To control the spread of COVID-19, Cameron County Sheriff Eric Garza announced Saturday that inmates of the Cameron county jail system will be vaccinated against the disease.

Garza made the announcement on Twitter, adding that inmates will receive the Moderna vaccine on Monday, April 19. The dosages will be administered by the Cameron County Emergency Management with assistance from the Cameron County Public Health Department.

“At this time, we are the only sheriff’s office in the state that has been granted this opportunity, “Garza stated. “The vaccine will also allow us to cautiously resume in-person visitation for our detainees and their families.”
