Patient with PMH of depression and GERD who presented 1/8 with constipation, abdominal discomfort and worsening dyspnea. Symptoms began around 12/29. COVID vaccine 12/19. Previously quite active, marathon runner, gained some weight over last couple years but was still in good enough shape to complete 10K in New Orleans in early February. In late February, had a flu-like illness, as did one of his friends from church. 2020 was hard on him - weight gain, decreased activity, stress, overall deconditioning. No issues apart from sore arm after COVID vaccine 12/19 but then starting getting abdominal fullness/discomfort around 12/29, which steadily worsened, also develop worsening dyspnea on slight exertion. No known sick contacts.. Work-up notable for pericardial effusion, pleural effusions. Echo with severe diffuse LV hypokinesis, concern raised for myocarditis. COVID PCR negative, serology negative. RVP negative. . Concern raised that COVID vaccine may have played a role in myocarditis. He was found to have the following conditions Acute heart failure with reduced EF NYHA FC II, non-ischemic cardiomyopathy. Myocarditis appears subacute per MRI hypertension obesity small pericardial effusion- asysmptomatic no pericarditis suspected obstructive sleep apnea. .Started on the following medications. Continue Carvedilol 12.5mg BID, Farxiga 5mg daily, Digoxin 0.125mg daily, Entresto 97-103mg BID, and Spironolactone 25mg daily. Per MD note. While it remains uncertain, team is doubtful COVID vaccine played a role in his cardiac issues. Given the MRI findings are not acute, more likely that the cardiac insult occurred weeks to months ago - potentially in the setting of the February 2020 illness. Perhaps his "deconditioning" in 2020 was related to worsening cardiac function. Nevertheless, will hold on 2nd COVID vaccine dose given absence of a clear explanation for his myocarditis. conversation with team will continue to determine if candidate for second covid vaccine. If consensus is that myocarditis pre-dated vaccine, might be able to proceed with dose 2 of vaccine.

The 2nd dose of Pfizer vaccine was injected on May 3rd, 2021 at a clinic. Minor arm ache, fatigue, fever/chills felt for approx. ~1day post vaccination and then felt back to normal. Around day 3 post vaccination felt sudden, sharp, stabbing pain within chest cavity which forced me to take shallow, rapid breaths to avoid triggering pain. Lasted a few minutes before subsiding. Following day or so pain returned as a dull, diffused pain and was felt intermittently for several weeks. Generally I run fairly often for fitness, however activity level was reduced due the ongoing chest pain. Wanted to resume normal activity levels, but decided to consult a Doctor for peace of mind due to pain taking so long to resolve. Scheduled virtual appointment (06/24/21) who advised an ER visit due to it being a potentially risky chest issue, and the fact that they could run the appropriate tests to diagnose it relatively quickly. Walked over to a nearby ER that afternoon and was hospitalized for 1 night, who diagnosed an "Unprovoked VTE" with a "Pulmonary Embolism" in Right lung. Was treated with Lovenox injections at hospital and currently taking Eliquis medication. As a side note: my brother (43yrs old) who lives in another country, was administered the 1st dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine on 05/24/2021 and subsequently fell ill, went to the ER twice and was eventually diagnosed with VTE/Bilateral PE. He is also currently taking Eliquis medication.

Pt was found in severe distress in the bathroom by his wife. He couldn't walk or stand, complained of being dizzy with slurred speech and was throwing up a lot. 911 was immediately called. The EMTs during their assessment said his BP was normal but when he was asked his name, he started saying the alphabet"ABC... XYZ". He was transported by ambulance to ER. Cat scan showed he had a bleed on the brain. The doctors told us it was because he had very high blood pressure, however where the bleed was, they said he wouldn't need surgery and that the body would reabsorb it over time. He was admitted to the ICU and has been there ever since. Several days later, he started having difficulty breathing and they discovered several blood clots in his right leg that had broken off into his heart and lungs. He had emergency surgery to remove the clots in his heart (approximately 10) and was given heparin in small doses over an 8 hour period so that it wouldn't cause the bleed in his brain to increase. The doctor should fill in the rest.

I had an acute anaphylactic reaction to a yellow jacket sting. Within 20 minutes of the sting, my whole body was swollen and airways began to constrict. I received epinephrine, type 1 and 2 antihistamines, and steroids, and the symptoms resolved. I am reporting this because I was stung by a yellow jacket in the same location a year earlier (pre-vaccine) and had no reaction. I had never had an anaphylactic reaction. Clearly, other factors could have caused the new response to what appears to be the same stimulus, but receiving an MRNA vaccine designed to stimulate immune response seems like a suspect worth investigating.

massive heart attack; knee pain; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). A 43-year-old male patient received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, lot number: EN6206 and expiration date not provided) via an unspecified route of administration, administered in right arm on 12Mar2021 12:00 as a single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included heart attack in 2019, heart disorder (Heart), Blood cholesterol abnormal (cholesterol), hurt his knee at work prior and torn meniscus. Concomitant medications included ongoing ticagrelor (BRILINTA) for the heart; ongoing atorvastatin for cholesterol and ongoing carvedilol (COREG) for the heart. The patient previously took clopidogrel (PLAVIX) for heart attack. The patient did not receive any other vaccine within 4 weeks prior to the COVID vaccine. No adverse events following prior vaccinations. The patient called about the COVID 19 vaccine. He received his first COVID-19 vaccine on 12Mar2021 and suffered a massive heart attack on the same day. After the event, his cardiologist reviewed video from the heart catherization to open the blockage and the cardiologist indicated that the area that was obstructed with this heart attack had not been obstructed 2 months ago. The cardiologist believed that the COVID 19 vaccine is the culprit in causing the massive heart attack. The cardiologist believed the area of the blockage was too dramatic. The cardiologist encouraged the caller to report the event and the cardiologist will offer his expertise in this matter if needed. The patient also tried to report to his local health department but is waiting on a call back from them. He reported that he had a heart attack in 2019. He was taking Plavix but after this heart attack his cardiologist has changed some of his medications. He reported he believes his medications were changed at his follow up visit with the cardiologist on 23Mar2021. He reported that he had continuous blood work done while in the hospital. They were monitoring his troponin levels. He also had a chest X-Ray, EKG and after the heart attack he had an echocardiogram to monitor the extent of the damage caused by the heart attack. He clarified that he did go to the emergency department on 12Mar2021, the same day he received the Covid 19 vaccine, but for knee pain. He received a pain relief injection of fentanyl that day. He had hurt his knee at work prior. He had previously had an MRI of his knee that showed a torn meniscus. He does not believe his knee pain on 12Mar2021 is related to the Covid 19 vaccine as he had already had an MRI that showed a torn meniscus. He had gone to the emergency department for pain management of his knee. He thought he would be given a lower strength pain medication but received Fentanyl. While the patient was at the emergency room for his knee, he suffered a massive heart attack. The patient clarified that he went to the emergency department because of pre-existing knee pain and while at the emergency department caller suffered a massive heart attack. The patient was hospitalized for massive heart attack from 12Mar2021 to 18Mar2021. The outcome of the event heart attack was recovering while the outcome of the event knee pain was unknown.; Sender's Comments: Based on temporal association, the causal association between BNT162B2 and the massive heart attack cannot be completely excluded. The knee pain was assessed as an intercurrent condition and is unrelated to BNT162B2. 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 RAs, Ethics Committees, and Investigators, as appropriate.

