Surgeon General to Newsmax TV: We Could Be 'Normal' by Summer

By    |   Saturday, 19 December 2020 10:09 AM EST

Surgeon General Jerome Adams says the quickest way to normalcy is a vaccinated public.

"This thing is 95% effective; we have the ability to put this virus away and get back to normal, which is what everyone wants, but we need good uptake of the vaccine," Adams said Saturday during an appearance on Newsmax TV's "Saturday Report."

"The finish line is in sight; we just got to keep running through it."

Adams also encouraged a free flow of information for vaccine skeptics.

"It's OK to have questions," Adams told host Carl Higbie, a self-proclaimed vaccine skeptic. "I'm really sick and tired of the shaming of everyone, all the way around.

"It is OK to ask questions and you should ask questions. But what is not OK is to let misinformation lead you down a pathway where you're making an unhealthy decision."

As for vaccine mandates, it is better for America as a whole if everyone willfully takes the vaccine, said Adams.

"I have been going back and forth with the media about mandates," Adams said. "My approach is I don't want you to do something because we're making you do it.

"I want you to do it because you've asked your questions and I've given you a reasonable explanation as to why you should do these things, and I hope that people will do their research and do the right thing for themselves and for their communities."
