It’s not sarcasm, it’s truth. Last year, Parton donateda million dollarsto Vanderbilt University Medical Center, who was working to develop the Moderna vaccine.
Tuesday, the singer, actress and philanthropist, returned to Vanderbilt University Medical Center to receive her first Moderna vaccine shot.
In a video shared on her Twitter account, Parton had a message for her followers, encouraging them to get a vaccine when they are eligible.
She even adapted her hit song “Jolene” for the occasion, singing “Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, I’m begging of ya please don’t hesitate.”
