Olivia Rodrigo joins Biden vaccine push to make young people 'happy and healthy'


Pop star Olivia Rodrigo sings on her debut album that she cannot parallel park, but the singer was at the White House on Wednesday for a different kind of drive — partnering with the White House to get more young people vaccinated against Covid-19.

The "good 4 u" singer briefly addressed the media at Wednesday afternoon's press briefing, part of a White House visit where she is scheduled to meet with the nation's top infectious disease expert, Anthony Fauci, and President Joe Biden.

“I’m in awe of the work President Biden and Dr. Fauci have done and was happy to lend my support to this important initiative,” Rodrigo said, directing viewers to the federal government’s vaccine website, vaccines.gov.

Rodrigo's plan to visit the White House went public on Tuesday via Instagram, when the singer commented that she was excited to see the White House on a photo of the president as a young man. Biden, Rodrigo and Fauci are expected to produce videos to be posted to Rodrigo's and Biden administration social media accounts promoting vaccination among young people.
