What Shots Do Kittens Need?

Answer

When a kitten receives a vaccination, a small amount of virus is injected in the kitten causing an immune response that builds up the kitten’s immunity against the disease. Most kittens receive their first set of shots between 8 and 10 weeks old. Kittens get vaccinated for feline panleukopenia, feline rhinotracheitis (FVR), feline calcivirus, and feline pneumonitis (Chlamydia) among many other diseases.
