How can vinyl flooring that's glued to 1/2" MDF be removed to lay LPV?

I will be removing carpeting & vinyl to lay 8mm Luxury Plank Vinyl. The vinyl is glued to 1/2" Medium Density Fiber Board in the kitchen. I will be adding MDF through the rest of the house to match the height, but will need to remove the existing vinyl. I pulled up a small section, but the glue remained. How's the best way to remove the glue?
