The patient experienced respiratory arrest / cardiac arrest on 06May2021, at 11:45, and vomiting on 06May2021. The reporting physician classified the events as serious as they resulted in death. It was unknown whether the patient received any vaccination within 4 weeks prior to BNT162B2. It was unknown whether the patient received any other medications within 2 weeks of vaccination. Prior to vaccination, it was unknown whether the patient was diagnosed with COVID-19. Since the vaccination, the patient has not been tested for COVID-19.

On 06May2021 (about 1 hour after the vaccination), the patient experienced vomiting.
