Kitten Vaccinations

Vaccines are started for kittens at 6-8 weeks of age just as their protection from their mother’s colostrum is decreasing. A second set of vaccinations is administered at 12 weeks and a third set at 16 weeks in order to ensure complete protection.

When should kittens get their first vaccination shots?


Kittens should start their immunizations at around eight weeks of age.

How often does my kitten need to be vaccinated?


We recommend kittens be vaccinated monthly at 2, 3 and 4 months of age.

Does my kitten only need core vaccines?


It is recommended that all kittens receive Fvrcp, rabies and the feline leukemia vaccine as a base of immunity. Your veterinarian will assess disease risk after that and adjust the vaccine schedule to what is best for your cat.
