Gloria Copeland: No Need For Flu Shots Because 'Jesus Himself Gave Us The Flu Shot'

In a video posted on January 31 on the Kenneth Copeland Ministries Facebook page, Gloria Copeland tells viewers to "inoculate yourselves with the word of God".

"Jesus himself gave us the flu shot", she said. We have a duck season, deer season, but we do not have a flu season. "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". He endured our sickness and raised our sicknesses, "she noted referring to Jesus".

Gloria Copeland, her husband and their daughter have expressed skepticism or antagonism toward vaccines and medicine in the past. "And by his stripes, we were healed". When we were cured, we were cured.

'Just keep saying: I'll never have the flu, I'll never have the flu, ' she added, asking her followers to inoculate themselves with God. "I'll never have the flu.' Inoculate yourself with the word of God", Copeland said. According to the CDC, 9.7% of all U.S. deaths in the first week of February were due to the flu and pneumonia.

"This includes the flu!" If you're overcoming the flu right now, listen in as Gloria prays for YOU! I'm asking you Lord with your supernatural power, to heal them now from the top of their head to the soles of their feet, flu I bind you off of the people in the name of Jesus, ' she began.
