Parton’s name appears in the preliminary report on the vaccine among sponsors like the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which Dr. Anthony Fauci heads, and Emory University. The Moderna vaccine is 94.5% effective against coronavirus, according to early data released this week by the company. Tap the link in our bio to learn more about Parton’s contribution.⁠
