Write-up: this condition causes him to have erections that last for long periods of time/preexisting condition has seemed to flare since having the dose; Low Flow Priapism/this condition causes him to have erections that last for long periods of time/preexisting condition has seemed to flare since having the dose; Low Flow Priapism; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient, self-reported). A male patient of an unspecified age received second dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTEC COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE, Solution for injection, lot number and expiry date were not reported), via an unspecified route of administration, on 11Jun2021, as a single dose for COVID-19 immunization. The patient''s medical history included low flow priapism (I have a pre-existing condition called Low Flow Priapism). Concomitant medications were not reported. Historical vaccine included first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTEC COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE, Solution for injection, lot number: EW0183 and expiry date was not reported), via an unspecified route of administration, on an unspecified date, as a single dose for COVID-19 immunization and no events reported. The patient reported that he received the 2nd dose of the Pfizer COVID19 vaccination on 11Jun2021. Since having the 2nd dose his "pre-existing condition has seemed to flare since having the dose." The patient reported having been previously diagnosed with "Low Flow Priapism." He states that on an unspecified date in Jun2021, this condition causes him to have erections that last for long periods of time, "generally speaking they can go anywhere to a day and sometimes become medical emergencies." Since having the 2nd dose of the vaccine, he stated that he has been having these concerns "quite often" which has not been the case in "some time." The patient advised after review of the prescribing information for Pfizer COVID19 vaccine he did not find information regarding prolonged erections or any data related to his diagnosis of Low Flow Priapism. Encouraged the patient to follow up with HCP to aid in medical decision making at this time based upon his condition and worsening symptoms also advised that all reported AEs were followed up on after being reported and studies remain ongoing. He was wondering, if you guys have heard of anything, anybody having the same issue flaring up after the COVID vaccine. Outcome of the events was unknown. Information on Lot/Batch number has been requested.
