For those who would like to go into Vaccinations more deeply, here are a few more online resources. They are written for vets but most of the information is understandable for pet owners wanting more detailed info.

1) 2006 American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) Feline Vaccination Guidelines

These have been endorsed by the AVMA, AAHA , etc:

http://www.catvets.com/uploads/PDF/2006_Vaccination_Guidelines_JAVMA.pdf


2) Vaccines & Vaccinations: A Reference Website for Veterinarians

This is a personal website by Dr Richard Ford, one of the co-authors of the AAFP Feline Vaccination Guidelines (and also the AAHA Canine Guidelines). He summarizes the 2006 Guidelines in a series of tables as well as gives updated info in footnotes and a Q&A section. There are also links to the AAFP Guidelines (also given above).

3) World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) 2010 Guidelines for the Vaccination of Dogs and Cats

This was just published in June 2010. One of the three co-authors is Dr Ron Schultz of the Univ of Wisconsin. Dr Schultz is one of the leading veterinary Immunologists and is a co-author also of the AAFP Feline Guidelines and the AAHA Canine Guidelines.

4) American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) 2006 Canine Vaccination Guidelines

This is a little off topic ... but for those wanting to learn more about dog vaccinations, this is a link to the AAHA Canine Vaccination Guidelines. Dr Ford's website (given above) also contains summary tables for these Canine Guidelines.

The 2006 Canine Guidelines will soon be superseded by new 2010 AAHA Canine Guidelines that are currently being written and due to be published by the end of this year. Here is a link to the 2006 Guidelines:
