About 1 week following first Pfizer vaccination, I began having achiness in left leg and thought this was possibly from sitting in a chair without enough cushion. I simply could not get leg comfortable. Over a couple days duration the leg continued to be achy and slightly swollen. On December 23rd at night I awoke due to such discomfort in leg and could not get comfortable enough to go to sleep. I went to ED where I was examined and found to be mildly short of breath and in pain. Ultrasound of leg showed large upper leg DVT. CT of chest showed submassive Pulmonary Horseshoe Embolus.

Per triage notes on 4/21/21: Pt had his 2nd COVID vaccine today at 0800. At 0900 developed lip swelling. Took two doses of Benadryl and has now developed chest tightness and throat swelling. Per doctor's notes: Patient is a very pleasant 60-year-old gentleman who comes in for evaluation after a possible allergic reaction today, possibly related to a second dose of Pfizer Covid vaccine that he got at 8 AM this morning. About an hour later he started to feel flushed. He felt like his face was warm and his ears were warm. He started to feel like the inside of his mouth had filled with a rubber ball. His tongue felt full and he started noticed progressively that he felt like he was having difficulty swallowing. States that he never actually had any lip swelling, contrary to the triage note, just felt funny in the interior of his mouth. Did feel like his tongue was slightly swollen, both based on the fact that it felt "thick" when he was talking, and on direct inspection, as well. Took 50 mg of Benadryl around the time that his symptoms started, and lay down to nap for a little while. When he woke up he was still feeling like he was having more difficulty swallowing. He also felt like his face was a little bit puffy, prickly under each eye. He also felt like he had a blotchy rash on his chest and upper back, which his wife corroborates. He felt like his chest was a little bit tight and that something was heavy on his chest, though he was not wheezing or acutely short of breath, per se. Took another 50 mg of Benadryl at about 2:15 PM, and presented to the emergency department for further evaluation. Currently still has a little bit of chest tightness and throat tightness. He feels flushed. Symptoms have not worsened, but they have not completely resolved, either. He has had anaphylaxis in the past and has had to be admitted to the hospital. And this was in relation to taking doxycycline, it sounds like. Patient presented again to the ED on 4/22/21 with the same symptoms. He was admitted with anaphylaxis. Per ED notes, also diagnosed with Angioedema, improved. Likely related to second covid vaccine. Cant rule out secondary to Lisinopril.

A few days after my second Covid vaccination I started experiencing fatigue, dizziness and shortness of breath. I also noticed the calf muscle in my lower right leg began to swell. The swelling continued to get worse and about a week later I noticed a significant amount of petechial hemorrhaging in my lower right leg. I started using an ice-pack in an attempt to reduce the swelling. I also sat/lay with my leg up (horizontal) as much as possible. On 6/28 I visited with my primary care doctor to seek help in addressing the swelling. My doctor sent me for an ultrasound which discovered a deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) and a CT scan which highlighted pulmonary embolisms in my lungs. I was admitted to hospital where I was treated with blood thinners; Note: I had my first shot on 4/13/21 and also experienced fatigue, dizziness and shortness of breath, but did not experience any swelling. As a result of feeling unwell I delayed getting my second shot.

A 61-year-old male patient received first dose of bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE; lot number and expiry date: unknown), via an unspecified route of administration on 14Jan2021 at single dose (left arm) for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history included Blood pressure high, Cancer (Two or less years ago; In remission, Taking medication to follow through with remission period), Allergies and sinus issues, covid virus (in July). The patient reported soreness in the arm (15Jan2021), fatigue (15Jan2021) and palpitations (16Jan2021) that he felt below the mouth and above the heart, calling it the esophagus area. He wanted to know if others had reported this same palpitation. The reporter further reported that he has a little bit of concern. He felt fine, had sore arm and fatigue that has gone away. Noticed lately, somewhere in his esophagus between his heart and mouth that he is feeling palpitations. Doesn't know if it's more indigestion. Stated it could be gas. Sometimes comes and goes, feels different than what he's already experienced. Wanted to double check if this has been heard of or anything similar to it. Clarified product as first dose of COVID-19 Vaccine. Received last Thursday. Received COVID-19 Vaccine in left arm on 14Jan2021 between 15:00 and 16:00. Both arms are sore, but only because other arm is injured. Pain level in injection arm was around 5-6 and he wasn't able to sleep on that side. Within the second day, 16Jan2021 in late afternoon soreness and fatigue was gone. Indigestion or Palpitations, feeling was happening again. They wanted to know if that is something he is experiencing from the COVID-19 Vaccine. Stated it doesn't appear to be related. It is around the esophagus. Stated it affects breathing. Stated maybe that has something to do with it. For the dose, they noticed it was a small amount of fluid in the tube that was injected into him. The outcome of the events soreness in the arm/sore arm and fatigue was recovered on 16Jan2021, while for other events was unknown. Information on the batch number/lot number has been requested.

