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

Patient was a previously healthy 60 year old male who developed an acute change in mental status on 4/9/21 after first receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine; he was ultimately diagnosed to have hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, and other underlying etiologies were ruled out (malignancy, infection, autoimmune disorders) and improved only after initiation of HLH-directed treatment with etoposide and dexamethasone. He is currently in remission. Patient was initially admitted in 4/2021 for fevers, night sweats, weight loss, and worsening altered mental status. Patient symptoms reportedly started in ~ 4/2021. Per patient's wife, there is a temporal correlation between the patient receiving the COVID-19 vaccine and his symptoms worsening. He was admitted in 4/2021 for stroke-like symptoms after his 1st dose and was diagnosed with a TIA. He was cleared to receive the 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine (received on 4/25/21), and he reportedly became worse after this dose as well. He underwent an extensive workup over the last 2 months to further evaluate his symptoms. He was found to have mediastinal lymphadenopathy on imaging. He had an excisional biopsy of these LNs which were ultimately reactive in nature (negative for lymphoma). There was no evidence of a lymphoma or a lymphoproliferative disorder. Patient was ultimately readmitted to hospital on 5/17/21 due to worsening symptoms. His labs were notable for anemia/thrombocytopenia. A bone marrow biopsy and aspirate to rule out suspected lymphoma was performed and his labs/bone marrow were consistent with a diagnosis of HLH. He was found to meet 6/8 criteria (splenomegaly, peripheral blood cytopenias, elevated ferritin, hemophagocytosis noted on bone marrow, fevers, and elevated Soluble IL-2). The hope was to do a PET/CT and LP before starting therapy to rule out secondary causes of HLH. However, his clinical status continued to deteriorate before these tests could be performed and so he was ultimately started on Dexamethasone and Etoposide as per HLH protocol. These therapies were started on June 3rd. His mental status significantly improved once the medications were started. A PET/CT and LP on 6/7/21 were finally obtained ; however, both did not show overt evidence of an underlying trigger for HLH. "Prominent mediastinal, hilar, and RP LNs seen on previous imaging were not FDG-avid." It did show a few small, mildly FDG-avid patchy B/L pulmonary opacities which were likely infectious or inflammatory for which a follow-up CT Chest was recommended. The flow from the CSF was grossly unremarkable. CSF PCR and other viral studies were negative. Of note, it is uncertain at this juncture if these tests are negative because they are truly negative, or if they are possibly falsely negative since patient was started on treatment before they were obtained. Currently, patient's mental status has significantly improved with Dexamethasone and Etoposide. Per the HLH protocol (which is a scheduled over 8 weeks), patient was started on Dexamethasone 10mg/m2 (equates to 20mg daily) and Etoposide 150mg/m2 biweekly for the 1st 2 weeks. Pt received his 2 weeks of biweekly Etoposide while inpatient (6/3, 6/9, 6/11, and 6/15). The remaining Etoposide doses are to be given weekly and his next dose would be ideally due on 6/22/21 (today). He also completed his 14-day course of Dexamethasone 10mg/m2 on day of discharge (6/16/21). Pt was advised to reduce his Dexamethasone to 5mg/m2 (or 10mg daily) on 6/17. Of note, ID was contacted on day of discharge who recommends that patient be placed on PCP PPx while on HLH therapy. He was recommended to start Mepron on 6/17/21.

Suspected to have lymphoma ruled out but ruled out; bone marrow showed hemophagocytosis, and labs showed high soluble IL-2 receptor (33,903). Met criteria for hemophagocytic lymphohystiocytosis (HLH); other causes triggers of HLH (infection, cancer, autoimmune disorder ruled out). Positron emission tomogram (PET) scan negative for malignancy. Patient improved only after starting Etoposide and dexamethasone, now (as reported) in remission. The events resulted in doctor or other healthcare professional office/clinic visit and emergency room/department or urgent care. The patient was hospitalized for 68 days for the events. The events assessed as serious (life threatening and caused/prolonged hospitalization). Outcome of the events at the time of report was resolving.; Sender's Comments: Limited information precludes a comprehensive causality assessment ,however causal of BNT162B2 vaccine cannot be excluded for the reported events 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

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

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

Day of second dose, chest pain and headaches increased significantly. EKG performed by PCP and Emergency Room confirmed abnormal. Diagnosed with acute myocardial infarction, emergency angiosplasty performed on right coronary artery. I felt this all to coincidental given timing and duration of side effect with 1st and 2nd shot. All EKGs in past, including one in August 2020, normal, and then abnormal six months later.

I called 911 because he had a history of CHF and I didn't want his pulse to drop and not have other trained personnel on hand if CPR was required. I gave him water to try to raise his BP and rechecked his BP after 5 minutes and it raised to 127/83 with a pulse of 64. He stopped sweating and his color came back in his face at that time. The EMT's rechecked vitals and ended up taking him to the ED to run tests.

