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.
