Vaccination Schedule

All kittens need vaccinations to help them stay healthy. Vaccines protect kittens against certain diseases while their immune system continues to develop.

A typical recommended core vaccination schedule for kittens will start at around 8-9 weeks of age, followed by a booster 3-4 weeks later, finishing from around 12 weeks of age. Another booster needs to be given one year later. In most cases kittens in the UK spend time outdoors and may therefore encounter cats that carry feline leukaemia virus (FeLV). Kittens are therefore usually offered vaccination against FeLV too.
