After her infusion, both of her eyes were swollen, the right eye was sensitive to light, her eyes kept fluttering while looking up or bending over, and the right side of the face was swollen. This was constantly happening but is now getting better but not completely over. She mentioned that she talked to several doctors and they think that Remicade, since it lowers the immune system and decreases white blood cell count and the vaccine increases the white blood count, it has interfered with the signals with her eyes. She was also hospitalized from 29May2021 to 2Jun2021 for cellulitis and was given some antibiotics and steroids which she thinks helped with her symptoms.

She had some other health issues earlier this month and was put on antibiotics. The antibiotics seemed to help the eye it is not completely gone but better. She was wondering now if she should get the Remicade on 24Jun2021. She had skin cancer, and when they removed it, she got cellulitis in her leg. She was in the hospital for 3 days. She asked the doctor there and they brushed her off. The last day before she came home the nurse came in and wanted to know if she had her shot. She asked the nurse the same question about the vaccine and Remicade, and the nurse said now they ask people before they get the shot if they are on Remicade. The nurse didn't have anyone that said yes. It was seeming like there is some kind of problem with Remicade and the vaccine. That is why she was a little bit concerned about having it again.

My reaction to Pfizer #2 lasted for 8 weeks and went through three phases. Throughout this time, I had swollen glands under my jaw. 1)The morning after the shot I awoke to severe nausea and vomiting and had to get prescription anti-nausea meds. 2) A few days later my bowels went wild with lots of rumbling and gas and frequent bowel movements. 3) The swollen glands in my jaw cycled between getting better and then worse, and I had and bouts of feeling unwell and fatigued. I went from sleeping 7-8 hours per night before the vaccine to sleeping 9-10 hours a night. Some days I was fine. Then I would have a bad day. One day I was fine in the morning then crashed after noon -- like when I had mononucleosis at 17.

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

The outcome of the event was unknown.; Sender's Comments: Face swelling is not related to the vaccine use but due to the underlying tooth canal issue.

Doctor was the one who put in the referral for home health. The PT and RN have been been coming out to my home to see me.

One hour after receiving the vaccination, I had an uncontrolable bout of diarrhea in a public place. Later in the day, I felt fatigued, and aching, and my left arm started to get very tight and sore. The next day I felt the same, and my lymph nodes under both my arms began to swell and hurt and my rectum began to have severe pain. Still had diarrhea. By day 5 my left arm ,at the site of the injection ,started to swell, get very hot ,and a large, bright red welt appeared which almost reached my elbow and went across the width of my upper arm.. I called my doctor and went to see her on the next day because it had gotten worse. She thought it was a local reaction and recommended ice, tylenol and benedryl. Again, as with the first shot, I am not sure if this is an allergic reaction or not., but thought I would report it.

Itchy burny skin rash started in right armpit and lower back, then migrated sequentually to left armpit, the sides of both breasts, the back of the right shoulder, the left thigh, and finally to the abdomen. The rash starts as fine red spots that later become inflamed and join to form large irregular patches that could be a 2 or 3 inches in diameter. Televisited primary care physician who prescribed Zyrtec twice a day and Caladryl topical lotion and referred me to a dermatologist who prescribed 0.05% Clobetasol Propionate Ointment and Benadryl as needed. The rash persisted and became worse after the 2nd shot 21 days later, but was fading slightly and was less itchy and burny just before the 2nd shot. Will report 2nd shot events separately later.

