“I have quite a history … I’ve had three brain surgeries. Let’s just say my immune system’s probably weak.”

MIFFLINTOWN, Pa. (WHTM)

67-year-old Cathy Husler got her first COVID-19 shot on Feb. 3, started having chills the next day, and a day after that, had chills so bad, she went to the ER.

“My temperature was 103.8,” Husler said. She had to stay overnight at Geisinger Lewistown.

“Wanted to rule out that I didn’t have any heart issues, that I didn’t have pneumonia, did a chest x-ray, did a CT scan to rule out that I didn’t have blood clots,” Husler said.

Husler said doctors told her that her severe chills were likely related to her COVID shot.

Tracking serious COVID-19 vaccine reactions

by Hannah Dineen (NEWS CENTER Maine), February 15, 2021

BRUNSWICK, Maine — Since COVID-19 vaccinations first became available, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) warned the public about common side effects of the vaccine: soreness or swelling at the injection site– or fever, chills, tiredness, and/or a headache in the days following vaccination.

Occasionally, there are more serious reactions or “adverse reactions” to the vaccine. Federal authorities are tracking those reactions through an online database.

The database is called “VAERS,” or the “Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.” It’s not new. VAERS was established more than two decades ago and is co-managed by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

VAERS is used to monitor adverse reactions to all approved vaccines, most recently, the COVID-19 vaccines.

Mid Coast Hospital Chief Medical Officer Chris Bowe said, “It’s really set up so information can be obtained if there’s an unusual or unexpected reaction.”

Bowe continues, “It’s a nice system in that individuals can report it themselves. Anyone can report.”

While patients can report any reaction, health care systems are required to report the following adverse events after vaccinations occur:

  • Death
  • A life-threatening event
  • Inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization
  • A persistent or significant incapacity or substantial disruption of the ability to conduct normal life functions
  • A congenital anomaly/birth defect
  • An important medical event that based on appropriate medical judgment may jeopardize the individual and may require medical or surgical intervention to prevent one of the outcomes listed above.

Furthermore, healthcare providers are encouraged to report to VAERS any additional clinically significant AEs following vaccination, even if they are not sure if vaccination caused the event.

The FDA and the CDC use the data to spot concerning trends and determine how often and how widely they happen … Read more.
