Singer and country music star Dolly Parton, who helped fund the development of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, altered the words of her 1974 hit track “Jolene” to “vaccine” while waiting to receive her first shot.
“I even changed one of my songs to fit the occasion. It goes, ‘Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, I’m begging of you please don’t hesitate,’” she sang in an Instagram post on Tuesday.
“That didn’t hurt. Just stung a little bit,” she said after receiving the shot.