He was feeling weak, had chills, shakes, profuse sweating, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, dizziness and vomiting. He was unable to keep water down and stayed in bed. A little after 12pm, he complained of difficulty breathing and possibly not getting enough oxygen so I grabbed my equipment (since I'm a CNA) and checked his vitals. His B/P was very high ( 166/107), no fever (96.7), pulse was normal 72, and low respiration but oxygen was above 90. He said he needed to use the bathroom, I suggested using his urinal but he said he needed to have a bowel movement. Once he was in the bathroom, I went downstairs for a glass of water and then suddenly I heard a huge thump. I ran upstairs, knocked on the bathroom-no response but I could hear noises, so I opened the door and I saw he was face down on the floor, head under the bathroom sink counter, blood everywhere, and he was convulsing. I grabbed him immediately and moved him to his side (I had my fitbit on, it said it was 12:30pm), and he kept seizing. He looked discolored almost blueish color. I held him on his side, he vomited, making noises, but unable to speak, continuing to have a seizure. Seizure lasted three minutes. At 12:33pm, once he had calmed, I ran downstairs to find my phone. I was back at his side calling 911 at 12:35. Paramedics arrived 9 minutes later and took him to the hospital. My brother picked me up and took me to the hospital. Once outside his door, I noticed he was finishing taking X-Rays when he suddenly had another seizure.

Healthcare provider would have known the health situation and could access to information that better help inform the decision. From the CONS document on efficacy. Two shots were generally needed to provide the best protection against COVID-19 and the shots were given several weeks apart. The first shot primes the immune system, helping it recognize the virus, and the second shot strengthens the immune response.

1 day after receiving vaccine I experienced "brain fog". Approximately 10 days afterwards (around 2/25), I experienced symptoms of a minor stroke - I experienced lack of coordination in typing and later that evening experienced difficulty with speaking and comprehension, but only for a few minutes. A few days later, that weekend, I had some issues playing songs on the piano I had played before, making a lot of mistakes. About another 2 weeks afterwards, on 3/9/2021, I experienced more symptoms of stroke. For most of the day I had issues with typing, and later that evening I had some coordination issues with closing a soda bottle. On the morning of 3/10/2021, I continued to experience issues with typing and also had difficulty speaking and understanding my wife. At this point I went to the emergency room and was found/diagnosed to have experienced multiple TIA strokes.

After receiving my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine I experienced erratic heartbeats/afib. It started on Saturday, two days after receiving the shot and I debated on whether to go to the ER. I ended up seeing my cardiologist the following week but by then was feeling better. The irregular heartbeats last about 3 days, getting progressively better by the third day, but it was a very slow process. Obviously very scary since it was pretty severe at first and I didn't know if I was having a cardiac event.

First dose, I only had a sore arm, second dose, I had fever beginning ~12 hours after injection and lasting until ~36 hours after. The subsequent illness I reported in V-safe seems unrelated to my vaccination. I experienced fever (up to 102 degrees) and general malaise for three successive nights starting on June 4th, 2021 (2+ months after second dose). The fever only came at night and broke in the early morning each night. I had two COVID screenings on June 7th, both came back negative. The final fever occurred the night of June 6th. I continued experiencing malaise and general weakness and had some bloodwork done. My bloodwork came back indicating Fe deficiency anemia, and I have been experiencing this condition since. The cause is suspected to be due to overuse of NSAIDs in dealing with a bulging disc in my cervical spine from early March onward. I am scheduled for endoscopy to further investigate whether I am having bleeding issues causing the anemia. as previously mentioned, seems unrelated to vaccination.

On or about 0845 am, RN administered Covid vaccine (2nd one for patient). Attempted administration with syringe (a Haiou, 1ml, 23g, 1'', Lot 20JC2, Exp: 10-17-25) resulted in needle going into patient's arm, but the 2 piece retractable distal needle and hub separated from the proximal tube part of the syringe resulting in COVID vaccine dose being lost. None of the 1st dose entered patient's arm. With needle and distal hub still fully immersed in patient's arm, RN removed it and held pressure on bleeding. RN informed patient that needle failed, to which pt stated he was "shocked," and felt an "electric" sensation when needle was inserted. Patient tolerated well. Bleeding abated. RN administered a 2nd dose of vaccine to the patient with no problems on the same LUE, more medial by about 2 inches than the first attempt. Bandage applied to both sites due to scant bleeding. Patient tolerated well, but showed no emotion. Pt complied with all instructions, and RN thanked patient for coming in.

The night after my first shot, I felt pressure on my lungs, It felt as if I had the onset of Pleurisy as I have had that issue in the past. I figure I would wait to get it treated as it is not always picked up in the x-ray in its infant stages (based on past experience). On March 2, the pain became unbearable and I went into a urgent care center to get an x-ray and something to help with my issue. The urgent care did not take my x-ray they immediately sent me to the hospital strongly intimating that the problem was probably more serious than I thought. I was in the emergency room, they ran tests and made me comfortable enough as they also gave me a ct-scan which is when they found the bi-lateral pulmonary embolisms. I have since gone to my primary care physician and he directed me to a hematologist/oncologist. The event was found to be unprovoked. I am on blood thinners for 6 months.

Although it has been four months since I received the vaccine, I wonder if there is a connection. On 7/7/2021 I went to the emergency room with chest pain. They were able to rule out a heart attack, and with a CT scan discovered I had an acute pulmonary embolism in the lower lobe of my left lung. There is no explanation for where the blood clot came from as I am healthy and active, have had no recent surgeries, no evidence of blood clots elsewhere in the body, and no long trips that could explain the development of a blood clot. I am undergoing lots of tests but so far no underlying health condition has been discovered that would explain how a blood clot got into my lung. Treatment = Xarelto (blood thinner).

He had been experiencing chest discomfort after eating and activity for a month, that resolved with rest. Family history of ischemic heart disease. Pt is a smoker, HTN and dyslipidemia. I was just informed a patient received the Pfizer vaccine yesterday @ 1129. Arrived to ER @1700 with a STEMI. He went for a heart cath yesterday and CABG this morning. Per the cath report his LAD was occluded. I believe he was more aware of his symptoms after receiving the vaccine and that is why he finally came in.

