Kitten Vaccines

Kittens have a fragile immune system and require vaccinations every 3 weeks starting at 6 weeks of age. Every kitten should receive 3 sets of vaccinations from 6 to 12 weeks of age. It is very important that your kitten receive their vaccinations every 3 weeks to prevent serious diseases such as feline viral rhinotracheitis, calici, panleukopenia, and chlamydia.
