Truth : Dax Tejera Did Not Die From Vaccine-Induced Heart Attack!
It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Dax Tejera Died From A Heart Attack
Dax Tejera – an ABC News executive producer passed away from a heart attack on Friday, December 23, 2022. This was confirmed by ABC News President Kim Goodwin in a staff memo on Christmas Eve :
Since then, more details have emerged about his death. Dax Tejera collapsed while walking back from dinner with his wife at a New York City restaurant. He was taken to Manhattan’s Bellevue Hospital in an ambulance, but died before he could reach it.
So let me be clear – Dax Tejera died from a heart attack while walking back from dinner. He did not die in his sleep, and he did not die from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect.
Fact #2 : Heart Attack Is A Common Cause Of Sudden Death
An acute myocardial infarction (AMI), or a heart attack, occurs when blood supply to the heart muscle is abruptly cut off, usually due to a blockage of one or more coronary arteries.
It is a very common cause of sudden death. Every year, about 805,000 Americans suffer a heart attack, of which about 382,000 die. Every year.
People have been dying from heart attacks long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.
And no, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause heart attacks, no matter what anti-vaccination activists may claim.
Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting heart attacks, or dying from them.
Fact #3 : Unknown If Dax Tejera Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19
Anti-vaccination activists claim that Dax Tejera was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19. However, there is no evidence of that, as he never publicly revealed his vaccination status.
For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States where he lives, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.
Dax Tejera took his family to St. Barts for a holiday in July 2021, which some anti-vaccination activists are claiming as evidence he was fully vaccinated. That’s not true, because St. Barts allows both vaccinated and unvaccinated Americans to visit.
- Fully-vaccinated American and Canadian travellers can visit St. Barthelemy without undergoing any PCR or antigen test.
- Unvaccinated American and Canadian travellers can visit St. Barthelemy with a negative PCR test for COVID-19, taken within 3 days prior to departure, or a negative antigen test taken within 2 days prior to arrival.
So it is possible that Dax Tejera was never vaccinated against COVID-19. Until and unless we know his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that Dex Tejera died from the COVID-19 vaccine is lying to you.
Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days
Even if Dax Tejera was fully-vaccinated before his trip to St. Barts in July 2021, he cannot possibly be suffering from any vaccine side effects, because they appear within days, not 17 months later.
Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.
The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.
Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccine Injuries Can Be Proven
Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.
Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.
Fact #6 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False
This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.
So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false celebrity claims!
