Kitten Vaccinations

Our goal is to activate a kitten’s immune system with vaccine exposure so that their body can fight off an illness they could be faced within their lifetime. The typical schedule for kitten vaccinations is at 8, 12 and 16 weeks old.

When should kittens get their first vaccination?

Ideally, kittens receive their first vaccine at about 8 weeks of age.

How often does my kitten need to be vaccinated?

The core vaccine for kittens is FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia combo vaccine) it should be boostered at 8, 12 and 16 weeks. At 16 weeks, they usually receive a Rabies vaccine as well.

Does my kitten only need core vaccines?

It depends on their lifestyle, we recommend FVRCP and Rabies to all cats and kittens, but the leukemia vaccine is typically only given to outdoor cats.
