The Cat Clinic Hobart supports the routine vaccination of all cats against major infectious diseases. Recent scientific evidence has questioned the necessity for routine annual vaccinations and whether vaccine-induced immunity will last more than 12 months. Currently there is insufficient evidence to determine the optimum frequency of vaccination for any individual disease. There is no doubt in anyones mind that vaccinations have played a vital role in reducing the prevalence and severity of several feline diseases including some that are associated with a high mortality rate and for this reason we support owners making an informed choice about which vaccine components should be used, and the frequency of booster vaccinations, based on current best evidence and the individual needs of each cat, keeping in mind genuine risks and needs.
