Kitten Vaccinations

Congratulations on your new kitten! Having your kitten vaccinated will protect them from some of the most serious diseases for cats.

When should kittens get their first vaccinations?

Kittens should receive their first vaccines at 8, 12 and 16 weeks of age.

How often does my kitten need to be vaccinated?
