ABC News’ Kate Snow Reports: Governor Sarah Palin’s campaign plans to release information regarding her medical history early this week, according to campaign spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt.

Schmitt told ABC News by email on Sunday that she was not sure what day the records would be released but it would be "early this week".

"We are working on this and it will happen sooner than later," Schmitt said.

Last week, Governor Palin said she would be "fine" with releasing medical information.

She is the only one of the presidential or vice presidential candidates who has not released any health information about herself.

Palin did suggest that releasing her records could be fodder for political attacks of some kind.

"So be it, if that will allow some curiousity seekers, perhaps, to have one more thing that they can either check the box off that they can find something to criticize, perhaps, or find something to rest them assured over. Fine. I’m healthy, I’m happy, had five kids. That is going to be in the medical records. Never been seriously ill or hurt. You will see that in the medical records if they’re released," Palin told NBC’s Brian Williams.
