(Bismarck, ND) -- North Dakota officials are racing to get young adults vaccinated against COVID as hospitalizations in this age group are on the rise.  

The state's health department says almost three-and-a-half percent of people with COVID between the ages of 20-to-29-years-old had to be hospitalized.  

Officials are hoping more people get the vaccine as the Delta variant continues to spread.  

That strain has been detected in North Dakota.