Hospital course 1/31 ? 2/20/21 1/31 in ED pt was at home when children noticed his lips were blue, ems arrived and found him to be 50% on RA, on Non-rebreather pt got to 78%, covid on 01/26 Shortness of Breath 61-year-old male presents with EMS for evaluation of shortness of breath hypoxia. History is limited due to the patient's current clinical condition and so is primarily obtained from EMS. EMS reports that he tested positive for COVID-19 5 days ago. He began developing shortness of breath yesterday and his family called because his lips and fingers were blue today and he appeared short of breath. On EMS arrival he had a room air saturation of less than 50% so he was placed on nonrebreather with improvement in his saturation to 70% and he was transported to the emergency department. Patient does admit to shortness of breath. He denies any chest pain. He is noted to have a cast on his left ankle and said that he broke his left ankle on 23 December but has not had surgery. He denies any new pain or swelling of the leg. In the ED he was placed on 15L nasal cannula and NRB mask with improvement in SPO2 to low 90s. Additional work up revealed troponin of 1.35, lactic acid 5.8, and d-dimer 14.4. He received dexamethasone and was placed on heparin gtt. 1/31 admitted to ICU Acute hypoxic respiratory failure due to COVID-19 vs heart failure vs PE. CXR with bilateral hazy infiltrates more pronounced in the bases and left periphery and suspected multifocal pneumonia. At risk for PE given LLE immobility in the setting of COVID-19 with significantly elevated d-dimer. RISK of CTA outweighs benefit given AKI and iodine allergy. Continue with empiric treatment with heparin gtt. Admitted to ICU with SO2 in 60s-70s on 15L and NRB. Attempted 50L 95% FIO2 high flow and nasal cannula. Given lasix 40mg IV with good diuresis however SPO2 still remained low 80s with RR 40s and PO2 42 so the decision was made to intubate. Oxygenation improved following intubation, with further improvement following recruitment maneuver and increase in PEEP. FIO2 weaned to 90% with SPO2 remaining in mid 90s. Will continue to wean FIO2 as able. ARDS net protocol as much as possible. Consider prone ventilation and/or epoprostenol if unable to improve . VAP Bundle: HOB >30 degrees; Oral care per nursing standard and on DVT/PPI prophylaxis Sedation: Target Richmond Agitation and Sedation Scale (RASS) of 0 to -2 with propofol and fentanyl. Check baseline TG levels. COVID - 19: Convalescent plasma: Not indicated Steroids: Dexamethasone 6 mg / day for 10 days Remdesivir: Not indicated d/t AKI IL-6 inhibitor: Meets criteria for tocilizumab Systemic AC: Heparin gtt. No signs of bleeding (Platelets and Hb stable). Antibiotics: Start 3 and 7 day course of azithromycin and ceftriaxone, respectively. Elevated troponin Suspect demand ischemia d/t hypoxia; EKG does not show any ischemic changes AKI: Suspect d/t hypoxia in the setting of COVID infection. Urine output and electrolytes acceptable. Closed fracture of left ankle Suffered fracture following a fall on ice in December. Cast was placed on 12/30 by SOS. He was due to be re-evaluated this week for possible cast removal. Inhaled epoprostenol started Considered for ECMO but not initiated due to not a candidate Vasopressors required at times Antihypertensive infusion required at times severe hypoxia with position changes switched from heparin drip to enoxaparin prophylaxis 2/20 discharge summary 61 y/o male admitted to Hospital on 1/31 with hypoxia. He was diagnosed with COVID 19 5 days prior to admission, and had worsening respiratory status. He was intubated after arrival, and was on ventilator for the entire intervening time, until he was extubated on 2/20 at the time of transition to Comfort measures only. Prior to developing COVID 19, he had received his first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, as a member of the school system. He had a fractured L ankle after a fall on 12/31/20, and had a cast in place at the time of admission. He received Tocilizumab on 1/31, and underwent several cycles of prone positioning, beginning on 2/2. He completed a course of Decadron, he received Ceftriaxone and azithromycin beginning on admission, and completed a course of these. Anticoagulation with enoxaparin was utilized due to coagulopathy associated with COVID 19. Vasopressor support was required at times, as well as diuresis for fluid management. He required high levels of sedation to maintain ventilator synchrony, and high levels of ventilator support with high oxygen levels throughout his stay. Tracheostomy was being considered, but family decided that since he was not going to have good recovery, withdrawal of support, and allowing death was the appropriate choice for the patient and for them. He was extubated at 2100 on 2/20/2021. Death was pronounced at 2123 on 2/20/2021. Children were at bedside.