A 77-years-old female patient received second dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 MRNA VACCINE, Solution for injection, lot number and expiry date not reported) via an unspecified route of administration on 08Feb2021 at a single dose for covid-19 immunisation. The patient's medical history included weakened immune system because of the alcohol allergy (started while 19), and aches and pains. Concomitant medications were not reported. The patient received the first dose of bnt162b2 (expiry date May2021) for COVID-19 immunisation at the age of 77 years old last 22Jan2021 administered on the upper righthand arm later clarified as upper right arm; and she was still going through that systemic reaction when she had her first COVID vaccine. The patient asked on regarding how effective the vaccine was related to receiving steroid therapy. Patient was advised by doctor to go to urgent care to have a covid test to see if she and husband were exposed to covid before the vaccines kicked in. Patient stated that on an unspecified date in 2021, she still didn't feel well and was running one heck of a temperature (increased). Patient reported she had a severe allergic reaction to the vaccine. She filled out the forms. Patient felt like she should be put in the hospital. She has a horrific allergy to alcohol. Each time she receives an injection it gets worse. She knew when she received the second dose that the third ingredient was alcohol. She thought about was worse, the virus or the reaction. Within a minute of taking the vaccine she had a reaction. She reported it at the site and was watched for a half hour. Her question was "because she took prednisone immediately after getting the vaccine does that negate the shot?" She was not asked the name of the steroid that she took. She was taking prednisone 20mg, 2 tablets as soon as she gets a shot then 2 daily Monday-Friday. It was still going through her system and it was reeking havoc on her. If she goes to the hospital they will give her Benadryl and monitor her. Patient stated that on 08Feb2021, she had an allergic response to isopropyl alcohol in second dose of COVID vaccine. Patient stated that she had both COVID shots and had adverse reactions and took some medicine for the adverse reaction and now the patient was concerned it might mess with the shot, it might not work for her as it should. She knew that this was going to be a long process and she knew her allergies were rare, but they were there. She is allergic to isopropyl alcohol, even if it is in shampoos or liquid soaps, she gets reactions. She had her first COVID vaccine and she had her own hospital cleanser that she has with her at all times and she used it which was not a problem. For her second COVID vaccine, the nurse was naming the 3 ingredients that were in the COVID vaccine and asked if she was allergic to any. She said this last shot had alcohol in it, she sat with her husband next to her, and thought which was worse: getting COVID, the cases in the city are high, or having a reaction to the alcohol. She chose the latter. When it went into her arm she immediately knew she was getting a reaction. She had steroids with her just in case this happened. Each time the reaction happens, it gets worse. She said she sat for half an hour and has been on steroids until last Friday. She was supposed to be on them for days. On Friday, she was wondering if taking the steroids negated the effectiveness of the COVID vaccine and that's why she called in. She knew that this was rare and it was not something that the company going to say that the company know how to fix it. Patient worked in the health unit of a university as a hiring and firing people person. So, she was around it, but she was not a doctor or a nurse. So, she guessed the answer was no. Last week she received her second COVID vaccine. She said, she has got to get rid of 5 pounds, but it's harder to do that when you're older. She experienced the reaction from the isopropyl alcohol within her second dose of the COVID vaccine last week, 08Feb2021. She said she was still going through it and will for a while. When asked for the outcome, she said she couldn't answer that honestly. She said she didn't feel good (2021). Period. She knew that when she goes through this it takes, each time, an extra 4 to 5 days to get over it. When she got up this morning, she didn't feel good. Her husband asked if she wanted to go sailing, and she said not in 30 degree weather, but for her to say no to sailing, her husband knew she didn't feel well. She couldn't say worse, but she can say she didn't know how long it was going to be, which was scaring her. By doing what she did, if that negated the COVID vaccine, then lets go from there. That's what she was afraid of. When she tells people she is allergic to alcohol, and when it happens, they look at her like "nobody is allergic to alcohol." She is 77 and has the aches and pains of a 77 year old, which she hates. But she doesn't think there are related medical conditions to what she experienced. This (allergy to alcohol) started when she was 19 and it has gotten progressively worse. So she tries to be careful. She says this was her, not dumb, but her decision that she made and now she is concerned. She said no to any tests done. She had the immediate reaction and she knew what to do. Patient further reported that she has allergy to alcohol and had an adverse reaction after the 2nd shot due to alcohol swab and on an unspecified date in 2021, she experienced redness and swelling in her right arm and feeling hot all over the body. Patient asked if her doctor will prescribe Benadryl to manage my allergy will it affect the effectiveness of the PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of the event "allergic response to isopropyl alcohol in second dose of COVID vaccine". The patient did not recover from the event "allergic response to isopropyl alcohol in second dose of COVID vaccine". The outcome of the other events reported was unknown.

A 77-year-old female patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), second dose via an unspecified route of administration on 08Mar2021 15:30 (3:30 PM) (Batch/Lot number was not reported) as SINGLE DOSE for covid-19 immunisation. Medical history included hashimottos (reported as hoshimottos) Diagnosed 35 years ago, hypermobile Diagnosed 20 years ago, and disorder nomia Diagnosed 25 years ago; all unknown if ongoing. Concomitant medication included levothyroxine sodium (SYNTHROID); diazepam (VALIUM); and levothyroxine (LEVOTHYROXINE); all taken for an unspecified indication, start and stop date were not reported. The patient previously took bnt162b2 on 15Feb2021 for covid-19 immunization first dose at the left arm and experienced immobile for a day, cannot walk, weakness and sore arm. The patient was to know if there is going to be a booster for the Pfizer covid vaccine. The patient stated she received the Pfizer covid vaccine both doses and she is calling to report the reaction she had with the first and second dose to help other patients, she said she was close to death after the second dose. In the middle of the night she was awaken due to excruciating pain in the body, like truck ran over her. The patient heard that someone had same reaction who was in the hospital, with similar symptoms to covid. She said she felt like if her internal organ were shutting down. She does not do well with the antibiotic, and does not go to the doctors. She could not walk or eat after the second dose. She said she has hashimoto dysautonomia hypermobility. she said she thinks she might have had anaphylactic reaction. The patient added that she has lived through it and her experience has been very unusual. The caller has underlying conditions that may have caused this event, she received the second dose on 08Mar2021, it was a horrible experience but since she is still alive she would want to report it. The caller does have strange reactions to chemicals and she typically goes to naturopaths and holistic doctors because of this. The caller also has multiple autoimmune disorders and feels like that may have played a part in this reaction. It was added that further added that she received her second dose 08Mar2021 at 3:30pm and had a little bit of a sore arm, she was thinking positive thoughts about all of this because she never gets vaccines. At 2:00am on 09Mar2021 the caller was awaken in excruciating pain, every surgery she has had or accident manifests in the greatest pain. The pain was excruciating the caller took over the counter pain medicine and diclofenac and it didn't help. The caller is unsure of what she took, she may be making this up. The caller felt like she was dying, she felt like her internal organs were shutting down, it happened all week. The caller was so weak her husband fed her and made sure she was drinking. The caller thinks she would die if she had to have a booster shot of this vaccine. The caller has never had anaphylactic shock, could this have been anaphylactic shock? All of the pain from a surgery all occurred at once and her entire body was wrecking, in horrible pain, that she does not think heroin could have taken care of. After the second vaccine she was literally so weak that she felt like all of her vital organs were shutting down and it lasted for 6 days, like she got hit by a truck, like had beat her up. The caller knows that there are new found reactions with (Company name) and they stopped thousands of doses because of it, she saw this in the news today. The patient wanted to make note that she has underlying autoimmune diseases, she is unsure if there is a correlation between this and her reaction. The caller was changing from her thyroid medicine and her thyroid went very high with the generic brand so she was swapped to Synthroid in the middle of this. The caller was on levothyroxine and it wasn't working, her thyroid was sky high (Unknown lot number and expiration date Feb2022). The caller was going through all of these changes as well when she received the vaccine. The caller's doctor took a test and the caller has antibodies and they are there but not very strong. The caller doesn't want to be spreading something because she is feeling healthy and fine today. The outcome of the events was unknown.

