Health secretary Matt Hancock told the House of Commons today that the British territory reached the milestone yesterday.
He said: “I am delighted to be able to tell the house that yesterday, Gibraltar became the first nation in the world to complete its entire adult vaccination programme.
“I want to pay tribute to all Gibraltarians for their fortitude during this crisis and the kind words of first minister Fabian Picardo, who said yesterday ‘the United Kingdom has played a blinder on vaccinations and we are among the beneficiaries in the British family of nations’.
Gibraltar, which has a population of around 34,000 people, has had 4,263 confirmed coronavirus cases since the start of the pandemic, according to the World Health Organisation.
