Dolly Parton Jabbed With The COVID Vaccine She Helped Fund

Dolly Parton has received a dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine — the one she helped fund.

She shared the news to Twitter, writing, “Dolly gets a dose of her own medicine.”

“Well hey! It’s me! I’m so excited. I’ve been waiting a while,” Parton told fans in a video Nashville’s Vanderbilt University posted to Twitter.

“I’m old enough to get it, and I’m smart enough to get it.”

She also parodies her song ‘Jolene’.

“Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaciiiiine,” she sings in the video.

“I’m begging of you, please don’t hesitate. Because once you’re dead that’s a bit too late.”

Parton goes on to urge everybody to get the vaccine as soon as they can.

Last year Dolly Parton donated $1 million USD to Moderna COVID-19 vaccine research.
