DEATH-My Mother received her second Pfizer vaccine on Thursday, February 18, 2021 and died three days later on Sunday, February 21, 2021, after being admitted to the intensive care unit at Hospital. After developing an adverse reaction that started with nausea and then got progressively worse, including vomiting blood, Mom was rushed to the emergency room where she was tested for Covid-19 due to hospital policy (neg. result) and admitted to the intensive care unit. Mother died on Sunday, February 21, 2021. NOTE: Mother was doing well with her heart and renal conditions until she received the second dose of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine on February 18, 2021, directly or indirectly causing her death three days later on February 21, 2021. It is unfortunate that we are all advised (sometimes ill advised), particularly those with underlying conditions, to get vaccinated without the benefits of knowing when the vaccine can cause more harm than good. For obvious reasons, the approval of covid vaccines was rushed and thus the Pfizer and Moderna Studies are not thorough and lack in data to support an all call for everyone to get vaccinated in the name of herd immunity. Without the appropriate data, My Mother is DEAD! Sadly, there are probably more unreported deaths caused by the vaccine. While you have immunity from liability, you still have a moral obligation to collect data and advise accordingly. My goal is to save lives by sharing my mother?s personal experience and death after receiving the vaccine with everyone I know through every available resource. It is unconscionable that I have to shoulder the burden of getting the facts out about your vaccine so that individuals with underlying conditions can make a proper, informed decision about getting vaccinated. Sadly, I receive over 100 questions a day via social media from individuals inquiring about whether or not they or their loved ones should opt for the vaccine. I am not a medical professional?this is your job! Until you assume responsibility, I will continue advising anyone with heart and/or renal conditions to stay away from any and all covid vaccinations. Instead of the massive all call for vaccinations, we need further information and data from additional studies that will give more insight as to when the vaccine can cause more harm than good, as in My Mother?s case.

A 76-year-old female patient received first dose of bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, solution for injection, lot: EN6203), via an unspecified route of administration in left arm on 27Feb2021 (at the age of 76years) as single dose for covid-19 immunisation. Medical history included ongoing fibromyalgia diagnosed in 1999; Covid-19 from 23Nov2020 to Dec2020 (went to the hospital because of pain in her side at night. Was told she had pneumonia and pleurisy, she got it 2 days after her husband did, but hers was a mild case); her husband had Covid in Nov2020 and died in Dec2020 and hemorrhoids (from having babies years ago). Concomitant medication included acetylsalicylic acid, caffeine, paracetamol (EXCEDRIN). The patient had no investigation assessment. The patient scheduled her first dose for 27Dec2021. The patient had questions about it, but the person administering it did not speak English and she said that initially she did not have any reactions while she was there. The patient received the first dose of the vaccine on 27Feb2021 and has a lot of adverse events. After the getting the shot, she woke up at 0400 and experienced shaking (whole body was shaking), trembling out of control, hurting from her neck down to her toes, her joints were achy, hurt, and stiff, her teeth were chattering and couldn't stop, and when she tried to stop that it made it worse, when she got up she had hard time walking, so much that when she had diarrhea, she had diarrhea on the floor, she also noticed that the color of the diarrhea looked red and looked like it had blood on it but she was not sure. After that, she sat down in a chair and noticed that it had blood when she got up and suspected that she had hemorrhoids and bleeding because of the diarrhea. She thought it was a result of the reaction to the shot. She noted that that she had COVID on 23Nov2020 and that she heard that people who had COVID might not need to get the second shot but it was only speculation so she was asking if this was true. She mentioned that she waited 90 days before getting the vaccine as per CDC guidelines and knew that the 2nd dose can be given for 42 days after the first dose. The patient's daughter in law who was an occupational therapist volunteered to fly in and take care of her after the second shot on 27Mar2021 but her 2nd shot was due on 20Mar2021 so she wouldn't be there until then. The patient was having a hard time rescheduling her appointment so asked if there was anything can be done. The patient would prefer not to take the second dose due to the side effects. The patient also reported that it looked like someone who had a stroke trying to walk again, her gait was off and she was kind of jerking. As she would take a step her foot would go down on a slant like it was skidding. She said that this happened one other time to her. It was like she was leaning forward and could not stop herself. When she was able to get up, she went into the living room and sat in her husband's chair and fell asleep until 15:00. When she got up, she noticed a lot of blood in the chair. The patient asked if this was allowed. She went home and took a couple of acetylsalicylic acid, caffeine, paracetamol because she did not have paracetamol (Tylenol), and she went to sleep. She had a hard time rolling and trying to get out of bed. She turned on her electric blankety and her heat. She said that by 0600 most of the shaking had gone away. She felt a little nausea, but got some dry toast. She said that she wanted to take a shower, but she started getting diarrhea from the injection. She fell in the bathroom and could not get herself up for over an hour because she was too weak. When she fell on the floor, she tried to get on a rug because she was still having the diarrhea on the floor. She said that it was everywhere. The next day she called her son and his wife they said that she could be alone for her second shot. She was scheduled for 20Mar2021 for her second dose. The patient had a hard time changing the appointment and her son could not come to stay with her until 27Mar2021. A friend told the patient that on the news it said that a second shot may not be necessary for people who have had Covid-19 already and she wanted to know if Pfizer has heard of this. The patient said that she was kind of wiped out for a couple of days (in 2021) and it was all over now. The doctor's office was aware of what happened and she was told to take extra strength Tylenol before and after the second injection to address these symptoms. The consumer considered the case as non-serious. The outcome of the event fatigue was recovered in 2021 while for the remaining events was unknown.

