A NY Times editor has died of a heart attack at 49, one day after receiving a Moderna Covid “booster” shot
Carlos Tejada, Deputy Asia Editor for The Times, has died at the age of 49. Before his death, Tejada was an editor in Asia for 13 years, including with The Wall Street Journal. He spent his career at the Journal before joining the Times in 2016. He was married and had two children.
According to a post by former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson, Mr. Tejada died of a heart attack one day after receiving a Moderna Covid “booster” shot. In July, Mr. Tejada received a Johnson & Johnson DNA/AAV Covid vaccine in July. He was thankful to get it, per his Instagram page.
Then on December 16, in Seoul, South Korea, Carlos Tejada received a Moderna mRNA/LNP “booster.” Below is how Berenson described the Moderna booster shot:
“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.”
Then one day after receiving a Moderna Covid “booster” shot, Carlos Tejada died of a heart attack, Berenson said. In a post on Twitter, Carlos’s wife, Nora Tejada, also confirmed that her husband died of a heart attack. In a tweet, Nora said:
“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.”

In a separate article, The New York Times also reported in a Dec. 22 piece confirming his wife’s tweet:
“His wife, Nora Tejada, said the cause was a heart attack,” Times reported.
Before his death, Mr. Tejada was the China news editor for The Wall Street Journal when The Times hired him in 2016 to be its Asia business editor. He was later named deputy Asia editor in 2020.
As you may recall back in November, The American Heart Association (AHA) warned that the mRNA vaccines ‘dramatically increase the inflammation on the endothelium (inner heart membrane)’ after a study of 566 patients found that risks of severe problems increased to 1 in 4, compared to 1 in 9 before.
