Dolly Parton donated $1 million to fund the vaccine, and she waited for her turn to receive it.

The country singer helped with her money in modern laboratory research and after receiving the first dose she encouraged her to put it by retranslating one of her songs.


Dolly Parton has already received the first dose of her own medicine. The 75-year-old American singer was vaccinated against COVID-19 on Tuesday with the drug from Moderna, a laboratory where the artist donated $1 million last year to vaccine research and development. Despite being one of the first to help with her own money to look for a covid-19 vaccine, the star has waited for her turn to receive it. The moment of her inoculation was transformed into a social media event after she posted a video on Twitter while receiving the drug live. "I'm very excited, I've waited so long. So I'm very happy to get my fixes from Moderna today and I want to tell everyone that they should too. "I changed one of my songs on this occasion," Barton said of Nashville Medical Center before I started singing a new version of his famous song Jolene.

"Get vaccinated, I beg you, don't hesitate. Get vaccinated, because once you die a little late," the Tennessee translator sings, explaining to her followers the need for vaccination to get back to normal as soon as possible." I may sound funny, but I'm very serious about the vaccine. We all want to return to normal, wherever he goes." I want to encourage everyone that the better we feel the sooner we get back to normal. So I want to say to all the cowards out there: Don't be chicken! Go out and get your fix," insists the artist.

Last November, it was learned that the American singer appeared in the initial report of the Moderna vaccine as one of the main investors in scientific research, along with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and Emory University. He donated $1 million through Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, under the name "Dolly Parton COVID-19 Research Fund," which eventually went to the development of the new vaccine.

It became known that the money arrived at Moderna Laboratories in April, after her boyfriend Naji Abumurad, a doctor at vanderbilt Institute for Infection, Immunology and Infections at Vanderbilt University in Tennessee, told her that they were investigating "some dramatic developments. in research to treat the virus. Abumurad and Barton became friends in 2014 after the singer suffered a car accident and was treated in Vanderbilt. "I'm sure that many, many millions of dollars from many people went to this [research fund], but I was very proud to be a part of this little initial money that we hope will turn into something wonderful and help heal this world. Barton said a few months ago on the one show on the BBC.

The donation of the country music icon also supported Vanderbilt's study on convalescent plasma, the treatment of plasma-carrying antiviral supphea, as well as the development of several research articles on viruses.
