Per The Guardian and confirmed by The New England Journal of Medicine, the Dolly Parton COVID-19 Research Fund contributed a massive $1 million to the Vanderbilt Institute for Infection, Immunology, and Inflammation in Nashville, Tennessee. Parton befriended one of the institutes medical professionals years ago while seeking treatment after an automobile accident, and initiated her donation earlier this year after being informed “some exciting developments” were being made with vaccines.
