The kidneys play an important role in your body. They help with things like filtering your blood and making red blood cells.
With COVID-19 continuing to spread, the virus can put them at risk.

"Most of the time when they get the COVID, and they have chronic conditions, they end up in the hospital and their respiratory issues are really getting worse, that’s when the kidneys get involved," said Savag Demirjian, MD, a kidney specialist.

The doctor goes on to say this can be avoided by getting vaccinated.
