Definitely talk to your vet on this one, there's really no sense in leaving your kitten's health up to chance, or any non-professional for that matter.

If you are talking about vaccination for a certain illness it is usually done every year. But in order to be sure consulting a vet is the best thing to do.

Don't risk your baby's health, definitely ask a professional who knows exactly for the risks in your area and the breed, age, etc.

It also depends on where you live, as different vets and states require different shots to be had. And then, different shots have to be taken at different times, so the onyl way to know for sure, is to consult a vet.

These are 3-way shots for URI (Upper Respiratory Infections) include Calicivirus, Rhinovirus and Panleukemia.

Your veterinarian may still recommend yearly boosters, although that practice is under question.

Indoor cats that are fully isolated {have NO exposure to outdoor cats, and never have other cats at the home} should not need Leukemia or Rabies. The exception is when Rabies is required by local jurisdictions.

I still have mine get Leukemia and rabies I had a cat die of Leukemia years ago and I don't want it to happen again better safe than sorry

I know it goes in a series and starts at about 4-6 weeks. Im sure its no different for an indoors or outdoors cat. I would think they get the same shots.
