Write-up: After receiving the Moderna vaccine, the patient was sitting in a chair in the pharmacy waiting area. About 5 minutes afterwards, he fell out of his chair. Upon asking the patient if he was okay and what happened, he reported he felt dizzy with racing thoughts on his mind. Then he lost his balance, slipped out of his chair, and fell to the floor. He stated he has dizziness after every vaccine he has received in the past. He sat back in the chair and rested, and also reported he felt better. The supervisor on duty provided the patient with water. About 15 minutes after falling, the patient stated he felt fine and wanted to leave. He was stable upon standing up from the chair. I informed him if he experiences any other symptoms, that he should call my pharmacy, or if he experiences anaphylaxis, he should call 911 and seek immediate medical attention.
