Carlos Tejada was married and had two children; he spent his career at the Wall Street Journal before joining the Times in 2016.
In July, he received a Johnson & Johnson DNA/AAV Covid vaccine. He was thankful to get it, per his Instagram page.
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.”
A day later, Carlos was dead of a heart attack.
RIP Carlos Tejada, Dec. 7, 1972 - Dec. 17, 2021.
If this does not wake the Times nothing will.