A 76-year-old female patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Right Arm on 02Mar2021 14:26 (Batch/Lot Number: EN619G) as single dose for vaccination. Medical history included joint replacements (specified as 1 hip done in 2007; right knee done in Jan2013; another knee was done in Feb2017; another knee was done in 1986); and in 2011, neck fracture. There were no concomitant medications. The patient had the 1st dose of the PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE and on 02Mar2021, she had sore on the injection site, experienced excess saliva production. On 05Mar2021, she experienced chills, feeling of heart attack: left arm pain, jaw pain, facial pain. She is worried to take the 2nd shot as she might have more symptoms on the 2nd dose. On an unspecified date, the patient had lower back, hips, knees, neck pain, eye socket hurts when rolling her eyes, sore stomach, and exhausted. It was also reported as follows: on 02Mar2021 after she got home from being administered the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine she had quite a bit of saliva in her mouth, it filled up quite a lot; and a bit of a sore arm for a couple of days but that was about it at that point. On Friday, 05Mar2021 she started getting chills and aches; and felt like she was having a heart attack: her left arm hurt and her left side of face hurt down in her jaw. She was afraid and considered going to the hospital but thought she was going to wait it out see what it is and it passed. She then once again got a lot of saliva in her mouth again. Over the next few days she developed aches that were primarily located in her joint replacements, it seemed like the aches attacked those areas of joint replacements in her hips, knees and where she had a neck fracture. She had a lot of pain and a lot of chills. She was never bedridden, but would lay down because she was exhausted. Her back hurt a tremendous amount. Another thing that happened is her eyes, when she would go to move her eyes left or right or up or down it seemed like her eye sockets just hurt to move her eyes; she did not have a headache; this whole indentation there with her eyes hurt to move them from one side to another. She also had a very sore, uncomfortable stomach; it was not an upset stomach; just seemed very sore, uncomfortable. At first that first part of 05Mar2021 she seemed a bit congested. She is very worried about second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine because of the first dose creating all of these difficulties. She does not know what she should be doing. She is scheduled to get her second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine on 24Mar2021 because she is leaving by plane on 29Mar2021. That only gives her like 4-5 days before she leaves and she knows that the other symptoms after the first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine did not start until 3 days later. She is concerned about that, because she is flying to take care of her sister; she is worried about the second dose because she does not like what she experienced with the first dose because she heard that the second dose will be terrible; she is worried about leaving and experiencing those horrible things. She reported that there are no tests/investigations relative to this report to provide. The only thing recently done was having X-rays of her neck on 24Feb2021 because of her neck issues with the fractured neck she had in 2011. Outcome of the events was unknown.

She was kept in observation status but was not admitted. She was scheduled to have another CT scan on 06May2021. She is not sure what they will do because the nerves are wrapped around it. She also mentioned that her doctor wants to do a biopsy. The pain was also running down to her ankle. She stated that she has had both of her hips replaced in the past. She added that her doctor will do an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). He will put in a drain if it has not shrunk. The doctor can't do anything because the nerves are all tangled up (2021). As corrective treatment, the patient was taking pain medication for the blood clot and pain through her side that ran down her left leg and to her ankle. Outcome of nerves are all tangled up was unknown, while outcome of the other events was not recovered.

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

Medical history included chronic migraines all her life. She said her migraines have let up as she has gotten older. She also had an irregular heart rate before, saying her irregular heart rate started in her adult life.

Chills; aches and pains; chest spasms; a fever a little shy of 101; hard to breathe; feel ill; activated all that discomfort; she thought she was having a heart attack; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient) reported for herself. A 77-year-old female patient received the first dose of bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), intramuscularly on 20Jan2021 12:30 at single dose in right arm to prevent covid. Vaccination Facility Type was Health department. Medical history included rotator cuff challenge. There were no concomitant medications. No other vaccine was administered on the same date. There were no prior vaccinations within 4 weeks and no adverse events were following prior vaccinations. Patient was calling about Pfizer Covid vaccine. She had the first shot on 20Jan2021.

She confirmed she was not admitted to the hospital. She had chills, aches and pains, it felt like an elephant was on her chest, she had chest spasms, a fever a little shy of 101. She went to hospital and the doctor there told her she had covid since she had all the symptoms. She confirmed she did not have covid and had a negative covid test. She had chest x-ray and an EKG since she thought she was having a heart attack. Reported her massage was primarily on her left shoulder, it was a deep massage on that area since she had a rotator cuff challenge, massage was focused on that shoulder. She was thinking that the vaccine activated all that discomfort since she felt it from the left part of shoulder, went down to her chest like a v, and back up to her right shoulder. Every time she took a breath she had a chest spasm and it was hard to breathe. The events required a visit to emergency room. For treatment, they gave her medication to take called robaxin, it was an anti-spasm, and 800mg of ibuprofen.

She had been in her usual state of health until tonight. Assisted living facility staff called. He mentioned that the facility staff had earlier noticed that she was dragging her right foot and and has been needing more assistance with activities. The patient was walking and did not feel well. She was lowered to the ground and had a witnessed cardiac arrest. The ambulance was called and she was reportedly found to have pulseless electrical activity. She was given Epinephrine and Amiodarone with return of pulse. The patient was brought to the Emergency Room and was evaluated by ER physician. EKG showed atrial fibrillation, ventricular rate = 66, RBBB with Brugada pattern. She was emergently brought to the Cath Lab. Cardiac catheterization showed normal coronary arteries but EF 35-40%. Repeat EKG showed atrial fibrillation with rapid ventricular response = 110, RBBB. Therapeutic hypothermia was initiated. The patient was admitted to the ICU on mechanical ventilation with TV 350 RR 14 PEEP 5. She is sedated with Propofol and Fentanyl IV. She is on Levophed IV. ABG showed pH = 7.22, pCO2 = 53, pO2 = 66, O2 sat = 88%. Lactate level = 9.5. WBC 8.8, Hgb 13.4, Hct 46, Platelets 138. Na 138, K 3.2, Cl 102, bicarb 20, BUN 16, Crea 1.19, estimated GFR = 44 mL/minute. Magnesium 2.7. Glucose levels have ranged from 273-312. Pro-Calcitonin = 0.26. Albumin 3.7. SGOT 262, SGPT 294. Troponin elevated at 47. Pro-BNP = 600. Urinalysis showed large blood. Chest x-ray showed vague peripheral pneumonitis. Endotracheal tube is in place. COVID-19 test by PCR is negative (2/5/21). COURSE IN HOSPITAL The patient was admitted to the ICU and was followed by Pulmonary/Critical Care. Patient was maintained on mechanical ventilation, sedated with propofol and fentanyl IV. Vasopressors were administered (Levophed IV). She was managed with therapeutic hypothermia. She was followed by Cardiology. Foley catheter was inserted for close input/output monitoring. Neuro checks, vital signs, daily weights, pulse oximetry, cardiac telemetry and fingersticks were monitored. She was given sodium bicarbonate IV due to metabolic acidosis. She was also given insulin IV drip. Potassium chloride IV was administered due to hypokalemia. The patient was given amiodarone IV. Platelet count was noted to be low but stable. Glucose levels were within acceptable range. Metabolic acidosis resolved. Hypokalemia resolved. Hypomagnesemia resolved. There were elevated LFTs which improved. Elevated CPK also improved. She was taken off hypothermia protocol. Sedation was decreased and she was able to open her eyes with verbal stimulus but unable to follow commands. Ammonia level was normal. Neurology evaluated the patient. EEG showed left periodic epileptiform discharges consistent with severe diffuse encephalopathy. Chest x-ray revealed right upper lung and left mid lung increasing opacity for which meropenem IV was started. Levophed was discontinued. Initially she had peripheral cyanosis, but this resolved upon discontinuation of vasopressors. Brain MRI was done demonstrating diffuse bilateral small and moderate-sized ischemic foci throughout the cerebellum and cerebellar region suggestive of embolism. There also was chronic marked atrophy and moderate small-vessel gliosis. CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING DEMISE Based on neurologic evaluation, her prognosis for meaningful neurologic recovery was thought to be extremely poor. The patient was evaluated and followed by Palliative Care. She does not have family members and had designated her neighbor friends as her power of attorney. They have known the patient for a ling time and they know that she does not want to live like this. A decision was therefore made for comfort care measures only. Compassionate extubation was performed on February 12, 2021. The patient passed away on February 12, 2021, at 6:39 p.m.

