DHR Health in Edinburg hosted the largest COVID-19 vaccination clinic in the Valley on Tuesday.

Thousands of people from across the Rio Grande Valley lined up at H-EB park, in hopes of being among the 6,500 people to receive a wristband granting access to the clinic.

Rosalio and Julie Rosales left their home in Brownsville early Monday morning to secure a spot in line. 

The couple, eager to be vaccinated, hope the vaccine is a step closer to normal life.

"It's been hard especially with the grandkids,” Rosalio Rosales said. “We can't see them you know, we see them from afar."
