Beginning in 1997, the SIP was required to adhere to FDA current Good Clinical Practice guidelines (cGCP); this requirement led to compliance with FDA-mandated cGCP and current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP). The maintenance of multiple extramural vaccination locations was discontinued in 1999 when these sites could no longer meet the rigorous regulatory requirements necessary for monitoring investigational vaccines. In 2000, FDA placed the SIP tularemia and Q fever vaccination protocols on clinical hold until reports on their use in 1963–1998 were submitted and their safety and immunogenicity data analyzed.