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.

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.

Medical history included first time she experienced bleeding was in 2013 because of aspirin. Stated that she decided it was a good idea to take baby aspirin so she took it on her own. She was told don't ever take aspirin ever again and she didn't have any problem until Nov2020. That was the first incident, in 2013, that told her she should not take blood thinner. They took her off the blood thinner in Nov2020. She had been taking aspirin. She lost half her blood; she lost it two settings. She sat down to take a bowel movement and was told she lost half of her blood. Not sure when she started Aspirin but she stopped it in 2013. It was mentioned that she could take aspirin. She was on a low dose of Eliquis for atrial fibrillation for prevention of a blood clots or heart attack. she had bleeding in the last year. The one that was the most was back in Nov2020; it was more pronounced. Mentioned that she went in on 12Nov2020 for the bleeding and then had to go back in because her legs were swelling. She stopped taking Eliquis in Nov2020 and from then until Apr2021 she had no bleeding. It was several years ago when she was diagnosed. She was riding her bike in the neighborhood, and felt too tired so she stopped at the doctor and went in and told them she felt weird, they couldn't get her BP and took her to the hospital and her heart rate was sky high like 250. They said she might had to have electric. She didn't have any pain but states she was psychologically freaked out by everyone running around. Mentioned that, she was first placed on dronedarone (MULTAQ) 400mg twice daily to treat her atrial fibrillation; she can't remember the year. After taking it as prescribed for some time she got atrial fibrillation again. She was told by the doctor it had lost its efficacy. Concomitant medications included Fenofibrate taken for blood cholesterol, Metoprolol succinate taken for blood pressure, Vitamins NOS, Ferrous Sulfate taken for anemia, Vitamin D3 all are ongoing.

Started with left hand being useless, then shaking. Shaking moved up to elbow. She tried to take off her sweatshirt and her arm froze--this is the last thing she remembers. Husband called 911 and she went to the ER. She had had a seizure and they found 2 brain lesions. She had a CT scan and an MRI in the ER. There was memory loss in the beginning and slurring of words. She felt a weighty fatigue. Was put on Keppra for seizures. Had consults with neurology, a neurosurgeon, a neuro-oncologist--all unsure of what exactly these brain lesions were. Back left lower part of brain: a small lesion, which was basically ignored Right side, towards front, part of brain, on top of and/or intertwined with motor strip: not sure what this is, a stroke or tumor (the neurosurgeon and neurologist had differing opinions) 2/22--1st MRI--shows 2 spots between these 2 MRIs the bloodwork, CT scan, and ultrasound are done--results normal 3/23--2nd MRI--larger lesion is bigger. Was not thought to be a cancerous tumor 4/23--3rd MRI--Looks like larger lesion is improving. A scheduled brain biopsy is postponed 5/20--4th MRI--the small spot is almost gone and the larger spot is much smaller, about 1/8th the size of the February MRI. According to the neuro-oncologist, this was an atypical stroke.

The patient received epinephrine, magnesium, antihistamine and steroids as treatment for the events. The patient was intubated and placed on a ventilator. The patient has not recovered from the events. The events were considered as a life-threatening illness (immediate risk of death from the event).; Sender's Comments: Based on the information currently available and the known product safety profile, a possible contributory role of suspect product BNT162B2 to the reported anaphylactic reaction cannot be completely excluded. This case will be reassessed upon receipt of additional information.

She is a shell of who she was and our family just simply misses her,I truly just wish that we would have had been warned of the possible risks to patients like her prior to getting the vaccine.No matter how small the possibility of adverse reaction.We would have chosen to keep her longer.

A little sore arm; She then developed pneumonia and a urinary infection; She then developed pneumonia and a urinary infection; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer or other non-health care professional. A 77-year-old female patient received bNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE, Solution for injection, Lot number& Expiry date not reported) via unspecified route of administration in arm on 03Jun2021 (at age of 77-year-old) as dose 1, single for COVID-19 Immunization. Patient medical history includes Memory Loss, Breast Cancer, Allergic to Sulfa Medication, Flexeril, Allergic to Clams and Shellfish, Pneumonia, Urinary infection. Patient concomitant medications were not reported. Caller reporting on behalf of his wife who received her first Covid 19 vaccine on 03Jun2021 and she developed pneumonia and a urinary infection. She was prescribed amoxicillin for her infection. The caller wanted to know how the antibiotic will affect his wife. He reports her second Covid 19 vaccine is past due by 2 weeks. He reports his wife gets pneumonia every year and it is not from the Covid 19 vaccine. She received her first Covid 19 vaccine on 03Jun2021 and was due for the second Covid 19 vaccine on 24Jun2021. This is discrepant from the above information that his wife is past due by 2 weeks but is documented as provided by the caller. She will not be able to get the second Covid 19 vaccine until the first week in Jul2021. She waited because she was prescribed a Z-pack for her pneumonia started on 29Jun2021.She developed a urinary infection, she has a history of getting urinary infections too. The doctor also wanted a chest x-ray to make sure that her pneumonia was gone. The Amoxicillin will double check that his wife has no more pneumonia and will clear up her urinary infection. She was hospitalized in 2019 because of a urinary infection. The doctor prescribed Amoxicillin and she cannot wait any longer to get her second Covid 19 vaccine. She must get her second Covid 19 vaccine before time runs out. He reports none of this has to do with the Covid 19 vaccine. These are problems that his wife has had before.Upon follow up when probing for information regarding the sore arm he and his wife experienced he reports the sore arm was minor, it was just where the injection was in jun2021. His wife had breast cancer and can only get injections in one of her arms. It was a little soreness, nothing, barely noticeable. He and his wife did exactly what the pharmacist said, they took a lot of fluids, drank Gatorade for electrolytes. He reports his wife is sleeping right now because she was at the doctor's office this morning. He reports his wife's doctor is being thorough before his wife gets the second Covid 19 vaccine. He is supposed to call the pharmacy to schedule his wife's second Covid 19 vaccine on 03Jul2021. The pharmacist told him not to cancel his wife original appointment because it would remove her from the system. He's will call on 03Jul2021 and hopefully his wife will be able to get her second dose on 05Jul2021 or 06Jul2021. At that time, she'll almost be off the Amoxicillin. He is asking what the effectiveness rate is of receiving the Covid 19 vaccine while on an antibiotic.The pharmacist told him the effectiveness is diminished for people who have taken an antibiotic. He believes the first Covid 19 vaccine provides 70% effectiveness while the second Covid 19 vaccine provides 95% effectiveness. His sister-in-law has titanium plates in her back and must take an antibiotic for the rest of her life and she received the Covid 19 vaccine. Advised in response to caller to discuss with Health care professional about the final decision about receiving the second dose to discuss the risks and benefits of the administration of the vaccine and the HCP is most familiar with the health history of his wife. Pfizer is unable to make treatment recommendations for individual patients. Patient underwent lab test and procedures include Chest X-ray result was it showed nothing, no pneumonia; SARS-CoV-2 test was negative; Urine analysis result was unknown; all tests done on Jun2021. The outcome of event was unknown. Follow up (29Jun2021): This is a follow up spontaneous report from a Pfizer Sponsored Program. A contactable consumer reported for a 77-year-old female patient (reporter's wife) that: New information include medical history, schedule of second dose, Lab test, event little sore arm, visit of physician office. No further information is provided or obtained.Information on lot/batch number has been requested.

