Push To Get Young Vaccinated As COVID-19 Cases Surge Nationwide

48 states and Washington, D.C. are reporting a spike in COVID-19 cases, with data from Johns Hopkins University showing the biggest increases among younger people.

NYC Health Commissioner Dr. David Chokshi said, “The spread of the Delta variant means that it is perhaps the most dangerous time to be unvaccinated.”

Disney star and singer Olivia Rodrigo met with President Biden on Wednesday to help encourage getting the shot as youth vaccination rates continue to lag significantly in the U.S.

Can someone like Rodrigo or other celebrities really help spur people to get vaccinated?
