Kitten Vaccinations

When do kittens get their first immunization?

Ideally kittens receive their first vaccines at around 8 weeks old.

How often do my kittens need vaccines?

Typically 3 sets of vaccines are given at 8, 12 and 16 weeks. This helps ensure that kittens not responding to the initial vaccines do so at the later booster while helping those with poor milk transfer of immunity become protected as early as possible.

Does my kitten need only core vaccines?

In addition to FVRCP and Rabies (the “core” vaccines), immunization for feline leukemia is advised for kittens. Not all adult cats will need protection against feline leukemia long term, but lifestyles change for many cats and some are escape artists!