DX: Pericarditis onset 05/07/2021 Clinician description of chest pain: She now has some constant dull central chest pain and vague shortness of breath similar to her symptoms she had with her pericarditis. She is concerned this is either a reaction to the COVID vaccination or may be recurrent symptoms related to her recent pericarditis and concern for rheumatologic etiology. CT Chest showed Cardiomegaly and small pericardial effusion, similar to 1/4/2021. Mild abnormality of CXR may be baseline. Mild abnormality in ECG. Elevated inflammatory markers and normal troponin. As above this easily could be a flare of a prior diagnosis of pericarditis due to being on a prednisone taper. She is under the care of a Rheumatologist. Concerned this is either a reaction to the COVID vaccination or may be recurrent symptoms related to her recent pericarditis on a steroid taper and concern for rheumatologic etiology.

At approximately 930am I arrived at Memory Care. I met with the director of the facility and she directed me to where my team would be setting up. My team consisted of (technician), (nurse) and I. As we were setting up, the director asked how she can help. I explained to her that we would need a designated area for patients to be monitored after vaccination for 15 minutes and maybe even longer . I also explained that we would need one of her staff monitoring while we vaccinate. She agreed, and proceeded to designate her staff and the cafeteria area, facing the vaccination station,the monitoring station. Throughout the day, nurse and I were both vaccinating,while the staff of the facility would monitor the vaccinated patients. I would also stop occasionally to mix the vaccine and check the temperature of the aero safe. At approximately 12:50pm, the director rushed in and stated that a patient is not responding, and that she had been vaccinated. At that point, I grabbed epipens and a thermometer and I also instructed nurse to grab an Epipen and come with me. We followed the director to pt's room. Once we got to the room, the patient was in bed and there were 4 staff members standing bedside and one of them turned and stated the patient has passed. At that point I asked the staff how long ago did the patient get the vaccine, they stated about 30 minutes ago. They also stated that the patient was a hospice patient and that the patient had declined, and was rapidly detiorating and had not eaten or drank anything all day . They also stated that the patient had been monitored for 15 minutes post vaccination. I then left the room and grabbed the patients COVID Vaccine intake consent form. I looked at the answered questionaire and all the responses were circled NO. Patient had a temp of 96.5 at the time of vaccination.The vaccine administration information for Immunizer Section was filled out by Nurse. I then proceeded to ask the director once again if there were staff that was monitoring her for 15 minutes, the director stated they had staff monitoring her. She also stated the Hospice nurse has to announce her death, so they waited for the Hospice Nurse to come. I then called Corporate and explained the situation. After speaking to corporate, I also asked nurse, if she remembered the patient. She stated that she did and at the time of the vaccination the patient was not alert, there were two staff members with the patient. She was non oriented and she kept closing her eyes. At that point, Nurse stated that she asked the two staff members with her if this is how she usually is and if its ok to vaccinate her. Both Staff members stated that it its ok,this is how she is. The Nurse then proceeded to vaccinate. At approximately 3:10pm, as I was leaving I spoke to the director, and one of her Staff members. Staff that the patient has actually not eaten/ or drank anything for the past several days, including today(01/18/21). Staff also stated that on Friday, Jan 15th,2021, they had informed the family that the patient was rapidly detiorating. Staff also stated that the family knowingly gave the consent to vaccinate her. She also stated that the hospice Nurse believes that the death was primarily caused by her detiorating state. She also stated that the hospice Nurse informed that the death was not due to the Vaccine. Per Lead Pharmacist at the clinic.

I was in A Fib; feel strange; felt like my heart was racing; I felt shaky; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). This 78-year-old female patient received first dose of bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE) (lot number: EL963), via an unspecified route of administration on 26Jan2021 12:00 at single dose in the left arm for COVID-19 immunization. The patient medical history included borderline high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Hashimoto's, hypothyroid. The patient's concomitant medications included rosuvastatin, levothyroxine sodium (LEVOXYL), hydrochlorothiazide and lisinpro received within 2 weeks of vaccination. The patient previously took ezetimibe (ZETIA) and experienced drug allergy. Patient did not receive any other vaccines within 4 weeks prior to the COVID vaccine. Patient was not pregnant at the time of vaccination. After sitting in recovery room for about 10 minutes following injection patient began to feel strange. Patient called the nurse on duty and said she felt like her heart was racing. The nurse took her BP and pulseox and administered a mini EKG. Then the nurse called the EMT on duty who gave patient a six leader EKG and said patient was in A Fib. Asked if patient had ever had A fib before, patient said no. Then asked if patient wanted to go to the hospital, patient said no. After sitting with the EMT for five minutes or so another EKG showed patient was no longer in A Fib.

