Commander’s comments: “Sergeant Watson is a dedicated allergy and immunizations technician,” said Col.

She supervises more than 100 immunotherapy patients and manages over 1,200 appointments. Her efforts were key to her clinic achieving 128 percent of its business plan and beating Air Force access metrics by 3 percent. She is a first responder in life-threatening anaphylactic reactions and oversees allergy tech training at four other bases. She also oversees the smallpox and anthrax vaccination programs with zero discrepancies. The impact of her actions is felt throughout the wing. She is one of our future Air Force leaders.”
