1 cm mass; inflamed supraclavicular lymph node on left side/nodule; This is a spontaneous case received from a contactable consumer (patient's mother). A 16-year-old female patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 MRNA VACCINE) via an unspecified route of administration on 19Mar2021 at 11:30 (at the age of 16-years-old) as a single dose on the left side for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history was none. The patient was not pregnant at the time of vaccination. The patient did not receive any other vaccines within 4 weeks prior to the vaccine. The patient had not been diagnosed with COVID-19 prior to the vaccine. The patient did not take any concomitant medications. The patient did not have any allergies to medications, food, or other products. On 25Mar2021, the patient experienced an inflamed supraclavicular lymph node on left side (same side as vaccine administration). On 26Mar2021, the patient visited her primary care physician (PCP) as a result of the event. The physician documented a 1 cm mass. The patient was referred to another doctor for follow-up. On 07Apr2021 the patient saw another doctor who reviewed the case. The patient underwent lab tests and procedures which included a COVID-19 nasal swab on 25Mar2021 with result of negative, chest X-ray on 26Mar2021 with results of "clear" and lab work on 07Apr2021 with results of "clear." The patient did not receive any treatment for the events. The patient was told to follow-up in six weeks if the nodule was not gone. The outcome of inflamed supraclavicular node was not recovered.

Patient started swelling in the left hands on Saturday May 08th and inflammation in the bowel during Monday morning May 10th. She was not able to eat and had nausea. Patient stayed at Hospital until May 13th and got many exams as endoscopy and colonoscopy and did not find any reason for such inflammation. Also, blood exams were ok.

12 hours post vaccine she had severe myalgia, rash on both arms and legs, headache, nausea, stomach pain, and mild swelling in legs. Over the next 48 hours the rash darkened and spread to the entire body causing pain in her skin. The myalgia became nearly unbearable and both Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen didn't put a dent in the pain. One side of her face swelled so that one eye could only partially open. The nausea and stomach pain worsened so that she couldn't eat. Headache became intense. By 48 hours post vaccine she became delirious - her speech was slurred and difficult to comprehend. She would fall asleep for a few minutes and wake up unaware of where she was or what was happening. She never got a fever but did have chills. Around this time I called a relative who is a doctor to seek advice and Diphenhydramine was recommended. Benedryl helped immensely. 30 minutes after taking it she could speak clearly, was more alert, pain became tolerable, and her appetite returned. Symptoms and swelling returned when the Benedryl wore off so she continued taking it every 4 hours for the next two days until it wasn't necessary any more. The myalgia, stomach pain and headache persisted for 7 days. At 8 days post vaccine (today) a mild headache, mild and intermittent stomach pain, and mild fatigue are her only remaining symptoms. Her pediatrician cannot see her until next week but we have an appt for the 22nd.

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

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

Eleven days later, she got another allergic reaction with blister on her arm, water filled blister; She got blister on the opposite arm of the injection, on her right arm; Diagnosed her with a skin disease that happens when your immune system is under attack; Her arm is now swollen around the blister; bullous pemphigoid; cellulitis; Had an allergic reaction; Itchiness; They gave her a high dose/received a higher dose of the vaccine; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer. A 17-years-old non-pregnant female patient received bnt162b2 (BNT162B2), dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm Left on 10Apr2021 at 12:00 (Batch/Lot Number: ew0153) as a single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included asthma seasonal only during allergy season. No episodes this year. The patient did not receive any other vaccines within 4 weeks prior to the COVID vaccine. Concomitant medications included Multivitamin/women's one a day gummies. The parent reported that her daughter had the vaccine done on 10Apr2021 and she had an allergic reaction that evening, she had itchiness. So, I contacted the pharmacist that she had an allergic reaction and she told me that they gave her a high dose and there were few patients who got the high dose. So, eleven days later, she got another allergic reaction with blister on her arm, water filled blister, I took her to an urgent care and they referred me to a dermatologist that diagnosed her with a skin disease that happens when your immune system is under attack (event captured as per verbatim). So, I went to her primary doctor and her primary doctor has put her on antibiotic because her arm is now swollen around the blister, so now, she is on ointment, antibiotic and vitamin d (treatment) to bring up her immune system and also she has to get her blood work done to check her immune system. She also stated that the reaction my daughter is now having and how her primary doctor is suggesting not to take her second dose because she highly thinks it is an allergic reaction to the vaccine." The outcome of the events was not recovered. Reported Event: Four hours after the injection on 10Apr2021 (Name) entire body began to itch and the top of mouth. The pharmacist was notified and at the time and further explained that (Name) was one of the patients that day who received a higher dose of the vaccine at the time of injection. The pharmacist did not notify me of how high the dosage was. So I cannot put the exact details on this report because I was not given that information by the pharmacist. I suggest the pharmacist be contacted for the exact mistaken dosage. The second side effect was on 21Apr2021 (Name) woke up with a water filled blister on her right arm which ruptured with a yellow liquid. We seeked medical attention on 21Apr2021 and 23Apr2021 from 3 different facilities. The outcome was (Name) being diagnosed with bullous pemphigoid and cellulitis.