She also noticed it moved from one side to the other in a matter of hours. Memory outcome: seems like it was improving, as soon as she found out what was wrong, as soon as she was alerted, she was not remembering too good. Another one, she had last one the 24th, 24Jun2021, so she is going to get a biopsy, is it too soon to do that? It was not even a week of getting it. The biopsy is today. She was informed that she had the appointment yesterday, which is why she called to find out, is it too soon, with not even been a week since she had the COVID shot. She has swelling in her face and she said she can feel it moving. Her face is swelling, and her forehead is protruding. There is swelling around her eyebrows and forehead. She can feel moving of the swelling, moving from one side to the other. She has a biopsy scheduled for today and was wondering if it was the wisest thing to do to get the biopsy today. Caller is also concerned about when one gets the Covid shot, is more than one vial used to give the shot and does it get mixed with something? She spoke with the pharmacy about her concerns because of cancer. She has had cancer before and was questioning that and also kidney problems and kidney disease. Patient states she also has extreme allergies. She has had lung surgery because of the allergies and the drainage in her lungs. The allergies continue year-round. The pharmacist said it was still ok to get the shot. Outcome of the event was not recovered. Information related to batch/Lot no. was requested.

My Mom had an an allergic reaction four hours after receiving her first dose of the Pfizer Covid 19 vaccine. Her face swelled up and became red....worse on the right side than the left...her eyes were swollen as well. It lasted this way for four days....it is a little better now, but her face is still a little swollen (seven days after shot). She had a headache on and off and felt tired (which we understand is not an allergic reaction, but rather an immune response). Her family physician suggested taking antihistamines before her second shot. Needless to say, we are apprehensive about what the outcome from the second shot will be like for her.

I was vaccinated with Pfizer for the first time 11 days ago. Within a few minutes of being vaccinated, I felt nauseated but I did NOT throw up. I have been sick ever since with one thing and another. For the first several days after being vaccinated, I had a sore arm, which I expected. I have also experienced extreme fatigue, chills, nausea, muscle and joint aches, a sore throat (briefly), an occasional headache, tenderness in my left armpit and along the left side of my rib cage, stomach pain and diarrhea and at times, a low-grade fever and sweating. My memory and ability to focus on my work have been affected. Yesterday (March 13), I felt OK all day and thought I was better at last, but after I ate dinner, I vomited and had diarrhea. I told my primary care physician about all of this in an email and she replied that my symptoms were "normal." I'm not so sure. I haven't read of anyone else feeling so sick for so long after the first dose of Pfizer.

Two weeks and six days after the first shot, my left arm became swollen, as if it was lymphedema, something I don't get, or perhaps gout. After the second shot, the arm swelled more, with the hand looking like a balloon and a few days of tiredness. I put on a few pounds. Dr wanted to rule out a recurrence of breast cancer so she sent me for ultrasound, mammograms, and CT scans, with a week gap to take antibiotics for a UTI. At a coincidental checkup with my glaucoma doctor, he said the intraocular pressure had shot up and added 0.5% Timolol eyedrops, a beta blocker. In a few days, the swelling is less and the extra weight gone.

Her face felt like it had pressure like it was blowing up but it did not feel swollen, it was tomato red. The patient queried if she does not get the second dose what will that do. She knows there needs to be given a certain amount of time between the doses. She heard on the tv that it can be given up to 45 days and still be effective. She heard all kinds of information, she heard that someone should get the second dose within 28 days and the paperwork states something different. Asked if her reaction will be worse with second shot. She was supposed to go back on 16Feb2021 for the second dose. Patient stated she took Benadryl after her reaction from the vaccine. She wanted to know if this affects the vaccine. Patient mentioned the fact sheet states that patients should tell the vaccination provider if they have a bleeding disorder or are on a blood thinner. She states she has a bleeding disorder. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of the events. She took a Benadryl for treatment.