I had a stroke on April 30, 2021, 10 days after the second dose of Pfizer on April 20, 2021. The stroke was the result of a blood clot. I've never had blood clots until I subjected my perfectly healthy body to the Covid vaccination. On the morning of April 30, 2021, I was suddenly overcome with a sense of disorientation and dizziness. Spouse drove me to the ER. They discovered I had experienced a stroke. Let me be absolutely clear. The Pfizer vaccine is the sole reason I developed blood clots and had a stroke. I was perfectly healthy until I got vaccinated. I now have brain fog, dizziness, and every day is a challenge. I feel so dumb for falling for the get vaccinated garbage.

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

Lot of blood was coming out while I was toweling my body out. I couldn't find out where the blood is coming from. I checked, it's not from my urine, not from my rectum but it was quite a lot of blood drawing out of my body. Immediately, I called my wife into bathroom, then I squeezed my body then the bleeding stops. It was on 24Dec2020. You know my kids were at home. I don't want them to find it. The bleeding stopped and everything went away. Then I thought maybe it is something related to my GI. I went to my GI doctor yesterday to have a checkup, they don't know anything either but I am due for my second dose for next week Wednesday. Now I had this news about thrombocytopenia on this doctor died (Clarification unknown). So I am just afraid if there is anything related this.

Within 1 minute of vaccine being injected. I started to feel dizzy. I was wheeled in wheelchair to observation area. I kept feeling more dizzy and started to feel tingly in my fingers and legs (both sides equally) After 15 minute observation time was over, I tried to stand up and immediately sat down again as a wave of dizziness hit me. Doctor in observation area saw me and came over. I told him how I felt. He put his fingers to my wrist and felt my pulse. It was initially between 40 and 90, then steadied off around 90-100. He called for EMTs on duty to come over with a stretcher because he thought I should be laid flat. The EMT took my blood pressure and it was 155/94. The doctor said at one point my pulse was thready. By this point the dizziness was stronger and I felt tingly in my teeth as well as other areas. I was asked about my breathing and I said that it was okay. An ambulance was called for and arrived. I don't remember the exact time. The moved me from the wheelchair to a stretcher. I could not stand up on my own and lurched toward the stretcher. I am grateful strong people were there to get me on stretcher and strapped in. All throughout this my normally barely noticeable Atrial Fibrillation was quite apparent and more erratic. This was a major reason for ambulance call. Some of the stroke protocol was done including gripping EMT's fingers equally and following his finger with my eyes. I was very cold throughout. I was brought to the waiting ambulance outside and driven to Medical Center. The EMT took an EKG which showed atrial fibrillation and a line was put into my arm. When we got to the hospital, I was brought into the triage area and had all my vitals taken. Blood pressure was high, so was pulse then for a half hour, I was very hot and sweated a lot after being cold.

The patient was hospitalized for the events from 17Apr2021 to 23Apr2021 and was treated with Coumadin. The outcome of the events was recovering.; Sender's Comments: Drug causality would seem unlikely for BNT162B2 vaccine since there is no plausible mechanism implicating the subject drug to the events. The reported events may be regarded as natural progression of patient's pre-existing conditions. The impact of this report on the benefit/risk profile of the Pfizer drug is evaluated as part of Pfizer procedures for safety evaluation, including the review and analysis of aggregate data for adverse events. Any safety concern identified as part of this review, as well as any appropriate action in response, will be promptly notified to Regulatory Authorities, Ethics Committees and Investigators, as appropriate.

The Dr gave me Solital 2x per day and as soon as he did that, within two days the AFIB went away. He took away my blood pressure medication and gave me the Solital. But I still get tired easier than I did before.

He had 3 different IV's going in each arm shooting different heart medications in him and the doctor explained that the medications didn't mix well, could not go in the same IV at the same time. The patient shared that this was the second worst feeling he has ever had since he had his first heart surgery. He meant they thought he was dead or dying he lost feeling of everything. His arm felt better, but every now and again felt like a little knot or something was in there. He was breathing better, they gave him inhalers, albuterol.

While this first vaccine gave no side effects other than a slightly sore arm, 17 days later on 4-17-2021 I suffered a TIA (Transcient Ischemic Attack). That occurred at 5:15 pm and I immediately took 4-81 mg aspirin and headed for a nearby Emergency Room. They said it was a stroke (and it did show on an MRI the next day but sub-centimeter and I was told the size of a pinhead. AT the ER the double vision in my left eye and numbness in left lips, gum and tongue were already subsiding, but the DR there gave me a Plavix and within 5 minutes I was completely back to normal (or close). I am not sure IF that first dose of vaccine had anytrhing to do with this TIA, but it might have? I had also stopped taking my 81mg aspirin several days before this TIA as I had a Periodontal appointment for insertion of an implant post and wanted to control the possible bleeding. The thoughts of my Doctor at Hospital as well as the Neurologists was that the omission of the aspirin PROBABLY was the main cause of the temporary clotting that caused this event HOWEVER I did not tell them that I was 17 days post-Covid Pfizer vax #1 and so the possibility remains that the vaccine could have been partially the cause of this event? As listed previously, Dr at Hospital was my Doctor and might shed some light on this and her thoughts. I felt it was important enough to report as I have heard stories of all of the vaccines possibly causing some clotting and this might fit.

