A New York Times deputy Asia editor, Carlos Tejada, posted on social media he had gotten a Moderna COVID-19 booster shot.
Less than a day later, he died, at age 49.
The National Pulse documents that Tejada “was grateful to receive the mRNHA/LNP booster while in Seoul, South Korea, after originally getting the Johnson & Johnson DNA-AAV COVID-19 shot in July.”
“Less than a day after receiving his Moderna booster on December 17th, Tejada died of a heart attack. The news was shared via Tejada’s social media by his wife Nora the following morning,” the report said.
Tejada worked in part on the paper’s COVID-19 coverage and was married with two children.
He previously had worked at the Wall Street Journal.
The report noted former Times reporter Alex Berenson said online Tejada did not give informed consent for the latest shot, since the form was in Korean.
Tejada recently had joked that Omicron could “hit [him] with your wet snot,” before going on to say, “all I had to do was fill out this form in a language I cant read. Translation software tells me I now belong to the BTS army.”
Berenson also noted there haven’t been clinical trials on mixing two different types of shots, but studies do show that those who get shots in rapid succession are more likely to develop heart complications.
“The NY Times has thus far made no reference to Tejada having received his booster shot just hours before his premature death,” the report said.
