READ: Adverse Events reported after COVID-19 vaccine, so far

The online Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is where medical professionals and patients can report issues following vaccination.

The mere reporting of an illness following vaccination doesn’t mean the illness was caused by the vaccine, but all reactions are supposed to be reported so that analysts can ultimately determine if a particular vaccine might be responsible for a previously unknown reaction. It can also indicate how common a known side effect turns out to be in the general population. And it can reveal which types of patients might be at greater risk of adverse reactions from a particular vaccine.

According to the government, reports available on the searchable VAERS database are several weeks behind the actual occurrence.

See the VAERS website here

The following are some of the several hundred events reported after Covid-19 vaccinations so far. They include complaints ranging from many relatively minor reactions to dozens of trips to Emergency Rooms.


The majority of cases generally described appear to line up with what scientists and the vaccine makers have said are expected, potential side effects of Covid-19 vaccines.

Public health officials say that the benefits of the coronavirus vaccines outweigh the risks. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) does not recommend everyone receive a coronavirus vaccine, at this point. Beyond the fact that supplies are limited, there are individual considerations that CDC says may exclude someone from receiving the vaccination. Further, the Pfizer vaccine is not approved for anyone under age 16, and the Moderna vaccine is not approved for anyone under age 18.

Pharmacist was diluting doses of vaccine for vaccination clinic in hospital. After dilution of 3 vials, the compounding pharmacist passed off to the on coming pharmacist. The on coming pharmacist grabbed one of the empty vials of vaccine and added diluent to the empty vial. 6 doses were drawn up and delivered to the vaccine clinic with only diluent in the syringe. The pharmacist in the clinic noted the number of syringe doses exceeded the number possible from the amount of vials used and sequestered all vaccine doses in clinic. It is possible some of the patients in the first hour received diluent instead of vaccine but is not known for certain. The pharmacist at the clinic kept the record of all the patients in the morning clinic. Would you recommend any actions prior to the second dose for these patients? Is there any utility in antibody testing the identified patients prior to administering the second dose? Have parameters been established for titter? Please provide direction.

51 thoughts on “READ: Adverse Events reported after COVID-19 vaccine, so far”

  1. It is shameful that we are living in an era of ignorance. The average person just goes along with whatever they’ve been told. When I share facts with those I know I am dismissed because they paused any sense of skepticism because social media has indelibly imprinted their brain. Those of us who ask the obvious questions are late to the game. Unsocial media is much to quick and impactful to be overcome by facts and logic.

    Unfortunately, those of us who are alert to corruption in government, science and media and called conspiracy nuts will need to save them all once again. I an 68 years old, work to stay in good health, take D3, Magnesium, Zinc, Vit C and f few other supplements. I work in 2 small business I started, am caring in hospice for a mother-in-law….neither me, my wife or mother-in-law have had as much as a sniffle. I think one of my upcoming fights will be to NOT take the vaccine. I don’t even take one for the flu.

  2. Sounds so more dangerous than HCQ. But, while one cures it and it harmless, the other might prevent it and give you chronic illnesses for the rest of your life. I would just rather have HCQ over the counter. I think a simple cure is better than anything the subhuman opportunist Bill Gates & Co. will ever come up with.

  3. I may have incorrect information but isn’t a booster required 21 days later? And I’ve read (again……check this out to be sure) that the second shot has more “stuff” in it? Can someone with vaccine knowledge respond here?

    1. Timothy Herrick MD,

      The doses are identical, but the second dose of either vaccine has been known to cause more side effects.
      The side effects listed here need to be compared with millions of vaccines being administered. And while frightening even these reactions are generally temporary, and do not indicate that, if they occur in the first dose, the person should not receive the second dose.

  4. I work as a nurse. This morning I received my second vaccine (Pfizer) at 7:30 am in my left deltoid. I waited 15 min before leaving as advised. Felt fine and started driving home. About 30 min after injection, I got a horrible taste in my mouth. It was almost like I had eaten soap or a nail polish residue. Five hours later, it is a metallic taste and I have increasing nausea. I’ll update this post tomorrow, I’m hoping this is the worst of it. It’s still better than having COVID.

  5. Alarmingly less than 12 hours after covid Med. Vac.- swollen upper lip- similar to an allergic reaction???
    Still swollen. Yikes~

  6. This information would be more meaningful and useful to your average person if the side effects mentioned were compared to the side effects experienced from other common vaccines.

    Most of these seem to be pretty harmless, and if there is a 95% efficacy in me resisting getting the virus, then I’m all in .

    I had my 2nd shot of the Pfizer vaccine about an hour ago, and aside from a slightly sore arm and a weird metallic taste, I appear to be otherwise fine. I know from experience that the sore arm will get worse tonight and tomorrow and be gone by day after tomorrow – same thing happens with pretty much any of the vaccines I get regularly.

    Much ado from people who can’t even balance their checkbooks.
    Trust the science and we’ll all be fine.

    1. Your reply “Much ado from people who can’t even balance their checkbooks.”, shows the superiority complex you have. This is not the venue to tell others how smart you are.

  7. First Pfizer shot today and immediate metallic taste in mouth. Nothing outside of that one thing. Hoping it doesn’t happen with second dose, but if that’s the worst, it’s not bad.