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

Died 4 days after shot from blood clots in my lungs. No history of clotting before this. Did have Covid asyptomatic back in January. So not sure whether having had Covid caused the clotting. Having the vaccine or being out of work with torn meniscus. They think clots started in my legs and ended up in my lungs. I was brought back after coding for 6 minutes. They seem to think Covid caused it. Not sure if vaccine contributed or not. But it did happen 4 days after the shot.

MI, symptoms started 2 hours after immunization; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable physician. A 64-year-old male patient received the first dose of bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Solution for injection), intramuscularly, administered in the right arm on 14Apr2021 (Batch/Lot Number: EW0161) as a single dose for COVID-19 immunization. The vaccination facility type was reported. Relevant medical history included obstructive sleep apnea on CPAP; hypogonadism on bioTE; depression; history of (h/o) pneumonia; colon polyps; recurrent sinusitis; erectile dysfunction; MTHFR Mutation C677T Heterozygous; low high density lipoprotein (HDL); dyslipidemia; lumbar disc disease; and sciatica; all from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing. Concomitant medications included bupropion hydrochloride (WELLBUTRIN XL); anastrozole; celecoxib (CELEBREX); levothyroxine, liothyronine (NP THYROID); and escitalopram oxalate (LEXAPRO); all taken for an unspecified indication, start and stop date were not reported.

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

36 hours following injection of my second Pfizer COVID vaccine on 3/21/21, I suffered an afib episode lasting 15 hours starting in the early morning hours of 3/23/21. I then experienced another episode of afib lasting 19.5 hours on 4/10/21. On 4/16/21, I suffered my third afib episode following my second injection, which lasted three hours. As I was converting to a normal sinus rhythm on that day, I went into sudden cardiac arrest for 10-20 minutes and was transported to the local hospital emergency room via ambulance where I was held for approximately 24 hours for observation and testing. Since that sudden cardiac arrest event, I have experienced two more afib episodes to date, one on 4/26/21 lasting 8 hours and one on May 5, 2021 lasting 6.5 hours. While I have experienced afib in the past due to a virus attacking my heart in 2018, I had not had any afib episodes for 14 months and had built my ejection fraction back up to 60-65% over a three-year period. I have never experienced afib episodes with such frequency since my initial conversion to sinus rhythm three years ago following the virus attacking my heart until I received the second dose of the Pfizer COVID vaccine along with never, ever experiencing sudden cardiac arrest following the second dose of the Pfizer COVID vaccine.

Acute respiratory failure with hypoxia; Acute respiratory failure with hypoxia; Couldn't breathe; Pneumonia due to MRSA/Ground glass pneumonia; weak; lost 20 pounds; fever; Cough; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (the patient himself). A 64-year-old male patient received the second dose of BNT162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Lot number EN6208, Exp 30Jun2021) via an unspecified route of administration in arm left on 16Apr2021 11:00AM (at the age of 64-year-old) at single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Relevant medical history included heart disease ongoing from 1997 (this happened in 1997 and the patient had been living with it for a little while), heart attack, pacemaker defibrillator because of cardiac arrest (in 2011), atrial fibrillation (diagnosed a little while, he was not sure and had been in and out of the hospital and to heart doctor quite a bit) and hypertension. The patient was administered with first shot of BNT162b2 (Lot number EW0153) in left shoulder on 16Mar2021 11:00AM (at the age of 64-year-old). Concomitant medications were not reported. On 16Apr2021 after the second dose, the patient was fine. There were no reactions after the first dose, but the second dose two days after he started developing a cough and fever. He thought it was a side effect but then ended up in the ER with pneumonia. They gave him antibiotics and sent him home. He went through the antibiotics and went back because he was still sick and not responding. They gave him more antibiotics and sent him home. He went through that batch and ended up really bad so he had to call an ambulance a few weeks later. He was diagnosed with MRSA Pneumonia and stayed in the hospital for 5 days. Then, he was discharged. He went back to the ER again a few days later because he did not seem to be improving. He was coughing and was weak. He was given another batch of antibiotics. He did not know if it was from the shot or what - he was healthy until then. The patient added that she lost 20 pounds and confirmed that it was following the vaccine. Two days after the vaccine, maybe it was 19Apr2021, he had a fever and it was now gone (exact dates were unknown). Cough happened at the same time of the fever but it was not as bad, and then progressively got worse. His lungs started filling up. They thought it was COVID. by the x-rays it looked like COVID lung but they took a sample and it was MRSA (exact dates were unknown). His admission was 18May2021 and was for acute respiratory failure with hypoxia. Discharge paperwork said acute chronic combined systolic diastolic congestive heart failure but he has had that for many years. It also stated primary hypertension but he has had that. The paperwork sayid pneumonia due to MRSA and pneumonia due to unspecified organism. He was hospitalized 18May2021 through 23May2021 with pneumonia and the reason he was hospitalized was because he could not breathe. Lost 20 pounds: after he started getting sick from the beginning of it all, he was coughing and losing weight and all that. It may not be quite 20 pounds, maybe 17, but he just knew that he was down quite a bit. He was 160s now, he was high 170s before (as reported). Treatment included Lasix and all kinds of different antibiotics. They were giving him, he did not know what it was, at first. Then, they narrowed it down and once they found out it was MRSA they gave him Clindamycin he believes. Investigations: they did CT scans, chest X-rays, and labs but he does not know any information. Each time they did a chest x-ray, when he went to get a chest x-ray, each one was worse all the way up to when he was admitted. When he went, they did a bronchial scope or whatever, he was not sure, and they saw lots of swelling and infiltrate. He did not know what this meant, stuff was infiltrating into the tissue and it was not just in the airways. He added it looked like ground glass pneumonia is what they said. The patient added that he was usually pretty active and cannot do anything anymore. He had three or four Covid tests, all negative, no additional details provided. Outcome of the events was unknown. Follow-up attempts are needed. Further information is expected.

