(Minneapolis, MN) -- Doctors are urging Minnesota parents to vaccinate their kids from COVID-19.

Chief of general pediatrics at Children's Minnesota, Dr. Gigi Chawla, says on average they have at least 12 kids hospitalized every day with COVID and at least half of those are in ICU. She added that the best thing you can do is get them vaccinated.

This comes as the vaccine is expected to be approved for children under 12 in the coming weeks.
