Former President Bill Clinton tested positive for COVID-19, he announced on his Twitter account Wednesday.

Clinton, 76, added that he is only experiencing mild symptoms. He used his announcement to encourage everyone to get vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19.

“I’ve tested positive for Covid. I’ve had mild symptoms, but I’m doing fine overall and keeping myself busy at home,” the former president wrote. “I’m grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, which has kept my case mild, and I urge everyone to do the same, especially as we move into the winter months.”

His announcement is very similar to those of other leading Democrats, who credit their mild symptoms to being vaccinated and having the latest boosters.

“I just tested positive for COVID. I’ve had a scratchy throat for a couple days, but am feeling fine otherwise. Michelle and I are grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, and she has tested negative,” former Democratic President Barack Obama said in March. “It’s a reminder to get vaccinated if you haven’t already, even as cases go down.”

Clinton has been a major proponent of the COVID-19 vaccine, appearing in a public service announcement with former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Jimmy Carter to encourage others to get the vaccine.

“I wanna go back to work and I wanna be able to move around,” Clinton said in the PSA. “We’ve lost enough people, and we’ve suffered enough damage.”