The next day I was very sick. It felt like someone had beaten me up. I spent most of the day lying down and drinking water. I tried to eat something and slept more. When I awoke, it felt like four huge needles piercing my lungs. I had to use my albuterol inhaler it was so bad. My symptoms are normally completely arrested by the use of Advair and Spiriva. The albuterol caused a dry heaving fit during which I expelled quite a bit of phlegm from my lungs. I felt better and the pain went away after that. Since then I've been suffering higher levels of chest congestion than is normal for me.

Difficulty breathing, like someone is choking me during inhale but no problems when exhaling. I didn't have this problem while recovering from my covid-19 infection earlier this year.

My dad suffered what I believe to be a blood clot in his lung on April 6th, directly related to the second pfizer covid vaccination. Though chronically ill, he was not sick at the time, which was 4 days after the vaccine. He walked up the stairs, collapsed at the top, walked again to the chair, collapsed and then made his way into the chair where he told me "I can't breathe." and then slumped over. My mom and I lifted his limp body up and noticed he was not breathing. We moved him to the floor and started life support measures. About 5 minutes later the paramedics arrived. They were eventually able to get his heart and breathing going again about 14 minutes later. He was moved to critical care. After it became apparent he suffered irreparable brain damage, I stopped the life support measures (ventilator) and he passed away shortly after on Friday the 9th. They were continuously removing blood from his lungs while he was there. There was no indication he would die prior to this incident. Though we attempted to tell the critical care doctors about his recent vaccination, they were not receptive to the suggestion that this may have caused the incident that proceeded his passing. My mom did try the heimlich and there were indications that he had breathed in vomit, but he had stopped breathing before this and therefore his cause of death WAS NOT aspiration. He also had fallen the day after the vaccination (Saturday) and the notes indicated his broken ribs were from the CPR measures but this is in error as well as he had broken his ribs in the fall. It is my opinion the broken ribs caused a bruise in the lungs, the vaccination caused excessive clotting, and when he was coughing shortly before the incident it loosened the clots that then caused a pulmonary embolism.

After patient took the first shot for 2 weeks, he suddenly could not breathe and hold his hist very tight in the morning while he was sleeping. My mom tried to wake him up, and he woke up and thought he was dreaming. He was fine during that time and we did not realize it might be caused by the vaccine. However, after patient took the second shot of the vaccine for 2 days, he suddenly could not breathe again and hold his fist very tight and bite his teeth very tight while he was sleeping. We try to do the CRP for him right away and called the ambulance at the same time. We try to wake him up, but he had no consciousness. And we realized that it might be the vaccine's problem.

After a few seconds caller's throat opened back up. States it was freaky. Never had that happen before. Throat opened back up, but scared patient real good.

Asthma is getting worse/ gasping/ short of breath; This is a spontaneous report received from two contactable consumers (one of them was the patient and the other was the patient's wife). A 63-year-old male patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, lot number EN6203), intramuscular in left arm on 09Mar2021 15:00 (at the age of 63-year-old) as 1st dose, single for COVID-19 immunization. Vaccine was not administered at military facility. The patient's medical history included diabetes from two years before the present report (2019), weakness in legs from three and half years before the present report (2017) and asthma from 2005 and ongoing (patient mentioned he had been sick with asthma for 16 years (2005), it was work related). No family history was provided. The patient's concomitant medications included prednisone 10 mg, oral from unspecified date in 2005 at 20 mg and ongoing, daily (reported as two daily), benralizumab (FASENRA, lot number mm0071 and expiration date Mar2022) 30 mg/ml injection, parenteral from unspecified date at 30 mg cyclic (reported as one ml by injection once every two months), both for asthma. No prior vaccinations within 4 weeks as well as no additional vaccines on same date of the Pfizer vaccine were administered. Patient stated that the literature stated not to take any other injections of any kind. He was on FASENRA for his severe asthma. It is a blocker of eosinophils. He was due to have it once every 2 months, but it was on the same time as the Pfizer shot so he didn't take it. His asthma was getting worse. He was gasping and short of breath. He had been on prednisone for 16 years from the time of this report (2005). He was on 20 mg he could boost to 35 mg so he could deal with his asthma (and not get the FASENRA shot). He was 15 days overdue for his FASENRA shot. He needed to wait 3 weeks after his first dose to get the 2nd dose and wait more week to get his FASENRA shot. Patient asked if he could get up on prednisone and why it did state not to take any injections during and after the vaccine. At this point the vaccine was more important. He also asked what the reason was and if it was stressing on the injections. That was his main conflict. Patient also asked if having not had side effects did it mean that the vaccine had not work. As per response provided it was stated that there was no information in the Pfizer-BioNtech COVID-19 vaccine prescribing information about a potential interaction or administration with FASENRA. Patient read not to take any injections because it might interfere with the vaccine. However, every two months he gets a FASENRA injection for severe asthma. He had it in his refrigerator for someone to administer to him at his house because he was afraid to go to the doctor or the hospital because of COVID. Reported his asthma started getting worse last week (Mar2021), he was unsure what day. He added he was on prednisone 20 mg and was still gasping for breath when he had to go up stairs. He added they also said there was concern about prednisone. He stated he might be able to stabilize if he went up on the prednisone. He added he was supposed to take his FASENRA injection about the same time as the vaccine and at the time of this report he was overdue for the injection. He added maybe he should just take it in a different arm. He was scheduled to receive the next dose of the vaccine on 30Mar2021. He added the FASENRA blocks eosinophils and he thought not having the FASENRA was contributing to his problem. He was asking what the prednisone did in relation to the vaccine because they asked him to wait longer and if he could take his FASENRA injection. He also asked if there were any medications he was not supposed to take with the vaccine. The event did not require emergency room or physician office visit. The outcome of the event was not resolved. No follow-up attempts are needed. No further information is expected.