Fever; Joint pain; facial and tongue swelling/broken out in a rash broken out in a rash that moved to her face and lips/anaphylaxis/daughter's eye started to swell; Serum sickness; elevated CRP; Hives/an allergic reaction/lip and face swelling; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (the mother) reported for her daughter. A 17-year-old female patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), via intramuscular, administered in left arm on 02Apr2021 10:00 (Batch/Lot Number: EN6207) as 2ND DOSE, SINGLE for covid-19 immunisation. Medical history included Colitis ulcerative from 2014 and ongoing, Genetic immune deficiency, additional Information for other conditions: Caller describes it as "22q". patient was born with this but wasn't actually diagnosed until patient was 11 years old. They checked with patient's Immunologist before getting the vaccine especially with her daughter's history. Thyroid disease from 2015 to an unknown date, additional Information for other conditions: patient didn't have a thyroid- her thyroid was removed. Concomitant medications included cetirizine; famotidine; montelukast sodium (SINGULAIR); and epinephrine (EPIPEN) all taken for an unspecified indication, start and stop date were not reported; aloe vera, pramocaine hydrochloride (ATARAX ANTI ITCH LOTION) taken for itching, swelling and hives, start and stop date were not reported. The patient took first dose of Pfizer COVID vaccine on 12Mar2021 10:00 (Lot: EN6207) for COVID-19 immunization and patient had no side effects after the first dose. No additional vaccines administered on same date of the Pfizer suspect. No prior vaccinations (within 4 weeks). The patient just saw her Immunologist and her Immunologist instructed her to report what is going on with patient. Caller clarifies patient's immunologist plans to call and report as well but also instructed her to call and report the side effects her daughter is experiencing. Her daughter was cleared to have the COVID vaccine. The caller explains they always check with her immunologist because of her daughter's immune issues. Her daughter received the second dose of the COVID vaccine on 02Apr2021. On the evening of 04Apr2021, her daughter broke out in hives. They didn't think it was a big deal, they thought it was just an allergic reaction. She tried Benadryl and several other things. They went and saw her daughters regular general practitioner and the doctor believed it was just a delayed skin reaction, which seems to be common with the Pfizer COVID vaccine. The doctor told her he's seen one other person with this delayed reaction. He gave her daughter a steroid injection, a Steroid Dose Pack and Pepcid. She was also placed on Benadryl as needed. About 2 weeks after this, her daughter and lip and face swelling and ended up in the Emergency Room (ER). At this ER visit, they initiated the allergic reaction protocol and it was not an anaphylactic reaction at that point. Her daughter received IV Benadryl and IV steroids, the caller is not sure what else. She confirms she has no NDC, Lot number and expiry dates for the medication her daughter received in the ER. The ER doctor contacted the Immunologist on call and the Immunologist had seen a few cases with a delayed reaction. Caller clarifies the ER doctor discussed her daughter's delayed skin reaction with the on-call Immunologist. The oncologist put her daughter on generic Zyrtec, 20mg in the morning and 20mg at night. The following week, her daughter woke her up with facial and tongue swelling. She clarifies further her daughter had fever, joint pain, and had broken out in a rash that moved to her face and lips. She immediately took her to the ER. The ER followed the whole anaphylaxis protocol and was given an EpiPen. She explains her daughter was diagnosed serum/covid sickness. This has been going on for over 6 weeks. The reaction will come and go. She was told as her daughter's body develops immunity, she is basically allergic to it. She clarifies at her ER visits, they checked her daughters liver and kidneys. It was noted her daughter had and elevated CRP, which is an inflammatory marker. The caller was told they thought her daughter had serum sickness from the vaccine which may last 4-6 weeks or it may be prolonged, so they just went with it. They told her as long as it didn't move to her lips or affect her daughters breathings, eventually it would wax and wane and go away. Her daughter started breaking out on her arms and legs and last Saturday, she woke up and her face was swelling. She clarifies her daughter's eye started to swell and her tongue. She took her straight to the ER and the ER followed the anaphylaxis protocol and injected her with an EpiPen. They contacted her Immunologist to check and make sure it wasn't anything else and consulted with the Covid Vaccine Clinic and it was found 3 other patients had this happen. No further details were provided regarding the 3 other patients. Right now, her daughter is on 4 different medications and an EpiPen. They contacted her insurance about her being placed on a biologic because not even the current medications her daughter is on is making everything going away. Caller verifies her daughter was never admitted into the hospital. When she was last seen in the ER Monday, she her daughter was monitored for 4 hours after the EpiPen was administered. The events require a visit to Emergency Room (total of three ER visits) and Physician Office. She known the last/third ER visit was Monday, 17May2021. The second ER visit was 04May2021. She believes the initial/first ER visit was probably a week or so before the second one. She clarifies she broke out in hives on 04 Apr2021 and went to the doctor on 07Apr2021 or 08Apr2021 so the ER visit was around the next week. Since her daughter had such a good response from the EpiPen the ER doctor took pictures before and after. She clarifies the name of the biologic they want to put her daughter on is Xolair, it is a monthly injection. She explains the current cocktail they have her daughter on is not working. She provides the following product information for these 4 medications and EpiPen. Relevant Tests included she knows they are testing for any other thing that it could be to rule it out. She knows they ran a CIS-tray, a complete CIQ , a Histamine release something and Tryptase. She knows they checked her CRP (inflammatory marker) because it was elevated. Every time her daughter went to the ER, they did a CBC and all of that was normal except for the CRP inflammatory marker, however her CRP was normal at the last ER visit. The outcome of events was unknown. No follow-up attempts are needed. No further information is expected.