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

Pneumonia after getting the COVID Vaccine; Pneumonia was related to MRSA; Very weak; mild fever; This is spontaneous report received from a contactable consumer (patient's husband). A 78-year-old female patient received bnt162b2 (BNT162B2), dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration at the age of 78-years-old, administered in arm on 25Feb2021 15:45 (Lot Number: EN6202) as single dose for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history included diabetes mellitus from 2011 (Verbatim: Diabetic; Diagnosed 10 years ago), rheumatoid arthritis from 1995 (Verbatim: Rheumatoid arthritis; Diagnosed in 1995), cardiac failure congestive from Oct2020 (Verbatim: Congestive Heart Failure), adrenal insufficiency from 1990 (Verbatim: Adrenal insufficiency; Diagnosed in probably 1990), atrial fibrillation from 2017 (Verbatim: Atrial fibrillation; Diagnosed 4 years ago). Concomitant medication included unspecified medications ("she takes lots of medications. Too long of list she probably takes 15 different medications, reporter chose not to provide them). No-other vaccines were given at the same time. She gets the flu vaccine every year, shingles vaccines, pneumonia vaccines every year but, has no idea where they were manufactured. Confirmed she did not get the listed vaccines at the same time she got the COVID Vaccine. The patient's husband and the patient (his wife) both received their 1st COVID shot on the 25Feb2021 and was scheduled for 3 weeks later. He got his COVID on the 18Mar2021. The patient got Pneumonia and was admitted to the hospital but he does not know the exact time the Pneumonia started. It developed over a period of several day started with a mild fever (in Mar2021) and after the 2nd or 3rd day her fever spiked and that's when she was admitted to the hospital. He reports his wife went into the hospital with Pneumonia on 18Mar2021, the day she was supposed to get the 2nd shot. It was also reported that Pneumonia was related to MRSA. She laid up in the hospital for 2 weeks, the weakness ("very weak") may have happened in the hospital or a few days before, date was confirmed to be on 15Mar2021. The event "pneumonia" was totally unrelated to COVID and now she is in a nursing home, she went in on 26Mar2021. She probably won't be able to have the 2nd shot for a couple of weeks. She was in there for a couple of weeks and still quarantined. He wanted to know will the fact that she is not getting the 2nd shot at the 3-week interval reduce the efficacy of the vaccine since she is getting the 2nd dose late. Does it make a difference with the effectiveness of the vaccine if she's going take the 2nd dose 3-4 weeks or even a month and a half rather than the usual 21 days interval? No treatment before going to the hospital other than calling the doctor and the doctor saying take her to the hospital (not reported if patient received treatment during hospital stay). No treatment done over the weekend, while she was in the nursing home. The adverse event pneumonia required a visit to Emergency Room. The patient was hospitalized from 18Mar2021 to 26Mar2021. Investigations included had a lot of blood work done, a CT scan, an X-ray on unspecified dates. He does not have any of the results but, the physicians have them. The outcome of the event mild fever was unknown, for very weak was not recovered while for the rest of the events was recovered on 26Mar2021.

On 2/18/21, 10 days after receiving the vaccine, I donated blood as usual. About 30 minutes later I was light headed, had abdominal cramping pain, bowel emptying and possibly fainted. I was transported by EMTs to the ER and was later diagnosed with inflamitory bowel by a CT scan. I took antibiotics and was feeling fine. My gastroenterologist performed a colonoscopy on 3/24/21 and the findings were that I was healed and tissue samples were normal. 3/25/21 I had an annual physical and was told I was in good health. Later that afternoon I began feeling light headed upon standing. In the night I called my health insurance hotline because my blood oxygen meter was beeping continuously. The Dr. on call told me to go by ambulance to the ER. When sitting or lying down, I felt fine and all the tests at the ER for my heart and my vital signs were good. A few hours later, they did a hest Xray and then a CT scan of my lungs which showed a saddle embulism. I had also thought I had bruised my knee if and when I fainted on 2/18 and 1o hours later a blood lot was found by ultrasound of my left knee. I was given blood thinners in the ER and then in ICU where I spent the next night. I am now taking Eleris. I was also given pantoprozole for GERD coughing the next day. I continue to have periods of abdominal ramping/pain, light headedness in waves and pressure in my head. I have disontinued the stomach medication with some feeling better with the lightheadedness.

It was kind of like she was having some coughing and stuff, but she thought it was not bad and that she could still go ahead and get it. She went ahead on 13May2021 and had the second dose. Consumer states that on the first day, she slept all day long- the whole entire day, she didn't even wake up. On the second day, the Consumer states that she had soreness in her arm. Then, she noticed she was getting really sick and started running a 99.9 temperature. It was getting worse day by day, and she kept coughing and getting worse. Then, on 18May2021, her husband took her to the emergency room and they just automatically treated her for asthma and allergy and sent her home. This was on Tuesday night. On Thursday night, she got so bad that her breathing was down in the danger zone at 220. She couldn't breathe. Her husband rushed her back to the ER and this time, they kept the Consumer and hospitalized her for a week. Her blood pressure was high. She clarifies normally her breathing on her peak flow meter, she can always do from 350-400. Well on Thursday night, her peak flow was all the way down to 220 and she could not catch her breath. Consumer states that she was admitted to the hospital and they had her on oxygen and blood pressure medication. She states that they did a bronch on her and still did not really come to a conclusion of what was happening. She was told it looked like it could be an infection in her lungs. Consumer states that she is having to see three doctors this week because of this since she got out of the hospital. She saw her medical doctor, Dr., yesterday who was very concerned because she had a recent patient that was about the same age as the Consumer- he was 75 years old. This patient had done the same thing, only he ended up taking pneumonia and dying with it. The doctor told the Consumer in her x-ray, her doctor could see that she had some pneumonia showing. The Consumer asked her doctor while she was in the hospital about the pneumonia and they refused to listen to anything the Consumer said, so Dr. told her that the Consumer needed to report this because she is still so sick. Consumer clarifies that she was hospitalized for a week and that she just got out on Saturday, 29May2021. While reporting the event details, the Consumer stated that she had and emergency call coming through and that she had to take it. Consumer had to end the call, stating she had to go and requested this call handler call her back. The patient was hospitalized due to events. The patient underwent lab tests and procedures which included blood pressure measurement, body temperature: 99.9, peak expiratory flow rate: 220 Units: x-ray: had pneumonia showing.

The Pfizer team responded as the patient should not get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine if patient had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose of the vaccine or if you had a severe allergic reaction to any ingredient of the vaccine. The decision to receive the second dose for any other reason cannot be made by Pfizer. The Pfizer team referred patient to speak to her healthcare provider about the risks of the vaccine compared to the risks of potentially not being fully protected against COVID-19 infection. The outcome of the events red blood bleeding was recovering, and the outcome of the events gastrointestinal upset, diarrhea, chills, and headache was unknown.

CONTINUING PALPITATIONS, SHORTNESS OF BREATH, FATIGUE, AND DIZZINESS.. . JUST ABOUT THE SAME TIME, i HAD A NEW HEART DEVICE IMPLANT. A-FIB SUSEQUENTLY DIAGNOSED. MY CARDIOLOGIST DOES NOT THINK THERE IS A CONNECTION. I WANT TO BRING THIS TO YOUR ATTENTION BECAUSE THERE MAY BE A CHANCE THAT OLDER PERSONS ALREADY PRESENTING WITH CARDIOMYOPATHY MIGHT BE SUSCEPTIBLE TO THESE SYMPTOMS WHILE NOT HAVING THE SAME LEVEL OF INFLAMATION AS IS BEING NOTICED IN YOUNG ADULTS. INDIVIDUALS AT MY AGE TEND TO HAVE SO MANY COMORBIDITIES UNTIL THEY MAY BE UNLIKELY TO NOTICE NEW SYMPTOMS.

