MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The former Tennessee vaccine director says she wants to clear her name and is now suing the state in federal court.

Dr. Michelle Fiscus was fired after lawmakers objected to her promoting COVID-19 vaccinations for teenagers and offering ways to get them without parental consent.

Her lawsuit claims she couldn’t have sent herself a muzzle from an account listed in a state investigation.

The Tennessee Department of Homeland Security investigation shows the package with the muzzle was sent from an Amazon account using a credit card both of which were in her name.

Her attorney claims the credit card had been lost and canceled for more than a year.
