The White House will kick off its newest COVID-19 vaccine push by employing the social media appeal and services of top teen artist and singer Olivia Rodrigo.
Just last week, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tried to reassure the public that those appointed by the administration to lead the administration’s new charge for more vaccinations and even knock on doors would be trusted leaders and people rooted in the community.
“These are grassroots voices across the country. They are not members of the government. They are not federal government employees. They are volunteers. They are clergy. They are trusted voices in community that are playing this role and door-knocking,” Psaki said.
Later, she reiterated that it is “local doctors, clergy, and civic leaders” who would be the prime envoys for the pro-vaccine messaging.
“It's local doctors, clergy, civic leaders” who are most important in campaigning for their communities to get vaccinated, according to data, says @PressSec Jen Psaki. “When your friend across the street gets the vaccine, you're much more likely to get it” https://t.co/juc0I4k1ri pic.twitter.com/laoXecktOD

Instead of kicking off the campaign with these community-driven leaders, however, the administration opted to name Rodrigo, an angsty teen on the verge of caving to a leftist Hollywood mob and its agenda, as one of their main COVID-19 vaccine ambassadors tasked with appealing to American youth.
The 18-year-old Disney Channel star turned Gen Z music sensation is scheduled to meet with the Democrat president and COVID-19 grifter Dr. Anthony Fauci on Wednesday as part of the Biden administration’s efforts to promote more nationwide inoculation. In addition to creating video content meant to push young people to get the emergency authorized shot, which has the potential to yield harmful side effects in juveniles, Rodrigo and the administration will also be “answering important questions young people have about getting vaccinated.”
Olivia Rodrigo will come to the White House tomorrow to meet with the President and Dr. Fauci and record videos about the importance of young people getting vaccinated against Covid-19, according to a White House official.

Rodrigo expressed excitement about the meeting on Instagram under a post from President Joe Biden’s official POTUS account.
“I’m in!” she commented from her verified Instagram page. “[S]ee you tomorrow at the white house!”
“You bet!” the president’s account replied.
