Country legend Dolly Parton donated $ 1 million to vaccination research in April. The moderna vaccine was co-financed with the money.
With the US pharmaceutical company Moderna, another manufacturer has received data for a highly effective one in the past few days Corona vaccine submitted. The federal government has already secured 4.5 million vaccine doses, and the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) assumes that the first vaccinations can also be carried out in Switzerland in the first half of 2021.
Nobody less than country legend Dolly Parton (“Jolene”, “9 To 5”) is involved in the financing of the vaccine. With an amount of one million dollars donated by the 74-year-old to Vanderbilt University Hospital Vaccination Research on April 1, the successful research of the new vaccine co-financed.
“When I donated the money to the Covid Fund, I just wanted to do something good, and apparently I made it!” Dolly Parton wrote in her latest tweet.
On April 1st, Parton posted on Instagram that she was reading the Covid-19 research “of my long-time friend Dr. Naji Abumrad »at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. She called on others “who can afford it” to do the same.
Fans have since started an online campaign to name the vaccine after Dolly. Meena Harris (36), niece of the soon-to-be US Vice President Kamala Harris (56), is also a Dolly fan.
