nodes under her jaw were tender. She was tired but didn't feel the leaden feeling she had with the first Covid 19 vaccine. She was nauseous and had diarrhea. She had muscle pain and joint pain and chills. These symptoms went on for 5 days. She thought she would be ok after the 5 days like she was after her first Covid 19 vaccine dose. On the sixth day she almost passed out in the grocery store. She had to sit on the floor of the grocery store and put her head between her knees. She was dizzy. She was still having the diarrhea, nausea, and chills. It was like having influenza symptoms. She went home that day and got into bed. Then gradually she got better. Maybe around the 9th day after the vaccine she was able to do some things around her house and on the 10th day she was better. Her lymph nodes under her jaw were still swollen. She doesn't know if what she experienced were normal side effects. She found the Pfizer reporting website obtuse. The website indicates there was a time limit to finish a report. She did not file online because she wasn't sure she'd be able to finish in the time limit. She was grateful for protection against the Covid 19 virus and would get the Covid 19 vaccines all over again, but she was not looking forward to getting a Covid 19 vaccine booster. She reported she was very healthy and active. When probed if she had seen her primary care doctor or gone to the emergency department, she reports the hospital was far away. She was living in a rural area in the mountains and did not trust the closest hospital to her. Her doctor friend who was an ophthalmologist told her that her antibodies were really kicking in and that's why she had the reaction to the Covid 19 vaccine like she did. When probing adverse events following any other vaccines, she reports she hasn't had a vaccine since childhood and doesn't remember having any adverse events from her childhood vaccinations. The last vaccine she had prior to the Covid 19 vaccine was the cold vaccine she received in 1992. She'd like to add she also had a rapid heartbeat with the dizziness on the day she almost passed out in the grocery store. That was the sixth day after the second Covid 19 vaccine on 05Feb2021. Her heartbeat was rapid for about a week after starting on 05Feb2021. The clinical outcome of the events lymph nodes under jaw still swollen was not recovered, remaining all events was unknown. No Follow up attempts are possible: No Further information is excepted.

I had the tightening in my neck and around my mouth area that's where I usually get the reactions from, but for two days I have been fine and I did not eat anything on an unspecified date in Jan2021 out of the way to give me a reaction to it. Now I took 2 Benadryl and it subsided but it's still tight around my neck and a little tight around my neck and throat, like a tightness. What am I supposed to do? After I took this shot on Monday today is Thursday and I am having the same reactions that I had when I took (incomplete sentence) (pending clarification). The outcome of the events as soon as I got the shot I felt a little strange was recovered on 25Jan2021, little tight around my neck and throat, like a tightness and tightening in my neck and around my mouth area was not recovered and other events was unknown.

Chills; aches and pains; chest spasms; a fever a little shy of 101; hard to breathe; feel ill; activated all that discomfort; she thought she was having a heart attack; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient) reported for herself. A 77-year-old female patient received the first dose of bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), intramuscularly on 20Jan2021 12:30 at single dose in right arm to prevent covid. Vaccination Facility Type was Health department. Medical history included rotator cuff challenge. There were no concomitant medications. No other vaccine was administered on the same date. There were no prior vaccinations within 4 weeks and no adverse events were following prior vaccinations. Patient was calling about Pfizer Covid vaccine. She had the first shot on 20Jan2021. She did not have a reaction. She went to go get her monthly massage on Saturday (23Jan2021). On Sunday morning (24Jan2021) she started to feel ill and she had to go the hospital. She confirmed she was not admitted to the hospital. She had chills, aches and pains, it felt like an elephant was on her chest, she had chest spasms, a fever a little shy of 101. She went to hospital and the doctor there told her she had covid since she had all the symptoms. She confirmed she did not have covid and had a negative covid test. She had chest x-ray and an EKG since she thought she was having a heart attack. Reported her massage was primarily on her left shoulder, it was a deep massage on that area since she had a rotator cuff challenge, massage was focused on that shoulder. She was thinking that the vaccine activated all that discomfort since she felt it from the left part of shoulder, went down to her chest like a v, and back up to her right shoulder. Every time she took a breath she had a chest spasm and it was hard to breathe. The events required a visit to emergency room. For treatment, they gave her medication to take called robaxin, it was an anti-spasm, and 800mg of ibuprofen. She took robaxin Sunday night, Monday, and she took one on Tuesday since she was feeling better. She was sensitive to medication. She felt dizzy and nausea from Robaxin. The patient had recovered from the events completely by Wednesday on 27Jan2021. She had a reminder to return for the second dose on 10Feb2021. She was asking if she should get the second dose. Information about Batch/Lot number has been requested.

March 12, 2021 - On Friday about 2pm, I started with a runny nose ? by Sunday afternoon it was like a faucet turned on ? running down my face. March 13 - Saturday morning, I started coughing c chest congestion, and had Phlegm rattling in my chest, started sneezing very frequently/ some diarrhea. Otherwise, I felt fine. March 14 - Sunday morning, I started wheezing slightly, coughing more and sneezing frequently. Felt fine. Went shopping. Nose ran so much in store, had to run to the store to get paper towels to catch it. Later, when I carried a heavy bag of groceries from one car 12 feet to another, noticed I was very exhausted and had to rest about 15 minutes before driving home. Wheezing more. Monday, March 15, I took my B/P meds at 1:00am and my blood pressure was way up x 4 (160?s/ 70?s) p58-64, at 2:08am ? B/P was 183/92) so I took my PRN Clonidine and ate all the high Potassium foods I had in the house. By 3:40am my B/P was 120/66 but went back up later with coughing. I felt fine but tired. A little after 4am, I carried a bag of apples and a bag of oranges up my stairs and was totally exhausted ? I felt the energy draining out of me, and so was out of breath I dropped the bags on the floor and sat hyperventilating to get enough air in my lungs until I could breathe normally ? for 40 minutes - it felt like fluid building in my lungs. I started massaging my abdomen like crazy and coughing until it subsided ? considering whether I should go to E.R. My breathing did get some better But I sure did not exert myself. Just picking up my computer was taking my energy. Still coughing and getting rid of some phlegm. This was very scary and I was on the verge of going to the E.R. at 4:45am - I called the E.R. who said I probably could wait for a urgent care to open or talk to Dr.?s office. My breathing was some better. By 6:10am I was so tired I fell asleep. At 10am my B/P was 138/77 p53. Still very weak, coughing, wheezing, and trying to get rid of phlegm. I had no other symptoms. I called my Dr. who got me in a urgent care in her building at 3pm. That evening I started Postural Drainage which helped in getting rid of the phlegm. I have continued that still. March 16 ? I ?chatted? my doctor to let her know all that was going on. She scheduled me to see the Respiratory office in her building on the next day. I was feeling much better ? little nasal dripping, lungs felt better, March 17 ? Wednesday ? went to Respiratory appt but declined treatment because I felt so much better. More energy, better lungs than Tuesday, wheezing gone, less phlegm, still some coughing ? which is okay with me. I think this is a severe enough reaction that I should not have the second dose ? which is known to be more severe than the first.

I am 77. I had the Pfizer vaccine, March 9th, with a terrible reaction starting 2 days after. I couldn't use my brain to think, to read with comprehension, to remember things I wanted to remember and had difficulty finding my words. This lasted for 3 days when the fog began to lift. I also had some shortness of breath(SOB) and very low energy. The CDC has said that when giving the injection it is no longer necessary to aspirate (pull back on the syringe) which I was taught to do as a young nurse to ensure that you are not giving the injection into a vein (blood would appear in the syringe.) It is supposed to be given into the muscle which has plenty of veins so if you don't aspirate, how will you know if you are injecting into a vein? A week later, I ended up going to the local hospital ER because of the SOB and had Chest xray, EKG, brain Cat Scan and blood work which were all normal. I debated about getting the second shot but decided to get it as long as the injector gave the injection as I had been taught. Fortunately she was very experienced and agreed to inject me using the pullback method after I explained what I had gone through the 1st time. So for the second shot I had the sore arm but no other reaction. I think Dr is making a mistake about the pullback decision. Do we even know what happens if the vaccine is injected into a vein? I am not certain if my first shot was injected into a vein because the injector never pulled back to check. I have not heard of anyone else with my experience.

