Write-up: Patient (a primary care patient) called our center c/o body aches, soreness, headaches x 5 days after receiving second Pfizer vaccine on 6/21 (from a provider in the community) . Patient also reported constant chest tightness that started yesterday. Per patient, chest tightness feels similar to when he had bronchitis as a child. Pain is tolerable and does not radiate anywhere else, patient stated it is located at the sternum. Denies difficulty breathing. Patient does not sound in distress. Patient denies fever, swelling of face, rash. Patient reported he has not taken any OTC medication to relieve his symptoms. I consulted with MD, was concerned of his chest pain and the possibility of myocarditis from the vaccine. Patient was highly recommended to seek ER ASAP due to his constant chest pain for more than 24 hours. Patient verbally agrees to go to hospital now. I encouraged him for me to call EMS but patient stated he is well enough to have someone drive him and will call a service.
