Tiffany Dover received the Pfizer vaccine at CHI Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga on Thursday and was giving a press conference when she began to faint and eventually pass out.
“All of my staff, you know, we are excited to get the vaccine. We are in the COVID unit, so therefore, you know, my team will be getting first chances to get the vaccine,” Dover said.
“And I know that it’s really … Sorry, I’m feeling really dizzy,” she continued.
One of the doctors caught her as she passed out about 17 minutes after receiving the shot.
“It just hit me all of a sudden, I could feel it coming on. I felt a little disoriented, but I feel fine now, and the pain in my arm is gone,” Dover said after recovering.
Doctors claim the episode was not related to the ingredients in the vaccine.
Dover told WTVC-9 she has a condition where she often faints when she feels pain.
