Fact check: Nurse who fainted after COVID-19 vaccine did not die

Social media users have been sharing posts that claim that the nurse who fainted after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine is dead. This claim is false: the Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where Nurse Manager Tiffany Dover works, confirmed to Reuters that she is well.

Most posts reference an “Alabama nurse,” likely conflating two pieces of misinformation (previously debunked by Reuters here and here ) .

The posts (here , here , here , here) share videos (here , here , here) or screenshots that show that the websites Ancestry.com and SearchQuarry have a record of Tiffany Dover or Tiffany Pontes (which they claim is her real name) from Higdon, Alabama, who died at the age of 30 in 2020, also listing some of her known relatives. Captions include, “Tiffany Dover confirm (sic) dead from vaccine”; “Tiffany Dover – Another Vaccine Casualty”; and “Tiffany Dover … passed away.”
