Kitten Vaccination

Kitten Vaccinations

Kittens are vaccinated once every three to four weeks until they reach 16 weeks of age. However, often to avoid overvaccination, most veterinarians will recommend starting the vaccine process at 8 weeks of age, followed by boosters at 12 weeks and 16 weeks. Rabies is the other core kitten vaccination.

When should kittens get their first vaccination shots?


Kittens should get their first vaccination at 8 weeks of age.

How often does my kitten need to be vaccinated?


At 8, 12 and 16 weeks.

Does my kitten only need core vaccines?


No, depending on location and the lifestyle of the cat, feline leukemia and rabies are recommended.