Parent had the patient give the description: The next morning, I had sore left side/left side of neck. Later on that day, I was feeling my neck and I felt a giant lump on the left side of my neck. I thought that I had slept on it wrong. Later on, it wouldn't go away - even with massage. It was painful. It caused disturbance, I wasn't comfortable when I was sleeping. It had gotten bigger the next morning. Our doctor said that it was lymph nodes and it was a response of immune system to injection. To make sure, I'm getting an ultrasound. It has gone done but I still notice another smaller lump there still as well. (The two lumps are side by side.) For the pain and swelling, the doctor prescribed me ibuprofen. This has calmed it down. It was still a little swollen - about two weeks after. But it's going down little by little. I still feel it, but it's now very small.

They gave her Prevacid and prescribed steroid cream. They told us if it got worse or affected breathing to go ER. We went home and kept taking the benedryl every 6 Hours and using the steroid cream. as one welt would begin to disappear, others would pop up. the steroid cream did not help in that regard. the benedrul would give about 50% relief for about 2 hours before the itching got very bad. Unable to sleep to do anything, we took patient to the pediatrician that Sat morning 5-1-21. She examined her and told her to take Claritin in the morning and Zyrtec at night to help. She was hestiant to prescribe any steroids due to unknown interaction or affects with the Covid shot. She told us to keep checking in with her and also if it got worse or spread to her face/mouth or any trouble breathing to go to the ER. We went home and tried to take an oatmeal bath. It only made things worse. By 10pm that Sat night 5-1-21, the hives had spread to patient's face and lips and were affecting her throat. Her voice got very raspy. we decided at that point to take her to the ER. They started her on steroids that night. She continued taking the steroids for 5 days after that.

I got the shot around 5:20. About 4 hours later I started to feel nauseous and ran to the bathroom and vomited. About an hour after that I had diarrhea. I went to bed, couldn?t fall asleep until 3. I woke up at 6 am sweating a lot and having body aches that were very persistent and painful in my legs. This persisted to 3/12/2021 until about 6 or 7 pm and I began to feel a lot better. That entire day I was hot and cold and had body aches. But no longer had vomiting. Then on Saturday, 3/13/2021 I woke up with a sore left armpit and neck but the armpit was way worse. I looked it up ?sore left armpit after covid vaccine? and it said swollen lymph nodes - so I?m guessing that?s what both pains were as my roommate who had the second dosage of Pfizer vaccine the week before had a protruding lymph node on her neck. They both are still in pain until today 3/15/2021.

These symptoms included severe nausea, headache, weak/rapid heart rate, chills, muscle aches, and a fever of 101 degrees F. Lymph nodes in the left armpit were also swollen and painful to the touch. After 10am, the chills and fever subsided, but the headache, general muscle aches, swollen lymph nodes, and bouts of nausea persisted (these lasted the entire day). The following day (4/23), nausea and muscle aches subsided but the headache remained. The headache only came on whenever changing elevation of the head (standing up, sitting down, bending over), at which point it would be painful for a few minutes after moving. An extremely stiff, painful neck also began the same day (4/23) and persisted for approximately 2 days after injection (accompanied by the headache). Lymph nodes under the collar bone on the left side of the body also became swollen (4/23). Lymph nodes in armpit and under collarbone are still swollen 6 days after injection, although not painful.

I had received mosquito bites on my leg a week before I received the first dose of the COVID vaccine. These bug bites were not itching and almost gone when I received the vaccine, however, the night after my vaccine they became very itchy. The next morning, the bites had swelled up, were very hot, itchy and unbearable to manage. They were treated with at home-remedies and over the counter itch medicine. They are almost gone again as of the 27th of April. I took various pictures when they swelled up. My partner received the Johnson and Johnson vaccine and also said his bug bites became itchy for the first time since he got the bite.

