Country music legend, Dolly Parton, made a joke about receiving Covid-19 vaccination shots on Tuesday. This took place at Vanderbilt Health at Tennessee state. The 75-year-old superstar posted an image of her getting the vaccine shot. In the caption, she made a joke about her getting “a dose” of Dolly’s own medicine. She has been one of the entertainment industry’s leading fighters of the COVID-19.
Back in 2020, she had announced her donation to Vanderbilt University. Her amount, 1 million dollars, would go to needs for inventing a cure for the coronavirus. She then followed the post with a video where she spoke about the vaccine. She urged her fans and followers to go and get a shot of it if any of them were eligible. She then went on to say that she was “smart” and “old enough” to have her shot. The musician and singer, famous for her hit song “Jolene,” also made reference to the lyrics for this occasion.
Dolly Parton Plays With Her Own Song Lyrics
Dolly Parton is one of the world’s best-selling musicians of all time. Among her hits— especially on the Country Songs chart, are “Jolene” and “I Will Always Love You.” The latter was made a global smash by Whitney Houston. But the former ballad was used by the singer to urge her fans to get the vaccine shot. She sang “Vaccine” instead of repeating the words “Jolene” and continued by singing, “I’m begging you, please don’t hesitate.”
She then encourages her followers to go “out there” & “get your shot.” She then followed it by getting her shot. And then said that it doesn’t hurt.
Back in November, Dolly Parton spoke to NBC about the donation, saying she simply wanted “to do good.”
