JOHANNESBURG - The first person to contract COVID-19 in Gauteng has watched her doctor receive his first dose of the vaccine.

The province has opened an additional vaccination site at the Charlotte Maxeke hospital, which is where the patient was admitted last year.

Glynn Mitchell was admitted to Charlotte Maxeke hospital in Johannesburg on 7 March 2020.

Specialist physician Dr Jarrod Zamporini was the one who cared for her and now, he's received his first dose of the COVID-19 inoculation.

For Dr Zamparini, the vaccine provides hope in the fight against COVID-19.
