Olivia Rodrigo Visits the White House to Encourage Vaccination
The pop star Olivia Rodrigo spoke at a news conference with Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary. Ms. Rodrigo’s visit is meant to encourage young people to be vaccinated against Covid-19.
So I have a special guest with me today. Joining us in the briefing room is actress and multi-platinum recording singer-songwriter Olivia Rodrigo, who traversed red lights and stop signs to see us. If you know her music, you’ll get that dad joke there thing. And we just want to thank you for using your platform and your voice for elevating the important issue of young people getting vaccinated. She’s here today to meet with the president and Dr. Fauci later this afternoon. First, I want to say I am beyond honored and humbled to be here today to help spread the message about the importance of youth vaccination. I’m in awe of the work that President Biden and Dr. Fauci have done. And I was happy to help lend my support to this important initiative. It’s important to have conversations with friends and family members encouraging all communities to get vaccinated and actually get to a vaccination site, which you can do more easily than ever before, given how many sites we have and how easy it is to find them at vaccines.gov.
