On April 15, Vivek took his first jab of Covid-19 vaccine at a government hospital in Chennai and suffered heart attack the very next day. He was admitted to ICU on April 16. The hospital where he was admitted released a statement that read, “This is an acute coronary syndrome with cardiogenic shock. This is a separate cardiac event.
