How NSSP Works Across CDC

NSSP collaborates with programs across CDC, and with health departments, to improve syndromic surveillance and respond to health events like the opioid overdose epidemic, e-cigarette or vaping product use-associated lung injury, and influenza-like illness. The collaborations described, while not exhaustive, summarize ongoing efforts.

To make sure the benefits outweigh the risks for people who get vaccinated, several vaccine safety monitoring systems are in place to watch for adverse events (possible side effects). To further support these systems, state and local partners of the National Syndromic Surveillance Program (NSSP) have expressed interest in exploring the use of emergency department (ED) data to monitor safety.
