CDC Split Type:

Write-up: Vagal reaction: immediately after injection, I felt my heart palpitating, I felt light-headed, and I heard distorted noises. I became disoriented for a moment or two, then heard clearly again. The nurse helped me lay down for about 5 minutes and gave me water and juice to drink. She said I looked pale; my blood pressure was lower than my normal reading, and my heart rate was 50. After resting for a few moments, I felt fine, and I have not felt any faintness or pain at the injection site since. The nurse did not report this reaction, because in her judgment it was simply a vagal reaction and unrelated to the vaccine. I shared this information with two employees of Merck; one of them asked me to report this reaction anyway, and the other may have reported it separately.
