A 48-year-old non-pregnant female patient received the second dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 MRNA VACCINE; Lot: EW0172), via an unspecified route of administration in the left arm on 29Apr2021 at 09:00 (at the age of 48-years-old) as a single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), chronic constipation, silent reflux, allergies to several antibiotics and sulfa. Prior to vaccination, the patient was not diagnosed with COVID-19. Concomitant medications included ethinylestradiol/ferrous fumarate/norethisterone acetate (LO LOESTRIN), omeprazole, magnesium citrate. The patient previously took doxycycline, clarithromycin (MACROBID), and erythromycin and experienced allergies to all. The patient previously received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 MRNA VACCINE) on 07Apr2021 (at the age of 48-years-old) for COVID-19 immunisation and experienced pain (like nerve pain) on the interior side of the upper arm that went from the elbow up to almost the underarm area about 10 days after the first shot (there was nothing visible, just pain). The patient did not receive any other vaccines within 4 weeks of the vaccination. At the time of the second vaccination, the patient still had ongoing pain (like nerve pain) on the interior side of the upper arm that went from the elbow up to almost the underarm area, which she experienced 10 days after the first vaccination on 17Apr2021. On 02May2021, after the second vaccination, the pain seemed to spread to the inner elbow area, and it was intense pain. The skin became red and swollen and in that one location. The patient visited the doctor on 03May2021, and he was not sure if it was cellulitis or another type of infection, and prescribed antibiotics, cefdinir. Since the vaccination, the patient had not been tested for COVID-19. The clinical outcome of cellulitis, infection, "pain seemed to spread to my inner elbow area / It was intense pain", skin became red and swollen was not resolved.
