Twitter CEO Elon Musk claimed in multiple tweets Friday night that he faced “major side effects” from a Covid booster and claimed his “healthy” cousin had a “serious case” of myocarditis.
“I had major side effects from my second booster shot. Felt like I was dying for several days. Hopefully, no permanent damage, but I dunno,” he tweeted. “And my cousin, who is young & in peak health, had a serious case of myocarditis. Had to go to the hospital.”
Musk’s tweets came in response to Rasmussen Reports data claiming a minority of those who have taken the Covid vaccine reported facing “major side effects.”
