An undercover video in which a suspected Pfizer exec raises concerns about the impact of the Covid shot on the menstrual cycle went viral last night.
Jordon Trishton Walker – who was rumored to be an executive in Pfizer’s research and development department – was caught in the film admitting it was “concerning” that “something irregular” was happening to women’s periods after they got the vaccine of the company had received.
“The vaccine shouldn’t interfere with that… It has to affect something hormonal,” he told an undercover reporter for right-wing activist group Project Veritas.
The video was trending on Twitter last night under the hashtag “Pfertility” and has been viewed 6 million times at the time of writing. Many commentators, including Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene, have raised concerns about the impact of vaccinations on fertility.
There has long been a concern among women that it could cause infertility due to the novelty of the vaccine and mRNA technology and the observable changes they have on the menstrual cycle.
But while it’s widely accepted that the Covid vaccine causes some menstrual irregularities, there’s nothing to suggest it’s affecting women’s chances of conceiving. In fact, birth rates in America and Britain have increased 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 of its covert operation against Trishton Walker.
“There is something irregular about your menstrual cycle. So people have to investigate that later — because that’s a little worrying,” he told the reporter.
“If you think about the science it shouldn’t interact with [glands responsible for hormones]. The vaccine shouldn’t interfere with that, so we don’t really know.
He added: “Something happens, but we don’t always find out.”
After a cut in the video, he continued, saying, “I hope we don’t find out that the mRNA somehow lingers in the body because it has to affect something hormonal to affect the menstrual cycle.”
contacted Pfizer again this morning about the claims in the video but received no response. This website has updated the pharma giant on the Project Veritas story more than half a dozen times in the past week.
Previous research has confirmed that the Covid vaccines can temporarily affect a woman’s menstrual cycle.
An early 2022 study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and conducted by researchers at Oregon Health & Science University found that women who received the vaccine had an average menstrual cycle a day longer than usual.
Although they induce fear in some cases, officials do not warn of long-term damage from these changes.
The study involved nearly 4,000 American women, 2,400 of whom were vaccinated.
More than half of the vaccinated study population received Pfizer’s vaccine, with the remainder receiving Moderna or Johnson & Johnson’s vaccines.
The change was also temporary, and the women’s periods returned to normal over the following month.
“It’s reassuring that the study found only a small, transient menstrual change in women,” said Dr. Diane Bianchi, director of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development – part of the NIH, at the time.
A study published in September 2022, also funded by the NIH, came to similar conclusions.
The much larger study collected data from nearly 20,000 women in the US, UK and Canada.
It turned out that the menstrual cycle of women who received the vaccine increased by less than a day after the first vaccination, and by about half a day after the second.
The cycles had returned to normal in the affected women over the next month.
Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have also been linked to heavy bleeding during menstruation, although no long-term harm is believed to be associated with this.
Experts are unsure why this is happening. Some believe the vaccine causes part of the body tissues to become inflamed, leading to changes in the lining of the womb and hormone levels throughout the body.
However, there have been no proven links between the vaccine and infertility, although theories making such claims have circulated on social media.
One of the main claims on social media is that spike protein, made by mRNA, can enter the uterus and attack proteins in a woman’s placenta.
As a result, conspiracy theorists say, the unborn child will miscarry.
Experts have dismissed these claims, saying there is no basis for it.
Still, many women worry that the vaccine could lead to infertility. A University of Miami study published last year found that 41 percent of unvaccinated women feared the vaccine could affect their reproductive health.
Pfizer’s vaccine, a joint project with German company BioNTech, is the most widely used vaccine in the United States and much of the western world.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the vaccine has been given 400 million times to over 100 million Americans.
Early fertility data in the US shows no evidence the vaccine has done any harm.
When the vaccines were first introduced, the CDC initially did not recommend them for pregnant women due to the lack of available data to prove their safety.
However, that changed towards the end of 2021, when data from Israel and across Europe showed the vaccinations were safe for pregnant women and their unborn children.
The U.S. birth rate rose 1 percent in 2021 to up to 11 births per 1,000 women ages 15-44. This is the first increase since 2014, but still a significant decrease from the rate of 13 per 1,000 women of childbearing age in 2010
Utah and North Dakota are the most fertile states in America and the only ones to have recorded more than 13 births per 1,000 childbearing women of age. The states with the lowest total fertility rates were concentrated in the Northeast region
The CDC announced earlier this week that America’s fertility rate rose 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 has increased year on year.
However, many of these babies were conceived in 2020 before the vaccine became available.
Population data from later years are needed to determine if there is reason to link the vaccines to infertility.
There are also questions as to whether Mr. Trishton Walker works at Pfizer and what role he plays in the company.
The first Project Veritas video caused a stir on social media last week when Mr Walker claimed Pfizer mutated the virus in a lab to prevent new variants.
On Friday night, Pfizer quietly issued a press release denying those claims — but not denying Mr. Walker’s employment at Pfizer.
noted last week that an email for Jordon Walker is active at the company, suggesting someone by that name works for the New York City-based firm.
The company also has a position titled Director, Research and Development and mRNA Scientific Strategy, which is similar to the title Mr. Walker is said to hold.
The description, released last October, suggests the role is primarily about business development rather than scientific experimentation.
When asked by , a Project Veritas spokesman said the company had independently confirmed Mr Walker’s employment at Pfizer, but had received no response from the company after several inquiries.