The vaccination went as expected the day after with fever and chills. But the second day after the vaccine I woke up with welts on my arms and legs the grew until they encompassed my legs fully and inner arms full. It spread to my entire body in big parts. The third day is spread to everywhere it hadnt the first (chest, stomach, outer arms, feet and hands). But it swelled my hands to the point that I can't make a fist. The fourth day the welts and rash cleared up everywhere else but I woke up with it on my feet and they swelled to the point where I can't walk today. So day 3 it swelled my hands and day 4 is swelled my feet but its going away within a 24 hrs period. I am currently unable to use pens and small objects in my hands to hold due to the swelling. I am also unable to walk. The ER says to wait it out because its an allergic reaction and I intend to. But even the pharmacy said that out of their 9000 patients done i have been the only one thst has had a worse adverse effect on the second dose. Nothing occurred on the first dose, just the second. I hsvebeen taking benadryl and tylonol but they don't seem to do much ut just is taking time, but there has been no improvement on my hands or feet.

A 21-year-old female patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE) on 09Apr2021 (lot number EW0153), at the age of 21 years, as the first single dose, for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history was not reported. Concomitant medication included an unspecfied low estrogen birth control (she just took a birth control pill every day, probably on it since she was 16 or 17 years old). On 12Apr2021 the patient experienced back pain. On an unspecified date in 2021 the patient experienced lymph node swelling under her right arm pit into her chest. She had swelling in her lymph nodes and in her chest that were painful and she could touch them. On 16Apr2021 the patient experienced pneumothorax (on that day she went to the urgent care and they told her that her lung was about to collapse). The reporter finally got her daughter to come home from school and she took her to the emergency room on 17Apr2021. When the lung had collapsed, she felt worse and then she was in the hospital for an entire week. This event required hospitalization from 17Apr2021 to 29Apr2021. On 23Apr2021 she had a tube in her chest that was drawing the air out and they did something where they inflated her lung to see if it would stay and it wouldn't stay so they had to do surgery on 26Apr2021. When they went to do surgery they saw that on the outer part of her lung where the hole was that it wouldn't heal and they saw that it was like a cobble stone texture on the outside of the lung. The patient was in the hospital until 29Apr2021 and she was in the ICU the entire time. She went for check-ups and everything seemed to be good and her lung had healed. The caller was trying to connect dots between her family members and she had asked her daughter how she felt right after the COVID vaccine and her daughter said that she felt like "ehhh" and then on 12Apr2021 she had the back pain, then on 13Apr2021 she had air bubbles in her chest and on 15Apr2021 she was trying to walk to bars and she was out of breath. On 16Apr2021 the urgent care said they saw a cyst that was ready to burst on her lung and she was on bed rest and was given steroids. The caller thought that the swelling and the lymph nodes and having the cobble stone texture were all from irritation and then it had made a blister that popped creating the hole. On 29Jun2021 the patient experienced heart murmur and a high resting heart rate. Around 29Jun2021, the patient was feeling like her heart was moving in her chest and that it was out of synch and not right and that it was racing high and so the reporter called their family doctor who saw the patient the next day. They did an EKG that was irregular and now she had a heart murmur. She wasn't born with that and she had never had that and she didn't leave the hospital with that. She was fine until now with her having the murmur and the high resting heart rate, around 85. The caller didn't know the exact EKG irregularities because it said "normal" but they gave a copy to her and said to bring it to the cardiologist because it was not normal. The reporter didn't know the details and won't until the follow-up appointment on 16Jul2021 which was when they would have a better idea about what they were going to call this. She had the swelling in her right arm under the arm and in her chest area and breast, she was thin breasted, this was on the right side and then her right lung collapsed. The caller says that this was not a coincidence. There was no way that she would have three family members injured if it wasn't for the COVID vaccine. Her daughter should be taking an allergy medication but she won't take it. The patient did not receive the 2nd dose (when she had gotten out of the hospital after her pneumothorax that was when she was supposed to get her 2nd dose but they didn't go get it because they couldn't risk that). Back pain resolved on an unspecified date in 2021. The other events outcome was unknown. Follow-up attempts are completed.

I started to experience some chest pain. I was vaping and I stopped. The pain went away after about 3-4 days. I had to take shallow breaths for those 3-4 days because of the sharp pain I would feel. I feel skeptical that my immune system has been weakened.

