Pfizer, the pharmaceutical company that manufactures the COVID-19 mRNA vaccine, has issued a warning to its employees about the potential threat of so-called “anti-science activists” after an incident involving one of its workers.
According to a leaked document, Dr. Jordon Trishton Walker, the director of research and development for mRNA projects at Pfizer, apparently revealed confidential information to an undercover journalist from Project Veritas.
The document appears to reference Dr. Walker as a current employee of the company, confirming the veracity of Project Veritas’ reporting.
In the leaked video published by Project Veritas, Walker is heard making claims about the impact of Pfizer’s COVID vaccines on women’s menstrual cycles and the use of “directed evolution” to create more potent variants and vaccines.
Pfizer has not yet officially commented on Walker’s employment status.
However, the newly leaked document states, “We are aware of and managing a recent incident where one of our colleagues was baited into conversation in a social situation and recorded without their knowledge.”
It goes on to emphasize the importance of fact-based information and the dangers of spreading baseless claims, saying, “Anti-science activists are becoming increasingly brazen in their drive to gain and manipulate information, fueling the spread of baseless claims and endangering public health.”
Dr. Walker, in the leaked video, expresses concern about the functioning of the vaccine and the possibility of hormonal disruptions in women.
He can be heard saying, “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, because it has to be affecting something hormonal to impact menstrual cycles.”
Walker’s deleted LinkedIn profile and additional Pfizer documents shared by Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe suggest that the doctor was indeed employed by the pharmaceutical company.
In another video, when confronted by O’Keefe, Walker claimed to have fabricated his prior statements about Pfizer conducting directed evolution and referred to himself as a “liar.”
The document also warns Pfizer employees to be cautious of “surprising and confrontational” tactics used by organizations such as Project Veritas, adding that sensitive and confidential information must be safeguarded at all times.
Pfizer published a press release that confirms Walker’s claims, namely that Pfizer has “engineered” viruses.
Although the response notes that “Pfizer has not conducted gain of function or directed evolution research,” the statement does say that antiviral assessments use “computer simulations or mutations of the main protease–a non-infectious part of the virus.”
It goes on to say that Pfizer researches mutations, even adding that “when a full virus does not contain any known gain of function mutations, such virus may be engineered to enable the assessment of antiviral activity in cells.”