Her lips were swollen and then her tongue started to swell. I took her to the ER where they sent us to a large hospital. They ran all sorts of test. Blood work, CT Scan, ultra sound. No one could tell me why this was happening. They gave her antibiotics and steroids and the following morning on February 13th she was discharged. The next morning on February 14, patient called me again in a panic. She couldn't breath and couldn't swallow. Her lips, tongue, and under her chin were swollen, hot, and hard as a rock. I rushed to get her and took her back to the hospital. She was in the ER for about 8 hours where she was almost intubated as her airway was close to closing off. She was moved up to the ICU that day and stayed in the the ICU until February 19th. During that time, they ran all the same tests, blood work, CT Scan, ultrasound and no one could tell me why my mom was having this reaction. After we returned home I received a call from the ICU doctor who was checking on her as they had more patients come in with the same symptoms post covid - vaccine. She advised to file this reaction with all the information I had and told me that patient was not to get the booster if one was required later.

A 78-year-old female patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), at same age, dose 2 via an unspecified route of administration on 09Jun2021 (Batch/Lot Number: EW0182; Expiration Date: 31Aug2021) as DOSE 2, SINGLE for covid-19 immunisation. Medical history included ongoing Borderline multiple myeloma (Borderline Multiple myeloma for 10-15 years), ongoing Monoclonal gammopathy, covid-19 from Mar2020, Severe allergies, ongoing having a lot of immunology problems going on/ immunocompromised, sarcoidosis from 1970, Russian flu, 5 episodes of anaphylaxis, had 9-10 episodes of total body hives, has been resuscitated twice, B cell blood malignancy, allergic to over 30 drugs and lingering COVID symptoms: dry cough, muscle and joint pain, headache, dizziness, and diarrhea. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported. Patient previous received hepatitis vaccines and TB for immunization and experienced did not respond/ nonresponsive, received Swine Flu for immunization and received first dose of bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, lot number: EW0173, expiry: 31Aug2021), on 19May2021 (at the age of 78-year-old) as single for COVID-19 immunisation and experienced high fever, joint pain, some weakness in her legs/severe muscle weakness, headache, nausea, she was very ill / She said she was pretty sick for 10 days, diarrhea and muscle pain. The patient experienced dizzy, and severe muscle weakness, and pain/ weakness in legs, both on 10Jun2021 with serious criteria of disability, diarrhea, and had a fever of 102 for 5 days on 10Jun2021. Her immunologist cleared her for the vaccine because she has an unsettling allergy history. He did an immunology review of her allergies and prior vaccination problems before determining if she could get the COVID vaccine. He wrote her a letter that said she had to get the vaccine in a room with an IV ready and the defibrillator ready as well. Her immunologist thought it was prudent she try the first dose. She did have COVID already in 2020. She ended up in the emergency room from the vaccine. She was reticent to get the second dose because she had barely recovered from the first dose when she was due for her second dose. The second dose reaction was different. The day she got the second dose 09Jul2021, she got home okay without problem and went to bed. When she got up in the morning she had trouble getting out of bed. She had difficulty walking. She said she had a severe bilateral leg and sacral pain to the point where she had difficulty walking (10Jun2021). She also said there was numbness in her leg, swelling in her "sacrum," and really horrible radiating pain down both of her legs, front and back. She was fine the day she received the shot, but had great difficulty getting out of bed the next day. She said she still could not drive because she was still dizzy and nauseated. She added that she had headache, nausea, and diarrhea. She said she had on and off diarrhea for 6 or 7 days, and couldn't keep anything down without having it. She said she had severe joint pain, severe muscle weakness, and pain, and had a fever of 102 for 5 days (from 10Jun2021 to 15Jun2021). On the 5th day of her having fever, she said she was struggling to put one foot in front of the other in terms of walking. She said she was also starting to feel as if she was paralyzed. She was having troubles trying to walk normally since there was weakness in her legs. She also said she did not have any appetite. She spent a lot of time in bed, sleeping, and had troubles staying awake. She said she had a bad headache. She said she called 911, and went to the hospital. She stayed there for 2 days. She said it was very unpleasant. She also had neurological problems as well such as extreme difficulty in walking, standing up, and profound leg weakness. However, she said that her neurologist assured her that it would go away within 4 to 5 weeks. She said it has already been 5 weeks since her 2nd dose, but she was still not feeling well. She was improving, but not well. She said she was physically not much better. She was having severe bilateral leg and sacral pain. Her sacrum was hot and swollen so she called the ambulance. She went to the ER because she had difficulty walking. She went to the ER. After five days of the second dose she still had a fever and trouble walking. The ER did multiple scans including a CAT scan of her abdomen and pelvis, an x-ray of her pelvis, and MRI of her upper and lower spine. She also had blood cultures and multiple lab work done. They were trying to rule out Guillain-Barre. She was in the ER for 2 days. She was very sick. The second day she was in the ER they told her she could go home. She thought it was because they were busy. No one explained to her the results of her tests or what was going on. Once her fever was done they didn't have to deal with her anymore. They sent her home when she was still sick with leg pain, trouble walking, and still had diarrhea. She was still nauseated, and was just eating jello. It is week 5 and she is really physically not much better. She can't drive because she was still dizzy and nauseated. She has leg pain, trouble sleeping, and muscle weakness in her legs. She is not recovered from the second dose. She thought she was going to die from it. It took a lot to call 911 especially as a nurse, but the numbness and pain in her legs was really severe. She had such weakness that she had trouble standing up and navigating through her apartment without falling down. She had made slight improvement. She mentioned that she had the flu back in 1988, so she felt very ill, and was in the hospital for 2 weeks. She was a long haul COVID patient who is enrolled in a long haul COVID program. She has been sick for a year and a half now since having COVID. She got COVID in Mar2020, and did not recover well. that is one of the reasons why they delayed her vaccination. She had to do prednisone during that time, and had to wait 6 weeks after completing the Prednisone to get the vaccine. Her baseline was a subnormal temperature of 96.1 because of her immunology issue. So 102 is really high for her. She had lingering COVID symptoms, and was a long haul patient. She had a cyclic problem with dry cough, muscle and joint pain, headache, dizziness, and diarrhea. She would have it bad for 7 days, and then recover a couple of days, and then it repeats itself. She couldn't drive because she was too dizzy and weak to drive. It was not safe to drive. She didn't have enough strength in legs to stop the car. She was seen by a neurologist several days after her emergency room visit. He examined her, and asked her reaction to the Pfizer vaccine. He said he had other patients with similar outcomes. She was immunocompromised . She has had borderline Multiple myeloma for 10-15 years. She has Monoclonal gammopathy, MGUS, she had it for a while. There are periods of time where her protein is elevated making her borderline for myeloma. She has had a couple rounds of prednisone to suppress the protein. She has a positive ANC. She has a multitude of issues. She was diagnosed with sarcoidosis in 1970 bust is in remission. She is tested regularly for sarcoidosis. She thinks she might be having a gallbladder attack now. In the past, she has been a non responder to vaccines. She got out of healthcare for that reason. She did not respond to hepatitis vaccines. She doesn't have NDC/lot/expiration for those vaccines. The infectious disease doctor at the time told her she shouldn't be a nurse for that reason because it put her at risk for hepatitis. She was also nonresponsive to TB. She doesn't have NDC/lot/expiration to any of the ones she has been non responsive to. Last time she was vaccinated she had Swine Flu. She was having a lot of immunology problems going on. The doctor recommended her not get a flu vaccine. It was later discovered that she was a non responder to hepatitis and TB. She has had no flu vaccine since swine flu in the 70s. In 1988 she had the flu, and was in hospital for two weeks and almost died from that. One of the doctors she worked with died from flu. He was a surgeon. He died so she thought she was going to. She barely squeezed by. She was allergic to over 30 drugs'. No information on those drugs provided. She has had 5 episodes of anaphylaxis. She had been resuscitated twice. She has had 9-10 episodes of total body hives. The COVID vaccine knocked her down to 0. She has had to cancel her last 5 weeks of life. She was homebound. She couldn't get out of bed and get dressed. When she had COVID in Mar2020, she had an antibody tested 3 months later and 6 months later that both showed no antibodies. She has a B cell blood malignancy, and the b cells pump up the immune system. So she wasn't surprised she didn't have antibodies. Events caused emergency room visit and physician office visit. The outcomes of events dizzy, severe muscle weakness, and pain/ weakness in legs, She said she had a severe bilateral leg and sacral pain to the point where she had difficulty walking, nausea, diarrhea, had a fever of 102 for 5 days were recovering while other events were unknown.; Sender's Comments: Based on the information in the case report and a plausible temporal relationship, a possible causal relationship between the events "dizziness and muscular pain" and suspect drug BNT162B2 cannot be excluded. 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.

