An undercover video in which an alleged Pfizer executive raises concerns about the Covid shot’s effect on menstrual cycles went viral last night.
Jordon Trishton Walker – who is said to have been a senior staffer in Pfizer’s research and development division – was caught on film admitting it was ‘concerning’ that ‘something irregular’ was happening to women’s periods after getting the company’s vaccine.
‘The vaccine shouldn’t be interfering with that…It has to be affecting something hormonal,’ he told an undercover reporter for the right-wing activist group Project Veritas.
The video was trending on Twitter last night under the hashtag ‘Pfertility’ and had been viewed 6million times at the time of writing. Many commentators, including Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene, raised concerns about the impact of the jabs on fertility.
There have been long-standing fears among women that because of the newness of the vaccine and mRNA technology and the observable changes it has on menstrual cycles, it could cause infertility.
But while it is widely accepted the Covid vaccine causes some irregularities to menstruation, there is nothing to suggest this affects women’s chances of conceiving. In fact, birth rates went up in America and the UK in 2021.

There is no confirmation that Mr Walker (pictured) works at Pfizer, but a statement released by the company last week did not deny he was an employee
This is the second video Project Veritas has released from their sting operation targeting Trishton Walker.
‘There is something irregular about their menstrual cycles. So, people will have to investigate that down the line – because that is a little concerning,’ he told the reporter.
‘If you think about the science it shouldn’t be interacting with [glands responsible for hormones]. The vaccine shouldn’t be interfering with that so we don’t really know.’
He added: ‘There is something happening but we don’t always figure it out.’
After a cut in the video, he continued, saying: ‘I hope we don’t find out that somehow the mRNA lingers in the body, cause it has to be impacting something hormonal to impact menstrual cycles.’
DailyMail.com approached Pfizer again this morning about the claims made in the video but did not hear back. This website has reached out to the pharma giant more than half a dozen times in the past week about the Project Veritas story.
Previous research has confirmed that the Covid vaccines can temporarily impact a woman’s menstraul cycle.
An early 2022 study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and carried out by researchers at Oregon Health & Science University found women who received the vaccine have a menstrual cycle one day longer than usual, on average.
While anxiety-inducing in some cases, officials do not warn of any long-term harm from these changes.
The study included nearly 4,000 American women, 2,400 of which were vaccinated.
More than half of the vaccinated study population received Pfizer’s shot, with the rest receiving the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
The change was temporary, too, and women’s periods returned to normal by the following month.
‘It is reassuring that the study found only a small, temporary menstrual change in women,’ Dr Diane Bianchi, director of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development – part of the NIH, said at the time.
A study published in September 2022, also funded by the NIH, came to similar conclusions.
The much larger study gathered data from nearly 20,000 women across the US, UK and Canada.
It found women who received the vaccine had their menstrual cycle extended by less than a day after receiving the first jab and for around half a day after the second.
Cycles had returned to normal by the next month in affected women.
Both Pfizer and Moderna’s vaccines have also been linked to heavy bleeding during menstruation, though there are not believed to be any long-term harms associated with it.
Experts are not sure why this occurs. Some believe that the vaccine causes some of the body’s tissue to become inflamed, causing changes to the lining of the uterus and hormone levels across the body.
But there have been no established links between the vaccine and infertility, even though theories alleging such have circulated on social media.
One of the main claims made on social media is that the spike protein formed by the mRNA can enter the womb and attack proteins in a woman’s placenta.
As a result, conspiracists say, the unborn child will be miscarried.
Experts have dismissed these claims, saying there is no reason for this to occur.
Still, many women have fears that the vaccine could cause infertility. A University of Miami study published last year found 41 percent of unvaccinated women feared the shot could harm their reproductive health.
Pfizer’s vaccine, a joint project with the German firm BioNTech, has been the most commonly used vaccine in the US and much of the western world.
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data, the vaccine has been administered 400million times to over 100million Americans.
Early fertility data in the US does not show any signs the vaccine caused harm.
When the vaccines first rolled out, the CDC did not initially recommend them to pregnant women due to a lack of available data proving their safety.
However, this changed towards the end of 2021 when data from Israel and across Europe showed the shots were safe for pregnant women and their unborn children.
The US birth rate increased by 1 percent in 2021, up to 11 births per every 1,000 women between ages 15 and 44. This is the first rise since 2014 but still a significant drop from the rate of 13 per 1,000 birthing age women recorded in 2010
Utah and North Dakota at the most fertile states in America, being the only ones where more than 13 births were recorded for every 1,000 birthing aged women. The states with the lowest overall fertility rates were concentrated in the Northeast region
The CDC revealed earlier this week that America’s fertility rate increased by one percent in 2021 – the first year the vaccine was available.
It was the first year since 2014 that the number of children born in America increased year-over-year.
However, many of these babies were conceived in 2020, before the shot became available.
Population data from years down the line will be needed to determine if there is any reason to link the vaccines to infertility.
There are also questions about whether Mr Trishton Walker works at Pfizer and his role at the company.
The initial Project Veritas video caused a frenzy on social media last week, with Mr Walker claiming that Pfizer was mutating the virus in a lab to preempt new variants.
On Friday night, Pfizer quietly put out a press release denying these claims – but did not deny Mr Walker’s employment at Pfizer.
DailyMail.com determined last week that an email for Jordon Walker is active at the company, implying someone with that name does work for the New York City-based firm.
A job titled Director, Research and Development and mRNA Scientific Strategy also exists at the company, which is similar to the title Mr Walker is said to hold.
The description posted last October suggests the role mainly involves business development rather than scientific experiments.
When asked by DailyMail.com, a Project Veritas spokesperson said the firm had independently confirmed Mr Walker’s employment at Pfizer but had not received any response from the company after multiple inquiries.
