“All of my staff, you know, we are excited to get the vaccine. We are in the COVID unit, so, therefore, you know, my team will be getting first chances to get the vaccine. And I know that it’s really … Sorry, I’m feeling really dizzy,” she said. About 17 minutes after being received the vaccine Ms Dover collapsed as she was grabbed by two doctors who were standing nearby her. She later recovered, saying she has a condition that causes her to faint when she feels pain.
