Renowned US singer-songwriter Dolly Parton has received her first Covid-19 vaccine shot.

The country music star received the jab on Tuesday at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville.

She recorded the whole procedure and later posted it on her Twitter account.

The four-minute clip shows Parton sitting in a chair at the facility. She begins by sharing updated lyrics to her hit song “Jolene” to match the occasion.

Parton said she wants everyone to get their shot, even if they are afraid. “I just wanted to encourage everybody because the sooner we get to feeling better the sooner we get back to normal,” she said.

The doctor is then called over and went through the whole process of the vaccination.

After taking the shot, Dolly Parton said, “I did it! I did it!”
