Pop star Olivia Rodrigo pushes Biden's youth vaccination drive
"It's important to have conversations with friends and family members, encouraging all communities to get vaccinated," she said. This can be done "more easily than ever before, given how many sites we have and how easy it is to find them."
Rodrigo "offered to come" to the White House, Psaki said, to deliver a message to fans that "getting vaccinated is a way to keep yourself safe, a way to ensure you can see your friends, a way you can go to concerts."
After a strong period of vaccination drives across the United States the pace has slacked off, with young people among the main groups failing to get their shots.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 48 percent of the US population has been fully vaccinated and 55.5 percent have received at least one dose.
