An hour-long special aimed at raising awareness and encouraging the American public to get vaccinated to end the COVID-19 pandemic will air on Sunday, April 18 at 7 p.m. ET. Walgreens announced that NBC will televise a vaccination special called Roll Up Your Sleeves. According to details, former first lady Michelle Obama, Lin-Manuel Miranda—and a few additional friends—will appear on the special to educate and empower audiences to make the important decision of getting vaccinated, to help put the pandemic behind us.
Audiences can expect to see comedy acts, view informative packages, hear captivating real-life stories, and observe heartwarming surprises. Walgreens is a presenting sponsor of Roll Up Your Sleeves.
“Bringing together trusted voices, including celebrities, community leaders, and our pharmacists, we can help answer questions and dispel myths surrounding vaccinations and ensure that the U.S. emerges from this very challenging time as quickly as possible,” said Roz Brewer, CEO of Walgreens Boots Alliance.
