You guys are awesome, thank you so much for looking after Taruni. - Sue from Greenbank
First vaccination – 8 weeks
Second vaccination – 12 weeks
Third vaccination – 16 weeks (only necessary if the second vaccination was done before 12 weeks of age).
After this cats need a booster vaccination once every year.
These vaccinations protect against Cat Flu and Feline Enteritis. It takes 2 weeks after the final kitten vaccination before your cat is fully protected by the vaccine.
You can also have your cat vaccinated against Feline Aids (FIV). This is a separate vaccine and requires a vaccination once every 2 weeks on 3 consecutive occasions. Cats who spend time outdoors and can come into contact with other unfriendly cats are mostly likely to be at risk of Feline Aids. Feline Aids is often contracted during cat fights. There is no evidence to show that Feline Aids can transmit from cats to people.
Cats can also be vaccinated against Feline Leukeamia and Chlamydia. Your vet will decide on the best course of vaccinations for your cat depending on the risk factors involved.
