Dolly's shot was administrated at Vanderbilt Health by her friend Dr. Abumrad, and during the process she taped an encouraging PSA she clearly hopes will appeal to people who might be wary of getting their own shots. “I'm old enough to get it and I'm smart enough to get it,” Parton said.

Back in November, we found out that a $1 million donation from Dolly Parton towards Covid-19 research ended up funding the research that led to the Moderna vaccine.