Add then he had various medical care to keep him alive those two days. The doctor confirmed that he had myocarditis from a virus. He was still on mediation for his heart. The patient also mentioned his memory comes and goes now. Mentions the beta blocker his is prescribed is Metoprolol 25mg.

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

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

Patient was recently hospitalized for pulmonary embolism with acute cor pulmonale. First noticed increased shortness of breath on 4/4/21 when shoveling mulch and describes feeling "more winded than usual" with physical activity. He presented to the outpatient primary care clinic on 4/6/21 for evaluation and serum labs and TTE were ordered. Labs were notable for a WBC 13.22 and Cr 0.76. TTE showed hyperdynamic LV function with EF >65% and no tricuspid regurgitation with no concern for right heart strain. A follow-up d-dimer was ordered and returned at 1661 resulting in the recommendation to present to the ED. Upon presentation to the ED, he was hemodynamically stable with an SpO2 of 97% on room air. CT Chest PE protocol was ordered and showed multiple bilateral lobar, segmental, and subsegmental PE with findings suggestive of right heart enlargement was well as areas of pulmonary hemorrhage and developing infarcts. He was given a heparin bolus and he was admitted to the Adult Hospitalist Service. The following morning, patient's hemoglobin remained stable and he continued to feel clinically well. He was transitioned from the heparin infusion to subcutaneous enoxaparin. He was discharged on 4/9/21 with a plan for self-injection of enoxaparin and close follow-up with his PCP.

I have had Paroxysmal AFib since 2012 and had an ablation in 2016. It cured the Afib about 90-95 percent, but I still get intermittent episodes, ALWAYS brought on by some catalyst, (alcohol, sexual relations, drinking a cold beverage, exercise). However, appr. two weeks after the vaccine, I began getting random bouts of Afib, longer in episodes, but shorter in duration. Since the vaccine, I have had appr. 12+ episodes of Afib, occurring at various times, even at rest. Since the ablation, I got about 12 episodes per year, now it's been 12 episodes in 2 months. Sometimes, I'll get several episodes a day, at random times for no reason. This has been totally opposite of what I was experiencing pre-vaccine. What concerns me is that the episodes are random and there are not catalysts to bring them on.

Stroke; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer. A 65-year-old male patient received the second dose of bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, solution for injection), via an unspecified route of administration on 22Mar2021 09:00 (Batch/Lot Number: EN6207) as single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included ongoing high blood pressure, bleeding ulcer and helicobacter pylori infection both from 15Feb2021, and ongoing tumor on his heart. Concomitant medication included lisinopril taken for high blood pressure. The patient previously took the first dose of bnt162b2 in the left arm on 26Feb2021 (lot number: EN6203) for COVID-19 immunisation. Right before he had his first shot, he was in the hospital on 15Feb2021 with a bleeding ulcer and a helicobacter pylori infection. He had been in the hospital and isn't sure what all they gave him then. The patient started lisinopril 4 or 5 years ago when he was diagnosed with high blood pressure. His blood pressure was under control with the lisinopril but the patient is no longer on it. The patient's father had a stroke when he was 42 but he had high blood pressure and didn't get it treated. The patient got up around 07:00 in the morning on 27Mar2021. The patient's wife got up at 08:30 when she realized something was wrong. The patient said when he got up around 07:00, he experienced his right side being numb. The patient went to the emergency room and was treated there. He had a stroke. The patient was hospitalized from 27Mar2021 to 30Mar2021. The patient's wife doesn't know if it has anything to do with the shot. After his stroke, they put him on "carvilo". When the patient was in the hospital for the stroke, they found other issues. He has a tumor in his heart that's a pretty good size and the doctor said it had been there for awhile. So, they put her husband on "carvilo" to help with his blood pressure and his heart. She doesn't think the tumor had anything to do with the shot because the doctor did say the size of the tumor was as big as it was because it had been there a while. They found the tumor while trying to find out why he had the stroke. They still haven't found a reason as to why he had the stroke. The tumor is on the right side of his heart and they said they didn't think that had anything to do with the stroke. The tumor was found on 28Mar2021. They did an MRI and a CT scan on his head when he was in the emergency room (ER) on 27Mar2021. They also did an ultrasound on his heart, chest, and abdomen. Since he's been out, they did an MRI on his heart. They also did X-rays on his lungs. He is getting ready to go back to the hospital for open heart surgery on 07May2021. Outcome of the event was unknown.

