President Biden told Americans to get vaccinated against COVID-19 in an Easter message on Sunday.

Appearing in a pre-recorded video with First Lady Jill Biden, the 46th president urged Americans to go out and get their shots.

“The virus has not gone, and so many of us still feel the longing and loneliness of distance,” Biden said.

“We share the sentiments of Pope Francis, who said that getting vaccinated in a moral obligation — one that can save your life and the lives of others,” said the first Catholic president since JFK.

“By getting vaccinated and encouraging your congregations and your communities to vaccinate, we not only can beat this virus — we can also haste the day we can celebrate the holidays together again.”

“We wish you health, hope, joy and the peace of God, which passes all understanding,” the First Lady added.

The CDC says more than 100 million Americans have already received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, or about 32 percent of the country’s adult population.

Among seniors, the vaccination rate is even higher — with 41 million people over 65 have received at least one shot, a whopping 75 percent of the total senior population.
