ROBSTOWN, Texas — UPDATE: Officials announced to the crowd at the Richard Borchard Fairgrounds in Robstown shortly before 7 a.m. that the limits of those in line have already been reached.

Distribution will continue this morning for all those already in line until all supplies are depleted.

More distribution will take place on Saturday morning.

Hundreds began lining up early this morning to get their first dose.

No online pre-registration is required this time around, so the vaccines will be given on a first- come, first- serve basis.

We're told half of the doses will be administered today and the remainder on Saturday.

This is a regional vaccination clinic so you don't have to live in Nueces County to participate.

Keep in mind, these doses are for those in phase 1-a and 1-b, which includes health-care workers, first responders, people 65 or older and people 18 or older with at least one chronic health condition.

Here's a map of the fairgrounds.
