HHS Secretary Alex Azar was admitted to a hospital after suffering "a minor infection" and treated with intravenous antibiotics, the agency told reporters Sunday night

HHS said Azar was admitted "out of an abundance of caution" to undergo observation.

"The Secretary is being treated for a minor infection," HHS spokesperson Caitlin Oakley said in response to questions from POLITICO about the nature of Azar’s condition and where he was hospitalized. "We cannot disclose the hospital location due to privacy and security concerns."
