Mr. Tari Dean Dailey

ROBINS, IOWA — A 73-year-old Iowa man received an mRNA shot on Tuesday morning, February 16. He had a headache afterwards, so he laid down for a nap, according to daughter, Dawn Dietz. Mr. Dailey never woke up from the nap.

Facebook added the ultimate to injury, placing its “vaccines are safe” message right after Mrs. Dietz’s post. It is unclear whether Mr. Dailey got the Pfizer or Moderna mRNA shot.

There has been an outpouring of condolences since his death. Mr. Dailey was the Director of Store Operations at Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity ReStore. He was also a volunteer for the organization. Mr. Dailey was co-owner and operator of Ogden & Adams Lumber in Cedar Rapids, Iowa from 1991 to 2012. His Facebook page indicates that he was married.
