A Tennessee nurse fainted live on television just 17 minutes after getting the Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.
Nurse Tiffany Dover was among the first nurses in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to receive the vaccine on Thursday, December 17.
She was having an interview with local news outlet News Channel 9 when the incident occurred.
‘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.
After recovering, she and her colleagues insisted it 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.
