Write-up: Potential Bell''s Palsy 8 days post Pfizer BioNtech COVID19 Vaccine Dose #1 Per documentation from emergency department provider: 32 y/o M who comes in from home for a new onset facial droop. Pt states that this is sudden onset today. he is unsure if it is related to the recent covid vaccine but has otherwise been well. He has no recent viral sx. He has no other neuro sx. He did have some pain in the jaw at the onset but that has since resolved. CT head obtained more for the jaw pain and to ensure no mass etc. It is normal. I discussed at length with the pt that I suspect this is bells palsy as he has very minimal movement of the forehead, cannot fully blink the L eye closed and has no risk factors for stroke. I did offer him further imaging to make 100% sure this is not a stroke but he agrees that he feels he has bells palsy and declined further labs or imaging. i will have him f/u with ENT as an OP. Given return precautions and f/u with them in the office. Given first dose of steroids and valacyclovir here. He will use artificial tears and tape the eye at night. .

CDC Split Type:

Write-up: Anaphylaxis Please note previous VAERS report of Bell''s Palsy 8 days following the first dose and subsequently treated with prednisone and valacyclovir. This neurologic diagnosis was not reported by the patient during the consent process with the COVID19 vaccination center staff. Confirmed following review of the consent form. Documentation from Emergency Department Provider: Patient is serially reassessed following treatment for anaphylaxis. Patient has significant improvement in diffuse erythema and hives within 20 minutes. He has gradual improvement in his sensation of throat swelling. He is observed while in the emergency department serially over 4 hours with no recurrence of symptoms. He does not require any repeat dose of epinephrine and feels at baseline. Discussed my suspicions that patient may have had a reaction to COVID-19 vaccine as he has had no other new medications or exposures that he is aware of. As he will not be receiving another vaccine there is nothing to necessarily stay away from. Make sure he notifies individuals about this for any new vaccine should he receive them. Patient is observed for sufficient time but discussed possibility for biphasic reaction. Recommend he return should he have recurrence of symptoms. Recommend he take EpiPen as prescribed for any throat swelling or progressive shortness of breath. Recommend follow-up with a primary care provider for this visit..