Cerebral venous thrombosis; bilateral intracerebral hemorrhage in the left, greater than the right; tonic-clonic seizure; brain swelling/cerebral edema; headaches; overall imbalance/having balance problems; he had a decline; kind of getting worse/ had the worst symptoms; His prostate is enlarged; patient's mental status is altered; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable physician. A 65-year-old male patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), dose 2 via an unspecified route of administration on 25Feb2021 (Batch/Lot Number: EN6203) as 0.3 ml single for COVID-19 immunisation. Patient age at vaccination was 65 years old. Medical history included hyperlipidemia and high cholesterol. Historical vaccine included 1st dose of BNT162B2 (LOT: EL3247) on 03Feb2021 for COVID-19 immunisation. Concomitant medication included pravastatin (strength: 10 mg) taken for an unspecified indication from an unspecified start date and ongoing. Reporter did not know all of the symptoms that the patient had and cannot get the history, because the patient's mental status was altered (from unknown date in 2021). It was reported that he was having symptoms for at least 2 weeks with some increasing over the last 2 weeks. Knew that he had an overall imbalance and was having headaches, both from unknown date in May2021. He had been having symptoms for weeks and went to his doctor as an outpatient. He had initial imaging that was concerning and he went to the hospital because he had a decline (from unknown date in 2021). He had declined and had a hemorrhagic hemorrhage with cerebral venous thrombosis, both from 04Jun2021. He was admitted to the hospital 04Jun2021, and 05Jun2021 he was transferred to the ICU. He had declined since his initial presentation and had been kind of getting worse over the last couple of weeks. Stated the patient was stoic and does not have a lot of medical problems, but everyone knew he was having symptoms over the last 2 weeks. 02Jun2021 he had the worst symptoms and was basically having balance problems. He was getting concerned and had called to get an appointment with his primary care physician. They had done an outpatient CT scan which found the cerebral venous thrombosis and he went to the hospital and was placed on Heparin. While in the hospital, he had a generalized tonic-clonic seizure and had further decline on 04Jun2021. Repeat imaging showed that he had bilateral intracerebral hemorrhaging, the left greater than the right, and they had expanded a bit. He was still on heparin and now (Jun2021) had some cerebral edema due to it but was not on a ventilator. He was still in the time period where he was continuing to have small declines. He was therapeutic on heparin. He had a central line and was getting hypertonic saline for the brain swelling and cerebral edema. Patient previous health condition was reported as he did not have a real significant past medical history. He maybe carried a diagnosis of hyperlipidemia and high cholesterol. He was pretty healthy; regularly went to the doctor and was otherwise pretty stable. Reporter did not even think his LDL was that high. He had never been on any blood thinners or anything like that. They did a full scan to look for cancer and had no history of blood clots. They did a scan that was negative for any types of masses or any concerns for cancer. His prostate was enlarged (from unknown date in 2021) and they had spoken to the family about it and they said he had been worked up with a biopsy which had been negative. Physician Office? Yes, He was directly admitted to the hospital from primary care. He presented to the clinic because he had these symptoms and headaches. The imaging was done and then he was admitted. He never went through the emergency room. Cerebral venous thrombosis, bilateral intracerebral hemorrhage, overall imbalance/having balance problems, he had a decline, headaches resulted in Physician Office Visit. Outcome of cerebral venous thrombosis, bilateral intracerebral hemorrhage was not resolved; outcome of tonic-clonic seizure, brain swelling/cerebral edema, headache, overall imbalance/having balance problems, he had a decline, kind of getting worse/ had the worst symptoms, enlarged prostate and mental status was altered was unknown. Causality: Cerebral venous thrombosis: Can't say for sure because reporter does not know the timeline but can't find any other reason, he would have cerebral venous thrombosis.; Sender's Comments: Based on the temporal relationship, the association between the events cerebral venous thrombosis, intracerebral hemorrhage, tonic-clonic seizure, and brain swelling with BNT162b2 can not be fully excluded. The impact of this report on the benefit/risk profile of the Pfizer product is evaluated as part of Pfizer procedures for safety evaluation, including the review and analysis of aggregate data for adverse events. Any safety concern identified as part of this review, as well as any appropriate action in response, will be promptly notified to regulatory authorities, Ethics Committees, and Investigators, as appropriate.

I went to the doctor the following week on 04/13/2021 and he checked me over and could not find anything. He heard some crackling in the lower part of my lungs, which he found interesting but he could not find out why I was having that pain. I left there. Before getting home he called me and said that it could be a sign of a blood clot. He had me get a CT scan, I got it in 06/14/2021. They found that I had 1 blood clot on each lung. The biggest one on the right one. They gave me blood thinners. I had fluids on my lungs. They were not able to take it all out so I might have to have surgery. The blood clots have resolved themselves with the medication.

