One of the easiest and most effective ways of preventing your cat from getting sick is by making sure she gets all her vaccinations on a regular basis. Kittens need vaccinations every two to four weeks until they are at least 14 weeks of age. Most vets follow the schedules given below, although there may be some variation from state to state. Some vaccines are given separately, while others may be combined into a single shot, which makes things easier.

Some vaccines are given separately, while others may be combined into a single shot, which makes things easier. If a cat over 14 weeks of age has an unknown vaccine history, has not been previously vaccinated, or is more than six months overdue, vaccinate and booster in three weeks, then annually. Rabies are an exception to the two to four weeks booster rule (see recommendation below).
