Bleakney remarked, “This was such a great service.  A flu outbreak in jail is a nightmare for us, especially with our crowded conditions. We appreciate the donated vaccines along with other supplies that help us serve this population.” Ramstetter commented, “Everyone was cooperative and thankful for this service.  We have a very good relationship with the leadership at the Alamosa jail.”