A 66-years-old male patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE, Formulation: Solution for Injection, Batch/Lot number: EW0169) via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm on 14Apr2021 around 15:00 to 15:30 as dose 1, single for covid-19 immunisation. The patient's medical history included atrial fibrillation, patient was diagnosed years ago, before his stroke in 2015, a long time ago, cardiac failure congestive, aortic valve disease, cerebrovascular accident, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, last year patient had a blood infection, so he had to take four antibiotics. The patient's concomitant medications included rivaroxaban (XARELTO) taken for atrial fibrillation. It was reported that patient received the first dose of the vaccine in mid-April and got sick 2 days later(18Apr2021). Patient had a fever of 104. Caller took him to the doctor and patient was diagnosed sepsis. Patient was in the hospital and was then tested for and diagnosed with Endocarditis due to the sepsis. Patient was currently in a rehab facility and was weak. The rehab facility wanted to give patient the second dose of the covid vaccine. But the rehab facility was not sure if they will get the Pfizer covid vaccine. Reporter was worried about patient getting a second dose of anything. This was not the first-time patient has had endocarditis. Patient has been diagnosed with it before. Patient has a history of congestive heart failure, a bad aortic value, past stroke, and diabetes. They do not know if patient still had endocarditis, but patient has completed the antibiotics. They are unable to test patient again for endocarditis because he is in such bad shape. Patient had one side that was weak, and then he fell and broke his hip. Patient was not a candidate for open heart surgery because of his enlarged heart. Before patient received the first dose of the covid vaccine, patient was sleeping all the time and reporter thought it was due to the sepsis. The doctor told reporter that the sepsis was there before patient got the first dose of the covid vaccine. Patient has A-Fib and takes Eliquis. It was reported that patient had a stroke while he was in the hospital. Patient fell because of the weakness from his stroke. The second fall put him back in the hospital. Patient was in poor shape; his blood sugar was in the 600s. Before patient went to the hospital, he was sleeping all of the time, and he lost his appetite. They did not know if patient still has endocarditis because he could not have the follow up procedure done because he was in bad shape. Patient had weakness and fell and broke his hip. Patient was currently in rehab for physical therapy. Reporter clarifies that she took patient to the emergency room, and then he was admitted to the hospital. Patient's fever did not start out at 100 degrees, it gradually went up to 104 degrees. By the second or third day, patient's fever got up to 104 degrees. Reporter is back to square one for help. Reporter is asking if there is anyone who would know what to do. Patient's cardiologist said for patient to get the second dose of the covid vaccine. Reporter knows that no one had that in the clinical trial. Before the covid vaccine, patient was having a crown done in his mouth. Last year patient had a blood infection, so he had to take four antibiotics. Reporter thinks they were called amoxicillin, and they were 500mg each. Patient had to take them all at once as a preventive. Patient is on a lot of things, that reporter does not even know. Patient has had a lot of things done to his heart. Patient has had to have ablations. Patient has a very bad heart. Patient has a question about herself. She had the covid vaccine and had no reactions. She is on Celebrex 200mg. Reporter stopped taking a day and a half before the covid vaccine. Reporter is asking if she could have messed herself up by taking an anti-inflammatory, and if taking Celebrex could have prevented her from getting the full effect. Prior to taking Covid vaccine her husband has had Endocarditis, congestive heart failure, bad heart valve and a stroke. 1st dose of vaccine mid-April. 2 days later had a fever of 104 and was admitted to the hospital with sepsis. The sepsis caused endocarditis again. Husband is in rehab facility, and they want him to take a second dose. Should he be getting 2nd dose of Pfizer or a different Covid vaccine. Wife wondering if husband should get 2nd dose at all. Reporter does not think that this has anything to do with the covid vaccine, since they know which bacteria caused it. Reporter thinks that maybe patient getting the first dose of the covid vaccine put patient over the edge. This is the second time that patient has had vegetation, the first time was last year. Reporter thinks that all of patient's doctors are panicking over the covid vaccine. Reporter knows that patient is in bad shape. In the clinical trial, there was nothing in there about congestive heart failure, or nothing about endocarditis. Patient may still have endocarditis. Reporter does not know what will happen to patient if he gets the second dose of the covid vaccine. Reporter states that unfortunately patient does not go to the best cardiologist. Reporter thinks that patient is so bad off, that he could be on palliative care. The only reason reporter waited so long to call Pfizer is because patient is in rehab now, and they might be getting in the Pfizer covid vaccine. They asked reporter if she wanted patient to get the second dose of the Pfizer covid vaccine. They should get them in on 16Jul2021. Reporter said yes, about a week ago, but it has been on her mind to call and ask the source. Reporter took patient to the hospital, and the doctors diagnosed him with sepsis: Patient was not willing to go to the hospital at first. Patient could not get out of bed. Patient was not eating or drinking. Reporter was trying to give him stuff. Reporter is not a scientist. An infectious disease doctor told reporter that patient already had sepsis before the covid vaccine. Patient was in terrible shape. Patient had a stroke while he was in the hospital. They figured out he had a stroke about five days after being in the hospital. After the stroke, patient had two weeks of physical therapy there. Dates of Hospitalization: He was in the hospital for a few weeks. Patient was home for two days he fell because of the weakness from his stroke. The second fall put him back in the hospital. Patient had to get a partial hip replacement. For about a week now, patient has been in rehab. Patient has A-Fib, since the stroke, he is not on Eliquis. Patient was not on Eliquis before. Patient also has hypertension, but it is under control. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of endocarditis and fell and broke his hip. The outcome of the events was unknown.

