“Inoculate yourself with the word of God,” minister Gloria Copeland said over a video sermon. Gloria and her husband are both the founders of the Kenneth Copeland Ministries in Texas. Gloria and her husband are both listed on President Trump’s evangelical advisory board. Gloria believes that if you have Jesus in your life, you don’t need to receive a flu shot.
“Well, listen, partners, we don’t have a flu season,” Copeland continued. “And don’t receive it when somebody threatens you with, ‘Everybody’s getting the flu.’ We’ve already had our shot: He bore our sicknesses and carried our diseases. That’s what we stand on.”
She continued by praising those who are faithful as immune to any such flu, “I’ll never have the flu. I’ll never have the flu.”
“Flu, I bind you off of the people in the name of Jesus,” she said, “Jesus himself gave us the flu shot. He redeemed us from the curse of flu, and we receive it and we take it, and we are healed by his strifes, amen.”
The flu shot continues to draw criticism due to its extremely high failure rate while the media continues to push the narrative that the flu is killing us off as a society.