On February 18, 2021, three days after receiving the Pfizer vaccine, patient was rushed to the emergency room with rapidly dropping blood pressure and difficulty keeping conscious. After being in COVID isolation for 24 hours, I saw her in a hospital bed and she looked like a corpse. The initial diagnosis was severe Sepsis with liver, kidney and heart problems and blood clots in both lungs. She had never had any of this before getting the Pfizer vaccine. Her WBC count was also very high. She was hospitalized for 10 days and then sent to a rehab facility for 14 days before returning to her independent living facility. She is now taking blood thinners for the blood clots which she didn't have prior to taking the vaccine. He did a miracle in sparing her life!

The patient was hospitalized for COVID-19 for 8 days. The patient underwent lab tests and procedures which included: Nasal Swab: negative on 24Dec2020, negative on 28Dec2020, negative on 31Dec2020, positive on 04Jan2021. Unspecified therapeutic measures were taken as a result of the event. The outcome of patient contracted COVID was fatal. The patient died on 12Jan2021. It was unknown if an autopsy was performed.

Day after receiving the vaccine, the patient complained of abdominal pain which worsened over the day. She went to the ED and was hospitalized. Abdominal pain complaints increased and continued, she decompensated rapidly, was intubated and subsequently died 3 days later. Imaging results showed, progressive ovarian cancer in the bowels. Blood culture revealed that she had E.Coli in her blood. It is thought that this is NOT related to the vaccine.

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.

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

They came within a few minutes, they started questioning about what was happening and they put patient to the emergency room and well they test patient for Covid as well naturally. It was negative, they did it 2 times and it was negative. When they took patient to one of the room in fact patient was frightened because they didn't told patient it was negative. Patient said she got the virus, they said not but patient had to take the oxygen as it's surge to scan on lungs. They said patient had allergic reaction to the vaccine. Patient was supposed to have it but at the same time there was the variant, doctor said patient was 70% covered, didn't have it but patient want to just check the status was with a person like her was allergic. Patient had shots in face and patient did tell them that she had all sorts of things on face. Now patient still had the white lips and couple of patches around mouth and naturally patient was worried like what to do. The patient didn't take the second shot because she was too nervous. Patient went hospitalization on the 25Feb2021 very early, and was relieved on 27Feb2021 (not sure). Reason of Hospitalization: On the University hospital.

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

The morning after Mom's first dose of the Pfizer shot, Dad woke up and found Mom lying on the floor next to the bed. Mom said, "I can't move my arm." Dad called paramedics who checked her. They said her vital signs were normal and left. On 2/9/21 in the morning my da awoke to see that Mom had large amounts of bubbly saliva pouring from her mouth onto her pillow. Dad called paramedics, who said this was a diabetic reaction. Mom had NEVER had anything happen like this before. Mom was very sleepy, could not be aroused, and made only gurgling noises. She was admitted to the hospital for care and therapy. She pulled her own IV out. Mom had to be restrained in the hospital and sedated, due to confusion and worsening dementia. By 2/18 when we spoke by phone mom's speech was abnormally slow and very repetitive. "I'm very tired today" was spoken many times. In morning time mom was able to follow basic conversation. Not so later in the day. Mom came home from rehab on 2/26/21. She was able to walk steadily and independently at home after her therapy. After a week or so, Mom began hitting the in-home caregiver. Dad's presence would calm her. In a short time Mom seemed not to know dad anymore, and would hit him and the caregiver when they helped her. She also pulled all covers off the bed and pulled clothes out of the closet, throwing them all over the room during the night. Mom was usually walking around the house during each night. On 4/16/21 Mom and dad were napping sitting up on the couch in the morning. Mom fell forward and hit her head on the hearth. Dad and caregiver gave first aid and called paramedics, who took her to the ER. Mom came home on 4/17/21. On 4/18/21 Mom pulled her catheter out in the early morning. In the afternoon Mom's appearance was concerning, so Dad called paramedics. They said that Mom's BP had dropped very low and took her to the ER. Mom was combative the next day in the hospital. Dr. adjusted her medications periodically to ensure that mom's care would be manageable when she would eventually be sent home. Minimal therapy was done due to dementia. By 5/3/21 doctor said that Mom is bed bound and needing total care. Her blood sugar spiked high despite special diet. Staff waiting for insulin order from doctor. 5/4/21 Doctor called Dad to say that Mom had died during the night.

Patient is an 80 y/o right handed female who is totally independent at baseline who received her Pfizer vaccine out of the country (1st dose 2/19/21, 2nd dose 3/12/21). She was reactive to both shots, reporting arthralgias, headache, low grade fever, chills. She had a rise in blood pressure later during the day of her shot as well as the next day (up to 180/70, from baseline of 130/70). She also had an episode of epistaxis several days after her first shot. She traveled independently out of the country on 3/31/21 to visit her son on a leisure trip. On 4/5/21 she had headache, dizziness/lightheadedness, and did not feel well, and her systolic BP was 198, after which she took additional 40 mg of lisinopril. Her BP subsequently decreased to systolic BP of 130 mm Hg on 4/5/21, but over the next few days she had labile BP with a range of BP of 125 to 171/ 58 - 68. She was meticulous in checking and recording her BP several times a day, and she increased her lisinopril dose to 40 mg po qd from 20 mg po qd given the higher than usual blood pressure range. On 4/10/21 her BP was as follows: 6:30 am, 148/60 (she took her daily lisinopril 20 mg po); 11:30 am: 132/52; 3 pm: 171/69 (she took additional lisinopril 20 mg po) after which her systolic BP decreased to 130. Then around 6:20 pm the same day (4/10/21), she had acute onset of headache, vomiting, left sided weakness, SBP 220, and was witnessed to have rapid change in mental status. There was no antecedent trauma to the head. EMTs were called immediately and she had loss of consciousness during the ambulance ride to the ED, after about 20 minutes of symptom onset, with agonal breathing and bradycardia to the 40s, but never lost her pulse. Upon arrival to the ED out of the country, her Glascow Coma Scale (GCS) was 6, she was rapidly intubated and stabilized. Head CT demonstrated massive intraparenchymal hemorrhage (140 cc) within the R temporal parietal and occipital lobes, with cerebral edema and 14 mm midline shift, associated with small subdural hematoma and small intraventricular hemorrhage within the temporal horn and body of the R lateral ventricle. They reported hyperdense "spot sign" within the intraparenchymal hematoma compatible with active hemorrhage, no evidence of venous thrombosis, no masses, no arteriovenous malformations. She had 2.5 mm aneurysm right that was thought to be incidental finding unrelated to her event. She was taken emergently to the OR on 4/10/2021 for decompressive R hemicraniectomy, which she underwent successfully with minimal blood loss. She had no coagulopathy and her platelets and hemoglobin were normal. She remained in the Neuro ICU for 3 weeks. She received a tracheostomy two weeks after her presentation, and was weaned off the ventilator. She is breathing spontaneously after 5 weeks from presentation. She remains in coma or minimally conscious state, with GCS score of 5-6 as of 5/13/2021.

