Ciara is teaming up with first lady Jill Biden to promote COVID-19 vaccinations for young children.

The “Body Party” singer is heading to the White House on Wednesday along with her three kids — who are all under 7 — to urge Americans to get those aged 5 to 11 vaccinated, a White House official confirmed to ITK. People magazine was first to report about Ciara’s visit.

The 36-year-old former model, who’s married to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, and her brood are poised to meet with the first lady, along with pediatrician Hina Talib, while at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Last month, the Food and Drug Administration authorized Pfizer-BioNTech’s coronavirus vaccine for emergency use in children ages 5 to 11.

Biden launched a nationwide effort earlier this month to promote vaccinations among the 5 to 11 age group.
