49-year-old Carlos Tejada, a New York Times Deputy Asia Editor, died of a heart attack last week mere hours after getting a Covid booster shot.
Mr. Tejada received a Johnson & Johnson Covid vaccine in July, per his Instagram account.
Tejada received a Moderna booster shot on December 16 and died of a heart attack less than one day later.
“Double-vaxxed. Janssen-fueled, Moderna-boosted. Hey Omicron: Hit me with your wet snot,” Tejada boasted on Instagram on December 16.
“On Dec. 16, in Seoul, South Korea, he received a Moderna mRNA/LNP “booster.” No clinical trials have ever been conducted to examine the safety or efficacy of mixing various types of these vaccines, and Carlos did not give informed consent, as the consent form was in Korean, a language he could not read. He joked that Omicron should “hit me with your wet snot.”” former New York Times journalist Alex Berenson wrote on his Substack.
Tejada’s wife announced on December 17 that her husband had “passed away last night of a heart attack.”
Tejada leaves behind a wife and two young children.
This is Carlos’s wife, Nora. It’s with deepest sorrow that I have to share with you that Carlos passed away last night of a heart attack. I’ve lost my best friend and our kids lost a truly great dad. I will be off social media for awhile.
