‘Vaccine, vaccine’: Dolly sings ‘Jolene’ rewrite before shot
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Dolly Parton rewrote the lyrics to “Jolene” as “Vaccine, vaccine,” as she got her COVID-19 shot.
The Grammy-winning singer, actor and humanitarian posted a video on Tuesday of her singing just before getting her vaccine.
Parton donated $1 million to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, for coronavirus research.
The 75-year-old put on a typical show in the video, laughing and cracking jokes and making sure her hair was looking good.
She wore a purple shirt with shoulder cutouts just for the occasion and then smiled at the camera, proclaiming, “I did it!”
