• What will be the consequences of an infection?
• Does the risk of an infected cat pose a threat to you or your family's health? (e. g., rabies)
• How effective is the vaccine?
• What is the frequency and/or severity of the reactions that the vaccine will cause?
• How old is your cat?
• Is your cat healthy?
• What types of reactions has your cat had to vaccines in the past?
