The nurse, Tiffany Dover, from CHI Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee, was one of the first frontline workers in Hamilton County to receive the vaccine, WTVC NewsChannel 9 reported.
But around 15 minutes later, Dover reported feeling dizzy and fainted shortly afterwards, with a doctor who was standing behind catching her as she fell.
The nurse quickly recovered and was able to stand up and speak to reporters who were present at the hospital. “It just hit me all of the 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 told WTVC.
The nurse told reporters she has a condition that often causes her to faint when she experiences pain. As a result, Dover said she was not surprised that she had fainted after receiving the vaccine.
“I have a history of having an over-reactive vagal response, and so with that if I have pain from anything—hangnail or if I stub my toe—I can just pass out,” Dover told WRCB Channel 3.
Why was she chosen to be filmed being vaccinated if she has a tendency to faint?