He felt slightly unwell after the first dose of vaccine but recovered after a day or two On evening of 2nd dose, he developed severe chest pain, shortness of breath, and generalized malaise, without fever or cough. He requested to see me after 5 days of symptoms getting worse such that he felt short of breath doing very little, like walking just up a few steps, or talking, I saw him on 7/19. his physical exam was grossly normal, although he reported presence of pressure on the chest and shortness of breath with walking and talking. After blood test finding elevated BNP, I tried to get him to schedule an echo, and sent Rx for diuretic. But he got too short of breath at home and called 911. When the ambulance arrived, he was not to the hospital I was affiliated with, but another hospital nearer to his home, so I have no direct assess to his record, but at the time of discharge 4 days later, I spoke to his discharging hospitalist to obtain the full medical course, in addition to his own account.

he was in AFIB for about 3 hours after receiving his first dose of the COVID19 Vaccine; he noticed the rest of the day, right up to going to bed that he felt cold; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer. A 66-year-old male patient received first dose of bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Lot Number: EL1284) at arm, left upper, via an unspecified route of administration on 29Dec2020 06:15 at single dose for covid-19 immunisation. Medical history included atrial fibrillation (Afib) formally diagnosed around Jan2020. There were no concomitant medications. The patient reported he got the COVID-19 Vaccine at 06:15 on 29Dec2020 and had to sit for 15 minutes afterwards before he could leave. He said everything was fine, and he walked out to the hospital lobby, and was speaking with a work associate for 10 minutes before he headed to his car. When he got ready to leave, he got in his car, and started his car. He started driving home, and realized he was in AFIB. He did have an AFIB issue. His AFIB has been pretty well controlled for a year now, as long as, he didn't do something stupid. He had a moderately aggressive run of AFIB. He said his "smart" watch told him his heart rate was 117. His normal heart rate is around 60-70. He was in AFIB for about 3 hours. His typical runs of AFIB are considerably shorter. He only had a total of 2 episodes of AFIB in the last year. His prior AFIB episodes would have been about 4-5 minutes. The last time he had AFIB that lasted any length of time was when he was hospitalized for AFIB around Jan2020. He said at that time, he was hospitalized overnight for observation. He received medication during the hospitalization and his AFIB broke. He didn't remember what medications were given to him during the hospitalization. He said he had flutters before that hospitalization, but the flutters were always gone after a few minutes, so he never sought treatment because there would be nothing to treat. The patient reported he noticed the rest of the day on 29Dec2020, right up to going to bed that he felt cold. His house wasn't cold, and he didn't have a fever. He said the cold feeling went away during the night while he was sleeping. He said the cold feeling easily lasted for a 12 hours. He said the cold feeling could have been something else. The outcome of "he was in afib for about 3 hours after receiving his first dose of the covid19 vaccine" was recovered on 29Dec2020; of "he noticed the rest of the day, right up to going to bed that he felt cold" was recovered on 30Dec2020.

on 2/1/21 at ~7AM pt was noted by the RN to have rt sided weakness & was sent to Hospital ED for evaluation.

Pfizer vaccine injected 3:00 PM 3/10/21.

Wife witnessed evolution and drove directly to Hospital ER/stroke center by which time patient was vomiting and required wheelchair to enter ER. Stroke team evaluation neurologist concluded ischemic stroke and administered TPA. During TPA infusion, all symptoms resolved remarkably so that dysarthria cleared, numbness resolved and dysmetria/fine motor incoordination/right hand/arm/leg/foot symptoms were markedly improved. Patient admitted to ICU for one day and then neurocare floor for one day. MRI showed 8 mm linear diffusion weighted lesion in right centrum semiovale which was deemed c/w acute/subacute infarct. Attending neurologist in ICU and neurofloor noted that location laterality of MRI lesion did not correlate well with the right-sided patient symptoms, but could not identify other left brain lesions on review of scans. EKG, TEE and echo studies showed no cardiac lesions. Carotid studies were negative. CT and CT angio were uninformative; no hemorrhagic lesions or large vessel blockage. At discharge on 3/14/2021 around 6 PM, patient could walk, talk, and use hands essentially normally to outside observer although patient could relate intermittent brief episodes of possible numbness in lips or hands/fingers or slight heaviness of foot which is slight and decreasing. Patient discharged on atorvastatin, amlodipine, fluticasone, Loratadine, 81 mg aspirin, Ibuprofen (for headaches) for further post-stroke follow-up.