Although I did experience extreme headaches and a sore arm within days of getting the vaccine in addition to continuing & excessive fatigue, a little over a week later I had an extreme, painful skin outbreak all over my body. I'm assuming my eczema flared up in reaction to the vaccine, but up until that day my eczema had been dormant and restricted to a mild dry patch on my arm and leg joints. Within an hour, I had red spots and red patches appear all over body, including my stomach and back, where I hadn't had an eczema outbreak in years. My neck was swollen and became extremely wrinkly in appearance, as did my elbows and anywhere else I itched. Although that night was the most abrupt and extreme part of the reaction period, it took 3 days for the flare-up to calm down, the duration of which I was incredibly itchy and experiencing some pain. I took several Benadryl tablets the next day to help calm the itchiness before bedtime.

Keep having very high heart rates). Went to doctor. While there, nurse noted irregular heartbeat that sounded like it was ?skipping a beat? and heart rate was also jumping all over the place (high pace, low pace, high, etc.). It was clear something was abnormal. Doctor gave EKG approximately 20 minutes later, EKG looked normal. Was told to come back next morning for blood work and to cut out caffeine. March 31, 2021: Came in for blood work to check thyroid. April 6, 2021: Thyroid results were normal. Still having palpitations among other symptoms (see April 12 for more info) so was told to come in. Was given ?work from home? note and referred to cardiologist.

Heart rate was recorded this day to have gotten up to 139 BPM-- was very high majority of the day. EKG was normal (with exception of high heart rate) but 30 mins later doctor observed high heart rate and abnormal rhythm. Was told to come back in a week and one day for a heart ultrasound and heart monitoring for three days. Still no caffeine intake since 3/30/21.

Around 3:30am on Sunday, I woke up due to feeling very cold. My teeth were chattering and regardless of the amount of layers of clothes or blankets added, I could not get warm. Later in the day I checked my temperature and it registered at 100.6 degree Fahrenheit, but I did not feel as cold as I had earlier that morning. I also had what felt like a sinus headache and my whole body felt stiff/achy. There was also some slight nausea that occurred. The nausea and slight fever went away by 11am, but the headache and body aches lasted until about 9PM Sunday night. After my nausea went away I was able to take some Aleve to help with the stiffness. At the site of injection, it is slightly raised red bump (about two inches across horizontally and vertically), and there is some slight pain in the armpit area on this side as well. The swelling of the bump was slightly bigger yesterday, but the swelling has gone down some this morning.

Medical history included covid-19 from Nov2020 to an unknown date (had covid in the middle of November), surgeries from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing (She also had previous surgeries and has foreign objects in her body. Those areas were super hot. Those antibodies were like rejecting those foreign bodies because they were super hot.) There were no concomitant medications. Received call from RN calling about the Pfizer COVID vaccine. She got the vaccine on Tuesday and had a terrible reaction to it and she called a couple of different hotlines and spoke with the people who administered it. She confirmed that she did not report to Pfizer though. The people at her work that she spoke with told her to go to an Urgent care. They told her she should not get it within 90 days of having COVID. She had COVID in the middle of Nov2020. She went ahead and got it on Tuesday and had this terrible reaction. She would like to know if she should get the second dose or wait until 90 days after she had COVID and start again. There was no prescriber. She received it as part of the (hospital name withheld) front line health worker precaution. She thought that this was a normal reaction, but was told it was not. Fatigue and overall lethargic feeling happened exactly 12 hours after receiving. She works night shift and that is her base line. Pretty much everything hit after that within an hour. She was told low grade fever was normal, but not 102. She never spikes fevers, so it is medically significant. It persisted for 24 hours and is better today. She is on the 48 hour mark now. Stomach pains, nausea, diarrhea, lymph node swelling all over, including swelled armpits and groin area, Migraine, Frequent urination, were also listed as side effects. She was trying to push more fluids but her urine was dark color more than normal, despite pushing fluids. Swollen lymph nodes in her groin and armpits were concerning. Her head is lumpy. Meaning, she can feel swollen lymph nodes in back of neck area. Migraine was consistent through 24 hours and now has improved. Urine color remains dark and she will keep an eye on color.

Day 5 after vaccination, I developed lymphadenopathy on my left side with swelling into the chest area developing on day 6. Day 8 after vaccination, my injection site turned red and itchy and I began to have trouble breathing. I went to urgent care. I saw P. A.

She proscribed 20mg of Prednisone and refilled my albuterol prescription. About 20 hours later, my breathing is still difficult and my arm still itches. We also discussed that the respiratory symptoms could be caused or exasperated by COVID-19, so I am waiting on results from a covid test.

