Reviews for Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine

Bertie · Taken for less than 1 month · September 23, 2021

For COVID-19 "After first dose felt exhausted for about three days. On the fourth day foolishly embarked on physical activity and developed a heart arrythmia, breathless and chest pains. Later diagnosed with vasculitis (a condition that I had never heard of, let alone ever had before). Had second vaccine 11 weeks after the first with no increase in symptoms. The vasculitis resolved, but not the arrythmias. Treated with atenolol and seeing a cardiologist who hasn't confirmed the link to the vaccine, but says that it is "possible". I don't know whether I will get a booster as I am now a bit of an invalid!"

For COVID-19 "Hello, I am a 48 year old male in good health. I had a mild case of Covid-19 in November, 2020. Now both my wife and I received the Pfizer shots. We both experienced mild flu-like symptoms the next day. However, less than 36 hours after receiving the vaccines, we both felt fine. We have had no other side effects."

For COVID-19 "I had no problem with the first two shots of Pfizer, but when I took the Booster, I started getting pain in my legs and back. Sitting and getting up, I have so much pain it takes my breath. So I know it was the Booster shot that caused my problem. I am afraid to take the second Pfizer booster shot. I am an 81-year-old woman."
