They should no better than to give an FIV shot. Once administered they will then always test positive for it whether they have it or not!!

It's very bad practice to vaccinate cats while they are having
surgery, but vets do it, so now I write out instructions not to
vaccinate, and put it on the cat's carrier when I bring them for
surgery.  I give my cats their PCRC, way before they have surgery,
but Rabies vaccinations are the law here, and only vets can give the
injections.  Once they are vaccinated I do not repeat vaccinations
annually, and I just ignore the postcards I get saying it's time to
vaccinate again.

   incorrectly  that  they  would  get  the same vaccines as the ones she

   they are strictly indoor cats!
