Dolly Parton has received the Moderna vaccine that she helped fund.
The singer donated $1 million towards Covid-19 research, Channel24 previously reported. It was later revealed that her contribution, in honour of a close friend, went towards the biotechnology firm Moderna which, shortly after, announced its vaccine is 94.5% effective against the coronavirus.
According to BBC, on Tuesday at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, the country legend received the vaccine, but not before urging others to get it as well.
She adapted her classic Jolene ahead of receiving the jab, singing: "Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, I'm begging of you, please don't hesitate."
