In the interview, which will air Monday, Biden and Fauci will discuss the latest efforts to fight against COVID-19 and discuss the “widening scope of vaccination efforts in the U.S.,” according to a Thursday press release from the show.

The duo will join hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest, who are both listed as participants in the Department of Health and Human Services’ “We Can Do This: Live” series, which aims to connect medical experts with prominent influencers and organizations that have large social media followings to help deliver necessary information to people to help them "feel confident about receiving the vaccine."


Last month, Jill Biden hailed Fauci as an “American hero,” as the two toured a local children’s vaccination clinic to spotlight COVID-19 inoculations for young Americans.

That event was the second time the first lady and Fauci had joined forces on a coronavirus event since the start of the administration.

Monday's interview comes as the Biden administration ramps up its efforts to vaccinate the remainder of eligible Americans.

Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that half of all U.S. adults are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

White House senior COVID-19 adviser Andy Slavitt called the feat “a major milestone in our country’s vaccination effort.”
