Turns Out Dolly Parton Helped Fund The Coronavirus Moderna Vaccine

News hit the web this week that a vaccine for the Coronavirus has been formulated and it's 95% effective in combating the possibly deadly pathogen. Turns out we partly have Dolly Parton to thank for this discovery!

Scientists at Vanderbilt University in Nashville have procured the Moderna vaccine and fans did some fact-checking; turns out the "Jolene" icon forked over $1 Million to help fund the research that resulted in said vaccine.

Fans of the country star rejoiced online:

We checked to see if her granddaughter, Miley Cyrus, had anything to say about this great news but she's a little tied up promoting her new single with Dualists Lipa which will be released tomorrow!
