Write-up: 40 minutes after receiving shot, patient was home and felt swelling of the tongue, slight difficulty breathing. She called 911, EMS did full evaluation on her (vitals included) and said maybe she was just having an anxiety attack. EMS instructed her to take Benadryl. Patient did not want to. Patient called pharmacy and explained symptoms to me, the pharmacist who administered the shot. I told her it sounds like it was related to the vaccine and that I would report her reaction to VAERS. I told her it might be a good idea to take Benadryl.