I first lost my nail. It was unusual because there was no trauma to the nail. I was reaching for something across my bed, and I started experiencing radiating pain across my chest as well as pressure. I stayed very still and then it spread through my left arm and up into my shoulder, neck ear and jaw. I remained still and tried breathing the best I could. This lasted a minute or two and then it released and was over. About a month later, I was diagnosed with RSV which ran down into my lungs and soon my blood pressure was going up because my heart was working so hard to breathe. It was over 200/175 which is abnormal for me. I had to end up calling an ambulance because I was having trouble breathing. I was prescribed blood pressure medication, steroids, antibiotics, prednisone and oxygen. I was not allowed to get out of bed, I couldn't walk. They told me it would take baby steps.

unconscious; no heart rate/heart was not beating; all of the sudden she stopped breathing and her heart stopped beating; COVID 19 test positive; act funny, kind of quiet and not talking which was unusual for her; pressure was 60 over 4; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient husband). A 78-year-old female patient received first dose of bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Lot Number: EN5318), via an unspecified route of administration on 28Jan2021 16:00 at single dose at left arm for covid-19 immunization. Medical history included kidney ablation (ablation on the kidney cancer 5 years ago), kidney cancer, blood pressure, neuropathy, pain, had a urinary tract infection 19Dec2020 and they saw the cancer came back, radiologist read the CAT Scan and said the size of the tumor 1.5 to 2.4. Concomitant medications included acebutolol for blood pressure taking for years, diclofenac for neuropathy using for 10 years, oxycodone for pain taking 19 years; all ongoing, and oxycodone hydrochloride (OXYCONTIN) for pain. Patient didn't receive any other vaccines within 4 weeks prior to the COVID vaccine. Family Medical History was none. The caller stated that he was not sure if the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine could have given patient (his wife) COVID-19 or not. He also stated that when they received their vaccines the facility was very crowded as was the hospital when the wife was getting her blood work done so he was not sure when or where she contracted COVID-19. On 29Jan2021, patient was very busy running several errands including going to the hospital for bloodwork and a nuclear medicine injection as part of a work up for kidney ablation that the patient was supposed to have completed, patient was in the process of getting ready to have an ablation on her kidney and had the nuclear scan for her kidneys and then went to get a COVID test. After they got home, patient sat down at the computer and she started to act funny, kind of quiet and not talking which was unusual for her. So at about 1700PM the husband went in to ask her what kind of music she would like and he found her unconscious in the chair. He took her blood pressure and it was 60 over 4; with no heart rate; she was just barely breathing, he could tell by the way her mouth moved. He tried to breath for her, all of the sudden she stopped breathing and her heart stopped beating. He called (phone number provided) and they rushed her to the hospital, and the paramedics verified her heart was not beating and they started to do resuscitation. Then they finally pulled her out of the chair and put her on the floor and she started to breath. When they took her to the ambulance she was still not quite coherent; she didn't know what was happening. She was taken to the hospital emergency room and stayed there for 12 hours and they monitored her with an EKG and only saw one spike for 6 seconds. They discharged her on 30Jan2021 afternoon and she has been totally normal 100 percent since then. Since she had been home she had been doing well and has had no other events. Added patient had never had a heart problem before. Caller stated that he was not sure if this event was related to her receiving the vaccine or not. Now they had to stay in quarantine 10 days until 08Feb2021 since the COVID test given at the hospital on 29Jan2021 night when she went in was positive. Patient was scheduled to received the second shot 18Feb2021. Outcome of events unconscious, no heart rate, pressure was 60 over 4 was recovered on 29Jan2021, events started to act funny and stopped breathing was recovered on 30Jan2021, outcome of other events was unknown. The adverse events resulted in emergency room/department or urgent care, patient was taken to the ER and monitored for 12 hours but no admission. No history of all previous immunization with the Pfizer vaccine considered as suspect. No additional vaccines administered on same date of the Pfizer suspect.

Seriousness criteria of these events were reported as disabling. Patient reported that was having major problems, a delayed immune response. Told everybody if this keeps up she was not going to make it. It was wearing her down and she was not going to survive. Occurred after second COVID vaccine. She is active, goes to pool, and does different things. Had vaccine on Thursday and was ok until Sunday. Started Sunday with low grade fever. Kept being low grade and never got to 101, 102, or 103. She didn't take ibuprofen. Usually takes ibuprofen once a day for routine aches and pains. Having weakness. Had no desire to eat or drink. She waited a couple days, but then called her doctor. Doctor's office wouldn't give her an appointment. Stated this wasn't the routine and has been going on for 10 days. This was too much. Two days later, caller's daughter-in-law took her to a place like an ER. A bunch of tests were done. She asked for an IV because she was chronically dehydrated. Weakness was getting to her. After seeing the doctor in the mini surgical ER, she didn't feel any better. She felt the same. Same nausea, weakness, low grade fever, the whole thing. Decided to see her regular doctor. Stated it wasn't her chest. Wanted to be told what was going on. Her regular doctor didn't order any labs. She was given a steroid shot. Thought she was in deep doo-doo. Stated this was not a good sign and she was not going to make it. She woke up yesterday with a rash covering her entire body. She had no clue she had the rash. Never saw the rash. Rash didn't itch, but she still had it. After steroid shot from doctor, she felt a little bit stronger and thought maybe she was going to make it, but then started getting severe pain. Patient was used to having aches and pains that went along with old age and her osteoarthritis. This was severe pain as if she fell and hurt her ribs. It hurts to take deep breaths. Her hip and knee were killing her. It was acute pain, not normal pain. This morning stated she couldn't take it and was going to take ibuprofen, which was not the best for her. She didn't want to eat, but tried to have food in her stomach to take the ibuprofen. She cannot take good deep breaths because of the soreness in her ribs. Thought something in her body was having a delayed immune response and her gut told her it was not good. For low grade fever, did not take ibuprofen, 07Mar2021 was when she started feeling yucky, she wanted to see how she felt and her temperature never really got up, stuck it out, normal temperature for her was 97 or lower, her temperature once in a while would range from 98 to 100.3 or 100.8, she cannot take paracetamol (TYLENOL). For weakness, noticed right away, felt a little better after steroid, had not been out of her door except to the ER. For chronically dehydrated, clarified she had no desire to eat, usually drinks coffee and tea in the morning, but now had no desire, was making herself drink, felt something wasn't right beginning on 07Mar2021, everything went south and got worse, clarified it really wasn't nausea, but no desire to eat or drink, doctor today gave her ondansetron (4mg) which didn't help and made it worse, eating and drinking didn't make her sick, just didn't want it. She had labs done in the ER and was told her labs weren't really that off for her to be that dehydrated. Asked for an IV because she was not drinking what she normally drinks, didn't feel any better after the IV. Rash covering her whole body, but didn't itch. Acute pain and with deep breaths began evening of 15Mar2021, seemed the same today, she just took an ibuprofen a little while ago and was feeling better. Patient also mentioned that realized her body was trying to get monoclonal antibodies and resistance to build up her immunity so that if she ever got infected with COVID virus she could fight it, it was just not working, it was not doing its thing, she was having a delayed immune response, was very worried about that, going on 8-9 days and it was weakening her by the day, didn't think she could take this too much longer. Clarified the COVID Vaccine wasn't working and her body couldn't get its act together. Patient had a slight sore arm after the second dose, never reacted at the injection sight, it was strictly internal, which kind of scares her, something was not right, was having the rash, pain, and severe weakness. Was not expecting any kind of problem. Didn't think too much about the second COVID Vaccine. Stated people were like "oh that second shot." If she didn't get better soon she is not going to do well. Cough was a dry, tight, non-productive cough, lungs were checked yesterday and were clear, felt like all of a sudden she has an urge to cough and nothing comes up. For steroid shot, didn't know if it was dexamethasone (DECADRON) or not, made her feel a little stronger for the day, but then brought on severe aches and pains in her joints and ribs, did not have this until the steroid shot. Patient said that didn't take ibuprofen the first couple days because she didn't want to mess up the immune response starting in her body, asked doctor about immune globulin for her delayed immune response, but doctor shook his head, knew that people with autoimmune are ordered IGE or IGG to test the immune system, asked doctor about this, but he shook his head. Stated she didn't think a CBC with different was performed at the ER, confirmed she was only in the ER after the second dose and was not admitted to the hospital. As of 17Mar2021, she stated then two to three days after that she woke up with rash over her entire body that showed up overnight, that alarmed her even more of course, no itch or nothing, no clue it was there until she washed off and could see it, she had never had a rash before, her arm never got red, but she had a low grade fever, stated now didn't know if good or bad, cough, not productive, some urge to cough, no appetite, not eating or drinking, and increasing weakness, today she couldn't say anything was different about her rash maybe slightly faded but she didn't feel any better, she did get a steroid shot when she went to doctor yesterday and that made her feel less weak. As of 18Mar2021, patient stated that had no reactions for the 1st 2 days following her 2nd dose however she started to feel ill, low grade fever that never went above 100. General feeling of the flu; aches and pain, which she had before but more than usual. She had no urge to eat. Tried to see her doctor when it had been going on for 5 days but they were not concerned. By that Friday, she went to the hospital. They found nothing wrong in her lab tests but she asked them for I.V fluids since she hadn't eaten or drank anything. On Monday, she went back to her initial doctor because she had a rash all over her body, it did not itch and her injection site had no redness. She was given a steroid shot, today she might be feeling a bit better. She lost 10 lbs. She had to stay inside for the past 10 days, except for doctor visits, although she was usually an active person. She would like to know how long the side effects would last.

Medical history included silent heart attack, ongoing Barrett's oesophagus from 2008, fall she had over two months (2021), eye surgery on an unknown date. She does not get any shots and can't have shots even for the flu shot because she had problems with two flu shots she had; states she had a problem with each one of the flu shots and does not know the names of the flu shots and has no lot numbers to provide for them; states she had the flu shots in the early 1990's and worked in healthcare and had to have them and they told her back then if she wanted to work she had to have the flu shots and then she got sick with both of the flu shots and they said they guessed they would not force her to have the flu shots. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported.

The tiredness and difficulty swallowing are better but she knows they are there and she tries to swallow something and is like boy her throat is still tight. They did an ultrasound in her left leg because she was limping from a fall she had over two months ago but still has a sore ankle from that and they sent her down for the ultrasound and a CT looking for blood clots in her lungs because she was short of breath (12Mar2021); caller states she thinks they were running everything they could to rule out things; states everything was negative for the CT and ultrasound and she believes the CT and ultrasound were done on 12Mar2021.

