She also told, “But I just felt so proud to have been part of that little seed money that will hopefully grow into something great and help to heal this world.” I’m a very proud girl today to know I had anything at all to do with something that’s going to help us through this crazy pandemic,” she continued. A Vanderbilt spokesperson said Parton’s “generous” gift was helping “several promising research initiatives”. 

Her donation is not only to support covid vaccination but also to support a convalescent plasma study and research involving antibody therapies, Vanderbilt University Medical Center spokesperson John Howser said. Convalescent plasma is used to treat people who are battling a Covid infection. Mr. Howser told “Her gift provided support for a pilot convalescent plasma study that one of our researchers was able to successfully complete. Funds from Dolly’s gift are also supporting very promising research into monoclonal antibodies that act as a temporary vaccine for Covid. Two of these antibodies are now being tested by a global pharmaceutical firm. “Vanderbilt’s plasma pilot showed enough promise for the US NIH (National Institutes of Health) to step in with $34m in additional support to conduct a national, multi-site clinical trial into the benefits of convalescent plasma.

Dolly Parton added that “I just want to say to all of you cowards out there – don’t be such a chicken squat.
