Write-up: She lost the sense of taste this morning; This is a spontaneous report received from a contactable consumer (Patient mother) via medical information team. A 17-year-old female patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, solution for injection, Batch/Lot number was not reported), dose 2 via an unspecified route of administration on an unspecified date in Jun2021 as single dose for covid-19 immunisation. The patient''s medical history and concomitant medications were not reported. The patient previously took first dose of BNT162B2 (solution for injection, Batch/Lot number was not reported), dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration on an unspecified date as single dose for covid-19 immunisation. No adverse events reported with the first dose. On 04Jun2021, the patient had lost the sense of taste. The consumer stated that "My adult daughter received the second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine two days ago. She lost the sense of taste this morning. I have seen people reported a loss of taste but along with a metallic taste in the mouth. But my daughter doesn''t have a metallic taste in her mouth". The reporter has been reading some of the questions and articles and none of them talk about a loss of a sense of taste. They talk about a metallic taste, but her daughter doesn''t have a metallic taste. The reporter wanted to know that if loss of a sense of taste was common after the Covid vaccine and if this was a side effect reported. Information on lot/batch number has been requested.
