Dolly Parton has gotten the COVID vaccine and she’s cracking epic jokes. The legendary country star, 75, is now fully vaccinated against the novel coronavirus with her second jab under her belt, and the “9 to 5” hit-maker hasn’t just been receiving. Dolly has donated $1 million to help fund the Moderna vaccine she herself received, with photos of the famous blonde getting vaccinated shared to her Instagram. Posting for her 4.1 million followers yesterday, the iconic music face was all smiles behind her mask – check it out below.
Scroll for the photos. They showed Parton confidently posing with three others in an opening shot. An named doctor in a white coat and two females were with the star, with Dolly looking her usual sensational self, wearing a tight mustard-yellow cardigan, pattern top underneath, plus red fingerless gloves, big bouffant hair, and a face mask. Despite the mask, Dolly was clearly smiling.
A quick swipe to the right brought more action as Dolly was seen seated and actually getting the vaccine.
The photos, which have now snagged Dolly over 250,000 likes, came captioned with both thanks and humor, plus the star thanking the doctor in her photo. Dr. Naji Abumrad is now Instagram-famous, thanks to the Grand Ole Opry singer.
“Dolly gets a (second) dose of her own medicine.
Thank you Dr. Naji Abumrad, @andrearae80 and @heatherbrooke613 of @vanderbilthealth ❤️,” the bombshell wrote.
“Custom vaccine sleeve cutout SLAY,” the top reply reads, with Dolly also told: “You dropped this.” Scroll for more photos.
In November 2020, Dolly made headlines for donating $1 million to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, one of the trial sites for the Moderna vaccine. Dolly said:
“I’m sure many millions of dollars from many people went into that,” adding: “But I just felt so proud to have been part of that little seed money that will hopefully grow into something great and help to heal this world.”
Dolly received her first dose last month as she joked: “Dolly gets a dose of her own medicine.” Scroll for more photos.
Parton had proudly announced: “I am making a donation of $1 million to Vanderbilt towards that research and to encourage people that can afford it to make donations.”
Vanderbilt’s president and CEO called her “amazing generosity is a source of inspiration”.
He added: “She cares so much about helping others and we are very grateful for her ongoing support. These funds will help us complete promising research that can benefit millions in their battle with the virus.”
