Carlos Tejada, deputy Asia editor for The New York Times, reportedly died from a heart attack one day after receiving the Moderna booster shot.
According to his social media account, Tejada previously received two Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine shots.
In a December 17 tweet, Tejada’s wife Nora announced on Twitter (in an account that is now locked) that the 49-year-old journalist tragically died of a coronary-related issue the night before. “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,” she wrote.
In breaking the story, lockdown and vaccine skeptic Alex Berenson, himself an ex-Times reporter who is permanently banned from Twitter (and is now suing the platform as a result), asserted the following on his Substack page:
“On Dec. 16, in Seoul, South Korea, [Tejada] 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.”
Tejada, a former Wall Street Journal editor who went to work for the Times in 2016, had commemorated his third jab on Instagram: “Double-vaxxed. Janssen-fueled, Moderna-boosted. Hey, Omicron: Hit me with your wet snot.”

The Times obituary also included the cause of death, attributing that information to his spouse, and explained that Tejada “helped shape coverage of the global Covid-19 crisis that won a Pulitzer Prize.”
The write-up from the so-called newspaper of record contains no mention of a vaccine issue, however, which perhaps is hardly a surprise in that the corporate media establishment has monolithically adopted a pro-vaccine editorial policy, including frowning upon even those who raise good-faith questions or merely seek additional information about safety or efficacy.
This dismissiveness often extends to those who are anti-mandate but nonetheless favor the COVID vaccination program itself.
In a July Instagram post, Tejada, who worked as an editor in Asia for 13 years, wrote, among other things, that he and his wife benefitted from the “privilege” to get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and he was thankful for the scientists and medical professionals in that context.

The news of the respected journalist’s tragic passing, and particularly the lack of coverage of the timetable, has prompted a huge response on Twitter. Here is just a sampling:
Mr. Tejada died one day after receiving his booster shot. The Times obit of course neglects to mention that. This is terribly sad, and the Times is doing Mr. Tejada, his family, and the world, a disservice by attempting to hide this critical information.

If the COVID vaccines are so safe then why has the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) attributed over 20,000 deaths from the 'vaccines' in the USA? Most people won't experience a severe event from the vaccines but people need to weigh the risk. https://t.co/sTQRHQZvwp

Hey @RichSandomir I’m curious why @nytimes left out that Carlos Tejada had a Moderna booster the day before he died of a heart attack ? What does it take to do honest reporting?

Good morning @nytimes this is a long scrolling email. It is a missed opportunity not to include a follow up article of Carlos Tejada dying the same day he got a Moderna booster. pic.twitter.com/LKbW2Ug7vg

MSM never report that the NYT editor received a Moderna ‘booster’, the day before he died of heart attack. Is it inappropriate to report it while keep publishing the vaccine propaganda anyway? https://t.co/BMtSI9QHLs
