Kitten Vaccinations

We highly recommend that all kittens receive a series of vaccine to reduce their susceptibility risk to many potentially fatal illnesses. We suggest that kittens start their vaccines at 8 weeks of age and receive boosters at 12 weeks and 16 weeks.

When should kittens get their first vaccination?


We typically recommend that kittens get their first vaccination at around eight weeks of age.

How often does my kitten need to be vaccinated?


It is recommended that your kitten is vaccinated every 4 weeks. The standard vaccine schedule starts at 8 weeks old. The vaccine is then repeated at 12 weeks of age, and the final kitten booster is given at 16 weeks. From here your kitten will be considered up to date on vaccines for a year following the final booster.

Does my kitten only need core vaccines?


It depends on your kitten’s lifestyle.
