Mine were not symptomatic at the time they got the FVRCP. They became symptomatic immediately afterward. If there is a huge risk of getting panleukopenis (sp?) You might want to take the risk - if you rescue a lot from AC. Otherwise it is another thing for their immune system to deal with. I don't give any of my cats FVRCP vax anymore since I stopped fostering except fot the FeLVs.