29 minutes after being given the vaccine my tongue started itching and swelled up a bit, my mouth felt dry, my face became a bit reddened, puffy, and itchy, my throat began to swell a bit and my chest felt tight, giving me some discomfort when it came to breathing. I let the nurses who were keeping an eye on those waiting for 15/30 minutes know that I was having a reaction. I waited 1 more minute, and when my throat felt tighter and I had a bit more difficulty breathing, I took 1 Benadryl tablet, and waited 2 minutes, and when the symptoms were still worsening slowly, I took a second Benadryl tablet and after a few minutes my symptoms started to go away. I waited another 10 minutes and then went home when it seemed that my symptoms were going away. At 6:45pm on 2/21/2021 my throat and chest started feeling tight again and gave me mild breathing discomfort, so I took another Benadryl tablet, a few minutes later my face began to itchy and my mouth felt dry and my tongue felt a bit swollen, whereupon I took a second Benadryl tablet at 6:56pm, and then felt a wave of nausea. At 6:59pm, the feeling of tightness had not abated, but also hadn't worsened noticeably, and the itching feeling began to spread from my face to my ears and down my neck. At 7:04pm the tightness of my throat and chest began to increase some, and I started to feel some anxiety. At 7:11pm I inhaled two puffs from an albuterol inhaler used for treating asthma as my throat and chest were continuing to slowly get tighter. At 7:26pm I still felt itchy and my throat and chest still felt tight, but it wasn't noticeably worse. At 7:35pm, my throat began to feel tight enough to give me noticeable discomfort while breathing and for me to make a slight wheezing sound while breathing, and my tongue felt like it swelled a bit more, and my mouth still felt dry. At 7:51pm the Benadryl made me feel sleepy, but had no effect on my itchy skin or tightness of throat or chest. 8:00pm, my throat and chest felt tighter and I started having some difficulty swallowing and I felt very warm. 8:05pm, I had a lot of difficulty swallowing and had trouble breathing, so I went to the Emergency Room and was given an Epinephrine shot and sent home after an hour of observation.

Arm was super sore and felt swollen. Felt numb at times. Slurred words 30 min after shot. Fatigued and exhausted causing me to sleep for hours. Felt like a hangover without the drinking. Another comparison is that it felt like the last day of being sick with the flu, just very groggy and not feeling 100 percent okay.

Hospital course: 23 yo female with no significant PMH presenting to the ED with right sided CP, worse with deep inspiration. Received 2nd covid vaccination last week- mild reaction with fever thereafter. She had w/u in the ED including an EKG with inferior and septal TWI and trop of 1.61. CTA chest was negative. She was admitted. After admit, troponin trended up (1.61--3.71--4.93). CRP 49.1, ESR 21. Echo showed apex hypokinesis so with TWI on EKG and elevated trop, cardiology elected for LHC. This was normal. Cardiac MRI showed myopericarditis. She was started on high dose ASA, colchicine and bblocker for this. Likely viral etiology (Covid, Resp 4 plex negative). Trop trended down on 4/13 (CRP still rising). Cardiology was ok with discharge. Will need 2 weeks of ASA and 3 months of colchicine. No strenuous activities for that time frame. She is getting her Masters in music/violin and did not need a return to school note. Feeling somewhat better at discharge- rated pain 6/10.

I (patient) developed swollen and painful lymph nodes in the underarms on both sides of my body. They began on the side of the injection but spread to include both arms. In addition, two similarly swollen and painful lumps have appeared, though I am not sure if they are lymph nodes given their locations. One is along my the line of my waistband in the front of my body, not in the traditional groin area where most charts ascribe lymph nodes to be. One is directly below my areola on my right breast. Along with these lumps, I developed a rash made up of several small, inflamed hives that range from painless, to itchy, to painful. They are concentrated along my bra line, particularly around my breasts, but are spread everywhere from below my neckline to above my ankles. These symptoms began approximately 7 days after my second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and are continuing at the time of this report.

At about the same time the standard soreness at the shot site from the shot began to form (in the left arm), soreness also began to form in the left armpit. Both signs of soreness began around 7pm the evening of the shot. The day after the shot was administered the soreness in the shot site began to lessen but the pain in the armpit persisted. The armpit pain, the day after the shot was administered, felt sore, almost as if I have been holding a golf ball tightly between my arm and torso for hours and a bruise had formed. That night I checked my armpit to see if there was any swelling or bruising. There was some swelling and a small lump within the tissue of the armpit the night of the day after the shot. The morning of the 23rd , two days after the shot was administered, the armpit pain persisted and the lump was bigger than the night before and the swelling remained.

24 hours after receiving vaccine, the left side of my face experienced mild swelling (it should be noted I received the injection in my left arm). I experienced heavy allergy symptoms including redness and swelling in left eye, watery eyes particularly in left eye, runny nose and pain particularly in left nostril, heaviness of breath, tiredness. I think it is of note that as of writing this, I have not received commonly reported symptoms of fever, chills and nausea in conjunction with the reported adverse symptoms.

