Eunice Fick, a Bellville resident, celebrated her 102nd birthday by getting the COVID-19 vaccine on Wednesday, May 26.  She told Die Burger that although she was a little nervous at first, she feels good after getting vaccinated. 

 Fick has two daughters, seven grandchildren and sixteen great-grandchildren. She lives alone in a flat behind the Eureka retirement centre, and is visited by family often. 

She is originally from Oudtshoon but has been living in Cape Town for 26 years now. One of her daughters said she is still completely independent, and does “everything for herself”.