She just set up a HCP appointment after the reported events with a gastroenterologist because she has Barrett's and because of the esophagus she did not know if it flared up by the Pfizer vaccine and that caused the pain because the two pains of the heart and esophagus mimic each other with pain going up into the jaw so they were ruling out which one it was; states she went out as an atypical chest pain and called the cardiologist and went in and went over her records from the hospital with the cardiologist. She does not know what caused what in terms of the pain. The outcome of the event blood pressure increased was unknown, chest pain and pain in arm was recovered, other events was recovering.

Loss of voice; Asthma; her voice became extremely hoarse; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable nurse. A 78-year-old female patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), dose 2 via an unspecified route of administration on 16Mar2021 09:15 (Batch/Lot Number: EN6207) as single dose for COVID-19 immunization. Family history included sore arm. Concomitant medications included fluticasone furoate, vilanterol trifenatate (BREO ELLIPTA) taken for an unspecified indication, start and stop date were not reported. The patient previously took BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), dose 1 (lot number: EN6198) on 23Feb2021 in the right arm for COVID-19 immunization. About 3-4 days after (as reported), her voice became extremely hoarse, in which she lost a voice for 3 weeks. She mentioned that she was diagnosed with Asthma on 23Mar2021 and was started with a Breo Ellipta inhaler. The Breo had a listed side effect of hoarseness of voice in which she started a week after receiving the vaccine, to which her hoarseness became worse. She mentioned that according to the paperwork she received from Pfizer, hoarseness of the voice was also listed as a side effect. She consulted with her Pulmonologist who determined that the inhaler was working pretty well and would like to continue her on it and wanted to see if the hoarseness is still there by May. As of calling, she already has some of her voice back, but the hoarseness was still continuing, which gets worse in the afternoon or evening. She would like to know if this has been reported and for how long it will last. She had the injection/vaccine and hoarseness started about a week before she started on the Breo Ellipta inhaler (NDC: 01730859-10 Lot: UL4F Expiration: 10/2022 Dose: 100mcg/25mcg). She stated they both can cause the same thing with hoarseness. She clarified that when she lost her voice, it was just above a whisper. It had gotten progressively worse since it started a week prior. It lasted almost 3 weeks. Now she has started to get her voice back, but still has the hoarseness and this was as good as her voice gets, it gets worse in the afternoon and by 2:00 P.M. it was back down to no voice. She went down to see the pulmonary specialist and prescribed her 2 different inhalers. The specialist said it was an unusual hoarseness, but he couldn't tell what one it was from. The patient clarified she experienced the hoarseness first from the Pfizer Covid Vaccine after the second vaccine, and then a week later she started on the Breo Ellipta, and the hoarseness got worse. The doctor wants to wait until 19May2021 and see if she still has the hoarseness and then he might switch, but it was working so well, he didn't want to switch her yet. The patient was prescribed Breo Ellipta and Albuterol but she hasn't used the Albuterol. The patient reported that she considers the event as medically significant because hoarseness can cause cancer and she doesn't want it to get worse. No other vaccines administered on the same date of the BNT162B2 and no prior vaccination. The event hoarseness started on 18Mar2021 and loss of voice on 23Mar2021. The events did not require a visit to the emergency room. The outcome of the event hoarseness was not recovered, Loss of voice recovered on 13Apr2021 and asthma was unknown. The events hoarseness and loss of voice was reported as serious-medically significant. Follow attempts are possible. Further information is expected.; Sender's Comments: Based on the current available information and the plausible drug-event temporal association, a possible contributory role of the suspect product BNT162B2 to the development of serious events Hoarse voice and Loss of voice cannot be excluded. The case will be reassessed if additional information becomes available. 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.

Causality: reporter stated that she did think the patient's base line anxiety played into the reaction she experienced, the reaction was aggravated by it.; Sender's Comments: Based on available information, a possible contributory role of the subject product, BNT162B2 vaccine, cannot be excluded for the reported events of grade 2 allergic reaction, short of breathe and flushed due to temporal relationship and current known drug safety profile. The patient's underlying allergic physique also predisposed the patient to developing the event.

short of breath; nose bleed/lost a lot of blood/bleeding; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). This consumer reported similar events for two patients. This is the first of two reports. A 79-year-old female patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, solution for injection) lot number EL9263 and expiry date unknown, via unspecified route of administration on 26Jan2021 at single dose for Covid-19 immunization, and eicosapentaenoic acid ethyl ester (VASCEPA), acetylsalicylic acid (BABY ASPIRIN); both via unspecified route of administration from unspecified date to 31Jan2021 at unknown dose and frequency for unspecified indication. Medical history was none. Concomitant medication was not reported. The patient had taken the first shot of the Pfizer shot on 26Jan2021 (Tuesday) and the patient seemed to managing it pretty well, she got short of breath one night (unspecified date) but in general, she felt okay. But several days later, 5 days later Sunday (31Jan2021), on Sunday morning she felt okay, what happened was she leaned a little bit, she bent down to wash her hands in the sink and she had a huge nose bleed, it was nothing like she ever had before, she was just wiping, spurting a lot of blood so this was 5 days. It was the morning of the 5th day and they had to call an ambulance to take her to the hospital and then she left the hospital. The patient had lost a lot of blood in the ambulance, they said they had never seen so much blood, they could not stop it, they kept giving her towels and the same thing in the hospital, in the emergency room. The patient was just bleeding over everywhere. The patient informed that for the last several years she has been having one baby aspirin and has been taking for the last few months or two, two or four Vascepa which was a fish oil supplement that can thin the blood but she has never had anything like this and they said go to her ENT, and she went up going ENT, and first time she went she would not take out the packing. The patient informed that it was too severe for her to take out the packing and, when she went back with her following time she took some of the packing and it started to bleed again and she cauterized it in a lot of places and you know would wait and do it again. And then she end up putting some kind of bandage that was going to help the blood clotting. Now, she has been subsequently going back to her and it was still in the very end of. The patient informed that she was still passing some very small blood clots, it has not even stopped. The patient informed that she was on 19 days passed already, since she had the bleed. The patient was very concerned. The patient informed that she was supposed to get her second vaccine in 2 to 3 days, Tuesday and she thought that this was the very bad experience that she had. The patient wanted to know if the aspirin and fish oil could have contributed to this, she stopped these as of 31Jan2021. The patient was talking to her daughter and her daughter has a friend whose mother lives in the same area and had her first Pfizer vaccine and had a small nose bleed right afterwards and then when she has second vaccine, she had another, a very bad. The patient informed that her daughter and a friend of hers said that a similar reaction occurred to her mother after the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, she had two small nasal bleeds and right afterwards, when she took the second vaccine she had a very big one, like hers, where she had to be taken to the hospital. The patient was concerned, she has been told that the response to the 2nd vaccine was stronger than the first. The patient further informed that she had no nose bleed like this before, like her husband was a physician, that she never had anything like this before, this was very serious kind of situation to happen, and this after the very first vaccine that she had. She had a very severe nosebleed, she had to go to the hospital to stop it. She was on a baby aspirin and some fish oil as well. The patient informed that she wasn't warned that this could thin her blood, that this was enough of a dose to do anything to create this deluge of bleeding. The patient informed that she was few days out from getting her second shot and she had stopped the baby aspirin and the fish oil about three weeks ago. The patient informed that she was not going to take second. The patient wanted to know how long she was going to wait, how long she was going to test her antibody and see that she don't have any more antibodies and will go take the other brand vaccine. The patient added she was reporting that she had a terrible nosebleed and wanted to file a safety report. The patient wanted to know that if she choose not to get the 2nd vaccine, because of her worry of having this reaction again, how long would it be before she could get another vaccine; how long can she wait to get the second dose, or can she get a second dose from another manufacturer. The patient was requested to contact physician. The action taken in response to the events for eicosapentaenoic acid ethyl ester (VASCEPA) and acetylsalicylic acid was permanently withdrawn. The outcome of the events was unknown.; Sender's Comments: Based on the information provided and plausible temporal association, the causality between the BNT162B2 and the event nosebleed cannot be excluded. This 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 to regulatory authorities, Ethics Committees, and Investigators, as appropriate.,Linked Report(s) : US-PFIZER INC-2021191054 same reporter, similar drug/events, different patient

