The incident took place in a hospital in Tennessee. Nurse Tiffany Dover was vaccinated and went out to reporters to talk about it.

“All my staff are very happy to receive the vaccine. We are in the COVID department, so, as you know, my team will receive the vaccine first of all,”the publication quotes the medic.

Then she put her hand to her forehead, apologized and passed out. One of her colleagues kept her from falling to the floor. By that time, about 17 minutes had passed since the injection.

When Dover regained consciousness, she said that she was amazed at what had happened, she foresaw the approach of this state and felt disoriented. “But now I'm fine, and the pain in my arm is gone,” she added. She admitted that she loses consciousness when she feels pain.

Doctors note that this case is not related to the ingredients of the vaccine. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also confirmed that loss of consciousness can occur after various types of vaccinations and medical procedures, the cause is pain or anxiety.

Recall that the first coronavirus vaccine, developed by the American company Pfizer and the German BioNThech, was given in the United States on December 14. As part of a large-scale vaccination in the country, vaccinations will first be given to medical workers, and then they will be available to everyone else.