The night after receiving dose 1 of the vaccine, she didn't want to eat dinner, was starting to spit up saliva, and noted a new headache, and asked her daughter to sleep with her that night considering she was feeling poorly. She was restless all night, and then at ~5am her L arm began to twitch; she was still alert at this time but didn't realize her arm was moving. Shortly after this she lost consciousness, her eyes rolled back in her head, and she developed a frank GTC seizure. Her daughter called an ambulance, and by the time she was on the way to the hospital, she was awake and alert again. At the hospital, she was initially talking and able to answer most questions appropriately. She was noted to be afebrile, hemodynamically stable, without an O2 requirement, though with tachycardia to the 110s. She was found to have a leukocytosis to ~16, thrombocytosis to ~550, and LDH elevated in the 600s. Over the following day, her mental status declined and she became agitated and disoriented to place/time. CT chest revealed b/l multifocal pneumonia, for which she was started on pip-tazo. She underwent MRI brain (DWI sequence only) which did not reveal any obvious CVA. LP was performed on 1/29 at ~10PM; as far as we can tell, she had only received pip-tazo for antibiotics at this point. CSF studies revealed 220 WBCs (14% PMNs, 76% lymphs, 10% monos), 14 RBCs, Glu 59, Prot 145; GS 2+ WBCs, no orgs; india ink stain negative; Cx pending at time of transfer. Given concern for bacterial or viral meningoencephalitis she was transitioned to vancomycin/ceftriaxone/acyclovir. Patient was then transferred to another Hospital for further management. Micro was all negative or pending at the time of transfer. Shortly after admission to hospital she was intubated. Spine MRI was notable for longitudinally extensive transverse myelitis. All infectious workup has been negative with just two more pending studies for tuberculosis; autoantibody panel pending. She is now able to follow commands with eyes and mouth, but has not been able to move her arms or legs. We do not have high suspicion that this syndrome is related to the vaccine, given that progressive neurological symptoms started the week before vaccine, but thought it prudent to report given the time course.