The day following the vaccination I woke up with severe arm pain 2 inches down from the injection site. My arm had swollen about 3 inches in diameter. It was so painful that I could not roll over, I could not lift my arm, and I was in inconsolable tears. It was a deep stinging pain, as though I was repeatedly being stung by a hornet. My left hand was going numb off and on. I went to the doctor because I was incapable of lifting my arm, and the doctor identified that my lymph nodes and my left ear were swollen and enlarged. He recommended ibuprofen and ice for the lump. The second day after receiving the vaccine I had a mild headache, and my arm was only slightly swollen. The third day after receiving the vaccine my arm was still slightly swollen and sore, but the pain was manageable without pain medication. The fourth day after receiving the vaccine I woke up with a deep cough and dizzy spells lasting throughout the day.

I received the Pfizer second dose on May 5th and started to have an allergic reaction on May 6th at 02:32. I was not able to attend classes due to muscle pain, headache and nausea. I was having some sort of fever where I felt hot but my body was cold. I slept for the majority of the day. Around 16:35, when I woke up, I noticed a rash and that my body was feeling swollen. I took 2 Benadryl gel pills at 18:03. I felt some difficulty breathing, and itching sensation all over my body and still had a lot of tension on the left side of my jaw. I went out to eat with my boyfriend, because we had plans and he had also complained of having some cold chills from the vaccine, and he noticed that I had red marks on my hands. By May 7 10:05 I called off of work to go my doctor, because I had massive splotches of raised itchy hives all over my body. It was confirmed that I was having an allergic reaction and I received a steroid shot in my upper gluteal muscle, as well as Famotidine 20mg twice daily for 5 days and Prednisone 20mg twice daily for 5 days.

