Coronavirus Information Report

Dolly Parton - "Jolene"

Dolly Parton revealed last month that she hadn’t gotten her COVID vaccine yet – even though she is eligible because of her age. Of course, there’s also that $1-million donation to Nashville’s Vanderbilt hospital to help develop the Moderna vaccine. Well, that’s all changed.

Dolly has posted a video of her getting the jab on Instagram, which she captioned “Dolly gets a dose of her own medicine.” Dolly shares in the clip that she’s very happy to be getting her Moderna shot, and then reworked her classic “Jolene” to urge everyone to get their vaccine when they are eligible.

“Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, I’m begging of you please don’t hesitate,” she sings, “vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, ‘cause once you’re dead that’s a bit too late.”
