Family Health Systems also encourage Nelson's fellow Texans to follow his lead and sign up for drive-through tests and vaccines.

Nelson's longtime friend Dolly Parton helped fund the Moderna vaccine through a $1 million donation to Vanderbilt Medical Center.
Parton's kindness toward Vanderbilt paved the way for several research papers on the virus plus convalescent plasma studies, which treat people infected with the virus with the plasma of those carrying antibodies against the virus.
"My longtime friend Dr. Naji Abumrad, who's been involved in research at Vanderbilt for many years, informed me that they were making some exciting advancements towards research of the coronavirus for a cure," Parton wrote on social media.
In a follow-up tweet, the country legend wrote that she hopes her generosity towards the Nashville-based hospital "encourages people that can afford it to make donations."
In other Nelson news, he'll be the keynote speaker for this year's edition of SXSW. The Austin-based fest, which got cancelled last March due to the coronavirus pandemic, will return in 2021 as an online-only event.
Nelson's second Frank Sinatra covers album, That's Life, is due out on February 26th.
