One with Harris and Rodrigo bursting into laughter and another with them posing side by side with the caption: "[email protected]_Rodrigo and I agree, vaccines—they’re ‘good 4 u.’"

Olivia Rodrigo in awe of Biden and Fauci's work
While in the White House, Rodrigo delivered an enthusiastic speech during the White House daily briefing. "I am beyond honored and humbled to be here today to help spread the message about the importance of youth vaccination," Rodrigo said.
Rodrigo continued: "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 vaccines.gov."
