Core & Non-Core Cat Vaccinations

Safeguarding Your Cat's Health

Vaccines help the immune system to build defences against contagious diseases. That’s why it’s important to make sure your cat is up-to-date on their vaccination schedule. There are many different cat vaccinations and injections, that protect against a range of different illnesses.

With so many different vaccinations, it can be confusing to know which vaccinations kittens and cats need and which ones are optional and based on their lifestyle and environment. With years of experience, our experienced veterinarians will recommend an individualised vaccine routine based on your cat’s age, lifestyle, and overall health. Here’s a general vaccination schedule that we recommend:

Your Cat & Kitten Vaccine Schedule

8 Weeks of Age

First vaccination to help build immunity and protect against common , infectious diseases.

12 Weeks of Age

The second vaccination is given as a booster.

16 Weeks of Age

Third and final vaccination to provide lasting immunity.

Annual Cat Vaccinations

After the primary vaccinations, we recommend annual boosters to maintain your cat's immunity.

What Do Core Vaccinations Protect Against?

There are three primary vaccinations recommended for cats, called F3 vaccinations. This vaccination is most commonly known as the core vaccine and is recommended for all cats. All cats in Australia need to receive the CORE F3 vaccination to ensure they are fully protected and remain healthy. 

This virus can be highly contagious and often fatal. If a cat falls ill the signs will include high fever, depression and anorexia.

This is an infectious disease caused by feline herpesvirus type-1. The symptoms show up in fever, sneezing, conjunctivitis, swelling of the lining of the nose (which is known as rhinitis) and frequently salivation.

This is a virus that is a cause of upper respiratory infections and oral disease. The symptoms with start as cold-like symptoms that worsen.

Does Your Cat Need Non-Core Cat Vaccinations?

Non-core vaccines are optional vaccination and are based on the risk of exposure to certain diseases in your cat’s environment.

This is generally recommended by some veterinarians for all cats. The decision is your choice and should be discussed with your vet. Vaccination can begin at eight to twelve weeks of age and requires a booster vaccine repeated three to four weeks later.

This vaccination is reserved for cats at high risk for disease. Cats being vaccinated should receive a test prior to vaccination. Vaccination can begin at 8 weeks of age and should be bolstered at two- to three-week intervals for a total of three initial vaccines.

This vaccine is only used in multi-cat environments where the infection is already has a prior existence in the community. The vaccine can be administered at 9 weeks of age or older, when needed, and should be bolstered three to four weeks later.

Keeping your cat’s vaccinations up-to-date is crucial for a healthy lifestyle and proper development. The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) recommend that every cat and kitten must receive core vaccines to prevent widespread life-threatening diseases.

At The House Call Vet we can discuss the best vaccination schedule and types of vaccines to ensure your cat is protected.

The waiting period between each vaccine will depend on the age of your ca and kitten.

For adult cats, it is common practice in Australia to have them vaccinated every twelve months. However, new research has shown that some cat vaccinations can be effective for more than a year.

For younger cats and kittens, their vaccination schedule will usually include three vaccinations in a period over six months.

This depends on how old your cat was when they received their last vaccine. For young kittens who are more than 2 weeks late for their vaccination, their immune system will no longer be as active which means that the following vaccination will be less effective. However, if too much time has elapsed between vaccinations, our vets may discuss restarting the vaccination course.

For the treatment to work as effectively as possible, your kitten should not be younger than six weeks when they start receiving their first vaccine.