He had Covid 19 on Thanksgiving 2020 and recovered fully. Even though he now had natural antibodies, his Doctor convinced him that he needed the so called Covid 19 vaccine "mRNA gene therapy". On 04/29/2021, he was injected with the so called vaccine and that was the beginning of the end. On 05/10/2021, he was admitted to the Hospital with irregular heartbeat and trouble breathing. The Hospital could not get him stabilized so they transported him to another Hospital. He was there a couple of weeks or so and was now having issues with his kidneys and liver. It appeared the spike proteins had started to battle the rest of his viable organs. The hospital had to transport him to a nursing home facility because his number of days in the hospital per insurance had run out. Then on the evening of 06/13 or 14/ 2021, he became violently ill. He was taken to hospital again and was subsequently transferred back to another Hospital. The Spike proteins had now gone into overdrive attacking all his major organs. His liver, kidneys, lungs and heart were being attacked by the spike proteins created by this deadly vaccine. He was put on 24 hour dialysis and then had to be put on a ventilator. He died 06/24/2021.

The first symptoms were a headache and then breathing problems. I was having more intense headaches that they were becoming more frequent. About 4 weeks ago I had a 10-day period of headaches, but I needed to seek medical attention. The doctor diagnosed me with cluster headaches. I also had elevated blood pressure which I had never had an issue with before. The doctor also wants me to have an MRI schedule to make sure there are no underlying physical issues causing the headaches. The medication i was prescribed is helping the pain but I am still getting the headaches.

1- Mild cough became severe associated with shortness of breath starting from second day. Since the symptoms were progressively worsening, on doctors advice took one course of Z Pack (Azythromycin) starting from Wednesday04/14. 2- Still having mild cough. 3- Having dry upper respiratory passages leading to choking sporadically (once or twice on some days day). 4- Vision getting poor noticeable with watery eyes, started to feel 3 to 4 days after getting first doze COVID19 vaccination. Consulted an eye specialist on 04/24, who believes the vision issue is due to cataract getting progressively worse. As far as I know, cataract does not gets worse over period of 3 to 4 days, so there is likely hood of some adverse effect of the COVID vaccination.

On 04/22/2021, a patient was determined to have pericarditis, possibly secondary to COVID-19 vaccination. The patient received his first COVID-19 vaccination (Pfizer) on 2/27/2021. The patient reported feeling poorly and presented to ER on 03/02/2021 with chest pain and dyspnea. He states the chest pain he is experienced this week is similar to the 2 episodes of chest pain he had after each of the two-step Pfizer COVID vaccination that he received in February 02/27/2021 and March 03/15/2021. He underwent a stress test on 03/11/2021 which did not show any reversible perfusion defects. Of note, the patient had COVID-19 back in October 2020 which manifested with night sweats, malaise for a few days and then cleared completely without any "long hauler" symptoms. The patient was treated with ibuprofen and colchicine. I did not find any evidence suggesting a relationship between pericarditis and covid-19 vaccination. In clinical trials, pericarditis was not statistically significantly different between treatment arms. Other potential causes of pericarditis include atrial fibrillation.

My husband who is 64 years old, was a previously in good health. Only history was mild cardiomyopathy diagnosed 12 years ago. And elevated blood pressure, which was normal with medications. He was very active, maintained a demanding full time job and was a great husband of 2 children. He received his 2nd dose of Pfizer on approximately 4/1/21. He didn?t complain of any side effect. However, on the morning of 4/27/21 he woke me up saying that he could not breath. We started driving to the hospital, however he got worse and we stopped at the fire station. They gave his oxygen and rushed him to the hospital. We came to hospital and when the fire truck was pulling in, I was told that my husband went into pulseless electrical activity. CPR was started and after approximately 5 minutes he regained pulse. He was taken to the ICU and therapeutic hypothetic protocol was completed. Since then, he is still requiring mechanical ventilation. He opens his eyes spontaneously, at times appears to obey small commands and is bedridden.

