Tennessee nurse passes out after getting COVID-19 vaccine

 A head nurse at a hospital in Chattanooga, Tenn., caused a brief scare on Thursday when she fainted shortly after receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine, according to reports.

Tiffany Dover, the nurse manager at CHI Memorial, received the vaccine and then, a short time later, addressed the media. Video circulated online that showed her taking questions from reporters and then lose her train of thought.

"I’m sorry, I’m feeling really dizzy," she said. "I’m sorry."

News Channel 9 reported that minutes later she was able to address reporters. Doctors said the vaccine ingredients did not cause the episode.
