EDMONTON — A 43-year-old Canadian radio broadcaster is dead in what sounds like an extremely unpleasant, prolonged death.
Mrs. Adrienne Pan received her first Moderna mRNA injection on April 21. She posted the proverbial band-aid on the arm photo to both Twitter and Instagram that day. Mrs. Pan disclosed that she had a preexisting pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lung), which should have immediately disqualified her from all of these injections. Instead doctors told her she is ineligible for the AstraZeneca shots, but should be fine with Pfizer or Moderna.
She received the Moderna injection at BetterLife Medical and Pharmacy in Laurier Heights that day. Mrs. Pan said she was “incredibly grateful” and that she is “in total disbelief I’m vaccinated against COVID-19, 13 months in. Humans can be awesome.” Mrs. Pan reported no immediate adverse effects.
Mrs. Pan didn’t talk much about the injections prior to her own. But afterward, she became a de-facto spokesperson for Moderna and the “vaccine” agenda overall. Just six days later, on April 27, Mrs. Pan posted a chart, and wondered why people in their 50s were “lagging in getting their shots.”
That same day, she posted government data saying that most post-injection adverse reactions were the result of the Pfizer shots.
She posted a GIF on May 6 that says “I’m a hottie with antibodies.” The caption reads, “All the millennial COVID-19 vaccine happiness going on in [Alberta] right now is just a darn delight.”
She posted the hashtag #TeamModerna on May 7.
Mrs. Pan replied to a tweet suggesting people prefer Pfizer over Moderna on May 22. She wrote that Moderna is 92% effective, and that she’s “excited” to get her second injection soon.
She tweeted more government propaganda stats on May 25 and 26.
Her last actual tweet came on May 27. She did a few retweets on May 28 and May 30. But then she completely disappeared from Twitter. It was very unusual because she averaged at least 100 tweets per month since January 2020.
Mrs. Pan had one more Instagram post on June 20 of a birthday cake that apparently had the wrong spelling of her name on it. She disappeared from Instagram thereafter. It’s unclear if or when Mrs. Pan received a second Moderna injection. But in Canada, the government recommends a one-month gap between the two doses. Thus Mrs. Pan would have been eligible on May 19. Again, she said she was excited to get the second one on May 22.
Mrs. Pan apparently got very sick, very fast. She hadn’t done her afternoon CBC radio show since at least June 2021. People started wondering what happened to her in the fall. A Reddit post from September in r/Edmonton asked, “What happened to CBC Radio 1’s Adrienne Pan?” One person commented that they emailed the show, and a producer told them that she was on personal leave, with an undetermined return date.
News broke on Monday that Mrs. Pan passed away on January 15 after “battling a serious illness for months.” There’s been no information released at all about what exactly happened. But it sounds like she was in the hospital for quite some time. Coincidentally or otherwise, she disappeared from social media and the radio right around the time she was to receive her second injection.
Mrs. Pan had been with CBC Edmonton in some capacity since 2011. She is survived by her both parents and her husband.
