Pop star and actress Olivia Rodrigo is set to visit the White House on Wednesday as part of the Biden administration’s effort to increase vaccinations among young people.
“Tomorrow, Olivia Rodrigo will come to the White House to meet with the President and Dr. Fauci and record videos about the importance of young people getting vaccinated,” a White House official told Forbes reporter Andrew Solender.
The official said the videos would be featured on Rodrigo’s social media channels and those of the White House, Solender reported. Rodrigo has 14.3 million Instagram followers and six million subscribers on YouTube as of Tuesday.
The White House did not immediately return Insider’s request for comment.
Rodrigo, who stars on Disney’s “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” and released her debut album “Sour” earlier this year, appeared to confirm she’d visit Washington in a comment on Biden’s official Instagram account.
In an Instagram Post on the @POTUS account, Biden shared a throwback photo of himself, writing: “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?”
“i’m in! see you tomorrow at the white house,” Rodrigo responded.
According to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 48% of the total US population has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Fauci recently joined a number of prominent TikTok personalities as part of the effort to encourage young people to get vaccinated, as CNN reported.
