'Dover is Not Dead', Claims Hospital Authorities

After her fainting spell sparked fear amongst several, Dover had claimed that it was not a reaction to the vaccine. "I have a history of having an over-active vagal response, and so with that if I have pain from anything, a hangnail or if I stub my toe, I just pass out," she was quoted by Heavy.

Netizens Ask Dover To Respond to Her Death Reports

Allegedly she was doing fine already shortly after the fainting incident, and she was so eager to be in public with her vaccination - why does she need privacy now?" tweeted a user.

"The public would like to hear from Tiffany Dover NOT the hospital. Your tweet does NOTHING to help restore public confidence," expressed another.
