A Pfizer official expressed concern about his company’s mRNA COVID vaccines and their impact on female reproductive health in a second round of a recent Project Veritas sting.
Jordon Trishton Walker, an official who leads research and development for mRNA projects, recently said to an undercover Project Veritas journalist that the company uses “directed evolution” to mutate coronaviruses and create more potent variants and vaccines. More footage captured by the journalist and released on Thursday evening shows the embattled official revealing that Pfizer is not entirely sure why the vaccines are impacting women’s menstrual cycles, postulating that the effects could be evidence of hormonal disruptions.
“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 said. “The vaccine shouldn’t be interfering with that.”
“I hope we don’t find out that somehow this mRNA lingers in the body and like — because it has to be affecting something hormonal to impact menstrual cycles.”

Researchers have previously found that COVID vaccines impacted menstruation; one international study from the Oregon Health and Science University concluded that “some people may experience a slight, temporary change in the length of their monthly menstrual cycle” after receiving the vaccine. Another study found that 42% of women with regular menstrual cycles reported heavier bleeding than usual after inoculation.
Walker told the undercover journalist that Pfizer is expanding mRNA technology for applications in oncology and gene editing. When the journalist asked whether Pfizer would be held liable for vaccine injuries, Walker said that he does not think so “because usually when you give drugs to people and there is a known side effect, it’s encoded on the FDA label.” Beyond impacts on menstrual cycles, the CDC says there is a “rare risk” of developing myocarditis and pericarditis as a result of the vaccine, particularly among younger males.
Walker added that he hopes there are no unknown side effects that emerge over the next several years. “I hope nobody is growing three legs or something like that,” the journalist prompted. “Yeah, or the entire next generation is super f***** up. Could you imagine the scandal? Oh my God,” Walker replied. “I would take Pfizer off my resume.”
With respect to the abnormal menstrual cycles, Walker said the vaccine should not be interfering with the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis, the system which regulates menstrual cycles, but admitted “there is something happening, but we don’t always figure it out.”
“I hope we don’t discover something really bad down the line. I hope we don’t find out that somehow this mRNA lingers in the body,” he continued, “because it has to be affecting something hormonal to impact menstrual cycles.”
Walker also acknowledged that if the public realizes “there was something wrong with the vaccine,” they will criticize widespread pressure campaigns meant to encourage inoculation. “Because there was a lot of social pressure, government pressure, job pressure to get the vaccine,” he said. “And if something were to happen downstream, and it was really bad, I mean, the scale of that scandal would be enormous.”
Although Pfizer appears to have not yet responded to the second round of the Project Veritas sting, the company denied conducting gain-of-function research after the initial footage was released. “Working with collaborators, we have conducted research where the original SARS-CoV-2 virus has been used to express the spike protein from new variants of concern,” a statement read. “This work is undertaken once a new variant of concern has been identified by public health authorities. This research provides a way for us to rapidly assess the ability of an existing vaccine to induce antibodies that neutralize a newly identified variant of concern.”
In a follow-up video, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe confronted Walker, who called himself a “liar” who apparently made up the stories to try to impress a person with whom he thought he was on a date. He also denied that anyone is trying to mutate a COVID virus.
Walker insisted he is “not even a scientist by background … I came from a consulting firm that does business.” Asked whether he works for Pfizer, Walker said, “No, I was a contractor!” Pressed again, this time on whether he currently works for Pfizer, Walker replied, “No! What are you talking about here?”
Despite his denials, Walker’s apparent LinkedIn profile, which appears to have been deleted, and images of “internal” Pfizer documents shared on Twitter by O’Keefe suggest otherwise. Walker is listed as being a Pfizer “director of research and development, strategic operations, and mRNA scientific planning.”
Pfizer did not respond to questions from The Daily Wire about Walker’s employment status.
