Chattanooga, Tennessee: Nurse manager Tiffany Dover had been giving a live press briefing from CHI Memorial Hospital about her team being amongst the first frontline workers to be given newly approved Covid-19 vaccinations, soon after Dover fainted.

Ms Dover was happily answering questions when she abruptly started trailing off.

Dover, “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,”
“And I know that it’s really … Sorry, I’m feeling really dizzy,” she added.

About 17 minutes after being given the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine Ms Dover collapsed as she was grabbed by two doctors who were standing nearby.
Dover recovered later, stating she has a condition that causes her to faint when she feels pain.

“It just hit me all of a sudden, I could feel it coming on,” she said.

“I felt a little disoriented but I feel fine now, and the pain in my arm is gone.”

Pain at the injection site is known as as a common side effect of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

The US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says it’s received reports of people fainting after almost all vaccines.
The CDC reports fainting is most commonly reported in adolescents receiving the HPV, MCV4 and Tdap vaccines.
