Evangelical 'Prophet' Kat Kerr Says She Won't Get Vaccinated, but Would Have if Trump Won Election

Kat Kerr, a self-proclaimed "prophetess" and Evangelical preacher from Jacksonville, Florida, has said that she refuses to get a COVID-19 vaccination because former President Donald Trump is no longer in office.

While speaking with co-host Steve Shultz on their YouTube show Wednesdays with Kat and Steve!, Kerr acknowledged that there are several vaccine varieties. But she said she's not open to taking any of them, according to reporting from Right Wing Watch.

"I may have trusted [the vaccine] when Trump was sitting where the villain fraudulent person is sitting," she said, referring to current Democratic President Joe Biden. "But because they're not, I won't trust it. I don't trust you... I don't know what's in it, I don't know the makeup of it."

After very briefly mentioning that conspiracy theories exist about the vaccines, she suggested that people shouldn't put "anything extra in their body" if they are already healthy.

Kerr is the author of two books that purport to be an "eyewitness" account of Heaven. The front page of her personal website contains a quote attributed to "The Holy Spirit." One of the quotes attributed to the Holy Spirit on her website states, "Take the journey and check it out, it will make you praise Him and joyfully shout!"

Kerr has previously said that there is football in Heaven as well as a warehouse where God keeps spare body parts and organs for those in need. She has also said that that if a woman miscarries a child, God will put the soul of that child into a second child if the woman decides to get pregnant again.

In January 2021, Kerr claimed that God had personally told her that Trump is still president. Trump lost the election by 74 electoral votes and over 7 million popular votes.

Kerr isn't the only Evangelical to express doubt about the COVID-19 vaccine.

In December 2020, pro-Trump pastor Jack Hibbs said that he believed the COVID-19 vaccine is a means of social control that will "condition" people into accepting the Mark of the Beast. The Mark of the Beast is a Biblical prophecy of an anti-Christian marker placed on the head or the hand that will be required to buy necessities and participate in modern secular life.

Epidemiologists estimate that 70 percent of the population will need to develop immunity to COVID-19 in order to end the pandemic, whether through vaccinations or other means, according to Science Magazine.

Only a small number of people oppose vaccination for religious reasons, Heidi Larson, director of the Vaccine Confidence Project at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, told Nature.

Larson said that most people who oppose receiving vaccines often fear negative health effects, feel suspiciously of medical authorities or haven't had their concerns addressed by the information available on the websites of the World Health Organization (WHO) or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Newsweek contacted Kerr for comment.
