A nurse in Chattanooga, Tennessee fainted on live television just moments after she was administered the COVID-19 vaccine.
Tiffany Dover, a nurse manager at CHI Memorial Hospital, was speaking to members of the media when she began to feel dizzy.A film crew from television station WTVC captured the moment when she collapsed and was caught by one of the doctors.
“It just hit me all of the sudden,” she told the television station. “I could feel it coming on. I felt a little disoriented but I feel fine now and the pain in my arm is gone.”
Doctors told reporters that her medical episode was not caused by the vaccine, but it’s unclear how they could know that.
“It is a reaction that can happen very frequently with any vaccine or shot,” said Dr. Jesse Tucker told the television station. “No reason to suspect that that’s due to the vaccine whatsoever.”
