Write-up: Thrombocytopenia noted; Elevated temps to 104; Associated chills; headaches; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable healthcare professional. A 16-year-old non-pregnant female patient received bnt162b2 (BNT162B2 reported as PFIZER COVID-19 VACCINE), dose 1 intramuscular on 25Apr2021 (Lot Number: EWO171) as 1st dose, single for covid-19 immunization. Medical history included eczema, Pyle disease, food allergies, short stature, seasonal allergies, peanuts allergies and nuts allergies. It was unknown if the patient was diagnosed with COVID-19 prior to vaccination. The patient''s concomitant medications were not reported. The patient did not have other vaccine in four weeks. On 26Apr2021, the patient had elevated temperatures to 104 [unspecified unit], 4-5 days post vaccination (pending clarification) with associated chills and headaches. Thrombocytopenia noted. The adverse events resulted in doctor or other healthcare professional office/clinic visit. No treatment was provided for the adverse events. The patient was tested post vaccination with a nasal swab test on 28Apr2021 and the result of negative. The reporter did not consider the events was serious. The outcome of the event was recovering. No follow-up attempts are needed. No further information is expected.; Sender''s Comments: The reported event thrombocytopenia was observed only 1 day after vaccination. It is unlikely that thrombocytopenia is related to BNT162B2. It''s more likely intercurrent medical condition. 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.

CDC Split Type:

Write-up: Patient presented to the ED with dizziness, fever and heavy vaginal bleeding around 24 hours after receiving her first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. She was tested for active COVID-29 infection via nasal swab PCR and tested positive. Upon presentation labs were drawn and her platelet count was found to be 8 on 5/15. Repeat labs were drawn that day to confirm low platelet count and confirmed diagnosis and thrombocytopenia secondary to an immune reaction to the vaccine was suspected. She was admitted and was started on tranexamic acid, medroxyprogesterone, dexamethasone and IV immunoglobulin (Ig) to help treat low platelet count and vaginal bleeding. As of writing, she is still admitted and her most recent platelet count on 5/17 was 16.

CDC Split Type:

Write-up: Site: Bruising at Injection Site-Mild, Site: Pain at Injection Site-Mild, Site: Swelling at Injection Site-Mild, Additional Details: Immediately after administering vaccine, patient bled quite a lot. I wiped the area 2 times times and applied pressure for ~1 minutes. Applied a cotton ball under a band-aid. Within 1 min of the vaccine, the pt developed a pump that appeared to be filled with blood under the surface. She stated that the site felt like "when you initially get poked with a needle". I recommended to take ibuprofen 200-400mg q4-6 hours until the swelling decreases, to apply a cold compress, and call md if worsens.
