Tennessee Nurse Faints After Receiving Coronavirus Vaccine

Nurse Tiffany Dover received a coronavirus vaccine and attended a scheduled press briefing in regards to the vaccine when she began to feel dizzy.”We are in the COVID unit, so therefore, you know, my team will be getting first chances to get the vaccine” Dover stated as she began feeling dizzy. “And I know that it’s really…Sorry I am feeling dizzy” as she stated out loud. She held her head as she tried to finish her statement but began to collapse as a doctor caught her while she passed out.

She had only received the vaccine 17 minutes before giving her press briefing speech. Doctors say the fainting was not related to any ingredients in the COVID-19 vaccine. They stated that the  nurse has a condition where she often faints when she feels pain. The CDC gave a statement saying that fainting may occur after “various types of vaccinations and medical procedures, usually due to pain or anxiety”.