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

COVID Vaccine I got my #2 Pfizer last Tuesday Apr 6....no problem at all with #1. The vaccination was in my LEFT arm, and the 1st day or so I didn't really have anything but tiredness. But the last few days have been very painful. I developed swelling on the RIGHT side of my face starting at the temple. That progressed down to the ear area the next few days and was quite painful. Since Saturday my tongue, lips, gums became swollen resulting in barely being able to swallow. Also rash developed and is getting worse. Additionally I ache all over and feel like a very bad case of the flu. I tried Tylenol Extra Strength in the beginning, but that seemed to only ease the pain for about an hour. Now I'm using Advil, which helps for several hours. Is there anything I can do to get relief. This is the 8th day....and it seems to be getting worse instead of better.

Chest xray showed radiographic evidence of pneumonia in RLL but without evidence of acute PE on CT scan. Patient was requiring 15 L of supplemental oxygen to maintain oxygen saturations and so was placed on high flow nc with better response 4/23 remained on HFNC 4/24 BCx from 4.22.21 growing out gram positive cocci in 1/2 bottles 4/26 HFNC at 50% and 45L 4/27 off HFNC and on 6 L NC/ awaiting PT evaluation 4/28 per, OT assessment -- pt dropped into 70's on 6L 02 with short walk to bathroom and toileting tasks. cues for rest and PLB needed to increase 02 into 80s. with a seated rest break over 5 mins 02 increased to 88% on 6L COVID pneumonia (first dose of Pfizer vaccine mid April) S/P remdesivir X 5 days, now on day 8/10 decadron but will go home on oral decadron Acute hypoxic respiratory failure slowly improving (not on home oxygen therapy) now off HFNC, was on 10 L oxymask. Patient's pulse ox this morning at rest on 4 L was 86% but improved to 92% on 5 L NC -will need 5L home oxygen therapy at discharge (new) -discussed the need to follow up with Dr or PCP to wean off supplemental oxygen.

Not on antibiotics Associated attestation - 04/22/2021 3:39 PM EDT Formatting of this note might be different from the original. Patient seen and examined. Current status reviewed with resident staff. I have reviewed pertinent physician documentation, laboratory and radiographic data. I have initiated therapies based upon this reviewed In brief 82-year-old woman with history of COPD, mediastinal mass status post VATS with benign thymoma with local recurrence presented with respiratory tract symptoms since 6 days prior to admission COVID testing is positive. In the emergency room she was noted be hypoxemic requiring 15 L of supplemental oxygen to maintain oxygen saturations. She is currently on high-flow feels much improved. I concur with exam as per Pulmonary fellow. Laboratories and imaging reviewed in detail. Impression COVID-19 infection COVID-19 pneumonia Severe hypoxemic respiratory failure requiring high-flow oxygen Thrombocytopenia which is new since 2016 and a poor prognostic sign History of benign thymoma with local recurrence COPD with exacerbation Doubt bacterial pneumonia Recommendation: Remdesavir 5 days Corticosteroids. Optimum dosing induration of corticosteroids has yet to be fully defined. Decadron 6 mg daily is reasonable however if develops progressive disease in the next 24 hr would escalate corticosteroids and would also add IL 6 inhibitor Additional minerals and vitamin supple role is unclear but probably benign If thrombocytopenia worsens may need alternative anticoagulation. Would check venous Dopplers Supplemental oxygen for saturations greater than 88% Daily PPI unless anticoagulation intensified then would go to q.12 hours Would favor discontinuing antibiotics

