Ciara and her three children met with first lady Jill Biden Wednesday at the White House to promote vaccinations for kids 5 to 11 years old. Last month, the FDA authorized the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use in children in that age range.
“@Flotus, thank you for welcoming my family and I to The @WhiteHouse,” the Grammy winner captioned an Instagram photo with Biden. “It was such an honor to join you to talk about vaccinating our youth. Let’s end this pandemic together. #LevelUp”
Ciara’s oldest child, son Future Zahir, 7, received the vaccine three days ago.
“He walked in excited — a little nervous, but he was excited — because a lot of his classmates had already gotten vaccinated, so it was really cool to be on that journey with him,” the “Level Up” singer said. “Being a mom and seeing it through his eyes was amazing as well.”
Ciara was also joined by son Win Harrison, 1, and daughter Sienna Princess, 4. Win adorably crawled on The White House carpet behind his mother as she spoke to reporters.
Ciara smiled and glanced at him and continued speaking. “I think the ultimate goal is to end this thing and for us all to feel a bit more safe and have an added layer of protection.”
