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?


After their initial 3 sets of vaccines, your kitten will move to a vaccination schedule consisting of 1-3 year durations depending on the vaccine given.

Does my kitten only need core vaccines?


If your kitten will be heading outdoors, or will be around other cats who are unvaccinated, the Feline Leukemia vaccine may be recommended by your veterinarian. FeLV can be transmitted through bodily fluids (fighting, grooming).