He felt very bad the night he received the 2nd shot of Pfizer covid-19 vaccine on April 27. He even joked he probably would die that night. He also complained that despite his protest, the person who administered the shot insisted to inject on his shoulder joint. He developed a bigger-than-quarter-size bruise on his right inner arm the next day. He was feeling tired the following days. On May 4 around 3:30, I heard he was making loud noises. I came to his side immediately. At the time I thought he was making louder than usual snores. I nudged him gently but he didn't respond. After about 15 seconds, the sound stopped, and he had no breath. I then called 911 within 10 seconds, tried to do CPR on him. It took EMS 6 minutes to arrive even though we live very close to a fire station in a well-accessed urban area. EMS worked on him for about 30 minutes before transported him to hospital. They continued to work on him for a while. He never regained breath.

A 49-year-old male patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, solution for injection), dose 1 intramuscular, administered in left arm on 03Feb2021 (batch/lot number and expiration date not reported) at the age of 49 years old, as 1ST DOSE, SINGLE for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included COVID-19 from Dec2020 to an unknown date, vascular disease, bilateral stents placement, cataracts since he was born. Concomitant medication included gabapentin taken for an unspecified indication from an unspecified start date and ongoing. On 04Feb2021, the patient experienced left arm injection site pain. The patient experienced dizziness, falling, and couldn't go to work on unspecified date. He was treated by his (MD) physician, was given a CT scan, echocardiogram, and found to have some clots. He stated he has a history of vascular disease and had bilateral stents placed a year ago. He was placed back on an aspirin/Plavix regimen and referred to a neurologist because he has no motor skills anymore. He stated he failed all the tests for motor skills for his arms and legs. He was advised not to take the second dose of the vaccine and was diagnosed with neuropathy and autoimmune disorder (caller does not specify which disorder). He reported being positive for Covid-19 in Dec2020. He wanted to know what else he can do for his symptoms and is offering to be tested by Pfizer for treatment. The symptoms come in really hard seven days later. He actually had to go to the (ER) emergency and they worked on him and a whole string of doctors. He went to the emergency room and something was going on and wanted him to go to a family practitioner. They sent him to vascular, neurological and now they want to send him to a research center. It was a whole week after receiving vaccine before he began having symptoms. With the neuropathy and autoimmune, he cannot work like he did. He can hardly walk. Unspecified autoimmune was diagnosed last week. He can't remember the name of it. They told him not to take second one because the first one did what it did to him. It hurt a little and it was quick. The next day (04Feb2021), he said his arm was sore a little. He is only taking 4 medications and they looked it up. He did not think they were relevant. He was disoriented and fell and hit his head a couple of times. They ran an MRI on his head trying to figure that part out. That was done last week. He doesn't know the date and said it may have been on Friday. Results were good. The date he was disoriented was Wednesday 03Feb2021, when he took the shot. He has been disoriented and has been that way ever since. They kept him for 15 minutes to make sure no one passed out. He has been disoriented since then. He could not think clearly, and he could not do his job. He tore tendons in between ribs. He first thought he actually broke his ribs, but did not. There were two different falls. He cannot feel feet or anything. His motor skills are OK but when they did neuropathy test, they put needles in and shocked him to make his motor fire. His reflexes were really bad. He fell and hit elbow to keep from falling on face and twisted going down hitting 3-4 ribs on left side. It has been over 3 weeks now for his ribs. They are tender but they are not like the initial blow. It feels like they are healing. He fell and hit head a week ago. He was unsure of the exact date. He did not go to the emergency room with this one because the bed caught him. He fell and hit his head. All he has left is scabs. He cannot walk or lift anything (11Feb2021). That next Wednesday, he got ready to go to work and was so delusional and could not go in. He slept from 5:30 all that day and all that night. Then Thursday, he gets up and goes to work and goes slower, just to see what happened on Wednesday. He had fatigue and was disoriented. He did not provide start date or outcome for fatigue. He walked in and said either call an ambulance or he would go home. He went home and that was the last day of work. He then stated he laid in the car for 30 minutes and he said he is going to the emergency room. He went straight there that day. He had stents put in lower part of his body a year before. The neuropathy and the autoimmune kicked in 7 days later after the shot. The reason he went to the ER is because he thought it was his stent. He had bilateral, 4 of them. He was having chest pain and hurting all over on 11Feb2021. He thought he was having a heart attack. He was seen in the emergency room and released. It depends on how far he goes, how the chest pain worsens. Right now, he is ok, but when he gets up and moves around, it does the same thing. Within 2 months, he has lost 47 lbs and eats all the time and is still losing weight. He was about 200 something and was kind of built and now is skin and bones. He lost 6 (lbs) pounds within a week and is eating like crazy. Sensory nerves are all gone. If hit with a baseball bat and he would not feel it. It came on slowly almost that he did not know it was happening. That is why they want to send him to Privacy for a research center and he does not want to go. He never had this happen before. ER or physician's office required: 1st date was on Thursday, 11Feb2021, when he went to Privacy. He was having chest pain and hurting all over. He thought he was having a heart attack. He was released. The patient stated he wanted to change the information he had provided since he was not in his right mind since he had taken the wrong medication dose than the doctor had given him. He stated the medication dosage he wanted to change was for Amiripyin. He stated he wanted to say he told the representative the symptoms he had experienced was enhanced which they were yesterday because he was trying to fight everything and stay awake. COVID 19 vaccine: he stated the doctor did not want him to take the second dose of the vaccine. He stated one of the symptoms he had experienced after the vaccine that he wanted to change the outcome for is the neuropathy. He stated he is back to where he used to be and yesterday it was bad he could hardly walk or talk. He stated also the other symptoms he wanted to change the outcome for is the autoimmune. The patient has not recovered from neuropathy, autoimmune disorder, disoriented, can't walk or lift anything, chest pain, and sensory nerves all gone; while outcome of the remaining events was unknown. Information on the lot/batch number has been requested.

Every time he took a deep breath, it'd just hurt right below my chest and in stomach and skin became extremely prickly. He'd have like a low-grade fever like 99. This was 2 weeks after the second shot, so he went to the ER on 07May2021 and was given a COVID test, a fluid test and lab work trying and figure what he was having.

ER doctor gave him an antibiotic (ciprofloxacin) for infection like diverticulitis or diverticulosis. The doctor said the patient did not have a stomach infection, his tests showing such high levels for clots so the doctor did more lab work a PRC, CRT, TRP or CPR, a CRT lab work and some fiber or Fibrogen which was for thickening of blood.

