Dolly Parton receives Covid-19 Vaccine

As reported in NME Dolly Parton has finally received the COVID-19 vaccine that she helped to fund.

The country music icon, 75, sang one of her most iconic hits with a timely twist as she received the Moderna jab.

To the tune of Jolene, Parton sang: “Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, I’m begging of you, please don’t hesitate. Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, because once you’re dead, then that’s a bit too late.”

Parton was previously praised for helping to fund the Moderna vaccine after she donated $1m (£716,000) to Nashville’s Vanderbilt University medical centre.

Addressing fans before receiving the jab in the video, Parton said: “I’m so excited. I’ve been waiting a while.

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

Dolly Parton is setting a great example to fans across the globe!