A 79-year-old female patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), second dose via an unspecified route of administration in left shoulder on 11Feb2021 at age of 79-year-old at single dose for COVID-19 immunization; methylprednisolone (MEDROL, Tablet), orally from 20Feb2021 to 26Feb2021, at 4 mg, by mouth, frequency was different based on the day, from 27Feb2021 to an unspecified date, at unspecified dose for swelling, the back. Medical history included thyroid and pericarditis fluid. Family history included brother had heart disease. There was no prior vaccinations within 4 weeks. Concomitant medication included levothyroxine sodium (SYNTHROID) ongoing for thyroid for 20 years. Historical vaccine included first dose of bnt162b2 in left shoulder on 21Jan2021 (Batch/lot number: EN6201) for COVID-19 immunization with no side effects. The patient had her 2nd Pfizer vaccine dose on 11Feb2021 and received a "medrol pack" on 20Feb2021 for "shoulder, back and neck pain. She have felt lousy for 4 weeks. She went to the hospital with palpitations and it probably was from the 2nd pack of methylprednisolone, she was prescribed after the 1st pack did not really help her pain. She haven't been sick or had a cold for 25 years and the 2nd dose through her for a loop. She stated her daughter called her and she said that her doctor told her that her vaccine may not be effective and she may not be protected because she took methylprednisolone. The patient received the second vaccine on 11Feb2021 and she had a lot of shoulder, under arm, and left breast swelling. The patient mentioned she went to her doctor because after calling the COVID hotline they said they had cases where some of the vaccine had seeped into the lymph nodes. She was told to have her lymph nodes. No patient demographic details provided regarding those other patients who had the vaccine seep into lymph nodes. She went on to explain she went to the doctor, but the doctor said there were no problems with the lymph nodes. On 13Feb2021, she felt achy and fatigued, back discomfort. The lightheadedness occurred on 18Feb2021. The doctor gave her a high dose of the methylprednisolone 4mg pack for a week. 16 days later on 27Feb2021 it had not touched the discomfort in back, fatigue and lightheadedness and gave her another pack of methylprednisolone. She also had heart palpitation, was sweaty and went to the Emergency Room. The patient mentioned she took a low dose of levothyroxine sodium (SYNTHROID). She asked the doctor about the methylprednisolone being taken after the shot. The patient heard it diminished the effect of the shot, that she may not have as much protection. She had called the COVID hotline to address this issue and they said people who were on chronic steroid therapy had no problem as far as they know. The patient asked if she was protected because she had the methylprednisolone pack the first one within 9 days after shot and a second pack 16 days later. She took a low dose of generic levothyroxine sodium every day. She commented she was concerned with the drug interaction and wanted to make sure still protected. She was informed by individual who answered COVID hotline she felt like she was still protected because others have been on chronic steroid therapy. Shoulder swelling started a couple day after the second shot, explained it was there or about around 13Feb2021. Her shoulder blade was puffy and tender. The swelling went into the arm and breast. Her breast felt like it weighed 60 pounds and ached. That took a while to go away. The patient explained initially it was also there or about around 13Feb2021 when she noticed she was so fatigue and had the worse headache (Feb2021), she never got nauseous. Her shoulder was still swollen a week ago as of 09Apr2021. She went to a chiropractor for an adjustment and the chiropractor said shoulder was still a little swollen. She had terrible back pain in center of back on 18Feb2021. It was so much that she was afraid something else was going on. The patient stated the swelling it was ongoing up until a few days ago as of 09Apr2021. She still had puffiness around that area when went to chiropractor. For the back discomfort she went to chiropractor for adjustment. She was unsure when that discomfort went away. The achy feeling was ongoing with her muscles and legs until last week as of 09Apr2021 when she started to feel better. Her legs felt rubbery. Her muscles felt achy. She felt better as of 09Apr2021. It had gotten better within the last week as of 09Apr2021. The fatigue was ongoing until last week as of 09Apr2021. The patient felt so bad for month and had no idea what was going on. Her lightheadedness went away last week as of 09Apr2021. She commented she did not want to blame all of this on the shot because she did not know what methylprednisolone did to her. The patient confirmed she had back discomfort. She still had some back discomfort. She started to fell short winded a week before the heart palpitations appeared really bad on 21Mar2021. She did not feel short winded anymore, but she was unsure when that stopped. With her heart palpitation she felt clammy and hot. Therefore, she wen to the ER. The heart palpitations gradually got better, and probably stopped totally last week as of 09Apr2021. She mentioned she had a headache for a good month after the second shot. It started either the 13Feb2021 or 14Feb2021. She stated all her symptoms were getting much better since last week as of 09Apr2021.

She went back to doctor on 05Apr2021 and did another chest x-ray and another echocardiogram and everything was fine.

Asthma attack began about 20 minutes after injection, with throat tightening, slight mouth swelling sensation and immediate wheezing which grew progressively worse. I had my inhalers (Levalbuterol and Flovent) with me, used Levalbuterol at the direction of medical people who surrounded me after I reported wheezing. They gave me a Benadryl, then brought a wheel chair and sent me directly to the ER. I was there about 3 hours during which I had a heart monitor, a "breathing treatment" by a respiratory therapist, and DUONEB, famotidine (PEPCID), and (DELTASONE). I was given a 3 day Rx for 20 mg. of prednisone, and released. My lungs felt "twitchy" the next day and my voice was muted, but was well otherwise. The only "normal" side effect I had was some soreness at the injection site for a couple of days, with some light sensitivity there for a few weeks.

trouble breathing; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer. A 80-years-old female patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Batch/lot number: EL3249), by injection once to upper right arm on 21Jan2021 at single dose for prevention. The patient medical history and concomitant medications were not reported. The patient experienced trouble breathing on 24Jan2021 with outcome of unknown. She got the vaccine shot last Thursday, later clarified as COVID vaccine, and she has read over the factual sheet given after the shot, she read it once quickly, will she be ok? She has difficulty breathing, one medication, she has that too, but not more often, with this she has been having it more often, she sleeps well during the night, it is just during the day. That was a severe reaction, two days ago or so, she can breathe sometime, but it's during the day, she read one dose effects say severe reaction, and it also says. she should have been given this paperwork before the vaccine, she didn't need it, she did not have an emergency, unless the second shot will be more helpful than one shot, after 3 weeks she gets another one. It says to call vaccine provider or healthcare professional if you have any effects that bother you or do not go away, how long do you wait until it doesn't go away? Why do they give the paperwork, why don't they give it at the doctor's office office before you set up an appointment to get vaccinated? Before so you can sit down and read the paperwork, she probably would not have gotten it, it says it is only only for emergency use for 16 and over, is this still a clinical trial, that information is not provided, and that burns her behind. She got the shot and 3 days later had the difficulty breathing, so she got it last Thursday, then started Sunday, Monday, into Tuesday, and it's just not. (caller did not complete sentence). Reporter email address declined. She hasn't told her doctor yet, provider's address and email address unknown. She thinks it started on Sunday, it wasn't yesterday, she thinks it was Sunday off and on, sometimes during day she can catch her breath, it may not be this or something, which is what she wants to find out, she is concerned with the idea this should not be sent out, she would not have gotten it. Has Pfizer received many calls about this, about the paperwork? It says it has not been approved, she would never have gotten it, it says only for emergencies, she doesn't have an emergency, this should have been given before the vaccination, it is probably still under clinical trial, but they are saying on TV everyone should be vaccinated, it is either up or down, yes or no, a see saw, yes they do something, then no, it's controversial, some part of paperwork says yes. Her breathing is not worse, this says it may go away in a few days, it says if it bothers you or does not go away, how long does she wait? It says severe reaction she doesn't understand, if it goes away, it doesn't bother her health, then goes away because of the vaccine inside, ok, once she got the vaccine, she had to stay in a room for 20 minutes or so, she had to stay in a room if she had a reaction. Her vaccine card says first dose, then says the hospital, she can't really read it, they write so quick. Says 11Feb2021 is her second dose She read in there, if you have an allergic reaction to other vaccines, she said no, this was her first reaction.

