Count Dolly Parton among the millions of Americans who have now received the COVID-19 vaccine.

On Tuesday, the Country music legend tweeted out a video of her getting a dose of the Moderna vaccine.

Before getting the shot, she encouraged others to also be vaccinated and even remixed her 1974 hit song “Jolene” with some vaccination encouragement lyrics.

‘Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine. I’m begging of you please don’t hesitate. Cause once you’re dead, that’s a bit too late,” sang Parton.

In fact, the 75-year-old helped fund the research that led to the Moderna vaccine with a $1 million donation to Vanderbilt University back in April 2020.
