Hillary Clinton plans to release more of her medical information this week, spokesman Brian Fallon said Monday, as questions are raised about her health following a pneumonia diagnosis.

In an interview on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Brian Fallon was asked if the campaign will allow Clinton’s physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack, to speak to reporters.

“It is our intention that in the next couple days we’re gonna be releasing additional medical information about Hillary Clinton,” Fallon said, while dodging the question of whether Bardack would speak to the press.

Fallon said the campaign released Clinton’s comprehensive medical history more than a year ago.

“But we’re gonna go beyond that and in the next few days we’ve been in touch with her physician this morning to get those materials together. We’re gonna be releasing that to, to further put to rest any concerns about what you saw yesterday,” Fallon said, referring to Clinton’s decision to leave the 9/11 memorial event early because she felt ill and Clinton was seen stumbling into a van.

After Clinton disappeared, the campaign said she felt overheated during the event and went to Chelsea’s apartment in Manhattan. She emerged a little while later and said she was feeling much better. The campaign revealed later in the afternoon that Dr. Bardack had diagnosed Clinton on Friday with pneumonia and was prescribed antibiotics.

Fallon said Clinton has “no other undisclosed condition” and said “there is nothing here in terms of anything that was caused by what happened in 2012.” That year, she sustained a concussion after fainting. She was later admitted to a hospital with a blood clot, which she was treated for.

On Monday morning, Trump said that he plans to release “very, very specific numbers” from a physical he had done last week. Late last month, Trump challenged Clinton to release more detailed medical records, saying he would also do the same.