Patient had her second COVID vaccine on 2/20/21. The next day she developed diffuse body aches. She went on to develop worsening dyspnea and fever to 103°F on February 23. She had a fever again on February 24. The patient also experienced a few episodes of vomiting and diarrhea but no abdominal pain and had pain of the legs, right greater than left. Blotchy red patches of the hands and arms developed. She therefore presented to the ER on 2/25/21. See full history below from infectious disease note on 3/1/21: Patient is an 80 year old female who has a past medical history notable for hypertension, dyslipidemia, and hypothyroidism. The patient was diagnosed with a high-grade lymphoma of the retroperitoneum in 2004 and completed 4 cycles of multi-chemotherapy (Cytoxan, Adriamycin, vincristine, methotrexate, and IT chemotherapy (Magrath-like regimen)). She completed 4 cycles with complete remission on PET scan. The biopsy of a left cervical lymph node in 2007 revealed follicular lymphoma and she completed radiation therapy to the neck with complete remission. A left axillary lymph node biopsy in 2016 revealed grade-3 follicular lymphoma with mixed follicular and diffuse histology. Chemotherapy was pursued. The biopsy of a pelvic lymph node in 2019 was consistent with G1-2 follicular lymphoma.  She completed radiation to the pelvis in May of 2019.  She developed progressive pelvic adenopathy in April of 2020 and received 5 cycles of chemotherapy. Subsequent CT showed improvement in the adenopathy.  Her course was complicated by pulmonary emboli (September 2020).  In November of 2020 she was started on maintenance Rituxan every 2 months.  She received the 2-dose Pfizer COVID vaccine series on 1/29/21 and 2/20/21. With the above background, the patient presented to the emergency room on February 25, 2021 with complaints of diffuse body aches, which had developed that day after receiving her second dose of COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) vaccine.  She went on to develop worsening dyspnea and fever to 103°F on February 23.  She had a fever again on February 24. The patient also experienced a few episodes of vomiting and diarrhea but no abdominal pain and had pain of the legs, right greater than left. Blotchy red patches of the hands and arms developed.  She called Oncology on February 20 and it was recommended that she go to the emergency room for evaluation.   She was afebrile on presentation to the emergency room.  She was tachycardic, however, with a pulse rate of 117 bpm.  She was breathing at 48 breaths per minute.  Blood pressure was 105/80 mmHg.  Oxygen saturation by pulse oximetry was 96%. Examination was notable for paraspinous muscle tenderness, tachypnea, mild respiratory distress, and a mildly distended abdomen.  Mild erythematous patches of the feet and forearm were noted, as well as evidence of edema of the right leg from the knee to the lower leg. The peripheral blood leukocyte count measured 0.8x10e3/µL.  ANC was 0.48x10e3/µL.  Platelets measured 96x10e3/µL.  Creatinine was 0.97 mg/dL.  AST was 86 and ALT 20 U/L. The lactic acid level of the venous blood was 3.6 mmol/L. The procalcitonin level of the blood measured 28.37 ng/mL. The C-reactive protein level was 313.7 mg/deciliter. The creatine kinase (CK) level was 4023 U/L.  LDH measured 314 U/L. Troponin was 3.22 ng/mL.  Urinalysis showed 6-10 wbc?s, 0-2 rbc?s/hpf, 3+ blood, negative nitrites, hyaline and granular casts as well as amorphus crystals. A chest radiograph showed possible, but not definite, mild atelectasis or infiltrate at the left lung base.  A radiograph of the right tibia/fibula showed circumferential soft tissue edema seen within the knee and upper to mid aspect of the lower leg.  EKG showed sinus tachycardia but no evidence of arrhythmia or ischemia. Cultures of specimens of the blood were obtained.  The patient was started empirically on vancomycin and cefepime and was admitted.   Faint erythema and ecchymosis of the right leg extending to the dorsal right foot and right wrist erythema were noted following the patient?s admission.  Her condition subsequently destabilized with increased respiratory rate, worsening pain, and hypotension, so she was transferred to the ICU. An abdominopelvic CT on February 25 revealed a small amount of free fluid in the abdomen around the liver, cholelithiasis with no evidence of acute cholecystitis or biliary dilatation, a nonobstructing 5-mm stone of the mid pole of the left kidney, coronary artery calcifications, mild infiltration of the fat in the inferior retroperitoneum and along the right common iliac region with small nodes in this region, similar compared with September 24, 2020, but improved compared with April 30, 2020, and consistent with response of lymphoma to chemotherapy; a myomatous uterus. A CT scan of the right lower extremity showed extensive edema about the subcutaneous tissues of the right lower leg and infiltration of the fat about the muscles of the right lower leg, likely representing cellulitis and fasciitis, and possible myositis. However, there was no air within the subcutaneous tissues or muscles to suggest necrotizing fasciitis and no evidence of abscess.     The patient?s antibiotic treatment was later changed to vancomycin, piperacillin-tazobactam and clindamycin. Cultures of specimens of the blood were later reported as being positive for methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus on 2/2 sets. Repeat blood cultures (February 26) were positive as well. Her antibiotics were modified to cefazolin monotherapy. Repeat blood cultures on Feb 27 and 28 were negative.   TTE completed 2/27/21 without obvious vegetation.   TODAY (3/1/21): Cultures negative 2/27 and 2/28. Remains on IVIG. Afebrile.

Later that afternoon, she started showing symptoms of problems, was weak and couldn't walk, disoriented, wanted to sleep, was incoherent, couldn't/wouldn't eat, was very, very much having trouble, shallow breathing. He tried to stay right her and eventually it got to be scary for him with her shallow breathing. He ended up calling an ambulance and she went to the hospital. They gave her tests and was there until about 4 or 5 in the morning before she started showing signs. She was dehydrated was a part of it. The tests were showing the symptoms were improving and she was beginning to come out of it fortunately with doctor's care because he didn't know what to do. He had been going through materials and she is coming up on another shot next Monday and does not want her to go through that if it can be helped. She was coming up for the second shot. Saw something on the tv that rattled him to his bones. It had been found that people who had Covid virus previously and then got the shot may not need a second shot. He is trying to flush that out to whether or not that is something or not that she should be considering. They have the card to go back to the same place for the second shot and they are trying to figure if they need to set up an appointment now. Hoping that this was the worse of it and it is hard for them to call back and his physician is not an expert on this and he got Pfizer's office contact number and decided to call. Outcome of the events was recovering. Information on the batch/ lot number has been requested.

choking experience; throat tickled; dizziness; bowel movements all afternoon which is a common allergic reaction; bowel movements all afternoon which is a common allergic reaction; Her heart started to pound/a rapid heartbeat; her ears started to ring (a pounding in her ears); had pressure in her jaw, chest, head, ears, and allover; high adrenal stimulance; excreted 1 cup of urine more than what she usually does; high pressure; dehydrated; couldn't sleep; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). An 80-year-old female patient received the first dose of bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Batch/Lot Number: EN6202), via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm Right on 01Mar2021 13:30 (at 80 years old) as single dose for covid-19 immunisation. Medical history included irritable bowel syndrome, allergic to gluten, lecithin, and other barky parts of plants, high pressure, she did not hear very well, left breast surgery, skin cancer. She had a small skin cancer taken off each of her legs, one removed in Jan2020 and one removed in Feb2020. They are all healed up and they are fine, it was not the bad kind. There were no concomitant medications. The patient experienced choking experience in which her throat tickled, and dizziness, dehydrated, her heart started to pound (a rapid heartbeat), her ears started to ring (a pounding in her ears), she had pressure in her jaw, chest, head, ears, and allover, she had high pressure, excreted 1 cup of urine more than what she usually does, couldn't sleep due to high adrenal stimulance, bowel movements all afternoon which is a common allergic reaction all on 01Mar2021 with outcome of unknown. Clinical course was reported as follows. She mentioned that she was fine for 20-30 minutes to an hour after she got home. That afternoon, she noticed that her bowel movement was regular, constant, and repeating which was not normal and would typically indicate SIBO (Small intestine bowel overflow) in which the colon empties everything. She mentioned that this was indicative of her gluten allergy. She reported having had bowel movements all afternoon which is a common allergic reaction she has to plants like lectin and gluten especially due to the irritable bowel system-her whole bowel system will empty and she will have to replace 2 days worth of food. With this event starting 01Mar2021 her bowels just kept emptying and emptying. During dinner while she was eating and watching tv, her heart started to pound (a rapid heartbeat), her ears started to ring (a pounding in her ears), she had pressure in her jaw, chest, head, ears, and allover, she had high pressure, and a choking episode in which her throat tickled, and dizziness that she couldn't get up. She took hot water for the tickling sensation and took one aspirin for the other symptoms, but she still did not feel very well. She went to bed at 9pm but couldn't sleep due to high adrenal stimulance, she only slept like 2-3 hours long which she can get from Novocaine with her teeth. She got up 3 times and excreted a cup of urine per time. In the morning, she woke up and excreted 1 cup of urine more than what she usually does. She got herself weighed and had a weight of 109lbs versus the normal 122lbs which indicated that she was really dehydrated so she took her fluids and ate breakfast. Other than this, she mentioned that she got up today and felt fine and feels that in 2 days she will be fine. She felt pretty good and she was going to run but did not dare burn any more calories or fluids so she is sitting still and taking it easy. Regarding outcome of event she reported the pounding pressure like high blood pressure are better, fine# she had a normal breakfast# she can get around and do whatever she needs around the house except she needs now to spend the day recouping from the dehydration so she needs pay attention to what she eats and drinks. She mentions that she runs 3-4 miles a day and tries to be active for her age. She is asking if she can take the 2nd dose in 3 weeks. She is unsure if this is an allergic reaction or something psychological. The outcome of the event was reported as recovering.

The patient's concomitant medication included isosorbide. Patient had the first Pfizer shot and wasn't even sore or anything, patient was so happy but that about 4 or 5 hours later about maybe 5 o'Clock, patient had allergic reaction and started to feel a sensation in lip and when she looked in the mirror, what was all that on lip and one side on lip it had turned white and it had lump was extended along lip line, lymph node was swelling up and patient had white lumps on lip which still had but it was going down and some white patches on face. Nothing happened on the 24Feb2021. Patient thought it was the 25Feb2021 that was when all trouble started. Patient felt like nightmare because she started feeling like something was choking her in mouth and next minute patient started coughing, coughing real hard and that was terrible cough then after this strange voice and patient realized it was breathing and it was like somebody has cranky paper in hand which screaming up that's what breath sounded like.

Patient had terrible pains all over and felt like patient was dying, patient was going to die. Patient said she need an ambulance, patient was very ill and had to be taken to hospital. They came within a few minutes, they started questioning about what was happening and they put patient to the emergency room and well they test patient for Covid as well naturally. It was negative, they did it 2 times and it was negative. When they took patient to one of the room in fact patient was frightened because they didn't told patient it was negative. Patient said she got the virus, they said not but patient had to take the oxygen as it's surge to scan on lungs. They said patient had allergic reaction to the vaccine. Patient was supposed to have it but at the same time there was the variant, doctor said patient was 70% covered, didn't have it but patient want to just check the status was with a person like her was allergic. Patient had shots in face and patient did tell them that she had all sorts of things on face.