  8. Moderna vaccine on Thursday night, felt the wave of a full body flush within 10 minutes after shot. Tjis sensation was much like an IV sensation for CT scan from iodine solution. Not sure if I will get 2nd shot in 30 days~

    1. Hi Pam,
      I too had a flushed face & neck within a minute or 2 after receiving the Moderna vaccine on 3/1/21. I too am allergic to IV Iodine.
      Have you received the second shot?
      I am worried, but I can not find any reliable info as to whether this was a side effect?
      The CDC says if you have a side effect, you should not receive a second shot.
      Any response will be appreciated.
      Thank you,

  9. Had Pfizer vaccine day 1. Numbness left side of face and left hand 24 hours after vaccine. Seen in emerg day 3, no explanation for symptoms. Some ataxia nd diplopia ..Day 4 no change in symptoms .Will not be getting booster dose, and have cancelled appointment. I am thinking the vaccine has caused some inflammation in the trigeminal nerve, amongst others

  10. 4 hours after my 1st moderna shot, I felt prickly and achy. Didn’t want to deal with anything. Have always had to schedule flu shots on a Friday because of a flu like reaction… nothing I cannot handle. Get it,, do it..

  11. numb lower lip ten minutes after getting the first Moderna shot…bit of a weakness..95% o2 and high pulse for a bit 2 hours later…not sure about whether to get the second dose…

  12. Had moderna #1 on 2/27. 3 days later developed tinnitus. Still have it. I have an appt with ENT. There is no cure. Treatment with sound masking etc. is not covered by Medicare and health insurance. I hope this is temporary. I will not get shot #2.

  13. Family member took the first dose of Moderna vaccine (age 40). Due to history of allergy/asthma, took Benadryl prophalactically and continued for five days after the vaccination. Within days, developed a numb foot. MRI and physical therapy ordered for a diagnosis of “sciatica”.. History of back problems but not an entire limb numb. No improvement three weeks after onset. No acute injury to explain the persistent nature of the parasthesia. Family member is operating under the assumption that this is a coincidence and has NOT reported it as an adverse event.

  14. A few hours after receiving my second Pfizer shot, I had a feeling in my ear like I had fluid or like I had gone swimming and got water in it. That only lasted a short amount of time. To me t thought I sounded funny every time I talked. The next day I just had a very sore left arm. The next day I had the sweats and thought I was running a fever, but every time I checked I was not. The temperatures ranged from 96.5 to 98.5. I was prepared for a fever but never had one.

  15. Hey I’m 26 years old received my first moderna shot April 2nd and had the usual side effects but the next day I woke up my face puffy and red feeling flushed and this feeling still has not went away almost two weeks later. Should I be concerned and see a doctor?

  16. Had 1st Morderna shot March 30, next day felt flu like symptoms and sore arm. Two days later right leg and arm went numb for 5 minutes – could not walk – had to sit on floor where I was. Cleared up in 10 minutes. Next week had right side numbness on different days at different times. Checked into the Emergency room for tests associated with a stroke. They ran every test – MRI’s, CT’s, X-rays, blood test, Heart checked – could find nothing wrong.

    Not getting 2nd shot – this was due to the first shot – no question about it.

  17. I am a nurse, had Pfizer vaccine #1 12/29/21 had severe body aches x 3 days, had #2 1/19/21, no side effects at the time… I went in for a simple ovarian cyst removal surgery on 3/8/2021 , approx 14th surgery ive had over my 32 year life.. never had any issues until this one. Came out of recovery, was told surgery went well…never had anything that i didnt have in the past, medication wise. 30 minutes after I came out of surgery i started having seizures, major convulsing, oxygen dropped in the 70’s, i was so out of it and dazed. ended up having a total of 6 seizures that day only when i would fall asleep. The next few days-weeks I couldnt remember my birthday, phone number, couldnt get my words out correctly. I am now almost 2 months out and am having anywhere from 10-30+ seizures daily.. all only while sleeping. On seizure meds, have had Brain CT, MRI, multiple EEG’s and no answer… the only difference in this surgery was that I had covid vaccines. I have now lost driving capabilities, can only do desk work and no one has any answers, but I am seeing more and more patients that had the same vaccine and now have unexplainable seizures months later.

  18. After having my first Pfizer injection in March I had absolutely no side effect at all. I had my second Pfizer vaccination on April 7, 2021 and all hell broke loose. Within 5 minutes after receiving the injection my chest began to fill heavy, my pulse was racing and I was experiencing difficulty breathing. I am a nurse and most of the time we nurses tend to ignore our own symptoms. I waited my fifteen minutes, made my way to my care and my symptoms began to worsen. Our vaccination site keeps paramedics on site so I had them check my vital signs. My blood pressure was very high for my and I an EKG indicated an irregular heart rate and rhythm so I was encouraged to go to the ER. My granddaughter to me to the emergency room where I was found to be experiencing multiple episodes of couplets and triplet PVCs. BP was extremely high for me with systolic over 200 and diastolic over 100. I was placed on the cardiac unit for observation for 24 hours and was discharged with a cardiology consultation. I have been undergoing testing and have been connected to a home cardiac monitor for over a week now. They are still trying to figure out why my heart continues to be experiencing PVC’s. This has been a major life changing event for me. I stay weak most of the time and am unable to function like I was prior to the second vaccination. I am praying they will find out what has gone wrong and how to fix it. I would never discourage anyone from taking the vaccination. As a nurse I believe the good that vaccine has done is helping us get control of this pandemic far outways the bad that unfortunately befalls some of us who experience side effects from the vaccine. I do worry though that we see many more side effects as time goes by.

    1. Do more research.

      The juice isn’t worth the squeeze.

      Actually, we’ve trained the virus to become stronger rapidly, courtesy of the vaccine rollout.

      Before you reject the thought, take the time to check in to it.
