Rabies 1 year or 3 year.   Kittens must be at least 3 months old to get the rabies vaccine.  The first rabies vaccination is one-year duration.  Later rabies vaccinations are 3-year duration.


FVRCP (sometimes called HCP) vaccine.  for feline viral rhinotracheitis (herpesvirus), calicivirus and panleukopenia.  This is the most important to protect all kittens and cats from deadly viruses common from unvaccinated kittens and cats.   Kittens get a series of FVRCP monthly from 7 weeks to about 14-16 weeks of age.   Cats get the FVRCP vaccine once a year.  Important for all cats, even if indoors only.


FeLV — feline leukemia vaccine.  Given twice (about a month apart) in kittens, then once a year in adult cats.  Important for any cat that has potential exposure to unvaccinated or feral cats — in other words, for any cat that goes outdoors.
