A pulmonary embolus (PE) is the result of a blood clot or a thrombus in a deep vein, most often in the leg. An embolus can break off of the deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in the leg and become a PE.

However, PE events which followed COVID vaccinations is a topic that already has published studies in the National Library of Medicine (NLM).