Shortness of Breath for few days after vaccine #1; after vaccine #2 shortness of breath increased along 10 day period, so I contacted PCP. Clinical exam, chest xray, blood work resulted D-Dimer level increase, so CT scan ordered. Result was lungs full of PE. Placed on Eliquis and referred to hematologist. Hematologist ordered deeper dive in blood work as well as echocardiogram, which displayed a widening in aortic root and ascending aorta, but no ventricular or valve damage. Dr. will continue to monitor and refer me to cardiologist. Other symptoms include unprovoked fatigue, some shortness of breath, a strange smell of burning plastic and cramping of the upper part of my feet, only at night. Never tested posit positive for COVID with wife and son both had "undocumented" COVID in January and March 2020. They both have antibodies (confirmed with blood testing) and I did not have antibodies. Our physician would not authorize a test for COVID at the time of their symptoms as tests were so coveted and not authorized widely at the times of their illnesses. I really want someone to come forward and confirm the causation and correlation of my symptoms to the vaccine, because I am otherwise an extremely health and active 64 year old with no preexisting or predisposed conditions to widespread PE...not just a clot or two...it is wide spread throughout all lobes of my lungs!

Relevant medical history included heart disease ongoing from 1997 (this happened in 1997 and the patient had been living with it for a little while), heart attack, pacemaker defibrillator because of cardiac arrest (in 2011), atrial fibrillation (diagnosed a little while, he was not sure and had been in and out of the hospital and to heart doctor quite a bit) and hypertension. The patient was administered with first shot of BNT162b2 (Lot number EW0153) in left shoulder on 16Mar2021 11:00AM (at the age of 64-year-old). Concomitant medications were not reported. On 16Apr2021 after the second dose, the patient was fine. There were no reactions after the first dose, but the second dose two days after he started developing a cough and fever. He thought it was a side effect but then ended up in the ER with pneumonia. They gave him antibiotics and sent him home. He went through the antibiotics and went back because he was still sick and not responding. They gave him more antibiotics and sent him home. He went through that batch and ended up really bad so he had to call an ambulance a few weeks later. He was diagnosed with MRSA Pneumonia and stayed in the hospital for 5 days. Then, he was discharged. He went back to the ER again a few days later because he did not seem to be improving. He was coughing and was weak. He was given another batch of antibiotics. He did not know if it was from the shot or what - he was healthy until then. The patient added that she lost 20 pounds and confirmed that it was following the vaccine. Two days after the vaccine, maybe it was 19Apr2021, he had a fever and it was now gone (exact dates were unknown). Cough happened at the same time of the fever but it was not as bad, and then progressively got worse. His lungs started filling up. They thought it was COVID. by the x-rays it looked like COVID lung but they took a sample and it was MRSA (exact dates were unknown). His admission was 18May2021 and was for acute respiratory failure with hypoxia. Discharge paperwork said acute chronic combined systolic diastolic congestive heart failure but he has had that for many years. It also stated primary hypertension but he has had that. The paperwork sayid pneumonia due to MRSA and pneumonia due to unspecified organism. He was hospitalized 18May2021 through 23May2021 with pneumonia and the reason he was hospitalized was because he could not breathe. Lost 20 pounds: after he started getting sick from the beginning of it all, he was coughing and losing weight and all that. It may not be quite 20 pounds, maybe 17, but he just knew that he was down quite a bit. He was 160s now, he was high 170s before (as reported). Treatment included Lasix and all kinds of different antibiotics. They were giving him, he did not know what it was, at first. Then, they narrowed it down and once they found out it was MRSA they gave him Clindamycin he believes. Investigations: they did CT scans, chest X-rays, and labs but he does not know any information. Each time they did a chest x-ray, when he went to get a chest x-ray, each one was worse all the way up to when he was admitted. When he went, they did a bronchial scope or whatever, he was not sure, and they saw lots of swelling and infiltrate. He did not know what this meant, stuff was infiltrating into the tissue and it was not just in the airways. He added it looked like ground glass pneumonia is what they said. The patient added that he was usually pretty active and cannot do anything anymore. He had three or four Covid tests, all negative, no additional details provided. Outcome of the events was unknown. Follow-up attempts are needed. Further information is expected.

