The 2020 AAHA/AAFP Feline Vaccination Guidelines provide the most current information and recommendations for feline vaccination as determined by a task force of experts in feline practice. The recommendations are based on current peer-reviewed literature and data, and complemented by clinical insights collectively derived from decades of experience. This executive summary provides selected highlights of the guidelines.
A task force convened by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) examined the most current feline vaccination research and concluded that vaccine protocols should be tailored for individual cats’ unique lifestyles and infectious-disease exposure risks.
