Labour ward sister Zoliswa Gidi-Dyosi says she is happy to have taken the Covid-19 vaccine.

She became the first healthcare worker in South Africa to be vaccinated against Covid-19 using the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The inoculation took place at Khayelitsha District Hospital in the Western Cape on Wednesday.

I am so proud of myself; I am very happy. I didn't know it was going to be like this; I didn't know it was going to trend like this.

I just received a call from my Manager and asked if I wanted to volunteer to receive the vaccine.

It didn't burn and didn't itch - I just had an irritation on my skin.

It has been a scary time for our healthcare workers because they've been so exposed to COVID-19.

I am so relieved and I"ve been praying for this since last year. I had some bad experiences due to COVID-19, so I just asked for God to help us.

I just had the injection and then it's done. I'm not sure if I will need to get another dose yet - probably after 6 months.

Shortly after becoming the first South African to receive the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine, Sister Gidi-Dyosi helped deliver a healthy baby boy at the Khayelitsha District Hospital.