Patient said she won't be able breath with them and that was what they did, they 'reflect' her, they said patient had pneumonia which she did not have (Further clarification was unknown). Early the next morning they put patient down 2' o'clock in the morning. Patient wanted to go home, they said patient can't as she had very bad infection in lungs which was completely untrue. The next morning (the same morning early), patient was okay because the pains and everything was gone but she believe the medication they put patient on that caused to short of breath and patient said please don't give her the medication and they did. They only give generic medicine in the hospital and patient took brand name. On 26Feb2021 patient actually called the doctor for all results and she told nothing, patient didn't get the result. Anyway they took patient off one medication, they didn't give it to her and this medication you can not get off of it and through that patient had a headache the whole of the day and the whole day on the 26Feb2021 patient was suffering with very bad headache and kept asking for the medication they said they would give to the patient. Finally the doctor gave only to the aspirin and paracetamol (TYLENOL) that both the same and in the end patient husband have to go and get the pill because they still hadn't given it to patient all day long. Patient said to doctor because she was breathing hard and she said the doctor did this to her by giving these pills that don't agree with her. She told she can not take this medication, anyway the doctor said to patient husband go home and get her medication, and he said so now you are medicating yourself. By the next day patient was ready, she was breathing normally and was ready to go home but late afternoon they said patient should go home but she still had those white patches but they were not as prominent as what they were. Patient whole lip turn white, whatever they did, whatever they gave, patient had sore around mouth and face swollen up. Patient didn't know whether she was allergic to the medicine or what but her face, it looked like she had, patient was fine anyway couldn't get an appointment with GP to the Wednesday (unspecified week) but it free appointment on the Tuesday and patient went in and showed him what it looked like.

Immunotherapy was no longer working/had another mass; Immunotherapy was no longer working was reported as worsened/had another mass; Having more issues with breathing; emphysema; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). An 80-years-old female elderly patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19, Solution for injection, Lot Number: EN6201, expiration: not reported), intramuscular, administered in arm left on 18Feb2021 at 18:00-18:30 as second dose, single for covid-19 immunization(at the age of 80years). Medical history included cancer. No additional vaccines administered on same date of the Pfizer suspect. No prior vaccinations within 4 weeks. Other and family medical history was none.Concomitant medications included prednisone -1mg daily; was a higher dose back when she started and was now decrease,) taken for polymyalgia from Oct2020 to an unspecified stop date; pembrolizumab (KEYTRUDA) taken for Stage 3 Lung Adenocarcinoma (non-small cell) from 02Jan2021 to an unspecified stop date, infused once every 3 weeks; received infusion at chemotherapy center; no sample of the product available to be returned, packaging sealed and intact. Previously, the patient received historical vaccine of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19, Solution for injection, Lot EL9265, expiration was unknown) injected intramuscularly, administered in upper arm left on 28Jan2021 as first dose, single for covid-19 immunisation , barely felt it and no adverse event following prior vaccinations. The patient received it and was going through immunotherapy cancer treatment and was doing well. On 05Feb2021, she saw her in her office and was doing well with shrinkage and treatment with first mass, can decrease to once a month instead of 3 weeks. Then when she had second shot she just found out it got bigger. It was reported that on 07Apr2021, she got a CT scan and it showed she had another mass. She saw CT result sooner but did not discuss with her doctor until then. The CT scan also had emphysema (Start date: 2021) which she was not aware of as no one had ever verbally talked to her about that before. She saw the doctor on 14Apr2021 09:30, and said immunotherapy is no longer working. Her doctor wanted to stop the Keytruda, since it was not working, but they agreed to continue for 3 more sessions and do another scan after that. She has had things get worse, since she has a new mass and is having more issues with breathing since saying the immunotherapy is no longer working. One infusion of KEYTRUDA was skipped and then started again to see if it will kick in and start up again. The patient was wondering how the best way was to report a possible link and her immuno-therapy. Back when the vaccine first come out, it was questionable if cancer patients should or would get the vaccine and then they decided yes, and she did it. She would like to know if Pfizer was doing any further follow up with that population and was there any new info on cancer patients who have received the vaccine and whether are monitoring that. The patient underwent lab tests and procedures which included CT which showed she had another mass and emphysema on 07Apr2021. No other relevant test. Outcome for more issues with breathing was unknown and for rest of the events was not recovered. Information about lot/batch number has been requested.

Burning of mouth, lips, difficulty breathing. Lips swelled, cracked and peeled. Inside of mouth no longer burning , Swelling in lips has gone down, they have been peeling for days. Lips are red, still sore, but I'm hoping they are done peeling. I really don't feel I can handle another shot of this vaccine. I think I may have to cancel the second shot. I don't know what is it it, everyone keeps telling me it has no penicillin or sulfa drugs in it, but the symptoms are the same. The only difference is my hands haven't cracked and peeled along with my lips and mouth. I've had these problems since last tuesday night and am taking Benadryl trying to get some relief from it still. Please let me know if you have any solutions to prevent this.

An 81-years-old female patient received first dose of bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Batch/lot number: EL9261, Expiry date: 31May2021), via an unspecified route of administration on 19Jan2021 at Single Dose (dose unknown; by injection once to left upper arm) for covid-19 immunisation, levothyroxine sodium (SYNTHROID), orally from an unspecified date to an unspecified date at 0.75 mg once a day, and orally from an unspecified date to an unspecified date at 0.88 mg, once a day for thyroid disorder. Medical history included cancer, heart stents, irregular high blood pressure, breathing problem, underactive thyroid, back problem. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported. The patient took a flu shot 20 years ago for immunization and got really sick, took Pneumonia shots for immunization and was fine. On 19Jan2021, the patient had a little lazy and tired. On 21Jan2021, her heart was beating out of her chest, like she had a drum going off; beating so fast and rapid it, and her head felt closed off and ears- she could feel heartbeats in her head; on 21Jan2021, her body was shaking. In Jan2021, she had a couple tinge-y pains in her heart and shortness of breath; she had SVG, she thought, it was irregular heartbeats coming from the top of her heart. Details were as follows: On 22Jan2021, she woke up in the morning around 3-4 am and said "my heart was beating out of my chest and my head and ears closed down." The sensation subsided by 8 am. She called her family MD who did not respond so the following Monday she was in contact with her cardiologist who put her on a Holter monitor for a few days. He later told her she had SVT and prescribed a beta blocker for her to take. The patient stated "I am so allergic to medicine." She took Plavix after a stent 5 years ago and was fine taking it for a few years. Then she had another stent placed, was prescribed Plavix again, and was "so sick and dizzy and short of breath - it was the Plavix." States that she can take Cipro, ibuprofen, and synthroid and that her list of allergies is about "2 pages long." The patient wanted to know if she should take the second dose? her cardiologist advised that she not take it. Caller states she doesn't want to take the second dose and probably won't. She had a long history of allergic reactions to medications. She never had the flu, she hasn't had mumps, chicken pox, measles, occasionally, rarely a cold, about 20 years ago, she took a flu vaccine and got so sick after the shot and never took it again, she never got the flu, she does take Pneumonia shots and was fine. States she seems to have a natural immunity against typical disease you can catch. Other things, she had cancer, heart stents, and things of that sort, as far as infectious diseases, she had no problems. She had a reaction she thinks came from the COVID shot. She had a blood test and it showed her thyroid went a bit more underactive, so about 2 weeks ago, her Synthroid was raised from 0.75mg to 0.88mg, so 0.88mg was a new medication, but it was minimal. Communication: Caller was advised to slow down to assure accurate documentation. Synthroid 0.75mg: no NDC, lot, expiry. States this has been her only change in meds recently. She got that Synthroid the same day as she got her COVID vaccination, which was 19Jan2021, that afternoon, she got a Pfizer COVID vaccination. Also she got a prescription for her new Synthroid. The first day, 19Jan2012, she had no reaction at all, she took two Tylenol, someone suggested. She felt a little lazy and tired, for the rest of Tuesday, then Wednesday she felt more tired, she laid around on the couch watching TV, she stayed in her pajamas, had no serious reaction, just tired, then Tuesday and Wednesday, and then on Thursday night, she never did anything on Thursday either, she went to grocery store, was not feeling better, and on Thursday, 21Jan2021, at 3AM, she was awakened from sleeping, she did not sleep all night long, she got up often, her heart, she never had this before and had 3 stents, her heart was beating out of her chest, like she had a drum going off, it was beating so fast and rapid and her head felt closed off and ears- she could feel heartbeats in her head, and this went on, she didn't want to call, she lives by herself on a farm, and thought to wait and see if it goes away, and about 7AM, it was basically really bad from 3AM to 5AM, and at 7AM it went away, the rapid heartbeat was so far throughout and her body was shaking, and chest was so she never had it happen before. At 8AM she called her family doctor office, she wanted to go and see them and she was told she wasn't in that day, they would send a note in the computer to get back with her. The doctor did not get back with her all day Friday, and then she felt ok Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, she had a couple tinge-y pains in her heart and shortness of breath, but her heart didn't feel like it was beating out of rhythm. Then Monday morning she called her heart doctor, he said he doesn't know, it doesn't sound to him like it was the Synthroid, since it was a small change of dose, but he didn't know about COVID but he hadn't heard it as being an after effect, but he said to come by 2:30PM on Monday, to be fitted with a heart monitor, which she wears on her heart and it listens 24/7, listens to her heart function, so she wore that, he said to bring it back on Monday and leave it in the office, and she did that, she wore it Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, she never had that really huge feeling in her in heart anymore, she thought it was a waste of time, then she got a call from the heart doctor on Tuesday, he asked how she was feeling, she said she was fine, and sorry if she caused a commotion and he said she has a heart problem now, she said she didn't feel anything, but her heart is beating erratically, and he doesn't know why she didn't feel it, he said she has SVG, she thinks, it is irregular heartbeats coming from the top of her heart and he says he will send in a prescription to the pharmacy to get a beta blocker, she thinks Metoprolol. The pharmacy just got the medicine in and she is sitting there waiting now. He told her a couple months ago, her heart sounds fine, there seemed to be nothing the matter. She asked if it was the COVID vaccine, he said he doesn't know, and she asked if she should take the second dose on 09Feb2021, he said no, he doesn't think he wants her to take it, she is going to see him in 2 weeks and will try the medicine, but she wanted to report what happened to her. Has Pfizer heard of anyone having rapid heartbeat after COVID vaccination. States she is overweight. Second dose is scheduled for 09Feb2021, at 1PM. Caller states going from 0.75mg to 0.88mg on Synthroid is a minimal adjustment, it can go up to the 200's for underactive thyroid, it's minimum, she is supposed to take it on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning with water. She has had underactive thyroid since she was 20 years old, so for 40 years, and had no problems with Synthroid before. The patient had irregular high blood pressure: it is high during the night and normal during the day, and if she would take, she had been going to physical therapy, she had a back problem, it came from a different thing, her knee is bone on bone, and they want her to get a knee implant, but when she limps on her knee it makes her back, it hurts from not walking straight, so she went to physical therapy, and what was causing high blood pressure, if she took Ibuprofen or Aleve, it would significantly increase her blood pressure, so she has a sensitivity to pain medicine, especially Ibuprofen and Advil, it increases her blood pressure, and often when she doesn't have it in her system, her blood pressure is much more normal. She does not have Ibuprofen, Aleve, Advil to provide lot/expiry, she is in her car. She is interested, she feels she won't take the second vaccine, she wants to see what they say, she also wants to ask how much protection with just the first shot? The action taken in response to the event for levothyroxine sodium was unknown. The outcome of the events heart was 'beating out of chest', 'head and ears closed down' was recovered in Jan2021, of other events was unknown.

