COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement
Nationwide Preliminary Injunction
To ensure compliance with an applicable preliminary nationwide injunction, which may be supplemented, modified, or vacated, depending on the course of ongoing litigation, the Federal Government will take no action to implement or enforce Executive Order 14043 Requiring Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination for Federal Employees. Therefore, to the extent a federal job announcement includes the requirement to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 pursuant to Executive Order 14043, that requirement does not currently apply. Positions with vaccination requirements under authority(ies) separate and distinct from Executive Order 14043 will be clearly identified. HHS may continue to require documentation of proof of vaccination to ensure compliance with those policies. Health and safety protocols remain in effect, in accordance with CDC guidance and the Safer Federal Workforce Task force. Consistent with current guidance, workplace safety protocols will no longer vary based on vaccination status or otherwise depend on the availability of vaccination information. Therefore, to the extent a job announcement states that HHS may request information regarding the vaccination status of selected applicants for the purposes of implementing workplace safety protocols, this statement does not currently apply.

Work With Us
Employee satisfaction at HHS has been growing steadily since 2014, making it one of the best places to work in the federal government.
"What I am most proud of is knowing I directly contribute to the mission by helping HHS hire employees to advance HHS’ great mission. The employees here are dedicated, who work hard and passionately every day!"
“I love how HHS is there to support and help the public; to keep them safe. I prefer HHS over the private sector because the focus isn’t on making money. It’s about helping our citizens — researching what we can — to help them be the best they can.”
“I’m a caretaker type of personality. I know I don’t have the heart or stomach to do the work that nurses do. I’m not scientific enough to find the cure for cancer. But supporting the people who do that work is what matters. I can buy the beaker. I can make sure you know what to expect with work overseas. I love participating in something bigger that will help improve the world overall.”
“My HR role is managing contracts, but my job is to support the CDC’s global mission.”
