  • Description:
    Countermeasures are interventions taken to help prevent or slow the spread of disease. An important way the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) helps keep our nation safe when public health emergencies (such as an influenza pandemic, natural disaster, or national security emergency) occur is by distributing and tracking the use of medicine and supplies used to address the health threat. Such medicine and supplies are commonly called medical countermeasures. When responding to events that put people’s health at risk, public health officials need timely, accurate information about their countermeasure supply, distribution, and use at the local, state, and national levels. CRA is an emergency response system that state public health departments can use to track vaccine doses administered and amount of dispensed medical countermeasures. Specifically, CRA data give public health officials key information on countermeasure dispensing and vaccine administration at both individual and aggregate levels. Through analysis of CRA data, officials also gain insight into the scope and demographics of populations served. CRA is one of three Web-based applications comprising CDC’s Countermeasure Tracking Systems (CTS) program. The three CTS applications are used separately or in combination, depending on the situation. CS292667-D cra-fact-sheet-508.pdf
