This is the scary moment, a nurse who had just received the coronavirus vaccine at a hospital in Tennessee told reporters that she felt dizzy and then fainted.
Nurse Tiffany Dover received Pfizer-BioNTech on Thursday at CHI Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga and held a press briefing as she began to retire, according to WTVC-9.
“All my employees, you know, are excited to receive the vaccine. We are in the COVID unit, so, you know, my team will get the first chances to receive the vaccine “, said Dover.
“And I know it’s really … I’m sorry, I feel very dizzy,” she continued.
One of the doctors behind her caught her when she fainted about 17 minutes after receiving the fire.
“It simply came to my notice then. I felt a little disoriented, but I feel good now and the pain in my arm is gone, “Dover said after recovery.
Doctors said the episode was not related to the ingredients in the vaccine.
Dover told WTVC-9 that he has a condition in which he often faints when he feels pain.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also said that fainting can occur after various types of vaccinations and medical procedures – usually due to pain or anxiety.
