The former first lady tweeted: ‘Well, I’ve tested positive for COVID. I’ve got some mild cold symptoms but am feeling fine.
‘I’m more grateful than ever for the protection vaccines can provide against serious illness. Please get vaccinated and boosted if you haven’t already!’
Her husband, Bill Clinton, has tested negative for the virus and ‘is feeling fine,’ Hillary added.
The former president is quarantining and may be taking extra precautions after his recent hospital stay.

The 75-year-old spent five nights at the University of California Irvine Medical Center in Orange, receiving treatment for a urological infection in October.
Meanwhile, Hillary has had several health scares of her own over the years.
In February 2016, she was seen being supported by security on both sides after she slipped while walking up a flight of stairs in South Carolina.
Clinton has had several slips and falls in the past including when she tripped while getting on a plane in 2012, when she fractured her elbow after slipping over in the White House in 2009, and when she was treated for blood clots in 2012 and 2013.
Under increasing pressure to reassure supporters ahead of her presidential run in 2016, she released her medical history in 2015.
Doctor Lisa Bardack, from New York, detailed the candidate’s health history, including previous treatments for concussion, complete family history of heart disease, an analysis of blood clots, and a thyroid gland examination, according to the New York Post.
Her husband has also had his share of medical issues.
An aide to the former president said last October, that Bill’s urological infection spread to his bloodstream, but he never went into septic shock, a potentially life-threatening condition.
The aide, who spoke to reporters at the hospital on the condition his name wasn’t used, said Clinton was in an intensive care section of the hospital but wasn’t receiving ICU care.
Clinton, who had a quadruple heart bypass in 2004, was in Southern California for a ‘series of events’ when he fell ill, CBS medical contributor Dr David Agus said.
‘At the first event he started to feel light headed, nausea, vomiting and was brought to a hospital,’ doctors told him.
‘At that hospital he was found to have an infection in his blood and they did a CAT scan, looked over his body and even his brain. And the infection source was found to be the urine.
