Nurse passed out after receiving coronavirus vaccine

Shortly after receiving an injection of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine, the American nurse passed out in front of the cameras as she spoke at a press conference. It happens to me regularly when I feel pain, she later explained to the American media.
The scene occurred on Thursday and was captured on WTVC-9 television. A nurse at CHI Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee, fainted while speaking to reporters about a quarter of an hour after receiving a Covid vaccine.
In the footage, the nurse says she feels really dizzy, then walks away from the microphone before passing out. Two hospital workers helped her cushion her fall.
Tiffany Dover quickly regained her senses and was able to speak on the microphone of WTVC-9. It hit me all of a sudden, I could feel it coming. I was feeling a little disoriented, but I feel good now, and the pain in my arm is gone, she said.
The United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention would like to stress that this phenomenon is not uncommon. With any vaccine or injection, there are people who pass out. Scientists therefore assume that the cause should be sought in the vaccination process, and not in the ingredients of the vaccine themselves.