This consumer (patient) reported for himself that a 49-year-old male patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE) at the age of 49-years, via an unspecified route of administration, administered in right arm on 23Apr2021 at 02:11 at single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included he and his family did have the COVID-19 virus in Nov2020 (with the COVID-19 virus in Nov2020 his fever had reached 103 degrees Fahrenheit). Concomitant medications were not reported. He was calling about the vaccine. He was scheduled for his second dose on 14May2021 but between his first and second dose, he developed pneumonia. He reported he and his family did have the COVID-19 virus in Nov2020. He was the only one that got sick after receiving the vaccine. He didn't know if it was coincidental or happenstance. He had been taking medication and hadn't been well enough to get his second dose. His primary care doctor and the doctor he saw at the urgent care both told him not to get the second dose until he was well. Now several weeks had passed and he wanted to know if he was ok to get the second one or will he have to restart and get the first vaccine again. The type of pneumonia that he had was called Valley Fever. He had been told it was because of the dry climate. He did have a chest x-ray and that was who the doctor knew he had pneumonia. He also had a blood test to confirm that he had the Valley Fever. He also had a COVID-19 virus test and that was negative. He actually thought he had the COVID-19 virus for a second time. The symptoms were exactly like the COVID-19 virus. He had a low grade fever, body chills, body aches, a cough developed and a really intense headache. He went to the urgent care with those symptoms and tested him and found out he did have the Valley Fever, a type of pneumonia. The doctor ordered the blood test to confirm the Valley Fever. His fever didn't get as high this time like it did when he had the COVID-19 virus. This time with the Valley Fever his fever was about 100 degrees Fahrenheit. He definitely had body aches, chills, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing. Since Nov2020 when he had COVID-19 he can say his lung capacity wasn't what it used to be pre COVID-19 virus. He was just able to go out and walk his dog and felt like he was breathing normally. Then he received the first dose and a week and a half later he got sick with the Valley Fever. He would like to get the second COVID-19 vaccine but wanted to know if he had to start the process over. He didn't take any medications and considers himself healthy. He would like to add that when he went for his follow up for the Valley Fever he had a complete blood work and urinalysis and interestingly enough his numbers came back that now he was in the diabetic range. He didn't know if it was related to the COVID-19 vaccine or not but thought that he should add it. He wasn't prescribed any medications for the diabetes he was told to change his diet. His blood sugar came back normally and his doctor told him when people have diabetes their blood sugar gets out of whack. He was going to change his diet for the next couple months. He went to the urgent care on 14May2021 with his symptoms, that was the same day he was supposed to get the second COVID-19 vaccine. He was asking if he was outside the window and need to start over or just need to get another shot. He said that he wants to get the vaccine. The events shortness of breath, difficulty breathing result in physician office. Outcome of the events was unknown. Information about lot/batch number has been requested.

A 51-years-old male patient received the second dose of BNT162B2 (COVID-19 VACCINE), via an unspecified route of administration, administered on left arm on 14Apr2021 10:45 (Batch/Lot number was not reported) at age of 51 years as single dose. The patient medical history and concomitant medications was reported as none. Historical v for covid-19 immunisation accine included the first dose of BNT162B2 administered on left arm on 24Mar2021 at age of 51 years for covid-19 immunisation and experienced no issues. Patient reported that after the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, he had a fever for 8 days and was diagnosed with pneumonia on 21Apr2021. Patient reported that he was tested for both Covid-19, Influenza A, and Influenza B twice on 19Apr2021 and 21Apr2021 and tested negative for Covid-19 and influenza both times. Patient reported that he had no pre-conditions and that he was feeling great the night before he received the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, 13Apr2021. Patient reported that he was planning to go to work following the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine on 14Apr2021. He began running a low-grade fever (102 degrees) on 14Apr2021 after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine and then his temperature flared up to 103.5 degrees on 15Apr2021. Fever: He received the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine at 10:45 on 14Apr2021 and about 2:00 in afternoon on 14Apr2021 was the first fever that was significant. The last fever he had on 21Apr2021, his temperature was 103.9. He was put on antibiotics for pneumonia. He contacted the on-call nurse for his company. The on-call nurse advised him to see a doctor on Saturday, 17Apr2021.He went to the doctor on Monday, 19Apr2021. The doctor only ran a Covid-19 swab for testing and a flu swab. His doctor did not do blood work and stated that the patientwas experiencing an ill effect of the Covid-19 vaccine and sent the patient home. He went back to the doctor on Wednesday, 21Apr2021. When he went back to the doctor, the staff performed a chest X-ray and ran 4 different blood works to see what the patient had. The second Covid-19 test that he received on 22Apr2021 was performed with both the rapid test and the test that was sent off. Both Covid-19 tests came back negative. SARS test on 22Apr2021 was negative. 508-3 High Sensitivity CRP: One of his numbers that was parts per liter, 3 is considered to be high risk and he had 300 (300+) of whatever it was on 21Apr2021. He went back to the physician and was given another steroid shot an additional prescription. He had been back to the doctor 3 times since then. Fever: His fever was 103 consistently after 15Apr2021. 508-3 High sensitivity CRP: This value showed abnormal. The results said that relative risk was greater than 1 mg/liter and high was greater than 3. 1000 CBC with auto differential on 21Apr2021: The abnormal results were red blood cells measured at 4.38; hematocrit measured at 13.82; MCHC measured at 36.4; Neutrophils measured at 84; Lymphocytes measured at 12; and absolute Lymphocytes measured at 0.57. He wore a Garmin and that it recorded that he received no more than 2-3 hours of sleep per night for 5 nights. He didn't know anything about pneumonia previously and that he had specifically told his physician's office everything about what he was experiencing. He told his physician about the wheezing in his chest (on 17Apr2021), cough (on 16Apr2021), fever, and chills (on 14Apr2021). His physician told him it was a normal reaction to the Covid-19 vaccine and sent him home on 19Apr2021. He then consulted Google and started to realize that his side effect were very atypical. Wheezing: When he breathed really light, the crackling would continue. If he breathed shallow, the wheezing was audible but if he breathed deeply, it was not. The pneumonia was in the left side of his chest. He was still being treated for the pneumonia. He has his last dose of medication tomorrow, 27Apr2021, and that he was also being released to go back to work tomorrow. Cough: He had a little cough that would then go away. The cough began late Friday, 16Apr2021. It was interesting because it wasn't a main part of the illness. The cough was just kind of a hacking cough every once in awhile. The cough was not continuous like go and go and go and stop. The cough came, went away for awhile, then came again.The cough being worse was relative. He was coughing more than he did on Wednesday 21Apr2021, Thursday 22Apr2021, and Friday 23Apr2021. The cough was consistent more so at night when he laid down. He would probably say that it was a different feel towards the cough but it was still a cough. The cough was still the same volume but not the same effect. Headache (on 18Apr2021): He had been waking up with headaches in the morning and going to bed with them at night. On Wednesday, 21Apr2021, the headache was due to dehydration from the fever and night sweats. Once he got away from the dehydration headaches, the headache got better but he had woken up with a headache the last few days and had a headache at bedtime a few nights in a row. The headache was usually a frontal headache and this morning, 26Apr2021, the headache was toward the back of his head. The headaches last a few hours until he started moving around. On Saturday, 17Apr2021 he experienced a migraine that would not go away. He didn't usually get migraines. The migraine lasted hours if not for a day and that the headache was something furious. Sunday 18Apr2021 was pretty much the same thing with the headache. Because of the massive fever, he couldn't eat anything at all (17Apr2021). The headache was mostly due to low blood sugar and dehydration. Appetite: His appetite improved after his second doctor's appointment on 21Apr2021. The second provider was a lot more straightforward and advised the patient that he needed to start taking care of himself and trying to force himself to eat. He forced himself to eat on 21Apr2021 and by Thursday 22Apr2021, he had a full appetite and was craving food again. Shortness of breath (Apr2021): Patient reported that the shortness of breath was just from being fatigued. Patient reported that he got out of breath from going up and down the stairs. He was unsure when the shortness of breath began because he was moving very little, but that he noticed the shortness of breath on Monday, 19Apr2021 when he got up to go to the doctor.On Friday 16Apr2021 and Saturday 17Apr2021, he had a really good break.On Friday 16Apr2021 from 9 AM to 1 PM, he had no fever and it was like the sun was coming out, then the fever hit really hard. The same thing happened on Saturday, 17Apr2021, but the fever free period lasted maybe a little longer. His fever returned and that the afternoon of Saturday 17Apr2021 was the worst he had been the entire time. On 13Apr2021 to get away from arm soreness, he did a few laps in the pool. On 13Apr2021 he had a new best time on the 100 in freestyle in the pool and that he felt really strong going into 14Apr2021 to get his second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. There was nothing that would have indicated that he had anything going on before getting the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. Up until Saturday, 17Apr2021, he had only been taking Motrin and just taking 2 tablets. He had no break in between fevers and chills and was not able to get ahead of the fever with the Motrin. There was a long stretch where the Motrin wasn't working and his temperature didn't get below 100 for several days. He tried to cycle acetaminophen in beginning Saturday 17Apr2021 to try to get the acetaminophen in between the Motrin doses. When he went back to the doctor on 21Apr2021, the provider told him that he could take 3 to 4 Motrin tablets at a time but not to exceed 4 doses per day. He never took more than 3 tablets. Motrin was generic ibuprofen. Night sweats (on 21Apr2021): The last couple of nights have been the same. He had a fan on to keep a little cooler and that it was 61 degrees outside and he felt the night sweats. He had a buckwheat mat that was cool that he put on the floor to stay cooler with the night sweats. Come Thursday, 22Apr2021, he said we're done with this and he couldn't sleep from it (Apr2021). Last night, 25Apr2021, he knew that he had night sweats because he was sweating at night and the temperature in the room was 64 degrees. AEs did not require a visit to Emergency Room. AEs required a visit to Physician Office for fever, wheezing, cough, shortness of breath, chills. Outcome of events was unknown.