A 23-year-old female patient (daughter) received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTEC COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE, Solution for injection, lot number: ER8737 and expiry date was not reported), via an unspecified route of administration, in Arm Left, on 07Apr2021 at 11:00 AM (age at vaccination: 23 year) as a single dose for COVID-19 immunization. The patient was not pregnant at the time of vaccination. The patient did not receive any other vaccine in four weeks. The patient's medical history included anemic, eczema, gastric reflex, known allergies: citrus food, latex gloves, Compazine, Augment, and headaches from concussions. Concomitant medications included Ferrous Sulfate, Diethylpropion HCL, and glucose, sodium chloride (DNS). The patient was not diagnosed with COVID prior vaccination. The patient was not tested for COVID post vaccination. There was a product complaint to report. On 07Apr2021 12:30, the patient experienced swollen neck/neck was swelling, nauseated vomiting/nausea and vomiting, entire body swelling all extremities, itchy red rash: face, neck, upper chest, forearms, thighs, back eyebrows, severe frontal occipital lateral stabbing headache, sore, tender body and chills. On 07Apr2021, the patient experienced right upper shoulder discomfort with swelling that goes into her neck, light sensitivity, having a rash, rash is itching, her skin is peeling, redness and severe headache. On 09Apr2021, the patient experienced motion sickness and numbness of right forearm. On 12Apr2021, the patient had tachycardia and scaling. When probed to determine when the tachycardia began, the caller mentioned that the tachycardia was noted at the doctor's office. She confirmed the tachycardia began Monday, 12Apr2021. She clarified it was her second doctor's visit so if the caller gave the wrong date, they were able to find it by her records on her second doctor's visit. Caller confirmed with her daughter the tachycardia was still intermittent, it comes and goes. It seems to be that it has improved. She could consider it was medically significant because they didn't know what the root cause was. Her daughter has never experienced tachycardia before being dosed with the Pfizer vaccine. There was not treatment for tachycardia. Her daughter was still having a rash; she was breaking out intermittently. She confirmed she did not report online that her daughter was intermittently breaking out. At that time when she filed the report online, the rash just broke out. At that time, she didn't know if her daughter's rash was going to abate and then re-appear. If so, then she would have had to re-open a new event with a new date and time and rate it. She just looked at her daughter's skin, it's peeling. These were very itchy. Caller then clarified most of these events started the day of the vaccine, 07Apr2021 at 12:30 PM. She confirmed some of these events were reported online on the date of the incident and were still present. The severity of each event was on a grading scale, and right now her daughter's grading scale was 10. Online, the patient couldn't even tell how they really were feeling. The severity of each event needed to be asked. By the lack of getting all the information and the less Pfizer has, the better it looks for Pfizer. When probed for outcome, the caller confirmed the rash was still ongoing and it was medically significant because she was going to have to take her to dermatologist. She has been using hydrocortisone cream as treatment of the rash and it's not working. She did not have the NDC, LOT,EXP for the cream. She explained the skin peeling/scaling has been ongoing. Her skin breaks out in a rash and then becomes really scaly and then it peels. She clarified overall, she had a rash, but the rash was itching, had redness, scaling, and her skin was peeling. On scale of 1 to 10, the caller would rate this event as a 10. She confirmed and that it's continuous/ongoing and had not improved. Stated the rash was not to any localized area on her daughter's body, it's all over. She clarified further the rash can appear on her daughter's eyes, chin, cheeks, forearm, wrist, and leg. The severe headache was reported on the day of the vaccine as well as the rash, too. The severe headache was ongoing; caller gives it a grade 10+. She confirmed the headache was medically significant. It did prevent her daughter from driving a car, reading, or doing activities. Caller added that the headache was also disabling because it disables her daughter from functioning at her normal capacity, she's been hindered. Her normal activities she could not perform if the headache was present. The headache was described as stabbing, excruciating pain and burning sensation. When probed for the outcome of her daughter's severe headache, the caller explains it's in between persistent and worsening. On a good day, it's a grade 8.5. On a bad day, it's a grade 10+. No medical treatment for headache, she was not really allowed to do anything. She was waiting for Pfizer vaccine to wash out of her daughter's system. She explained her daughter was laying low and not introducing any more drugs to enter her body since she had a reaction. Caller again stated they were waiting for Pfizer's vaccine to wash out of her daughter's system because they feel as though something was triggering the rash that keeps appearing and the headaches were still there on a grade level of 10+. Her daughter was afraid to take medications, so they were having to do treatments like hot compresses to her daughter's head and neck, massaging her head/neck/back and turning the lights off. The Nausea and vomiting began on 07Apr2021 and was still ongoing. No treatment for nausea. Her daughter just gets still and goes to sleep. When the headaches were excruciating, it brings on nausea and vomiting. Also, she noticed motion sickness. When her daughter was riding in the car and she was experiencing a headache, she had terrible motion sickness. Caller confirmed the caller never had this motion sickness prior to the vaccine. The motion sickness was still ongoing. Her daughter was not treating the motion sickness in any way. She states maybe her daughter has taken one Zofran because it was so bad. No further details provided. The numbness of the right forearm started on 09Apr2021. She confirms the numbness is still ongoing, it comes and goes, intermittently and did not receive any treatment. On 07Apr2021, her entire neck was swelling, left and right side. The left side was better but the rightnside had intermittent swelling, there was ongoing swelling on the right side of her neck and did not receive any treatment and just rubbing of her daughter's neck. Her daughter also has right upper shoulder discomfort with swelling that goes into her neck that was ongoing. She confirmed this event to be medically significant and it has hindered her daughter's normal activity if her shoulder was swollen too bad and she was hurting. Her daughter just started physical therapy. The light sensitivity was still ongoing. If her daughter was not experiencing a headache, the light sensitivity was pretty good and treatment included dark rooms/ black out. Her daughter was following up with an allergy testing by the allergy doctor. She has to find out if there were any active ingredients in the Pfizer vaccine that triggered her daughter's reaction. Caller stated, "something in the COVID-19 vaccine triggered her daughter's body to react the way that it did". Her daughter also was following up with a dermatologist. Her primary care physician requested her daughter to be followed up with her allergy doctor and to be tested. Caller requested Pfizer's adverse team or someone to call and let the caller know how Pfizer follows up with their patients and how well Pfizer's values each patient. The patient's symptoms have not abated. The events of swelling, nausea, vomiting, tachycardia, motion sickness, hypoaesthesia, musculoskeletal discomfort, photophobia, rash, rash pruritic, skin exfoliation, erythema and headache were considered to be medically significant. The events caused the patient to visit emergency department and physician's office. The patient received IM Benadryl 50mg and IM Solumedrol steroid as treatment for the events. The outcome of tachycardia was recovering and for burning sensation it was unknown, and for all the other events, it was not recovered.; Sender's Comments: There is a reasonable possibility that the events nausea, vomiting, pruritic rash, erythema, and severe headache were related to BNT162b2 based on known drug safety profile and close temporal relationship. The association between the events swelling, tachycardia, motion sickness, hpyoaesthesia, musculoskeletal discomfort, photophobia, skin peeling, and scaly skin with BNT162b2 can not be fully excluded based on temporal relationship. 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.

Anaphylaxis - Throat swelled almost completely closed, wheezing, lightheadedness (nearly passed out), throat/neck and injection site were very itchy and swollen, face/eyes swelled up, turned very pale all over, heart palpitations, etc. The next day - severe, horribly painful burning sensation all throughout my body. Even clothing lightly touching my skin felt like hot razors cutting in to me. Residual swelling of the face/ arm. Migraine. For two weeks after - Very large, hard lump under my skin at the injection site. It was about the size of my hand and was very painful. After a few weeks it went away. Treatment- large amounts of benadryl. The pharmacist wanted to use an epipen and send me to the hospital, but I refused because I could still get some air in (doctor later told me that my reaction was so severe I should have gone to the hospital). I had to keep taking large amounts of benadryl for the next few days to keep the reaction down a bit.
