Hi Gia

The vaccinations are used to protect an animal against an infectious disease. Vaccines stimulate the immune system so that when your cat encounters the pathogen the body can react immediately rather than having a delayed response to counteract the infectious agent. Cats rarely get sick following a vaccination. I advise that all animals are vaccinated on an annual basis.

Kind regards
