Anti-Vaxxers Won’t Stop Harassing Nurse They’re Convinced Is Dead from COVID vaccination

    Tiffany Dover is not dead.

    According to all official sources, she is alive and well and working as a nurse at CHI Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga. Last week, she was pictured on the front of the local newspaper caring for a north Georgia police chief who had been in the hospital for nearly 100 days.

    Dover is not the victim of some medical mishap, as her mourners allege, but of a massive global conspiracy theory that has united anti-vaxxers and COVID skeptics in a dangerous attempt to prove themselves right.

    The outcry started in mid-December, when six staff members at CHI Memorial Hospital were selected to receive their first dose of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine on live TV. Dover, a nurse manager at the hospital, was one of them.

    [She faints.]

    Minutes later, Dover is back on her feet, telling television cameras that she suffers from a medical condition that makes her prone to fainting. “I have a history of having an overactive vagal response, and so with that if I have pain from anything—hangnail or if I stub my toe—I can just pass out,” she said.

    [Conspiracy takes over.]

    By Dec. 19, the uproar was so intense that the hospital was forced to issue a tweet saying that Dover was “home and doing well” and asking for privacy for the nurse and her family.

    With the conspiracy theorists only getting louder, on Dec. 21 the hospital took the extraordinary step of releasing what was essentially a proof-of-life video. The 20-second clip shows Dover standing on a staircase in the hospital, surrounded by other nurses holding signs with the day’s date and the hashtag “CHIMemorialStrong.”

    [Faced with overwhelming evidence, the conspiracy dissipated. Haha, no.]

    I have to wonder why there seems to be this need to film vaccine administration on live TV in the first place.

    Oh! I work for CHI, too. :D I'm on the other side of the country, though.

    My aunt and cousin are anti-vaxxers... They do they whole essential oils thing. I'd rather just get my vaccine since I actually do deal with covid patients on a regular basis.

    There's NO room for opinion when there's empirical evidence. I don't usually take such a hard view on things, but really? What part of the term 'global emergency' don't these people understand?

    They need to seriously grow up and campaign about things that they ACTUALLY know something about.

    Once you believe what you believe is true and anyone who denies your belief is a liar, there is no end to the insanity you end up in.

    Rudy on Saturday said that the Lincoln Project was behind the 6th Jan invasion, and they are suing. It is sad to see people lose their sanity, and then just go deeper.

    There was a time when facts were facts, and you could research and come to a real conclusion. For those who have no critical thinking, and the universe of the internet, little wonder they can end up insane. As a trained scientist and working with computers, you know all that matters are facts, cause and effect, the rest is just belief.

    I like adaption of animals but not evolution. I want equality of people, but not ignoring skills and talents of all. I thank God we do not live in a dictatorship, and though it takes time, people will be won over by the facts.

    God bless you

    I’m in the natural healing camp too. I don’t personally know anyone who contracted Covid. But if you’re exposed to the virus early vaccination makes sense.

    I was confident until this B117 UK variant came along. It's been a disaster over here - three friends of mine were hospitalised, with one being taken severely ill. All of them were in their 30s.

    To be fair, I think it's more of a horrible coincidence that I just happen to know them all, but still. Learn from our mistakes. We dithered about and acted far too late. And now we're coming first in all of the wrong categories.

    On a plus note, my mother got the AstraZeneca jab on Saturday. I've been in touch, she's not building pyramids for Bill Gates yet.

    Although she was talking about Klaus Schwab a lot..

    I think we're long past engaging with these people. They should be ignored. Arrested if they harass frontline workers, but otherwise ignored. No amount of evidence will ever convince them - it's a mental illness at this point.

    What’s the end game here? What are they’re trying to prove? At this point, there’s nearly 100 million who have received the vaccine worldwide. Let’s assume she actually died (she didn’t, just to be clear here). One death out of millions is statistically insignificant if you’re trying to prove the vaccine is dangerous. If they are harassing her and her family directly, they need to be arrested or on a watch list- how disgusting. Also, essential oils improve moods and probably help some skin conditions and can be used in cleaning to kill viruses outside of the body on hard surfaces, they don't really prevent nor cure co-vid or any other serious diseases. At best, they might alleviate mild symptoms of various illnesses; they do not prevent nor cure.

    That might leave them with a lot of time on their hands.

    Some people just reject the obvious. It's a mental disorder, at least that's the only explanation that I can come up with. There are countless examples. The 5G issue. I worked closely with high powered microwave devices for 3-1/2 years. My 7 heads all agree that it's not a health problem. And the earth is a sphere. Otherwise, cats would have pushed everything that moves over the edge by now.

    I remember on here a few years (and probably a username) ago there was a bit of a ruckus over a 15-year-old girl in the UK who had an aneurysm fatally burst shortly after receiving the HPV vaccine. It turned out to be a birth defect that was never detected, a one in a million chance but in the finest precautionary principle the NHS pulled the batch of vaccine until after the autopsy.
    Someone on here (can't remember who) was arguing that the pulling of the batch was somehow sinister, and surely there hadn't been enough vaccinations for a one in a million chance to come up.

    As it turns out, by then there had been 1.4 million HPV jabs given.

    Their chemistry is quite interesting, they're mostly laden with terpenes and terpinoids, which are the precursors of an awful lot of useful things - several vitamins and almost all steroids. Clove oil is an exception which is rich in Eugenol, which is used as an antiseptic and local anesthetic.

    That's good that you haven't had to encounter it yet! About a third of the people I work with have gotten it already, and I get to see the effect it has on people every day... I have an abnormal amount of exposure to it compared to the average person, which I think has colored my perspective (and my personal bias) on the issue.

    After re-reading what I wrote originally, it seems as though I could be perceived as lumping the anti-vaccination movement together with nateropathic healing. My apologies, as those are two very distinct things from eachother.

    I didn’t think that. :)

    My contact with people is limited. I haven’t been in a crowd in a year. A lone trip to Costco and I never returned. Most things are delivered and we work at home. My relatives are retired and do the same.

    That's a video, though, rather than the picture from the newspaper and there's a bunch of people and I'm not sure which one is supposed to be her, or if she was even that video.

    They could have at least given the name of the newspaper.

    Okay, I think I found the article they're referring to. I think it's this:
    'A Very Miraculous Recovery' | The News Observer, Blue Ridge, Georgia

    I think she's supposed to be the second from the right? Her hair style is different but the nametag looks pretty similar, even if it's too small in the picture for me to be sure.

    It's possible the article itself mentioned her, but it looks like you have to be a subscriber to read anything past the first few sentences.

    Again, it would have been a lot more useful if they had simply specified the name of the newspaper and the date of the article so someone could more easily find it.

    It might be this. Hard to say with masks, but the nurse second from right looks like a good match.

    Obviously, this is not going to placate the conspiracy theorists, but check the ID compared to the link in the OP.