She said the product packaging reads it soothes eyes, and she said the eye drops worked. Lot number: AC8K275, expiration date: Sep2021). She said when she looked in the mirror, she saw a large hive on her eye (clarified as multiple hives all around her right eye). And about 4PM, she realized that her lips felt puffy, so she repeated the Cimetidine, it kept them from getting worse. At 7PM, her eye felt worse. She had this real hive that surrounded her right eye, she took a picture so she could report it to the doctor. The patient have an appointment on Wednesday. At 7:30PM, the patient's lips were puffy, she repeated the Cimetidine again and took of the 200 mg, she takes 3 at a time, she mentioned she could take 4, but she takes 3. She said she took more Cimetidine at 8:30PM, and talked to a pharmacist, who told her to call Pfizer to report her reaction. She said she attempted to call Pfizer last night, but it was too late, clarifying Pfizer Medical Information was already closed for the day. The patient also reported that she had a little coughing spell at about 9PM, so she stayed up with her husband till 10PM because she didn't feel comfortable. The patient told her husband to wake her up every once in a while. The patient felt a little wheezy, she used both of her inhalers, she could hear the wheezing, she used the serevent diskus (Serevent Diskus 50 mcg Inhaler. She said she has been using the Serevent Diskus Inhaler for seasonal allergies for years and the inhaler works. She said she occasionally uses the Serevent Diskus for colds during the winter. She said she realized she was wheezing last night and thought she should use the Serevent Diskus.

That seemed to be okay, she went to bed, and had a good night no problems. She said she woke up this morning and felt better. She said she sounds a little gunky this morning, clarifying that was somewhat typical for her. The patient further reported that she got up at 6:30AM, she took a shower, she was having a rebound reaction, and wheezing, so she took 3 more Cimetidine and repeated the inhalers. She clarified while her symptoms worsened after the hot shower this morning, her symptoms are much less than yesterday (21Feb2021), saying she was aware of her symptoms today, and paying attention to them. She said her lips became puffy, and she was wheezy after the hot shower. She said she took Cimetidine and her inhalers again this morning to treat the rebound reaction. She decided to repeat again at about quarter to 10AM, she repeated again trying to keep it under control. In the meantime, she spoke to her doctors office, and they just said keep doing what she's doing, and if she get real bad, call 911 or go to emergency room (ER). The patient have an appointment, the patient's big concern was that she probably shouldn't get the second COVID shot. She read on (website), that there was a very rare, mild anaphylactic reactions. What caught her eye was that this takes place about 4 hours after the dose. This was when her symptoms began, lucky her. Her whole life has been allergy related. The patient don't know if celiac disease has anything with this. The patient wanted to know whether or not there was some way to take the shot without killing herself. She said she was not having breathing difficulty, she was just wheezy. She said she repeated the Cimetidine about a half hour before she called Pfizer today. She said she called her doctor's office this morning, and her doctor said for her to keep treating her symptoms as she had been doing. She said her doctor told her to call an ambulance or go to the emergency room if her symptoms happen to get worse. She said she read online that skin anaphylaxis (hives, itching, and swelling of the eyes, face, lips and throat) can occur with the COVID-19 Vaccine. She clarified she read the information about the COVID-19 Vaccine at (Website name). She said she read skin anaphylaxis was extremely rare and less than 1% of the population has the allergy, and those individuals should not get the COVID-19 Vaccine. She said she was upset because what she read probably means she can't get the second COVID-19 Vaccine shot. She said she read the skin anaphylaxis appears within 4 hours after getting vaccinated with the COVID-19 Vaccine. She said her symptoms occurred in almost the same amount of time as to what she read about a skin anaphylaxis reaction to the COVID-19 Vaccine. She said she has a regular check-up on Wednesday (24Feb2021) with her doctor, and will speak further to her doctor about getting the second COVID-19 Vaccine.

An 81-year-old female patient received second dose of bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, formulation: Solution for injection, Lot number: ER8732; Expiration Date: 31Jul2021), via an unspecified route of administration, on 26Mar2021 (age at vaccination: 81-year-old), as single dose for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history was reported as none (not heard anything from anybody). There were no concomitant medications; she did not take any medications because she did not know if it was permissible. The patient previously received first dose of bnt162b2 (Lot Number: EN6198 and Expiry: 30Jun2021) on 25Feb2021 and she did not experience side effects from that dose. The patient reported that, yesterday (26Mar2021) was fine, it did not hurt the arm and everything, however, at 2 o'clock this morning, on 27Mar2021, she felt her scalp itch like there were bugs on it. Her scalp was just itching like crazy, and it would not stop itching so she just had to run her fingers through there, got a little bit of alcohol and just kind of rubbed it in there but it was just something under the skin. She then experienced headache, muscle and joint pains, chills, and a fever. She took her temperature, and it was 99.8 so the next time she took it, and it was 100.8, but since then it had got down to 99.7, so she still felt like she had fever. She had a feeling that she was slow and just did not want to do anything and that was how she left the day because she did not know whether she was going to react to it or not but there was no swelling around the injection site, no nausea, did not have swollen lymph gland, heart beat was not fast, did not have a bad rash, dizziness (not clarified further if had dizziness or not), no weakness, maybe weakness from no sleep because she hardly had any sleep and also felt lethargic. She did not see any swelling of face or throat, so she was mainly worried about her throat, maybe her throat closing up. She mentioned that these not concerned her and as long as she could swallow, she did not panic and could bear it. She said that she had been through so many shots in her life and she never had a reaction like that before so she did not think she would be required to go to the emergency room or anything like that because she just did not feel, but she said yes that was important that she take care of this, but it was not emergency in her book. She was so hungry, she just had a muffin and was not vomiting yet, she did not think anything would happen like that, as she did not think it was serious. Reportedly, she did not throw up and she felt like it would be more bearable for her to have food in her belly. She told that, she purposely did not have any lab test done because she knew this COVID was coming up and she had to have 3 boosters that she needed to take, but she was going to take them 2 weeks after. She also reported that, she did not take corrective treatment for fever and itchy scalp, as someone told her not to take anything, Tylenol or an Aspirin, so she did not. The outcome for the events: fever and itchy scalp was recovering (It was improved throughout the day and she walked around the house a lot just, because she exercises), and the outcome was unknown for the rest of the events. No follow-up attempts are possible. No further information is expected.

