Jose Peralta's official cause of death was Sepsis.
He reportedly had the flu vaccine 2 wks prior to his passing. Awful.

Sepsis is a rapidly-spreading bacterial infection in the bloodstream.

It has nothing to do with the flu or the flu vaccine. (The flu is viral, not bacterial)

Technically, a needle puncture to the skin could be an entryway for bacteria to enter the bloodstream. Staphylococcus aureus is common skin bacteria that can cause infection in its own host. A vaccination would not be a likely source of infection due to the use of alcohol prep, single use syringes, and barriers like gloves and bandaids, but possible if sterility is somehow breached.

Death from sepsis happens in a few days (or even less). If he had the flu shot 2 weeks prior...

According to the medical examiner, who just released a report, Senator Peralta's official cause of death was complications from leukemia. A family spokesperson said they did not know he had the disease.

Jackson Heights Post: CB3 Votes to Name Jackson Heights Street After Jose Peralta

Feb. 26, 2019  By Meghan Sackman

State Sen. Jose Peralta, who represented Jackson Heights since 2002 in Albany until his unexpected death late last year, may be getting a street named after him in the neighborhood he both lived in and served.

The northeast corner of 79th Street and 37th Avenue, the street where Peralta lived with his wife and children, may bear his name after a street co-naming proposal was recently introduced by Council Member Daniel Dromm and unanimously passed Community Board 3 last Thursday.

“Jose Peralta and I were friends for close to 20 years,” Dromm said in a statement to the Jackson Heights Post. “His work in the community makes him truly deserving of this honor.”

The council member said he has spoken to Peralta’s widow, Evelyn, about the naming, and has received her blessing.
