Labour ward sister Zoliswa Gidi-Dyosi became the first healthcare worker in South Africa to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

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.

Speaking to Clement Manyathela, Gidi-Dyosi says she became scared when she saw the cameras and presenters waiting for her to receive the jab.

I am super proud of myself. By taking that decision as a volunteer I am so happy and proud. I am on the moon.

Zoliswa Gidi-Dyosi, Labour ward sister

When I saw myself trending on the news, I was so shocked. I didn't know it was going to be a big thing.
