What vaccinations does my kitten need?

Vaccinations for a kitten

Kittens receive their first vaccinations at about eight to ten weeks of age, and a follow-up vaccination in three to four weeks. Your vet will instruct you on how many visits will be needed and which vaccines should be administered, based upon your kitty's age and risk factors. Boosters are then given at one year of age, and annually thereafter for the rest of the cat's life. The rabies vaccine is slightly different; it is given first at about three months of age, boosted at one year, then repeated at three-year intervals.
