A Tennessee nurse fainted on live television. 17 minutes after getting the Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.
The Nurse identified as Tiffany Dover was among the first nurses in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to get the vaccine on Thursday, December 17.
The incident happened during an interview with local news outlet News Channel 9, after she was giving the vaccine. The lady was heard saying;
‘It’s really… I’m sorry I’m feeling really dizzy. I’m sorry…’ she said as she suddenly started feeling unwell before dropping to the ground with two colleagues rushing to catch her.
Dover after she recovered at the hospital, she and her colleagues insisted that her fainting had nothing to do with the vaccine but a condition that causes her to collapse when she feels pain.
‘It is a reaction that can happen very frequently with any vaccine or shot,’ said Dr. Jesse Tucker, Medical Director of critical care medicine at CHI Memorial, who also received the vaccine.