Patient is a 51-year-old male with a PMHx significant for hemochromatosis, sarcoidosis and morbid obesity who initially presented to the ED for evaluation of chest pain, cough and shortness of breath. On presentation, vitals were mostly unremarkable other than some mild tachycardia and tachypnea. Patient was able to maintain adequate oxygenation on room air but was placed on supplemental oxygen for comfort. Blood work was mostly unremarkable. ABG was not particularly concerning. Troponin was negative x3. Patient underwent chest CTA which showed basilar atelectasis bilaterally and scattered groundglass opacities and scattered borderline size hilar and mediastinal lymph nodes consistent with patient's known sarcoidosis. Patient was treated with supportive care and monitored overnight. He was able to maintain sufficient oxygen levels. On the time my evaluation, patient continues to complain of bilateral rib pain worse with deep breaths consistent with costochondritis. I discussed with the patient that he will need to continue to take NSAIDs on a scheduled basis to help with his discomfort. Additionally I offered to prescribe cough medicine. I discussed possibly discharging the patient on steroids however he states that he makes a point to avoid taking steroids due to his history of hemochromatosis. At this point, patient no longer requires care in the hospital and can be discharged home. Patient is agreeable with the plan and all questions have been answered appropriately.

On 5/20/21 the patient was at home with his mother when he had acute nausea, light-headedness, and abdominal pain. He presented to the ED by ambulance. Excerpt from ED notes od MD follows: "Initial ED interventions: iv fluids, low dose iv ativan, iv toradol, iv zofran. ED course: patient arrives very anxious, writhing on bed, difficult to redirect. With chronic tonicity, not seizing. Mother arrives, and he recognizes her, seems to be consoled somewhat by her presence, but she is unable to direct him, and describes his behavior as irregular, and events acute this evening at her home. Patient rests, and then HR decrease to 50s on monitior and patient found to be pulseless - I immediately start chest compressions, and achieve ROSC after PEA arrest with administration of EPI/compressions. Patient intubated per procedure note without complication. L femoral central attained per procedure note without complication. CPR performed over ED course intermittently (always PEA arrest) with ROSC achieved with administration of EPI, EPI drip started in addition to sedation meds, and iv fluids. No obvious STEMI on ECG to administer lytics, with suspicion of dissection and AAA prominent. I am able to stabilze and accompany patient to CT suite, where I recognize B/L massive PE immediately. I discuss with Dr. of Cardiology, who agrees with admininstration of alteplase. I disucss risks with mother who consents verbally. Patient without response to alteplase, and with continued pattern of PEA arrest following bradycardia. I discuss etiology of presentation with mother,and that patient is with very poor prognosis of survival, and likely poorer prognosis of neurological status, and patient is made comfort care, and fentanyl drip increased, patient is taken off of ventilation and drips. Pronounced deceased at 22:00. MDM: Initial concern for but not limited to appendicitis, AAA, diverticulitis, renal stones, pyelonephritis, musculoskeletal pain, pancreatitis, toxic ingestion, ACS, obstruction, perforation, sepsis (2/2 PNA, UTI, meningitis, intra-abdominal infection), AAA, dissection, PE - as ED course progresses, differential narrows and consider more likely PEA arrest secondary to ACS, PE, dissection, AAA, necrotic pancreatitis, tension PNX (less likely). Considered but do not suspect seizures, stroke. Imaging studies reviewed - CXR with ETT in place, no acute pathology. CTA chest/A/P remarkable for massive proximal B/L PE. Labs reviewed. ECGs without STEMI, with sinus tach initially, LBBB after initial ROSC, and then AFib in RVR on subsequent ECG. Per above, patient suffered massive B/L PE, with subsequent cardiac arrest, despite heoric efforts including thrombolysis. Death called art 22:00. Diagnosis: massive B/L PEs, PEA arrest. Disposition: deceased."

Exactly 5 days after the second dose of the Pfizer covid-19 vaccine, I suffered an ischemic stroke. There was a blood clot in my brain that was broken up after tPA was administered about 2 hours after the symptoms of the stroke set in. To date (May 30) I have had many tests, including 2 MRIs, CT scans, TEE, heart monitoring etc. So far, it has been called a "cryptogenic stroke" because there is no cause. The only thing different was the vaccine I received 5 days before the stroke.

