Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.


Went to Walmart to get the Maderna vaccine.Pharmacist said the Phizer was just approved and they would have it the next day,I should come back and get that.Within 1 minute I got very overheated,within 3 minutes had difficulty breathing,then could not breathe or speak.My throat closed off completely.I believe if they had not stabbed me with an epi pen right then I would not be here today..They called an EMT who was working there that day,called a code white in the pharmacy,an ambulance came and the paramedics checked me,said my blood pressure was extremely low.They couldn't believe it and checked it again.I was taken out of Walmart on a stretcher and spent the next 4-5 hours in the hospital with IVs and tests.I could not sleep at all for 2 days after that and since then my energy level has been extremely poor.I can only work about 2 hours a day then I have to lie down most of the rest.I have since researched what is in the shot should, have done that beforehand.
