Write-up: COVID-19; COVID-19; Pneumonia; respiratory failure; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer. An 80-year-old female patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE) via an unspecified route of administration on 02Jan2021 for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history included Alzheimer''s and others. No known allergies. Concomitant medications included unspecified medications. The reporter''s mother in law was tested for COVID-19 at a nursing facility on 25Dec2020 and she was negative. On 02Jan2021, she received the first dose of Pfizer vaccine. On 04Jan2020, she developed a high fever, needed oxygen and was positive for COVID-19. Date of death was 04Jan2021. The cause of her death was listed as pneumonia, respiratory failure and COVID-19. No autopsy performed. No treatment received. No one knew if the vaccination contributed to her death. It was hard to know if her death was due to the administration of the vaccine or it exacerbated the COVID19 symptoms which led to her death. Since this was unknown, it could have been a possibility. The reporter wanted to give us this information because we might want to consider having high risk population, patients with underlying conditions, older population tested for COVID-19 prior to the vaccination, as this is not currently a recommendation or a requirement. All is very new and they are all learning so the reporter wanted to share this information with us. The patient did not receive any other vaccines within 4 weeks prior to the COVID vaccine. There are medications the patient received within 2 weeks of vaccination. Prior to vaccination, the patient was not diagnosed with COVID-19. Since the vaccination, the patient has been tested for COVID-19. The outcome of the events was fatal. Information about Lot/Batch has been requested.; Sender''s Comments: The association between the fatal event lack of effect (pneumonia, respiratory failure and COVID-19) with BNT162b2 can not be fully excluded. The impact of this report on the benefit/risk profile of the Pfizer product is evaluated as part of Pfizer procedures for safety evaluation, including the review and analysis of aggregate data for adverse events. Any safety concern identified as part of this review, as well as any appropriate action in response, will be promptly notified to regulatory authorities, Ethics Committees, and Investigators, as appropriate.; Reported Cause(s) of Death: Pneumonia, respiratory failure and COVID-19; Pneumonia, respiratory failure and COVID-19; Pneumonia, respiratory failure and COVID-19; Pneumonia, respiratory failure and COVID-19
