Olivia Rodrigo is inspiring young people in the United States to get “happy and healthy.”

On Wednesday, the musical sensation paid a visit to the White House to encourage youth vaccinations. In a press conference, Olivia Rodrigo said, “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 President Biden and Dr. Fauci have done and 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,” she added.

Rodrigo is scheduled to meet with President Biden and Dr. Anthony Fauci after delivering her remarks at the press conference.

As per a White House official, The ‘Deja Vu’ singer will “record videos about the importance of young people getting vaccinated, including answering important questions young people have about getting vaccinated,” as an effort to encourage American youth to get vaccinated. Rodrigo’s and the White House’s social media accounts will both post the videos.

President Biden shared an Instagram picture of himself when he was younger on Tuesday, captioning it, “I know this young person would’ve gotten vaccinated, but we’ve got to get other young people protected as well. Who’s willing to help?”

Rodrigo expressed her excitement to help in the comments, saying, “i’m in! see you tomorrow at the white house!”

Olivia Rodrigo’s first album Sour was released in May, but her singles are still topping the charts, with ‘Good 4 U’ at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and ‘Deja Vu’ at No. 10. Her single ‘Driver’s License’ lasted eight weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100.
