Health Alert: Hiring freeze leaves nearly 700 jobs unfilled at CDC

Nearly 700 positions are vacant at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention because of the Trump administration’s continuing freeze on hiring. Officials and researchers say the freeze affects programs supporting local and state public health emergency readiness, infectious disease control and chronic disease prevention.
The same restriction remains in place throughout the Health and Human Services Department despite the lifting of a government-wide hiring freeze last month. At the National Institutes of Health, staff say clinical work, patient care and recruitment are suffering.