Current status reviewed with resident staff. I have reviewed pertinent physician documentation, laboratory and radiographic data. I have initiated therapies based upon this reviewed In brief 82-year-old woman with history of COPD, mediastinal mass status post VATS with benign thymoma with local recurrence presented with respiratory tract symptoms since 6 days prior to admission COVID testing is positive. In the emergency room she was noted be hypoxemic requiring 15 L of supplemental oxygen to maintain oxygen saturations. She is currently on high-flow feels much improved. I concur with exam as per Pulmonary fellow. Laboratories and imaging reviewed in detail. Impression COVID-19 infection COVID-19 pneumonia Severe hypoxemic respiratory failure requiring high-flow oxygen Thrombocytopenia which is new since 2016 and a poor prognostic sign History of benign thymoma with local recurrence COPD with exacerbation Doubt bacterial pneumonia Recommendation: Remdesavir 5 days Corticosteroids. Optimum dosing induration of corticosteroids has yet to be fully defined. Decadron 6 mg daily is reasonable however if develops progressive disease in the next 24 hr would escalate corticosteroids and would also add IL 6 inhibitor Additional minerals and vitamin supple role is unclear but probably benign If thrombocytopenia worsens may need alternative anticoagulation. Would check venous Dopplers Supplemental oxygen for saturations greater than 88% Daily PPI unless anticoagulation intensified then would go to q.12 hours Would favor discontinuing antibiotics

After 2nd vaccination - patient was having trouble breathing whenever she worked out in the yard doing minor task such as raking leaves/gumballs. She had 3 or more episodes of feeling light-headed and stopping activity and walking into living room and sitting. Was able to catch breath and didn't want to go to hospital in any of these cases. However on March 8 at 3pm, she felt light-headed but on her way back to her living room, her breathing was disrupted. Her breaths were cut short and she was not receiving much air into her lungs. The breaths were shorter and shorter until she wasn't receiving hardly any air into her lungs. Her face turned blue. She passed out. She had CPR administered about 30 seconds after passing out. Ambulance arrived about 1 minute after passing out. EMT crew worked on her for 18 minutes and was ready to contact coroner when they got a heartbeat. She was taken to hospital on March 8. She was transferred to another hospital later than night. She was sent home for hospice (still unconscious) on March 16 or 17. She passed morning of March 19. Death certificate states cause of death was lack of oxygen to the brain, but no determination was made to what caused her breathing problems, which caused the lack of oxygen to her brain. EMT crew said her symptoms were very similar to blood clot in lungs. Hospital ruled out a blood clot. They also downloaded data from the pacemaker and ruled out A-Fib as the cause. Pacemaker data had indicated a mild event around 3pm on March 8 and sent a shock to her heart but nothing unusual. I believe the hospital also ruled out another cause or two, but never did determine the cause.

It said take all 6 that evening, but she took 2 then read and it said not to take with any vaccine. She stated that the nurse knew how she stressed she wanted the vaccine, and so she had the COVID vaccine. She just had the two steroids, and she said she wanted to wait until Mar2021 until she considered getting immune therapy, but the nurse booked her for 26Feb2021, and she had her second vaccine from Pfizer scheduled on 19Feb2021 one week apart. She asked if that is too soon, and does she need to put off immune therapy again. She read it is 2-3 weeks between, she wanted to have this verified. Patient stated she supposed to take 6 steroids then 5 and so on. She took 2 pills then as she was reading information regarding the vaccine, she did not take anymore. Last week is when she took the two steroids, she won't take them. She called a pharmacist, who said do not take them. The doctor's office, the nurse, gave them, after she told them she would have the vaccine. She stated she was furious, but she was getting this all the way down the line. She put the steroids away, she said she was not taking them, she talked to someone in the medical field and told her how she felt, and she agreed. Patient asked if it will be ok to have the immune therapy at that time and soon after getting the vaccine if it would be effective. She mentioned that at her age she is more concerned that she gets that vaccine and she wants to delay having the immune therapy until March given the horrible reaction she had before. She tried and tried to have this conversation with her doctors, but she does not have all that technology and they are only offering remote appointments. Patient stated that she had no problems from the first dose of the vaccine stating she did not even feel the needle. She has been exactly an hour on the phone. The patient stated that she was losing her breathe after speaking at this time during the call on 05Feb2021. She also stated she is short of hearing (onset date unknown).

My mother called me when she was going to get her second vaccination. She was alive and well and living independently at her home. She could walk, talk, make her own food, wash and dry her own clothes and take her own baths. After taking the second vaccination she went down hill. She became sicker and sicker and eventually she started coughing up blood. She decided to go to the hospital, another Hospital of facility. I don't know what the treatment was at that hospital but she was soon transferred to facility and that is where I was notified she was in the hospital and visited her there. After arriving they intubated her and said she had blood clots in her brain and heart. When I saw her after she transferred from Hospital to the Hospital I noticed one arm was swollen. Her legs were as they have been for the last 20 years and looked okay to me--no discoloration other than her regular discoloring at one right ankle and the same old same old slight swelling in the left ankle. The doctors and nurses were putting the blame on her legs but you could tell things were happening else where. But as she got worse and worse at the hospital her right arm become more and more swollen with dark bruises appearing--the hospital staff took pictures. The left arm continued to swell and did not look normal at all. She apparently had bleeding in her left lung from a blood clot. She had three areas of her brain that add clots and some bleeding. She was constipated and gaseous when they cleaned her. They didn't treat her constipation which made being intubated worse because I feel that caused her intestines to swell, thus she also had bleeding in her intestines. My mother died on March 17, 2021 at hospital in ICU. I was told they could not treat the blood clots because of the bleeding in her lung, intestines and brain.

progressive shortness of breath; hypoventilation; dysphagia; severe asthenia; mild upper abdominal pain; inability to eat; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable physician. An 83-year-old female patient received the second dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 MRNA VACCINE), via an unspecified route of administration on 14Feb2021 (at the age of 83-years-old) as a single dose for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history included right partial nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) in the remote past, hypertension, obstructive sleep apnea, hypothyroidism, morbid obesity, motion sickness, unspecified allergy as the patient cannot tolerate anything but paracetamol (TYLENOL), acute on chronic respiratory failure secondary to centrilobular emphysema.

The patient previously took paracetamol (TYLENOL). The patient previously received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 MRNA VACCINE; Lot number: EL3247) on 22Jan2021 (at the age of 83-years-old) in the left arm and experienced difficulty breathing, ground glass opaque lung problem, weak, nausea, "pain on rt.side waist around to back, down to lower belly", slight temp almost 100. On an unspecified date in Feb2021, the patient presented to the hospital with progressive shortness of breath and inability to eat for two days. The patient reportedly received the second dose of BNT162B2 four days prior to coming to the emergency room (ER). In the ER, the patient reported severe asthenia, mild upper abdominal pain and dysphagia, all as of an unspecified date. The patient underwent a CTA in the ER, on Feb2021, which showed no acute pulmonary embolism, or no ground glass infiltrates. The patient was admitted to the hospital on 21Feb2021 at 17:51 for management of worsening shortness of breath. Due to the patient's acute on chronic respiratory failure secondary to centrilobular emphysema and obesity, hypoventilation (as of an unspecified date in Feb2021) was further complicated by obstructive sleep apnea, thus, the patient was admitted to "MedSurg". The patient did not present with COVID-19 or COPD. The BMP was 226 at the time of admission. The patient was started on supplemental oxygen and additionally started on CPAP at night. She was seen by a pulmonologist who recommended Salmeterol Xinaf/ fluticasone (ADVAIR). Pulmonology also recommended to work-up any underlying unaddressed coronary artery disease contributing to the patient's shortness of breath. The patient underwent an echocardiogram on Feb2021 with regadenoson (LEXISCAN) for her shortness of breath which was within normal limits. As the patient additionally reported dysphagia at the time of admission, she was evaluated by a speech and swallow evaluation specialist as well as a gastroenterologist. A GI swallow series was recommended which the patient underwent on Feb2021 and was found to have no active signs of oropharyngeal or esophageal dysphagia. The patient additionally underwent a physical exam on 24Feb2021 at 08:00 with the following results. Vital signs: Temp: 98.2, Pulse: 69, Resp: 17, B/P (MAP): 98/62 (74), Pulse Ox: 96, O2 Delivery: Nasal cannula, O2 flow rate:2.00. HEENT: Pupils equal round reactive light accommodation, no lymphadenopathy noted, neck vens were apple. CVS: S1-S2 normal, no appreciable murmur rub or gallop noted. Respiratory: Good Inspiratory effort, good air entry bilaterally, no rhonchi, Rales or wheezes heard. Gl: Abdomen soft, nontender nondistended, bowel sounds heard, no organomegaly detected. Extremities: Bilateral lower extremities Shaw no edema, bilateral dorsalis pedis 2+, skin appeared intact. Neurological: Patient alert and oriented x3, strength 5x5 in all 4 extremities, no signs of focal neurological deficits. Skin: No clear breakdown or rashes noted. The patient was being discharged home on 24Feb2021 at 08:04 with a CPAP machine. The patient was prescribed Cefuroxime axetil (CEFTIN) 250mg Tablet orally twice a day; Salmeterol Xinaf/ fluticasone (ADVAIR) 250-50 diskus 1 puff twice a day for progressive shortness of breath and hypoventilation. The patient had been advised to follow-up with a pulmonologist for an outpatient pulmonary function test. The clinical outcome of progressive shortness of breath, hypoventilation, inability to eat, dysphagia, severe asthenia and mild upper abdominal pain was unknown. The reporting physician considered that BNT162B2 had no causal effect on the events reported. Information on the lot/batch number has been requested.; Sender's Comments: In agreement with the HCP reporter, the reported events do not appear to be related to the subject vaccine. The events likely represent intercurrent medical conditions, possibly associated with the patient's history of emphysema. This case will be reassessed upon receipt of follow-up information. 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.

Six days after the second dose of Pfizer I started experiencing shortness of breath so I went to the ER and took a chest x-ray and had fluid in my lungs. Doctors discovered I had Atrial Fibrillation. In January I had an Echo Cardiogram and none of the previous described diagnoses were present then. I was admitted; doctors attempted to shock my heart back into rhythm several times but were unsuccessful. Therefore, I was put on Eliquis (5mg) and a water pill to get rid of the fluid in my lungs (and swollen ankles). I was hospitalized for 9 days where I was evaluated through numerous tests. Eventually it was suggested that I undergo the Watchman's Procedure to get off blood thinners. Everything went well with that surgery on Thursday May
