Write-up: runny nose; migraine headache; Slight headache; Muscles hurt; Little bit of chills; UTI; cough; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer reporting for herself. A 58-years-old female patient received second dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE; Solution for injection; Lot Number: EW0164; Expiration date was not reported), via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm Left on 14Jun2021 11:00 (at the age of 58-years-old) as single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history and concomitant medications were reported as none. The patient did not have prior Vaccinations (within 4 weeks). Family Medical History included cancer, high blood pressure, heart attack, kidney cancer, breast cancer. The patient previously took first dose BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE; Solution for injection; Lot Number: EW0186) in left arm on 24May2021 13:00. The patient experienced cough on Jun2021, runny nose on an unspecified date, UTI (urinary tract infection) on 16Jun2021, slight headache on 17Jun2021, muscles hurt on 17Jun2021, little bit of chills on 17Jun2021, migraine headache on an unspecified date. Caller wanted to know if the adverse events that she is experiencing are included among the commonly reported adverse events from getting the Pfizer Biontech covid-19 vaccine. She was mostly concerned about the cough and runny nose. In response, patient was given overall safety summary that in clinical studies, adverse reactions in participants 16 years of age and older included fatigue (62.9%), and chills (31.9%). No specific information for coughs and runny nose being a effect, patient was referred to HCP. Caller stated that she was unsure if the cough and runny nose that she was experiencing were the signs of covid-19 or an AE of the Pfizer BioNTech Covid-19. The vaccine was at 95% efficacy 7 days after the 2nd dose of the Pfizer Biontech covid-19 vaccine. It may not protect everyone from covid-19. Patient was requested to speak to her doctor/hcp for some guidance as the cough/runny nose she was experiencing may require extensive evaluation to assess if it was an AE of the vaccine or a symptom of covid-19. Upon follow-up on 21Jun2021, patient reported additional events she experienced which included UTI, slight headache, muscles hurt, little bit of chills. Reason for the patient taking Covid Vaccine was that she was hearing a lot of announcements that Covid has been reported as decreasing. Patient had the second shot of the Covid vaccine on 14Jun2021. Her doctor prescribed her medication two days later for a UTI. She was just calling about this cough too and asked if that is normal after the Covid vaccine. She had a cough off and on and sometimes gets sniffles. She was going back to work the day later this report. She asked if that was okay since she had the shot last week. The medication the doctor gave her for the UTI was Nitrofurantoin and the next day to this report was her last day on it. She was taking 1 tablet twice a day. The cough started Saturday and it was off and on. She called Doctor''s office, then she guessed her assistant called back and said she should call Pfizer and where she went to get the vaccine. She should ask them if it was normal to cough this way after the vaccine. Cough started the past Saturday or Sunday, 19Jun2021 or 20Jun2021. Thursday, she had a slight headache, her muscles hurt, and a little bit of chills. She slept all day. She still had a slight headache, but she was thinking that was because of the UTI medicine which can cause some headaches. She was trying not to take Tylenol or anything because she didn''t want to kill the vaccine in her. It was not like a migraine headache, and she only feel it when she was sleeping. The muscle pain and chills went away on Friday, and she had recovered completely from both. She found out she had a UTI when she had her wellness visit and they gave her blood test results. She found out on Wednesday 16Jun2021. She didn''t have any symptoms, they just found it during her annual visit. Everything as far as her other results were normal. That was the only thing they found. She was hearing a lot of announcements that Covid has been reported as decreasing and how it is safe to go back to work and those who are vaccinated can have no mask. It was reported that history included that the only medicine she was taking is the one for her UTI. She wanted to call because her boss said it was worse, she would have to call her primary physician, and he said to call administration site. When she had her lab results from her annual wellness visit, they found the UTI, she had no symptoms. Event onset time (24-hour clock) for slight headache, muscles hurt, chills was reported as 1500 or 1600 and for cough was towards the evening. AE(s) did not require a visit to emergency room or physician office. Patient was not hospitalized. Relevant tests included none. Clinical outcome of the events muscles hurt, little bit of chills recovered on 18Jun2021, events of cough, slight headache were not recovered and for the other events was unknown.
