President Biden traveled to Walter Reed Medical Center Friday for a routine physical, one day before he turns 79.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced the appointment Friday morning; it was not on the schedule that was released Thursday.
Biden arrived at 8:51 a.m. ET and waved to reporters who were traveling with him.
A Fox News Poll released Thursday showed that 53% of registered voters believe Biden’s age is interfering with his job.

When Psaki was asked in October about when Biden would get a physical exam, she promised, “When he gets a physical, we will make all of that information available.”
In May, Psaki was asked about Biden’s health.
“I can tell you, having traveled with him a fair amount, sometimes he’s hard to keep up with,” Psaki, 42, insisted.
Biden is the oldest man to serve as president.
