My homeopathic vet does very few vaccinations. She does rabies titers  
whenever possible.
She would never vaccinate a positive cat. I would be very frightened  
of any vet who would.
Years ago I had a negative cat who became positive after the FeLV  

I would urge everyone to read Catherine Diodoti's books on animal  
vaccines. I used to vaccinate
yearly, until I ran into Dr Richard Pitcairn.
