Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his wife Ciara will host a vaccination special on NBC with President Joe Biden.

The program, titled "Roll Up Your Sleeves," will encourage people in the United States to receive the COVID-19 vaccinations. Multiple celebrities — including Charles Barkley, Jennifer Lopez, Matthew McConaughey, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Shaquille O'Neal — will appear on the special, which will air Sunday at 7 p.m. ET on NBC.

Former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama will also take part in the special. Dr. Anthony Fauci will be interviewed by McConaughey as part of the event.

Wilson was also critical of former President Donald Trump. Shortly after Trump's election, Wilson said Trump's presidency had been nothing but "negativity." Wilson also said he didn't think Trump would make it four years in office.
