Dolly Parton Donated $1 Million for Moderna's COVID-19 Vaccine Research

The New England Journal of Medicine has confirmed that Dolly Parton partly funded the research for Moderna’s Coronavirus vaccine!

To be more specific, the Dolly Parton COVID-19 Research Fund donated one million dollars to the Vanderbilt Institute for Infection, Immunology, and Inflammation in Nashville, Tennessee to help with the discoveries associated with the research. Dolly made the donation when her friend, Dr Naji Abumrad, apparently told her about the developments they were making.

Moderna’s vaccine has been said to be almost 95% effective in early studies. There is hope that the vaccine could be approved for early use as soon as next month with distribution happening around the world as 2021 continues.

Here’s hoping that the vaccine is distributed ASAP and the world can begin to normalize!
