In response to the donation Vanderbilt University Medical Center released the statement “We are incredibly grateful to Dolly for believing in our doctors and researchers as we work hard to fight COVID-19.” 

Well, now that fight has paid off…as a vaccine has been produced, and the distribution of it has been rolling out over the last couple of months.

Now nearly a year after her financial pledge, Dolly is getting to benefit from it as she received the vaccine.

Dolly captured the moment she received the Moderna shot from Dr. Naji Abumrad. She even joked about changing the lyrics of her classic “Jolene” to “Vaccine” to fit the occasion.