She said 5 minutes into her drive she felt blood on her arm and put her hand in her shirt, and wiped it, saw blood. She said the bleeding was weird so she pulled over to look at her arm, and blood was coming from the top of the band aid where normally it would seep down from the bottom. She used five baby wipe, and wiped a lot of blood, until finally she thought it stopped bleeding. She was not light headed or in pain, it was a 45 minute drive and she got home and was still bleeding so she took her shirt off and put a towel around it to stop the bleeding and it finally stopped. She said she didn't think to report it until her doctor said to when she told him, he had said maybe the girl who gave her the shot hit a vein, but she should tell them. She said maybe she did hit a vein, because she had never had problems when getting a shot or more than a spot of blood in the past. She said one thing that may be important was that she had a couple of TIAs, many series (unable to clarify) her doctor friend assessed that with three MRIs and MRAs. She said she just refilled one of her medications, Clopidogrel, and was reading the instructions for it and it says it can cause excessive bleeding. She said that she was not bleeding so she didn't worry about it, that maybe that caused excessive bleeding. She had not had a second dose, but she didn't want to go through this again with the bleeding, though if it was just a vein or air that may not happen. She said she was very healthy, no underlying conditions at all, never had a problem before, her arm was not painful, she was not light headed. She said the baby wipe she had on her arm after the car ride was full of blood, and she still couldn't get the band aid off, so she wrapped her arm towel kept sopping up blood until finally it quit. She put another band aid over the bloody band aid, and it quit and she was fine. She had no injection site pain, no tiredness, no headache. Lab data included she had MRIs and MRAs, but there was no bleeding. The action taken for clopidogrel was unknown. The outcome of event was recovered.

Blood clots, strokes, death I believe that there were subtle unrecognized signs starting in March - off balance, slurred speech, confusion- thought to be diabetes related. I would have her check her sugar and it would be fine, but I dismissed it as a good thing that her sugar was ok. It didn?t cross my mind until the major strokes that it could be related to the vaccine. She had major strokes in May as a result of blood clots in heart and head. I strongly believe that her death is related to the vaccine. She was well, and had her diabetes under control, and three months after getting the vaccine, she was dead.

Concomitant medications include PANCREATIN (CREON) for Pancreatic disorder, AMITRIPTYLINE for Cerebral disorder and CYANOCOBALAMIN (B12-VITAMIIN). The patient was taking concomitant products creon because stomach and pancreas not cooperating with each other. In relation back up to brain thing drug for that is Amitriptyline.

4/10/21 ER HPI: 82 y.o. female who presents to the Emergency Department by paramedics from a local nursing home. The patient is an 82-year-old female with a known history of end-stage renal disease, diabetes, and coronary artery disease. She presented to the emergency room after being transported from a local nursing home. Apparently, the patient was acting a little bit more confused than normal and she was looking more short of breath than normal. The nursing home nurse stated that her oxygen saturations were in the upper 80s without oxygen and the patient looked visibly more short of breath than normal. Because of this, the nursing home made the decision to send the patient in. When paramedics arrived at the nursing home they placed 2 L of oxygen on her and her oxygen saturations went up into the high 90s. The patient does dialysis on Monday, Wednesday, Friday. She did not miss a dialysis treatment this week. The patient has had her coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine and several months ago did have coronavirus (COVID-19) at the local nursing home. The patient does have mild dementia and so is somewhat of an unreliable historian. Transferred to pleural effusion

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. Patient agreeable with this plan Transaminitis levels trending downwards. History of thymoma s/p VATS 2011 -outpatient follow up Positive blood culture on admission, contaminant in 1 of 2 blood culture bottles. Repeat blood cultures showed no growth. 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

The morning after I received the vaccine, I started feeling tired and my arm was quite sore. The following day, I had a fever of probably 100. I had chills and my heart rate and blood pressure went up. Since I have A-Fib, it was irregular. After several hours, my HR went back to normal and that is when I called my Cardiologist NP. She said that she thinks it's related to the fever I had. The next day, I felt a tad better, but fatigue and generally not feeling well lasted a few days. I feel that it took about a week before I felt normal again. About two months later, I was making plans to go out of town and I became very ill. I started having chills, fever, nausea and extreme fatigue. I may have taken some Tylenol. I was drinking a lot of water because I did not have an appetite. A couple days later I felt a little better so I did not contact my doctor, but I did go to an urgent care (05/22/2021) and had a COVID test. The test came back negative and I felt better two days later. On Monday, I started feeling bad again and I contacted my PCP, and I went to see him on Tuesday. He ran some blood tests and another COVID test, which came back negative. The fatigue just stayed around for quite some time. He monitored my sodium and chloride and they were both low so the doctor wanted them monitored. I was admitted into the hospital for two days. I was on liquid restriction. I had a bunch of tests ran that came back negative. I did have an AMA test which did come back positive. I am still on water restriction, but I am feeling much better. I'm a bit leery about receiving a booster shot.

In Apr2021, the groin hernia, big lump on groin, blockage in bowels, loss of fluids, possible hemorrhoids and postoperative pain resolved. Pfizer Biontech covid-19 vaccine (Tozinameran) was also considered suspect. Unknown stool softener also considered as suspect. In Mar2021, patient felt a big lump on her groin that was determined by physician as a hernia through physical examination and not an imaging test. On 09Apr2021 she had an outpatient surgery due to hernia in her groin. When she took acetaminophen as prescribed she had a blockage in her bowels and took unspecified stool softener which caused terrible diarrhea. On 16Apr2021 she went to the emergency room due to the diarrhea and had loss of fluids and just went home even when advised not to go home. On 18Apr2021 she was continued having diarrhea, she went back to the emergency room and had unspecified blood test that confirmed she was having a heart attack while on emergency room due to not taking her medications for the heart because was told not to take any medication while having diarrhea which she also temporarily interrupted her Humira while having diarrhea. Physician advised to admit patient to the hospital as she was told she was having a heart attack. On 19Apr2021, she had another stent because the artery was blocked from her previous stent. On 25Apr2021 she was discharged. She believed that her hospitalization was prolonged to nine days (as reported) due to she was bleeding a lot as a complication of ulcerative Colitis. She had a shot of covid 19 vaccine before at least one symptom happened therefore covid 19 vaccine was considered as co suspect product. It was unknown if patient was enrolled in a COVID-19 vaccine trial. On Jan2021, patient received first dose COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by Pfizer. On Feb2021, patient received second dose COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by Pfizer. The patient was treated with acetaminophen. The patient underwent other lab tests and procedures which included blood test: heart attack on 18Apr2021, laboratory test with unknown results in 2021.

