Former President Barack Obama is returning to the public limelight to give the Biden administration a much-needed booster.
NBC will air the hour-long vaccination special, “Roll Up Your Sleeves,” on Sunday, April 18 at 7 p.m. with the aim of educating viewers, raising awareness, and dispelling concerns surrounding the COVID-19 vaccines, all with the goal of increasing vaccination rates to put an end to the pandemic.
President Joseph R. Biden will appear during the hour to speak directly to the American public at this historic time about the importance of getting the COVID-19 vaccine when available to beat the pandemic, protect loved ones and continue the road to recovery.
Former President Barack Obama will also appear alongside NBA legends Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal to remind audiences that getting the COVID-19 vaccine is a crucial step for Americans to return to the activities they love. As previously announced, former First Lady Michelle Obama will be featured in the special alongside friends Faith Hill, Jennifer Lopez, and Lin-Manuel Miranda.
