Write-up: Almost immediately after patient sat down in observation chair after vaccine administration, he stated he was feeling extremely dizzy and light-headed. He also became extremely sweaty and cold/clammy to the touch. Took his blood pressure and it was 80/56 mmHg. HR was 49 bpm. Grabbed him some cool cloths to apply to his face/head/neck. He stated he was extremely anxious about the vaccine as he has an extremely phobia of needles & thought this may have contributed to the event, but was not sure. After a few minutes, he began to feel better. He stopped sweating, skin warmed up and he was no longer dizzy or light headed. By the time his 15 minutes were up, he was back to normal again.