Expected symptoms ended within about 24 hours from the shot. But 48 hours after the shot there was massive nerve pain in the (left) shoulder of the shot, the pain radiated throughout deltoid, chest, shoulder, neck on the left side. This nerve pain lasted for about 36 hours and then dissipated (I know it was nerve pain because years ago i experienced something similar in the other shoulder for unrelated reasons). But the shoulder was very sore and weak for 2 full weeks, during which i saw an orthopedist who diagnosed bursitis caused by SIRVA. For weeks afterwards the shoulder felt like it returned to normal . However in the first 2 weeks of June my whole left arm began getting sore and tired. In midjune i noticed that my shoulder was atrophying and the front deltoid was not activating (my biceps was doing all the work). Orthopedist ordered an EMG (June 29), which confirmed axillary nerve damage to anterior deltoid. I?ve been doing physical therapy since mid June and as of today July 25th it is beginning to recover but it could take months to a year and may never fully recover.

Blood clots in right leg below knee; he passed out from pain; pain in his right knee; he couldn't bend his knee at all; knee was swollen; couldn't walk/limping around; his knee more stiff; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). A 53-year-old male patient received the first dose of BNT162B2 (Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, lot number: EN6206), via an unspecified route of administration, administered in the right arm on 21Mar2021 at 10:00 as a single dose for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history included ongoing Factor V Leiden heterozygous, allergies to mushrooms from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing and a torn meniscus in his right knee and he had surgery 3 to 4 years ago. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported. The patient previously took Cephalexin and Percocet and experienced allergies. The patient did not have COVID prior to vaccination and has not been tested post vaccination. On 22Mar2021 at night around 2:30AM, the patient woke up and started walking to the bathroom and he passed out from pain. He had pain in his right knee. He thought he had torn his knee again. He had surgery 3 or 4 years ago for a torn meniscus in his right knee and he thought he had torn his meniscus again. He passed out, his wife found him and he went back to bed. In the morning, his knee was still very very sore, he couldn't bend his knee at all. He took an Advil between 6:30AM and 8:00AM. He hadn't taken any medications prior to the COVID-19 vaccine. His knee was swollen but the pain was manageable. He couldn't walk, he was on crutches for about 24 hours then the swelling started coming down and he put a brace on his knee. He could then walk without the crutches but it was still painful. The next day he had pain in the back of his knee. He thought the pain was caused because he had put the brace on and had been using the crutches. Like he had made his knee more stiff from not using it. He was limping around and the pain was bearable. At that point, the pain was maybe a 4 on a scale of 1-10 where his pain had been a 9 on a scale of 1-10. He took another Advil and he realized the pain in the back of his knee wasn't going away. He went to see his family doctor and his doctor was able to get him in that same day for an ultrasound. The ultrasound showed 2 blood clots behind his right knee. The patient had blood clots in right leg below knee. The week of the report, he got an appointment with a hematologist. The hematologist reviewed his case and the doctor isn't 100% sure the blood clots were from the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine but the doctor isn't ruling it out either because it happened within 24 hours of receiving his first COVID-19 dose. He hadn't done anything strenuous before getting the COVID-19 vaccine, nothing that he thinks would have caused the blood clots. He would like to add, what he thinks is relevant, is that he is positive for Factor V. He reports he has one copy and Factor V only impacts about 3% of the population. The hematologist thought that he might be prone to developing blood clots. The hematologist reports that he has had patients who have had the COVID-19 virus who have developed blood clots. Maybe it's possible that the COVID-19 antibodies were trying to build up his immune system to COVID-19 and it created something similar to having the COVID-19 virus. If he is predisposed to blood clots then the COVID-19 vaccine may have precipitated the blood clots. His second COVID-19 vaccine is scheduled for Sunday, 11Apr2021. He had talked to both his family doctor and his hematologist and they both thought he should be ok in getting the second COVID-19 vaccine. He was prescribed blood thinners. If the second COVID-19 vaccine caused more blood clots the blood thinners would help him. He was asking if there is any additional information or guidance on receiving the second COVID-19 vaccine after his reaction. The pharmacist told him that the COVID-19 vaccine trials were all done in the left arm. He received his vaccine in his right arm and his right knee was affected. If he gets the second COVID-19 vaccine he's getting it in his left arm. He was prescribed Eliquis 5mg take one tablet twice daily. The outcome of the event blood clots in right leg below knee was recovering while the outcome of the other events was unknown.

