Dolly Parton tells AP she’s waiting to get her vaccination


AP Entertainment reporter Mesfin Fekadu scored an exclusive interview with Dolly Parton who announced her new Super Bowl commercial.

During the interview, he asked if she had gotten her Covid-19 vaccine, and Parton, who donated $1 million to coronavirus research, said she was waiting to get her vaccination shot because she didn’t want to seem like she was “jumping the line,” a story that was picked up by the “Today” show, WebMD, People magazine, Yahoo! and many more.