Clinical course: Consumer stated, "Well, I got my first Pfizer shot I just thought I should just call and discuss this with somebody bit of some sheet I got I got the Pfizer vaccine and I got that one on 15Mar2021 the first one and then I received the second one 02Apr2021 and when after I received the second one I had the pain in the arm like normal but it was a lot more severe than I got from the first one but it went away but you know normal 3 to 4 days it went away so I did not wasn't that concerned but I also know this to ask. After I got my skin was kind of different looking you know like aging a little bit you know like wrinkling but then all of a sudden it cleared up too that went away probably about the same time a week after I got the shot I started having vision problem(distorted voice and incomplete sentence). I visited an ophthalmologist an regular eye doctor it was an ophthalmologist (distorted voice and incomplete sentence) and he said no I don't see that you have a stroke I don't see that you have vision problems with your retina this time you probably got macular degeneration going on so anyways he said comeback if you have an issue then I said so you are telling me that even though my vision is going in my left eye I am not gonna go blind and I didn't have a stroke he said yes. Ok, so anyways exactly a month after that I went totally blind in my left eye my vision came back, my vision came back. I forgot to tell you my vision came back fully for a while but it was different in my left eye like I was seeing flash burn every once in a while when I was in the sunlight and stuff. Anyway a month later after I got the second shot when I went totally blind in my left eye and so I got upset about the doctor's here and I had to go to (Address) to pick my new eyeglasses anyway so I had to drive to (Address) with one eye which is 230 miles from me anyways, so when I got my glasses there at they were the right prescription thank god and I told them about the eye issue so they didn't throw a eye test really thorough and said yes I definitely see a problem in your left eye looks like a flash burn or something like that so then they had me setup an appointment with really good ophthalmologist in (Address) because I wanted a second opinion whether my insurance covered it or not. So I went to this retinal specialist and I was in his office for like 3 hours they were checking me out in there you know he said yes definitely you have an obstruction in the main artery of your left eye and that's why you lost your vision and this doctor said there's only two things it could be it it could be you had a stroke or that you had a bad reaction to the Pfizer vaccine and so anyway he wanted me to go either into the emergency room a good (Address) to further do testing, I said no I don't wanna do that because that's all out of my own pocket that would have been thousands of dollars you know, but I don't know I am all confused about this medical care. I am just trying to give you all a scenario from day 1 going forward you know anyway so I refused to go to good (Name) and he said well it should be okay anyway because it's been so much time since the original problem that you would be probably alright to just back to your hometown there and go to the hospital and have your testing then there I did and the next day I got back to (Address) from (Address) I went to the hospital there they did an EKG on my heart and they did a CAT scan on my head and they said they couldn't see anything from the EKG or the CAT scan that I had but that doesn't mean you didn't have(Incomplete sentence), so they said you could have a mild stroke and you know anyway we want you to go further testing well I had a primary care physician appointment two weeks later which is still coming up so I have to her so they want to order an MRI and some other tests on my heart because they think I have might have an AFib atrial fibrillation where the blockage I mean where the blood flow properly to my heart you know if I want to do those tests too but I am just letting you know this cause the one doctor said it could be that you have the eye problem because of the vaccine that's what I am calling you about." Consumer Stated, "Yes, you can follow up sure because I am more anyway cause on the 09June2021 I have an appointment with my primary care physician which is the one that have to do the order in heart chest and the MRI and the following week. I am going back to (Address) to that Ophthalmologist that said that it might because of Pfizer vaccine I am going back to him I got a follow up with him because he wants to me to take care of my eye issue so maybe I can get my eye sight back in other words or so." Date adverse event started: Consumer stated, "I had my first shot on Friday 02Apr2021. The exact day that I started having issues was exactly one week later on 09Apr2021. Other than the normal you now pain in the arms because that started and went away normal that started you know. Well that started basically right after I got the shot on 02Apr2021 with the pain and the arm thing that was right after I got the shot 02Apr2021 and it was the little bit more severe than the original shot. 09Apr2021 is when I stated having eye problem."

I had hiatal hernia repair done, so surgery. I have hypertension disorder they say, left ventricular hypertrophy which I guess has something to do with the heart, I think that's why they wanna do more test of my heart. I got polyps in colon (Further not clarified) and occasionally I get Vertigo so I have to have a colonoscopy quite often in another words to remove the polyps from my colon." Treatment medication for medical conditions: Consumer Stated, "Well they only I take Vitamin D3 and I take Vitamin C but that's vitamins basically the only meds and I am taking. I am using Eye Drops right now over the counter stuff basically the only meds I really take is Omeprazole which is for my GRD disorder you know my gas my stomach gas it controls my stomach gas and then extra strength Tylenol I take that as needed sometimes." Start date of taking the medication: Consumer Stated, "Well the Omeprazole I probably been taking that for 10 years at least 8 years or 7 years. I really couldn't give that to you without going through a pile of paper work." When asked about if consumer is taking any other medication, consumer Stated, "No, Just Omeprazole."