Shortness of breath; pericardial effusion requiring drainage/fluid around the heart that made the heart beat super fast to pump up blood; inflammation of the heart sac; fluid overload on the lung; fluid around the heart that made the heart beat super fast to pump up blood; This is spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient) reported for himself. A 53-year-old male patient received bnt162b2 (Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 Vaccine), dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration, administered in left upper arm at 53 years old on 20Mar2021 08:00 (Lot Number: EP7534) as single dose for covid-19 immunisation. Medical history included ongoing high blood pressure from 2018, he says he has had this for roughly 3 years. Concomitant medication included amlodipine at 5mg once a day for high blood pressure from an unspecified start date in 2018 and ongoing, he says he has been taking this for a few years, maybe 3 years. No additional vaccines were administered on Same Date of the Pfizer Suspect or within 4 weeks. He was not sick at the time of vaccination previously. The patient was calling about the Pfizer COVID vaccine. He says he is just trying to get answers because what he experienced was very alarming to him. He got the vaccine at 8:00 in the morning. He says a student did it, she took a long time, she was very timid. He says she was being supervised by an RN. He experienced shortness of breath on 07Apr2021, he says it was in the morning that the shortness of breath started, because he did make an appointment to go the the COVID test, he got the COVID test around noon that same day. He says he was diagnosed with pericardial effusion requiring drainage and inflammation of the heart sac. He says he had fluid overload on the lungs that required IV diuretics. He says the symptoms started after the vaccine, and these symptoms were what was causing the shortness of breath. He says the fluid around the heart made the heart beat super fast to pump up blood. He says the fluid triggered the shortness of breath. He says when they removed fluid the breathing got easier but then it settled into the lungs. He says Tuesday he dropped off the cliff, Tuesday or Wednesday night, one of them, for two nights he was on oxygen, they gave him a diuretic for the lungs, after 12 hours he started feeling better, continued to get better and better after they moved the fluid from the lungs with Lasix through the IV. He says he doesn't fit the profile of someone who would develop these issues, he has no history, no cancer, no autoimmune disorders. He says they say well maybe it is the virus but the doctors currently have no specific answers for the caller. He says they told him that someone having this would be the profile of an IV drug user. He says he never uses drugs, he does not fit a profile like this. He says he wants to be fully vaccinated. He says the timing is suspicious with the vaccine shot. He says it is 50/50 on the doctor's opinions, half say to get the shot, the other half say don't do it. He says they say the second shot is worse. He says he is confused as to what to do, that he understands this is a big experiment, he wants the vaccine but not at the cost of another visit to the hospital. He says he was at the hospital on oxygen, he couldn't get out of bed for a day. He says the doctor said there was a study in (Withheld), the caller says he did a lot of research in the hospital for 6 days, that says the demographic is younger but it is heart issues with men for the heart with the Pfizer vaccine. He says they are studying it. He says a couple of doctors referred to that, the ones that say don't get the shot, not yet. He says he can't pinpoint it exactly. He says it could have been a fluke but the timing is very suspicious. He says that because of some of the side effects, his week in hospital, he was concerned for his life, he wants to be fully vaccinated but not at the cost of going though this or cost of killing him. He says he does not want to go through this again, he will not get vaccinated unless he is comfortable. He asks should he switch to (Withheld), is that a safer bet, (Withheld), should he just skip it all together or not. He says he knows they are a different type of vaccine. He says they had to remove fluid form his pericardial sac, he had 2 days of draining, they drained a liter from around the heart so it could beat normal again. He says apparently some of the fluid went to the lungs so he needed oxygen. He says this all happened Tuesday morning, he came back home yesterday, he looks pretty good. He says he just wants to do the vaccine and asks should he take the second one or not. He would like to get any information. He says the fluid in his heart was starting to build up on 05Apr2021 or 06Apr2021, he started getting symptoms that come and go. He says he was admitted to the hospital on 19Apr2021 and his procedure was on 20Apr2021 so his shortness of breath resolved the day after the procedure. He says he was hospitalized from 19Apr2021 to 25Apr2021. After reporting shortness of breath he says that was it, basically. He says he went to the nurse treatment center on 19Apr2021 because he thought it might be COVID but this event landed him in the hospital. The events required a visit to emergency room, he said he went to the emergency room on 19Apr2021 and a doctor told him he might not make it. The patient said he was scared and he didn't know why the doctor would have said that to him. He said he did not have an appointment date to physician office yet, he was waiting to get a call back. Relevant Tests included: Rapid COVID test, Date 07Apr2021 Result negative, Date 15Apr2021 Result negative, Date 19Apr2021 at Patient First Result negative, Date 19Apr2021 at the hospital on admittance, Result negative. Standard COVID test, Date 19Apr2021 Result negative, Date 15Apr2021 Result negative. He says at the hospital there was a lot of tests done on his heart and lungs, nothing was coming back scary, they were coming back as perhaps viral markers. The outcome of shortness of breath was recovered on 21Apr2021, of other events was unknown.

A 53-year-old male patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), at the age of 53-year-old via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm Left on 20Apr2021 11:15 (Lot Number: EW0153) at 1st dose, single for covid-19 immunisation. The patient medical history was not reported. The patient received no other vaccines within 4 weeks prior to the COVID vaccine. Prior to vaccination, the patient was not diagnosed with COVID-19. Since the vaccination, the patient had not been tested for COVID-19. Concomitant medication included famotidine (PEPCID AC). The patient previously took flu shot in Oct2020, prilosec [omeprazole magnesium] for seasonal allergy and experienced drug hypersensitivity. The patient experienced unexpected bruising near injection site. Bruise was the size of the bandaid, approximately 1" x 2". Bruising had persisted for more than a week now. The patient had never experienced bruising like this with other vaccines. He would like to rule out possible thrombosis reaction before second shot. He did not have bruising at any other locations other than the injection site. Bruise was purple and red splotches and has now progressed to mostly yellow. He believed the discoloration was a reaction to the vaccine and not the result of the needle. The shot itself was painful but patient felt minimal pain/stiffness following the shot. The event start date was on 20Apr2021. No treatment was received. The outcome was unknown.

Seriousness: Does not really know what it is, it could be thrombosis; Caller has experienced redness/redness in thumb and finger tips; tingling/tingling in left hand; decrease sensation in his finger tips/numbness and decreased sensation in left hand; He is still experiencing all of these and has gotten worse; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable physician (patient). A 53-year-old male patient received bnt162b2 (BNT162B2), dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm Left on 13May2021 (Batch/Lot Number: EW0183) in the morning between 10:00 and 11:00 am as single dose for covid-19 immunisation at the age of 53-year-old. Medical history included an open reduction internal fixation, surgery on his right clavicle 5 years ago, which is what made him want to get the vaccine. Concomitant drugs included Multivitamin, Vitamin A and Vitamin D. The patient had an exam in December and all of the test results were normal. On 16May or 17May2021, the patient has experienced redness in thumb and fingertips, numbness, and decreased sensation in left hand, tingling in left hand. Symptoms have been ongoing for 10 days; it has progressively gotten worse. It was reported that the symptoms started 2 days after getting the vaccine on 13May2021, was 16May2021 or 17May2021. He takes multi vitamins and minerals and thought it may be related to that. He takes high doses of Vitamin A and Vitamin D. He actually thought it was due to the Vitamin A and Vitamin D. He stopped the vitamins for a few days. Treatment included: Thought maybe, apart from the vitamins, it may be because he was washing his hands so much that it may be from that. He used Aveno lotion to try and lubricate them. The outcome of event Thrombosis was unknown, outcome of other events was not recovered. The reported considered the events were related to the vaccine as it was the left finger tips, especially the thumb, compared to the right. That's why he thinks it is related to the vaccine. The clinical course was reported as: The redness was first, then the tingling. He doesn't remember the exact day. The numbness and decreased sensation were afterward. He is still experiencing all of these and has gotten worse. The thumb on the left hand looks pink and wrinkled. When comparing the right see the difference tell they are different. Seriousness: Does not really know what it is, it could be thrombosis. The redness in the thumb and finger tips is in the right as well but is not as bad as in the left. Follow attempts needed. Further information is expected.; Sender's Comments: Based on plausible dose -event relationship post vaccination and no other alternate explanation the causal role of BNT162B2 cannot be excluded for the reported event of thrombosis. 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

