I have 10 cats and had I had 11 when the outbreak occurred. Of those cats, the ones who had one vaccination given by me did not become infected. Part of that would be bc of natural immunity and part i believe is bc the original vaccine gave them immunity. Those shots were given 6 or 7 years before I got a sick cat from a shelter who in turn sickened some of my recent additions. Since then I still have these same three cats they are all older now. I feel good about that.
