About 17 minutes after receiving the Pfizer’s vaccine against COVD-19, she started feeling dizzy, apologized and fell over before she was caught by doctors standing behind her.
“It just hit me all of a 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,” Ms. Dover said.
However, doctors at CHI Memorial said the fainting episode was not related to the Pfizer-made vaccine.

Just last week, it was revealed in a document released by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that 6 participants died during Pfizer’s COVID vaccine trials. Meanwhile, another volunteer died during trial of COVID-19 vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford University.
Earlier, drug giant AstraZeneca had stopped global trials of its coronavirus vaccine after it caused a mysterious illness in one of the volunteers. The company said it is investigating the cause of the unexplained illness but did not say who had stopped the trial. The mysterious illness is reported to be an inflammatory syndrome known as transverse myelitis which may lead to paralysis.
Lat week the Australian Government was forced to scrap a billion dollar coronavirus vaccine agreement with Australian biotech company CSL Limited for supply of 51 million doses of a Covid-19 vaccine being developed by the University of Queensland after several trial participants returned false positive HIV test results.
