For those already apprehensive about getting the new COVID-19 vaccine, a nurse in Chattanooga, Tenn., certainly didn’t help matters.
Tiffany Dover, head nurse at CHI Memorial Hospital, received the vaccine and then shortly thereafter went before cameras to speak with the media — and she passed out on live TV.
Dover was responding to questions from reporters when she began struggling.
“I’m sorry, I’m feeling really dizzy,” the nurse manager told reporters. “I’m sorry.”

She tried to walk away from the microphone but didn’t get very far before fainting. Fortunately, doctors were nearby and managed to catch her before she collapsed to the ground.
News Channel 9 reported that minutes later she was able to address reporters, and doctors said the vaccine did not cause the episode, according to News Channel 9.
Not long after fainting, Dover addressed reporters saying she has a condition where she faints sometimes when feeling pain.
“It just hit me all of a sudden,” she explained. “I could feel it coming on. I felt a little disoriented but I feel fine now, and the pain in my arm is gone,” she said.
(Presumably referencing to the vaccine shot.)
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the new COVID-19 vaccines after clinical trials were conducted according to rigorous FDA standards. This allowed the agency to determine that the vaccines meet its safety and effectiveness standards.
Various officials are agreeing to receive the vaccine to convince people that it is safe.
On Friday, Vice President Mike Pence is expected to take a shot in the arm, along with second lady Karen Pence, to promote its “safety and efficacy,” according to Fox News.
The vice president, who will also be joined by Surgeon General Jerome Adams at the White House, will become the highest-profile U.S. recipient.
President Donald Trump tweeted on Sunday that White House staffers should not be among the first to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
“I am not scheduled to take the vaccine,” he added, “but look forward to doing so at the appropriate time.”
People working in the White House should receive the vaccine somewhat later in the program, unless specifically necessary. I have asked that this adjustment be made. I am not scheduled to take the vaccine, but look forward to doing so at the appropriate time. Thank you!

Former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama have all said they would publicly get the vaccine to help demonstrate its safety and effectiveness.
Joe Biden, the man who received enough electoral votes on Monday to be deemed the next president, despite widespread concerns of voter fraud, said Wednesday that he’d get the vaccine publicly to bolster public confidence.
A transition-team source told The Hill this could be “as soon as next week.”
“I don’t want to get ahead of the line, but I want to make sure we demonstrate to the American people that it is safe to take,” Biden said. “When I do it, I’ll do it publicly, so you can all witness my getting it done.”
Of all the responses to the story, the one getting the most attention was from a social media user claiming the vaccine is a “microchip in injection form to get all data about you and put a tracker on you.”
This being part of “a government plan to take control of our minds and build a society where we are like mindless servants to them.”
Little does he know the Democratic Party and the corrupt media establishment have already beat the government to that.
Here’s a sampling of a few skeptical responses to that tweet:
Everyone already has a chip on them that records video sound and locations. Its called a cell phone.

Bruh. Why wouldnt they just put the chip in literally any of the other vaccines already available. Why would they need to make a new pandemic just to put a tracker in a new vaccine.
