First Dose of Pfizer on 03/01/21 Lot #EN6198

San Antonio, Texas

59 yrs old

Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?


Q: Would you like to share your reasons for getting vaccinated?

I was forced to. San Antonio VA threatened to have my benefits cut off if I didn't.

Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?

Within 3 hours I developed fatigue, muscle pain, nausea and abdominal issues, diarrhea.

Q: What is your life like now, after getting the vaccine?

I am still fatigued, with abdominal pain, diarrhea, and the muscle in my tongue doesn’t work properly

Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any diagnoses you have received:

Went in for severe abdominal pain 3 times within a month. I was told it was acid reflux or a stomach bug. On my last visit I had severe cramping, dry heaves, throwing up blood and bile. They had to take out my gallbladder. Extra bonus, I got the delta virus in August anyway.

Q: Was your reaction reported, and what was the response?

Reported it to Pfizer and VA

Q: Is there anything that has helped, and have your symptoms improved?

Not really.

Q: Have you had Covid before? What was your experience if so?

In August I got it after being double vaccinated

Q: What do you wish others knew?

I don’t think this vaccine is safe.
