Write-up: Received vaccine in clinic room. Eight minutes after receiving COVID-PFE vaccine, patient complained he was ready to go and felt drowsy. The temperature did seem warm in the clinic room, so I escorted them 30 feet to the lobby. As the patient passed through the door to the lobby, his gait, he seemed to lose his ability to remain upright and started to collapse. I was able to catch him prior to hitting the floor. He never lost consciousness, but we moved him into a clinic room to evaluate and further monitor him. His blood pressure was a little low initially at 110/50, but came up to 112/60 (closer to his normal) after five to ten minutes. His pulse was strong and regular. We gave him a cool, wet compress to the forehead, cool water to drink, and chocolate candy. He was able to answer questions appropriately. We monitored him for another 30 minutes before releasing him. His mother was present with him and is a nurse practitioner. I called the Mom on 6/22/21 (the day after the event). She (Mom) reports the patient went home, laid down for about 45 minutes, then played video games. I recommend she considers getting the second dose at either Hospital, so that a higher level of care is available if needed.
