Asked in Vaccinations
Do you need vaccination records to enroll in college?
Do you need to get a flu vaccination again in 90 days?
Otherwise healthy adults, teens and children over 10 only need a single vaccination for the flu to be fully protected. After about 2 weeks from the time of the vaccination you will be protected. Younger children need a series of two flu vaccinations, usually given a month apart. After around another 2 weeks from the time of the second vaccination, they are protected. Babies under 6 months old do not have immune systems mature enough to get vaccinated for the flu.
Asked in Cats (Felines)
Does cat need a vaccine after catching a mouse?
Once a cat has caught and eaten a mouse, if the cat is going to catch anything from the mouse, it is a bit too late for vaccination... vaccination is to prevent disease, and by the time you have the cat to the vet for the booster shot, if it is infected, the infection is already past the point at which vaccination will help. If you expect that your cat will be catching mice, vaccination with periodic boosters is a good idea, as mice do carry diseases that cats can catch.
