Sally, I personally would not vaccinate a positive cat. See Jean Dodds'
and Charles Loop's (both vets) views here. (The paragraph below is taken
from the website.) Kerry M.

>>>All packages of vaccinations carry warnings that they should be
injected only in healthy animals. In the case of cats, vaccine
manufacturers advise against vaccinating pregnant or nursing cats.
However, many pets are not healthy when vaccinated although they might
not have outward signs of health problems. Charles Loops, DVM, a
holistic veterinarian from Pittsboro, North Carolina, notes that
"chemically killed viruses or bacteria are injected directly into the
blood stream, which is an unnatural route of infection." (7) This causes
the animal's antibodies to attempt to fight off the offending virus
molecules and render them harmless. If the animal's immune system is too
weakened, he or she cannot fight off these viruses and can develop a
reaction to the vaccine. Even small amounts of a virus that is
introduced through a vaccination may be too much for sick animals to
fight off. They then may fall ill from the very disease to which they
have been vaccinated.<<<

Another question.  My kittens tested positive with the ELISA test.  May
they have their vaccines?  Mom gets tested Friday.  If positive, may she
have her vaccines?  May she be spayed?