Lymphedema in her legs/ got lymphedema about 5-6 days after the second Pfizer vaccine; Legs were hurting like the devil; Legs were about six times the size they should be/ she has intense swelling; Peeing too much; Doesn't feel right; she is just so weak; This is a spontaneous report received from a contactable consumer (patient). An 82-year-old female patient received second dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Solution for injection, Lot Number: EL9261; Expiration Date: 31May202, NDC: 59267-1000-2), via an unspecified route of administration, administered on left arm on 06Feb2021 at 12:00 as 2nd dose, single for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included ongoing emphysema, ongoing breast cancer from 2007 (she did not take chemo, just radiation) and ongoing follicular lymphoma from 2014 (did not take chemo, just radiation. Cancer was in the bone marrow, said she didn't think that has anything to do with it, has had two operations) and bone marrow cancer. The patient previously took budesonide/ formoterol fumarate (SYMBICORT) she was using SYMBICORT, but her doctor switched it a few months ago, back to ANORO), prochlorperazine maleate (COMPAZINE) she takes a couple of times per month, takes 10mg when she feels nauseated and pseudoephedrine hydrochloride (SUDAFED) she takes when she needs it. Concomitant medications included furosemide (LASIX) at 40 mg, twice a day (one 40mg pill in the morning and one 40mg pill at night) from 1985 to an unspecified date and then increased to 80 mg, twice a day (two pills (80mg total) in the morning and two (80 mg total) at night) from on an unspecified date and ongoing for blood pressure; ongoing simvastatin (ZOCOR) taken for high triglycerides; umeclidinium bromide/ vilanterol trifenatate (ANORO). Patient thought she has been on Lasix since 1985 but can't remember back that far. She was taking Zocor for a long time and stated Anoro Inhaler was a fairly new medication. For Anoro inhaler, patient stated she pulls back the thing and didn't know, maybe it pinches a pill and inhales the white powder. Relevant family medical history included none and both parents were deceased. Patient stated that her oncologist does blood tests once every four months, a test for markers and stuff like that, CBC, metabolic panel and bloodwork every 4 months. The patient previously took first dose of BNT162B2 (Lot number: EL3246, Expiration date: 30Apr2021, NDC: 59267-1000-2) via unspecified route of administration in left arm on 14Jan2021 12:00 pm for COVID-19 immunisation. It was reported that, the patient has very sexy legs, but she doesn't anymore, says she got lymphedema about 5-6 days after the second Pfizer vaccine in Feb2021. She was now going to physical therapy, to bear her out and try to understand what she's saying. Caller states 30% of the people there that have had cancer and had radiation, get the same side effect she has had, some people have it in the arms, she got hers in her leg, says she has intense swelling, called lymphedema, says her legs look like they belong on an elephant. Caller said at the physical therapy place, 30% of people who have come in for help had radiation treatment for some kind of cancer, all have different kinds of cancer, but the swelling, the lymphedema, was the side effect they've all experienced. Caller states that no one has called Pfizer and let Pfizer know, states she won't take the booster, won't have anything to do with this, says it's too scary. Caller states she was an active person, never had a problem with legs swelling or anything like that and now, her look like legs that belong on an elephant. Caller states the correlation seems to be with radiation treatment, because she has bone marrow cancer, and other ladies have breast cancer, states the only thing we all have in common was different treatments but in her own case she had no chemo, but she did have radiation. It seems like with radiation this swelling was an after effect. Caller says it's 2 or 3 things, not just that they had cancer or radiation treatment, says those of us who had radiation also got this swelling. Caller states she never had any trouble with legs or anything, says she was an active person. States some people experienced this four days after the vaccine, says hers started six days after the vaccine, says she woke up one morning, and her legs were huge. States usually legs were smaller in the morning. Caller wonders what were the ingredients that causes swelling. Caller states she doesn't know how to explain it, says like overnight turned a switch on and now her legs were going to be big and fat and ugly. Caller states the reason she's calling was because at physical therapy last Thursday, other people who had the shot had the same side effect, says the only thing the lady said, she wasn't sure if she was a nurse or not, was the relationship was not with the kind of cancer, but the radiation treatment and the shot has been causing this and wasn't surprised. Caller says she was told that about 30% that they're handling now had the Pfizer vaccine. Caller thinks that's all they gave in the state NC, no other vaccine here, says it just seems to be with this. Caller states the lymphedema, hers was in her legs, others have it in their arms, she doesn't know why it's happening. Caller states about six days after the second shot, she can't remember exactly what day, about six to seven days, she woke up one morning, and her legs were hurting like the devil in Feb2021, stated her legs were about six times the size they should be in Feb2021. Caller states usually in the morning, the swelling goes down, but this woke her up out of the blue like zap, says no warning, no nothing, just one day she woke up and that where it was. Caller states her doctor increased Lasix, she used to take one 40mg pill in the morning and one 40mg pill at night, increased it to two pills (80mg total) in the morning and two (80 mg total) at night. Caller states she is now only taking one-and-a-half-pills this morning, because she doesn't feel right and she was peeing too much in Feb2021 and was not feeling right. She doesn't want to get dehydrated. Caller states she has a doctor appointment 10Jun2021 and was going to tell him she was taking less because she was just so weak in Feb2021. Says she was weak because she's taking too much Lasix, states she was taking two 40mg morning and night. Caller states she was just concerned, she has big legs, fat legs, she calls them fat. The patient not visited emergency room. The events result in the patient visited physician office. Patient reported that she has had no shots for four months however she was going to get the high dose flu shot on 01Oct2021. No relevant tests were performed at the time of this report.

