I wrote earlier that the latest protocol was to space the FVRCP vaccine to
every three years, NOT every year, as most vets still do.  I also mentioned
that when a cat receives the first two, spaced a month apart, and another
one year later, it should technically protect a cat for life (much like
vaccines for human babies)..

This is what I found:



The three simplest feline virues are feline panleukopenia (FPV), also known
as "feline distemper" or "feline parvovirus," calicivirus (FCV) and
rhinotracheitis (feline herpes virus, or FHV). (They mention only three, but
most vaccines are a combination of 5 - FVRCP - Natalie)

Protection against these three diseases as the result of vaccination is
typically excellent and extremely long lasting (probably lifelong), although
it should be noted that cats who are immune to FCV and FHV from vaccination
or natural infection can still be re-infected by the viruses; they simply
will not become ill, or if they do, it's very mild.
