In an op-ed posted on his network’s website, Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy offered praise for the Biden administration’s rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines and urged Americans to get their shot.

He wrote, in part:

Six months into his administration, President Joe Biden should be applauded for making a huge dent in the COVID pandemic.

He inherited an effective vaccine from President Donald Trump, took it into his arms, and ran with it.

The success of this approach has been obvious. Serious deaths and hospitalizations (the most important COVID data) have collapsed.

The bottom line: The vaccines are safe and effective. More than 3.6 billion shots have been given worldwide, and some 338 million here in the U.S. alone.

Meanwhile, deaths caused by the coronavirus have fallen to record lows, with almost negligible side effects to those vaccinated.

At Newsmax, we have strongly advocated for the public to be vaccinated. The many medical experts who have appeared on our network have been near unanimous in support of the vaccine.

I myself have gotten the Pfizer vaccine. There’s no question in my mind, countless lives would have been saved if the vaccine was available earlier.

As I wrote earlier today about Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Fox News host Sean Hannity, it seems the dive the stock market took yesterday really jolted these wealthy Republicans to get serious about the vaccination effort.