She has never reported the side effects that she had, and her daughter told her should have done that. She found her papers and now she is 82 and she got her first shot on 05Mar2021. Patient reported as she felt fine then she got up to leave and her nose started running and it was just like water was pouring out and she made it up to the front and had Kleenexes in her pocket, then started coughing violently, her nose was running violently and trying to come out of her mouth, and she sat down on the chair there and she thought it will pass. she walked out to look for the person that took her out there and she saw exactly where they parked, and her eyes were so foggy she could hardly even see the car. She felt okay then the next day, she got up and her mouth was swollen, just her face and her lips were real swollen. However, her whole face was swollen. she didn't read the side effects to it and thought oh well, it's just some-thing. The next day her blood pressure was going off the wall, her heart rate was horrible, she called the doctor, they wanted her to go to the hospital. The doctor told her to take Benadryl, and Benadryl bothers her, and she said that made her worse. It made her worse. She further clarified made her worse as, it made her heart worse, dizzy and lethargic and she was already tired anyway. she would have been better off not taking it. Her heart rate, which is always normal or very good, and it was like it was going ninety miles an hour. she would get it to slow down then it would feel like it was going 90 miles an hour for a few days then she was really weak and her mind, which at her age she has a very good mind, they tested that, she was having trouble thinking. she guesses she would call it foggy. she wanted to sit down and pay bills, but she couldn't even concentrate. Her question is she had the first shot but now she's afraid to get the second shot because of what it did the first time around. she's afraid it will do double; they say it's a worse reaction. The card that she had, she said that her nose was running so bad, she shoved the card in her purse and looked in her purse later and she can't even find that card. She will say she can't get the flu shot because in the past, she had a very bad reaction from the flu shot, she was questioning whether to get this vaccine or not. It wasn't a live vaccine. she is scared to death of the virus and her kids wanted her to get it now, hurry, hurry, and she thought she would try it. Since she has reactions to suspect product, she's concerned about getting the second one. That was 10 years or more that she had the bad reaction. She is a person that her body is very sensitive. Her doctor has trouble getting medicines she can take. She has a bad back, she has tired every painkiller there is and she can't take any of them, they are worse than the pain. She has trouble seeing too. She keeps every-thing up, they don't give as many papers and it changes every week. She doesn't know how the people in the medical profession can take it, she imagines they change things on them overnight. She has macular. She couldn't understand with that shot why she could see whenever she went in and after she got the shot then everything was fogged when she came outside, but she knows it still wasn't as bad as getting the virus. She's still weak, but she's gotten better. They said she could leave, her nose started running and she started coughing. The girl said is she okay and thought she was, and she made it out then started coughing violently and that water was almost drowning her. She sat down in the chair, and it finally calmed down and got in the car, kept wiping that water with paper towels in her car and coughing and by the time she got home it was slowed down. She is more tired than usual, and her eyes haven't cleared up as good as they should. She doesn't know what that happened, it just came out of there and thought well god what has happened to her eyes. She has an appointment with the Optometrist at the end of April. Another thing she forgot, they are going to think she's looney, she started urinating that evening and she thought, this is not good, something was going on with her kidneys, because it was cloudy-like and had a chemical smell and then the next morning, she still smelled the same thing and her bowels were the same way, just smelled this chemical. That evening her urine was like that and the next morning she noticed it was like that into the next day, whatever was in there had to come out and then her urine and things cleared up. Started on 05Mar2021, that evening, when she urinated before she went to bed it was cloudy and had this chemical smell, maybe it was something she ate or something. The next morning, she urinated a lot and it was cloudy and the bowel movement, it was white-looking and smelled like the chemical and cleared up.

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

The patient went ahead and received the second dose Pfizer Covid 19 Vaccine and now its got the lumps going down it and they are tender. They are not really going down, still there. Wondering if there was some kind of anecdote to take care of it? The right arm was not as serious. The marks or lumps are sort of in the same places on both arms, like in the bend of the arm in the elbow. The patient doesn't know anyone else having this problem. Are these lumps on the caller's arms lymph nodes? The caller states she has been concerned about the lumps on her arms but not concerned enough to go to the doctor. The patient stated she has not talked to anyone at her primary care physician's office yet. The patient did not visited to emergency room or physician office. It was suggested the patient go to have the lumps looked at but the patient never did. The patient asked does Pfizer have options to get rid of the swelling, to treat it? Oh, Pfizer doesn't have anything for that, the patient was giving Pfizer a chance to treat it. No relevant tests done. The outcome of the events was unknown. Information on Lot/Batch number was available. Additional information has been requested.

My mother received the FIRST vaccine about 5:30 pm on Jan 13, 2021. She did fine and went to bed without any issues at all. When she awoke the next morning, she had a HUGE fever blister/cold sore on her bottom lip. She had not had a fever blister in decades. When she called me, I immediately took her Abreva. She treated it with that 4-5 times a day for about 7-10 days. It dried up and has finally gone away. I just thought this was such an unusual reaction. After doing some internet research and checking with several doctor friends, they had never seen or heard of this side effect.

Extremely swollen at the site of injection. She knew something wasn't right immediately after injection. A little white dot appeared where needle was inserted. Arm swelled. Initially thought it was common. But was not getting better and was painful and made her not feel well. She went to the doctors thankfully a few days after and was advised that it was infected. Could have been dangerous for her if infection continued to move through her body. She is now on antibiotics. This is strange to have an infection which makes us feel the needle was not properly sterilized? Something foreign entered at the time of that shot and we would like to have answers. The doctors could not even identify why this happened. Company Pfizer..

Severe and acute swelling of right hand. Hand was swelled to an extent that only the top first joints of the fingers were discernible and this prevented use or any movement of fingers. Swelling began on April 19th, late afternoon. Swelling peaked on the 20th very severe, and gradually subsided over following days. Now 10 days later, hand is again usable, with very little residual swelling, though still visible different from left hand. Took Advil for 4 nights beginning on the 20th, and everything seems fine now. Despite 30 years of rheumatoid arthritis, no such swelling event or attack had ever occurred for any reason, so we believe it was related to the vaccine, and felt we should report it. But everything seems fine now. No other reactions or side effects were noted.

The patient had an antibiotic for the bladder infection. Sulfamethoxazole was the name of the medication that was for bladder infection. They didn't give the medication for the viral infection. The patient reported that it was just a viral infection, it was not the Covid. Since then, she had her second dose of the vaccine on 10Apr2021 and from an unspecified date in 2021, her foot started, her foot swelled up and she didn't know. She takes lot of retention pills, so she thought maybe it was that.

The swelling on the left side from the foot all away up to the hip. She went to urgent care on 21Apr2021 (reported as "21st") and saw a doctor and she was tested and she had blood clots. Regarding lab test, the patient reported she had two infections and then she got the blood clot that was from her hip all the way down to her left leg to her ankle.

The patient was not able to get out of her wheelchair, even though she was normally able to do so on her own, and her blood pressure systolically reached 170.