I was in the waiting room for observation. Symptoms started while in the waiting room. The nurse who monitored the patients saw my reaction. She had to hold me under my arm to help me walk back to the nurses who gave the vaccines. When I arrived, my vision got black and I passed out. I passed out from the reaction to the vaccine. I have a history of Anaphylaxis, I carried episode pens for years. I forgot my episode pens that evening but I carried my own benadryl. I stopped the reaction by drinking liquid Benadryl.

myocardial infarction; Fluid; Shortness of breath; Chest pain; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable nurse (patient's wife). A 64-year-old male patient received the second dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Lot Number: EW0180), via an unspecified route of administration, administered in left arm on 11Jun2021 10:00 (64-year-old at time of vaccination) as single dose for COVID-19 immunization. The patient's medical history included diagnosed allergies, compromised immune status, respiratory illness, genetic/chromosomal abnormalities, endocrine abnormalities (including diabetes) and obesity. There was no family medical history relevant to adverse event. There were no concomitant medications. The patient previously received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Lot Number: EW0186), via an unspecified route of administration, administered in left arm on 21May2021 (64-year-old at time of vaccination) for COVID-19 immunization. There were no vaccines administered on same date with the Pfizer vaccine considered as suspect. There were no other vaccinations within four weeks prior to the first administration date of the suspect vaccine. The patient experienced chest pain on 17Jun2021, fluid and shortness of breath on 25Jun2021, and myocardial infarction on an unspecified date. Patient's wife (a registered nurse, recently retired) just wanted to report this. She can't say that it is the vaccine or anything. Her husband received the second COVID-19 Vaccine on 11Jun2021 and he died at the emergency room 2 weeks later of a cardiac event. She couldn't do the report online because it was making her the one she was reporting on. Chest pain: She took him to the emergency room on 25Jun2021. He had been having chest pain that he reported to her that Monday before. He told her that it actually started the Thursday before on 17Jun2021. He had some chest pain that felt a little better over the weekend, then Monday it was worse. He wasn't a complainer, but he was obviously having chest pain. He was very stubborn and so he just kind of let it progress and it got worse during the week. He wouldn't go to the doctor. She kept telling him she read about myocarditis mostly with adolescent males. She thought what if it is something like that. Time of Onset of Chest pain: He reported it on Monday that he had chest pain on Thursday. She became aware when he woke up at 06:30 on 21Jun2021 and she knew something was wrong when he went for the Ibuprofen. Fluid and shortness of breath: The day she took him to the emergency room the chest pain had worsened and he had fluid and shortness of breath. The fluid and shortness of breath started on 25Jun2021. Death: He died on 25Jun2021. The cause of death was a myocardial infarction. They didn't do an autopsy. The reason they gave for not being able to do an autopsy was they were overwhelmed with drug overdoses and homicides. Indication for COVID-19 Vaccine: He didn't want it, but he needed to go back to the office and didn't want to wear a mask. Adverse events required a visit to emergency room. Investigations: She doesn't have his medical records yet. Essentially they were recording him. She can't believe she got him in in a wheelchair. Immediately they were doing resuscitation efforts. Relevant Tests was reported as none. The outcome of myocardial infarction was fatal; outcome of other events was unknown. The patient died on 25Jun2021. No autopsy was performed. The cause of death was a myocardial infarction. Causality: the reporting nurse has no opinion. She just thinks that the patient didn't randomly die any of his other 64 years. It may be a coincidence.; Sender's Comments: The event myocardial infarction with fatal outcome is considered unrelated to suspect product (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Lot Number: EW0180). The compromised immune status, respiratory illness, genetic/chromosomal abnormalities, endocrine abnormalities (including diabetes) and obesity may explain as alternative cause.; Reported Cause(s) of Death: Myocardial infarction

