Write-up: ball palsy, facial dropping; painful shingles; This is spontaneous report from a contactable consumer reported for herself. A 47-year-old female patient received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE; batch/lot number: EK5730; dosage form: injection) via an unspecified route of administration as injection to left arm on 24Dec2020 at 7:30 am at a single dose for COVID-19 immunization. Relevant medical history and concurrent conditions included slight hypertension from Jul2020 and ongoing. Concomitant medications included lisinopril from Jul2020 and ongoing for slight hypertension. The patient developed ball palsy, facial dropping which did not lasted long but she still had the painful shingles on 27Dec2020, after the first dose. She wanted to know the recommendations for taking the second dose which is due in 10 days. The patient wanted to know if she should receive the shingles vaccine. This caller was a lab tech who works in the healthcare industry and manages a medical office; but clarified she did not call on behalf of a healthcare professional. She was the patient who received her first dose of Pfizer SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine on 24Dec2020. She reported onset of what the Urgent Care Physician believed was Shingles on 27Dec2020. She called to ask if she should or should not receive the second dose of Pfizer SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine on 14Jan2021 as scheduled due to the Shingles. The Urgent Care Physician advised her to still get the second dose, as there was about a 1:10,000 chance of developing shingles with the vaccine. She reported shingles as a reaction subsequent to the Pfizer SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine. Initially on 27Dec2020 she developed sites of what she thought were canker sores or fever blisters in her mouth which had gotten pretty large and stopped her from being able to eat on 29Dec2020. Then on 30Dec2020 she developed sites on her face which have gotten scarily large; and was causing some deep nerve pain going to her eye and down her chin; the sites felt like lesions on her face with roots. The sites in her mouth were now completely gone; but the sites on her face are ongoing. Now it has kind of taken over her face. She saw the Urgent Care Physician regarding this who believed the sites to be shingles. She had never had fever blisters or shingles before this event. She was still kind of reeling. The report was reported as non-serious. The outcome of event ball palsy/facial dropping was resolved and of shingles was unknown.