This is a spontaneous report received from a contactable consumer (patient). A 54-year-old male patient (height: 193cm, weight: 99.79kg) received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, batch/lot number: EN6207) via an unspecified route of administration at right upper arm on 18Mar2021 18:00 (54-year-old at time of vaccination), at single dose, for COVID-19 immunization. The patient's medical history included blood pressure, teeth cleaned (Shortly before the shot, went to the dentist to have teeth cleaned. Directly from Dentist went to pharmacy. Went to pharmacy's Drive Thru to pick up a little antibiotic from the dentist. It was 4 capsules of Amoxicillin. He was supposed to take the Amoxicillin before the dentist office visit, but he forgot to do that. Therefore, soon as he left the dentist office he went to pharmacy to pick it up so he could take it. While he was there, was offered the COVID 19 vaccine and that it was the last shot). Concomitant medications included atenolol tablet from 2016 (been taking for 5 years) and ongoing for blood pressure, and ascorbic acid/ cyanocobalamin/ ergocalciferol/ nicotinamide/ pyridoxine hydrochloride/ retinol/ riboflavin/ thiamine mononitrate (ONE-A-DAY). No additional vaccines administered on same date. No history of all previously immunizations. No prior vaccincations wtihin 4 weeks. He got the shot Thursday and by Sunday, many different side effects were coming in. He has had side effects from the COVID VACCINE, but initially he does not want to file report, just thinks that everyone needs to get the shot. He does not have complaints. He is wondering how long the side effects will last, and when they go away. States that he is being treated as he has gone to the doctor's. Also states that he made an appointment with the doctor and almost went to the emergency room a couple of times. Right after the shot, he was getting in the car and his right leg started hurting (on 18Mar2021). It didn't go away for a couple of days. It went away but then noticed his shoes started feeling funny. He wasn't looking at his feet, put his shoes on they felt tight. Then he started to look at feet more. Below his knees, his legs are swollen. Swelling started within 2 to 3 days after the vaccine. The swelling is really severe when standing. Everybody at work has seen how sick he is and his legs. Swelling in the legs has him concerned, thinking maybe it's a blood clot. He was given medicine and would like to see it go away. He keeps his legs up. He has other side effects (all in Mar2021) and is having flu like symptoms. He basically has the flu. He has never had the flu shot. This is the first flu shot (He referred to the COVID vaccine as the flu shot as documented. However, confirmed suspect product as Pfizer covid vaccine) he has had that he knows of. He is questioning if he should get the second shot. He feels a little dizzy. Quick questions get him confused and that it comes and goes. Lungs felt full, gasping for air: not now but, since the doctor gave him antibiotics (unspecified injections, he was given 2 shots at the doctor's office, one in each arm), his lungs felt full. At times he was gasping for air. It went away but thought he was going to die. Now when he gets winded, it feels like he has a dry cough. Gets winded easily. The doctor ordered him an inhaler, Symbicort, but it was very expensive, so he did not get it at that time. He never picked it up because it was too much money. The fluid is not there anymore and he does not feel like he needs this as does not feel like it needs to be cleared. He is having wheezing. He can now take deeper breaths. Fatigue: initially, that he was feeling tired within 1 or 2 days, but he did not recall the next day feeling that way (later stated it was within 2-3 days he started to feel tired). He is still tired. Unable to clarify time frame of fatigue further. He feels bloated and full. Hasn't really eaten but feels real full and bloated. Hot and cold flashes started occurring about the same time as the other symptoms. He had these last evening. He does not get the flu very often and doesn't take the Flu shot. This is the closest thing he can remember having a pretty good episode with the flu. He was also given prescriptions for 2 new medications: Triamterene 37.5mg daily, for leg swelling; Clindamycin, 300mg, twice a day, an antibiotic. The odd thing is that it seems like his eyes are big, like really, really big, like they are really open. It is like big eye balls. States that he is just sick and his body is reacting to getting better. He has not been to work in the last 3 days. States that he is fine, just worried about work. Patient asked for personal advice about going back to work. The outcome of "his right leg started hurting" was recovered; outcome of "below his knees, his legs are swollen/ swelling in the legs/ put his shoes on they felt tight" and Fatigue/feeling tired was not recovered; outcome of other events was unknown.

I went to the ER on 4/17/21. Had Pulmonary Embolism in both lungs. I was in the hospital 3 days. I have no personal history of blood clots and no family history of blood clots. Now I must be on blood thinners the rest of my life, because the science does not know? I understand from the doctors that 4 out of 1,000,000 cases are happening with the Pfizer vaccine. Why is this information not being released to the public? I almost died from the Pfizer vaccine and am not permanently disabled by it.

No immediate adverse reaction, however, began developing nightly fevers/profuse sweating on June 11. This continued for two weeks with increasing symptoms of loss of appetite, nausea, abdominal pain, tingling sensation on scalp before going to ER. Visited urgent care on June 16 and bloodwork results indicated elevated white blood cell count and eosinophil count. There was a question as to whether patient had been subjected to a tick bite, so doxycycline was prescribed. After several days, patient returned to urgent care for follow-up bloodwork (June 20th). Results showed WBC and eosinophil count continued to escalate. He went to ER on June 25th and was admitted to the hospital for 5 days. During his visit at Hospital, he was seen by a team of specialists: cardiologist, pulmonologist, hematologist, infectious disease doctor. Multiple tests were run, as the doctors started broad to eliminate certain diagnoses - i.e., bone marrow biopsy, heart cath, CT scans, x-rays, thoracentesis, etc. Patient had fluid around his heart and lungs and was diagnosed with myocarditis. He had no previous heart issues nor family history of heart issues. Test results indicated no abnormal blockage or other issues, other than inflammation and his heart strength was at 27%. I am unable to access his account, as it was disabled after his death. An autopsy is being performed and results are pending; however, the question(s) at large: what was the condition of his heart at the time of his death and was this vaccine-related? Did his myocarditis get worse? Did his heart muscle weaken further and rupture? Please let me know if the autopsy results are needed and where to send them.

2/2/2021- seen in Ed with c/o intermittent fever following 2nd dose. Redness to bilateral upper extremities, c/o some pain with urination, weak. V/S stable, afebrile in ED. Assess for infection. No significant abnormal labs (see below), hydrated and discharged. 2/4/2021- arrived in ED with c/o vomiting, seen earlier by PCP that day labs drawn. Shortly after arriving in the ED copious amouts of emesis noted, the patient went into full cardiac arrest and CPR was started. -Please see HPI above, in addition after intubation the patient coded again. More epinephrine and lidocaine were given. CPR was resumed. We did obtain ROSC and targeted temperature management was pursued. He is placed on a lidocaine drip and a right femoral central line was placed by myself. At this time, norepinephrine drip was initiated given his continued hypotension. Post intubation chest x-ray suggests possible abdominal pathology and once the patient was stabilized further, he was sent to the CT scanner where CT head without IV contrast and CT chest, abdomen and pelvis with IV contrast was obtained. He did lose pulses once in the radiology suite. This was brief. IV fluids were initiated and he received over 2 L of crystalloid therapy. He continued to be hypotensive in the emergency department and vasopressin was added. He also had a single dose of Neo-Synephrine and IV push fashion to help bring his blood pressure up. CT scan reveals probable bilateral aspiration pneumonia/pneumonitis and dilated loops of small bowel without a transition point and pneumatosis involving loops in the left upper quadrant. I did try to initiate consult with critical care and possible transfer, however he continued to be unstable and coded requiring CPR multiple times. He was given IV bicarbonate given his prolonged CPR state and pH. Ultimately, the family decided to make the patient comfort measures only given his critical illness. Shortly after making this decision he did pass away in the emergency department.
