Carlos Tejada, age 49, was the deputy editor of the Times’ Asia department. He was based out of Seoul, South Korea. On December 18, wife took to his Twitter page to announce that he had died of a heart attack the night before:
It’s a sad situation in and of itself, a man dying abruptly of a heart attack at the age of 49. But it is impossible not to ask questions when you consider what he posted on Instagram on December 17, likely no more than a few hours before he died:
Given fact that we know the most common negative side effects of these Covid vaccines are heart issues, it’s natural to wonder if the booster shot had anything to do with Tejada’s fatal heart attack.
I hate to “politicize” a man’s death, because it’s a very sad situation, but it’s not even about politics as I see it. It’s not about being able to say “I told you so” regarding vaccine adverse events.
It’s simply that we want the truth. Did the Moderna booster lead to Carlos Tejada’s death? Did the vaccine have anything to do with his fatal heart attack?
The public has a right to know. We have a right to know the risks involved with these vaccines. What are the real odds of something like this happening to someone who receives a vaccine shot?
We have a right to know this stuff.
People need to be fully aware of the risks they’re taking on when they choose to get a vaccine shot.
