Vaccines are available for a number of important infectious diseases in cats. It is generally recommended that all cats be vaccinated against the viruses causing cat flu, panleukopenia virus (or feline parvovirus), and rabies (in countries where this is a problem) due to the severity and/or frequency of infection with these viruses. It is commonly recommended that all kittens also receive vaccination against feline leukaemia virus. Following kitten vaccines, first adult booster vaccination should be performed from 6 months of age. After this, vaccination needs should be assessed at least once a year. Which vaccines are used, and the frequency of their use will vary according to individual circumstances, and this should be discussed with your vet. Remember too, that while vaccination can never provide 100% protection in all situations, vaccines play an absolutely vital role in the fight against these feline diseases
