Bernie Sanders received treatment at a walk-in clinic Friday for a minor injury while campaigning in South Carolina, his presidential campaign says.

The Vermont senator cut his head on the edge of a glass shower door and received a half-dozen stitches. But the 2020 candidate was given a “clean bill of health,” his campaign announced.

Sanders, 77, is continuing with all scheduled campaign events.

He attended a health care panel with a bandage on his head at the International Longshoremen’s Association Local 1422 union hall in Charleston. Prior to that, Sanders also attended a breakfast meeting with approximately 20 local clergy members, the campaign said.


Sanders announced his White House bid last month, entering a crowded 2020 race. The senator ran against and ultimately lost to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.

Other Democratic senators already in the 2020 presidential race include Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris.
