Primary vaccination:

Revaccination: Annual.

Where high levels of maternal antibodies against R or C components are expected to be present (e.g. in kittens of 9 - 12 weeks of age born from queens which were vaccinated before pregnancy and/or with known or suspected previous exposure to the pathogen(s)), the primary vaccination course should be delayed until 12 weeks of age.