The patient was hospitalized for congestive heart failure from 10Jul2021 to an unknown date. The patient underwent lab tests and procedures which included blood pressure: keeps spiking in Jul2021. The outcome of the events was unknown. Clinical course: The caller was a pharmacist calling in regards to her brother. The caller did not know if this has any correlation. The callers brother received the first dose Pfizer Covid Vaccine, a day later all the typical side effects of flu like symptoms occurred. Had to get up in the middle of the night to raise arms because couldnot breathe: The caller's brother had to get up in the middle of the night to raise his arms because he couldnot breathe. The caller states this occurred the second night after the caller received the first dose Pfizer Covid Vaccine. The caller did not know specifically what time this occurred. The caller told her brother to go to a hospital. The callers brother had every excuse not to go the hospital. Later that evening, the caller called her brother to check on him. The caller's brother was having more symptoms, the brother had dizziness. This was not just typical Pfizer Covid Vaccine symptoms. Ended up in the hospital with congestive heart failure: The patient ended up in the hospital with congestive heart failure. The hospital is still having trouble, this is the patient's second or third day in the hospital. The hospital is having trouble maintaining the patients blood pressure, the blood pressure keeps spiking. This could be coincidental. The caller is asking if anything different is presenting after receiving the Pfizer Covid Vaccine? The caller would like to present this information to the doctor if so. Is there any correlation at all? The caller states she knows there have been incidents of myocarditis, but the caller's brother is not a youngster, the patient is going to be 65 in less than a month. Received first dose vaccine, a day later all the typical side effects of flu like symptoms occurred: The caller states this occurred after the patient received the first dose Pfizer Covid Vaccine. The symptoms have gone away after the third day. The caller has not asked the specific question if the patient recovered with lasting effects or recovered completely and does not know. Had to get up in the middle of the night to raise arms because couldnot breathe: When asked when this began the caller states her brother must have had the first dose Pfizer Covid Vaccine on Friday, 09Jul2021, or it could have been Thursday, 08Jul2021. The caller called the patient on 10Jul2021. When asked if this was ongoing or went away, the caller replies the patient continued with other symptoms that happened. The caller was concerned the brother may have had an emboli, all sorts of things. The caller advised the brother to go to the hospital. Had dizziness: When asked when the patient's dizziness began, the caller states she can not answer that exactly. The caller clarifies the dizziness occurred after the patient received the first dose Pfizer Covid Vaccine. The patient had only received one dose of the Pfizer Covid Vaccine so far. The caller is not sure if the patient has been advised to receive the second dose Pfizer Covid Vaccine or whether this is something totally different. When the patient was having flu like symptoms he was also having dizziness. The dizziness became different the second day at night time at 1930 pacific time, the patient told the caller he went out to the car and got so dizzy and light headed and couldn't breathe. The patient was bringing groceries inside and got winded. It was not normal. Ended up in hospital with congestive heart failure: The caller states the patient was hospitalized yesterday 12Jul2021, the caller then clarifies, no it was Saturday night, 10Jul2021 the patient was admitted to the hospital. The patient is still hospitalized at this time. The caller states she asked the cardiac nurse at the hospital and the cardiac nurse says she thinks this has nothing to do with the Pfizer Covid Vaccine. The caller is not sure and has heard so many different reports. Causality: When asked causality for each symptom, the caller replies, she certainly thinks the flu like symptoms are related to the first dose Pfizer Covid Vaccine. The caller does believe something must have happened to cause his condition to spiral down hill. The patient had some symptoms prior to receiving the first dose Pfizer Covid Vaccine but these were all manageable and not a problem. The caller doesn't know if the patient having the flu like symptoms may have put extra stress on the patient's heart. Had to get up in the middle of the night to raise arms because couldn't breathe: The caller considers this life threatening. Had dizziness: The caller states when the patient had dizziness at night, the caller considered it life threatening. The patient had other dizziness and blurred vision and inability to breathe and it was clearly cardiac issues. blurred vision: The caller does not know when this began. The caller states when her brother called at 1930 on 10Jul2021, that is when he had the blurred vision, the caller does not know if the caller had the blurred vision before and can't answer that question. The caller does not know if the blurred vision is ongoing at the moment. The caller knows the blurred vision had mostly gone away, the caller does not know if any of the blurred vision has come back, she believes it is gone. The caller considers the blurred vision life threatening. Date of first dose: The caller is unable to provide the date the patient received the first dose Pfizer Covid Vaccine. The caller states she would have to be in touch with the patient. It was either 08Jul2021 or 09Jul2021. ~ Information on the lot/batch number has been requested.; Sender's Comments: Based on known drug safety profile, there is reasonable possibility of causal association between the event headache, fatigue, joint pain, muscle pain and the suspect drug BNT162B2.

Resident was vaccinated on 12/31/20. Then on 1/14/21 he tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 on routine surveillance PCR testing. Another resident on the same hall was COVID positive on 1/11/21. Results of the PCR test were obtained on 1/16/21. He appeared asymptomatic at that time. Given his COVID positive status, all aerosol generating procedures had to be stopped. Overnight on 1/16/21 into 1/17/21, he had the onset of acute respiratory failure and was transported to the hospital. Per notes, he was put on BiPAP for several hours, but his CO2 level did not improve. Per prior advance directives completed with the resident and his two brothers, he had DNR/DNI orders. The hospital physician spoke with his brother and the decision was made to move to comfort care. He was discharged to inpatient hospice and died around 4pm on 1/18/21. This outcome does not appear to be vaccine-related, but death from COVID-19 infection is listed as a reportable event following COVID-19 vaccination.

Have had a significant change to the way my long standing allergies manifest themselves. Since early childhood they would manifest with congestion and wheezing - typical asthmatic reaction to allergies. Now I am getting rashes and most importantly watery eyes. I have never had watery eyes except in the most severe allergenic reactions like from peanuts or shellfish (anaphylactic shock) - and only for very short periods. Now I am getting watery eyes. from even minor food and pollen allergenic reactions. While not with the frequency of the watery eyes I am also getting rashes. The watery eyes are to the point when I wake up in the morning my eyes are glued shut. I never have had these reactions before. Note: I waited several months to report this because I was hoping it was random events - the events are not random and nothing I have experienced in my 67 years before the vaccination. With the long term health problems I have I am keenly aware of my allergenic reactions. I have always had them but never before with watery eyes and occasional rashes.