The reporter's causality for the events of heart attack, groin hernia, big lump on groin, bleeding a lot as a complication of ulcerative colitis, diarrhea, blockage in bowels, loss of fluids, artery was blocked, possible hemorrhoids and post operative pain with humira 40mg/0.4ml (adalimumab) was no reasonable possibility. The reporter's assessment of the causal relationship of the events with the BNT162B2 was not provided at the time of this report. Since no determination has been received, the case is managed based on the company causality assessment. Manufacturer opinion is that there is no reasonable possibility that the events of heart attack, groin hernia, big lump on groin, bleeding a lot as a complication of ulcerative colitis, diarrhea, blockage in bowels, loss of fluids, artery was blocked, possible hemorrhoids and post operative pain are related to humira 40mg/0.4ml(adalimumab).

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

Per her hospital admission note, she stated that she felt fine, stood up, became dizzy and was able to lower herself to her chair then went unresponsive for a few minutes, but did regain consciousness. When she arrived to the emergency department, she was in atrial fibrillation with RVR with rate in the 140-150s. While the AFib is long standing, the RVR is new and potentially unexplainable. This was resolved with cardizem drip ending at 2220 on 01/25/2021. Alternatively, this patient is being put into VAERS as there are 2 other patients hospitalized with cardiac issues and received vaccine from the same pharmacy with the same lot number.

My mom received the Covid 19 vaccine on Jan 5, 2021 and became very about a week later. I was informed that she tested positive for Covid 19 on January 14th. One January 17th she became very tired and weak and would not eat. Hospice called me and told me that she was in a decline state. I saw her on January 25 and 26 and she was just sleeping and could not open her eyes. Her vitals were good and she seemed to understand when I talked to her - she would squeeze my hand and moan but she could not talk or open her eyes. My mom passed away on January 27, 2021 just 22 days after receiving the Covid 19 vaccine. She was very think to begin with and being to weak and tired to eat resulted in her losing even more weight. Some of the other residents were given fluids to help and they recovered. My mom was not given fluids. I believe there were 20 deaths in her care home for the month of January when they vaccinated. This was an alarming number of deaths for the home. The facility had very few Covid deaths in 2019 and 2020. I asked every week if they had any Covid and or Covid deaths and this amount was shocking to me and the workers there.

Sharp pain behind right knee. Subsided by evening. Went to The ER Sunday morning, Feb. 21. They x-rayed leg and found nothing unusual for a woman my age. Then they conducted a scan and discovered a blood clot behind my knee. Since then, I have had intermittent pain. The Doctor referred me to a hematologist which I will see this week. Prior to the vaccination have never had a blood clot. It occurred three days after the vaccination. Coincidence? I think not.

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.

STROKE; Facial droop; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable physician. An 83-year-old female patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 MRNA VACCINE), dose 2 intramuscular on 02Mar2021 (Batch/Lot Number: EM9809) as 2ND DOSE, SINGLE for covid-19 immunisation; and carbidopa, levodopa (DUOPA), via percutaneous j-tube from 2018 (Batch/Lot number was not reported) and ongoing, at unspecified dose for advanced parkinson's disease. Medical history included maternal history of strokes, and paternal history of strokes, both on unspecified dates. Concomitant medication included carbidopa, levodopa taken for an unspecified indication, start and stop date were not reported. Historical vaccination included first dose of BNT162B2 on 20Jan2021, intramuscular, with lot number: EL19261 for covid-19 immunization. The patient experienced stroke on Apr2021 with outcome of unknown, and facial droop on Apr2021 with outcome of recovering. Details were reported as follows: The patient felt like she experienced a mini stroke in Apr 2021. She had her Peg and J tube replaced on 16Apr2021 because they came completely out. Her husband was not sure if the pump was working states he could not saw the medication. Her husband had the pump disconnected from her. NCM advised her husband to run the pump over paper towels. Her husband did as instructed and could then saw the medication. He then connected patient to the pump and the pump ran without any error codes or alarms. Her husband wanted to make sure patient did not need a new pump since she got new tubing. NCM assured that the current pump seemed to be working fine with the new tubing. She left sided mouth droop in Apr 2021. She was taken to the local hospital via emergency medical services (EMS). She was then transferred to Hospital in for evaluation. She was in the ER awaiting a bed for 20 hours. The primary reporter did not know if any tests or medicine obtained as he did not receive any paperwork. After 20 hours, she was discharged from the ER home. She had a brain waves test a few days later to confirm if stroke had occurred. The primary reporter stated he did not feel the COVID vaccine was related to he events of Mouth droop and possible stroke. The patient underwent lab tests and procedures which included brain waves test: results pending on 21Apr2021. The action taken in response to the event(s) for bnt162b2 was not applicable, and for carbidopa, levodopa was dose not changed.; Sender's Comments: Based on information provided, considering the age and medical history of the patient, the event stroke is assessed as unrelated to BNT162B2. The event "facial drop" is assessed as symptom of the event stroke, hence not related to BNT162B2 either. The impact of this report on the benefit/risk profile of the Pfizer product is evaluated as part of Pfizer procedures for safety evaluation, including the review and analysis of aggregate data for adverse events. Any safety concern identified as part of this review, as well as any appropriate action in response, will be promptly notified to Regulatory Authorities, Ethics Committees and Investigators, as appropriate.

Six days after the second dose of Pfizer I started experiencing shortness of breath so I went to the ER and took a chest x-ray and had fluid in my lungs. Doctors discovered I had Atrial Fibrillation. In January I had an Echo Cardiogram and none of the previous described diagnoses were present then. I was admitted; doctors attempted to shock my heart back into rhythm several times but were unsuccessful. Therefore, I was put on Eliquis (5mg) and a water pill to get rid of the fluid in my lungs (and swollen ankles). I was hospitalized for 9 days where I was evaluated through numerous tests. Eventually it was suggested that I undergo the Watchman's Procedure to get off blood thinners. Everything went well with that surgery on Thursday May 20th; complications arose after the surgery: heart rate and blood pressure spike, lungs started filling up with fluid. Ended up in ICU for four days. I still have a problem with my lungs despite having no history of lung problems and I am now dealing with AFIB. This all started 6 days after my second shot.
