She went on social media on Tuesday to announce that she had received the vaccine. She wrote on Instagram, ‘’Dolly gets a dose of her own medicine.’’
‘’I’m finally gonna get my vaccine. I’m so excited. I’m old enough to get it, I’m smart enough to get it, so I’m very happy,’’ the country music icon said in a video on Instagram.
As a matter of fact, her joy of getting vaccinated became too much that she let some of it out through remaking her hit song ‘Jolene’. She, however, changed the lyrics to,
‘’vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine/ because once you’re dead/then that’s a bit too late.’’
She further said that she intended to be funny at that moment, but she was dead serious about getting vaccinated. She recorded herself receiving the first dose from Naji Abumrad, a professor of surgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
At a point, Dolly Parton even poked fun at the surgeon, telling him, ‘’It didn’t take this long to film 9 to 5.’’
About the funding, the singer announced in April 2020 that she donated $1 million to Covid-19 research at the same medical center. Her contribution helped fund the study and development of Moderna.
