AHS COVID-19 Community Conversation

Dolly Parton comments on getting the COVID-19 Vaccine

"I'm old enough to get it, and I'm smart enough to get it," music legend Dolly Parton said as she received the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine in a video posted to her social media accounts on Tuesday. "I'm dead serious about the vaccine. I think we all want to get back to normal, whatever that is, and that would be a great shot in the arm, wouldn't it?" Parton also used the opportunity to sing to the tune of her hit song "Jolene" about the importance of getting vaccinated: "Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine. I'm begging of you, please don't hesitate."

***

Parton's $1 million donation last year to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where she received the vaccine, helped fund the development of the Moderna vaccine. But the 75-year-old Grammy-winner also said back in early February that she did not want to get vaccinated until more Americans had gotten their shots first. "I don’t want it to look like I’m jumping the line just because I donated money," she told the AP. "I’m very funny about that."

***

Parton's vaccination comes as President Joe Biden announced that there will be enough coronavirus vaccines for all U.S. adults by the end of May — two months earlier than expected. "The prior administration had contracted for not nearly enough vaccine to cover adults in America. We rectified that," he said Tuesday at the White House. Courtesy: @dollyparton on Instagram
