A senior community nurse, Thobeka Ludidi, administered the shot to the centenarian.

She was screened before being given her first shot of the Pfizer vaccine.  She is scheduled to receive the second shot in a few weeks.

The health ministry showed an image of Philiso getting her shot.

Wrapped in a thick blanket as she sat on her couch with her mask on, the elderly woman offered her arm for the injection.

She is one of over a million people who have received the vaccine thus far.

The health ministry is on a drive to vaccinate people over the age 60 against the virus.