Shot administered Wednesday morning. Sore arm, but not particularly bad. Thursday and Friday I was feeling a little fatigued, and took a nap (very unusual for me) Friday. That night i felt a little strange, light-headed. Saturday around 10 AM I developed a moderate headache, and then was mildly short of breath, and most concerning, a little bit of afib. My heartbeat was steady (nothing like the afib I first had about seven years ago or so), but I missed about seven or eight beats in a minute (my pulse is usually around 60). That was not regular. My wife thought I might be having a migraine (I have had about five in my life), but if so it was very mild. On her advice I had about a quart of water over a couple of hours, and both symptoms resolved. Currently fine.

After 3 hours I called my primary care physician's office and they suggested I call 911 and go to the Emergency Department to be sure I was not having a heart attack. Multiple EKGs, a chest xray, and blood tests revealed that my heart was in good shape. I have continued to have very slight pressure in that area, but it is occasional and is almost gone. Even after 5 days since the vaccination, I am experiencing side effects although they have reduced in severity.

diagnosed with blood clots in the lungs; Coughing; diagnosed with pneumonia; She thinks that he had a blood clot in his leg that travelled. He was having leg pain, so he probably had a blood clot then; really, really sleeping; really bad leg pain; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable pharmacist (patient's wife). A 68-year-old male patient received the second dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, lot number: ER8729, initially reported as FR8729 then stated it is an E) via an unspecified route of administration on 03Apr2021 around 10:00 or 11:00 am (68-year-old at time of vaccination), at single dose, for COVID-19 immunization. The patient's medical history included high blood pressure (also reported as family medical history), ongoing eurofibromatosis (Has had all of his life), varicose veins, overweight, rheumatoid arthritis. Concomitant medications included ongoing etanercept (ENBREL) for rheumatoid arthritis (Has been on a few years but does not remember how long exactly). The patient previously received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, lot number: EN6205) via an unspecified route of administration at arm on 13Mar2021 (68-year-old at time of vaccination) for COVID-19 immunization. The patient previously received flu vaccines in Oct2021 (67-year-old at time of vaccination). There were no prior vaccinations within 4 weeks. There were no additional vaccines administered on same date of the Pfizer suspect. The wife states her husband (patient) got 2 doses of the Pfizer vaccine. The middle of last month, he was complaining of really bad leg pain (from middle of May2021). He does have varicose veins and is on Enbrel and is overweight. He was really, really sleeping. She told him that he really needed to go see a doctor. The wife states she is in a rehab facility and is a pharmacist who worked at the hospital for over 34 years, mentions licenses in (states name). The wife stated she sent him to urgent care and they said he had varicose veins but had no problems with his leg. They did diagnose him with pneumonia. They sent him home on an antibiotic, Doxycycline 100mg, she didn't actually see the prescription, it was either for 7 or 10 days. He was down to one dose the day before yesterday. While he was at home, she heard him coughing (from 03Jun2021) and he couldn't stop coughing for about 5 minutes. She asked him when his follow up was and he told her not until Friday. She said he needed to see somebody so yesterday, he went to urgent care again. Three hours later they transferred him by ambulance to the hospital, he had blood clots in his lungs (from 03Jun2021). She is highly suspect of the Covid vaccine because he has never had problems like blood clots before. He was just admitted on the day before reporting (hospitalization for coughing and blood clots in the lungs from 03Jun2021 and ongoing). The wife is thinking maybe they misdiagnosed him approximately 10 days ago. She thinks that he had a blood clot in his leg that travelled. He was having leg pain, so he probably had a blood clot then, and they misdiagnosed him as pneumonia. The wife does not remember exact date but that it was in middle of May. His first trip to urgent care was 10 days before going to the hospital. Coughing started the same night, she asked him to go to the doctor Thursday morning and they sent him from urgent care to the hospital. He was admitted to the hospital and is still there now. Adverse events did not result in physician office visit; coughing and blood clots in the lungs resulted in emergency room visits; patient went to urgent care twice, second time was sent to emergency room via ambulance. Tests: They have been doing tests on him all day. They did an echocardiogram on the day of reporting (on 04Jun2021) and they are doing blood work on him. The wife does not know the results, she is a rehab facility a half a mile away. Treatment: They gave him some kind of shot. He doesn't give medication to himself. She has no idea, maybe something like Lovenox or something like that but she just doesn't know. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of the event coughing and blood clots in the lungs and included some kind of shot; therapeutic measures were taken as a result of the event pneumonia and included antibiotic, Doxycycline. The outcome of the events was unknown. Causality assessment: The pharmacist (patient's wife) states she was highly suspect, as soon as they told him it was a blood clot in his lungs. Relatedness was assessed as related for all events.; 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 reported serious events cannot be totally 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.

Patient was in to receive his second dose of the COVID vaccine. He reported no known issues after his first dose and remained in the pharmacy for the recommended 15 minute observation period following the vaccine without any problems.
