Hi Sharyl, 

           There are two types of FeLV vaccines available. The most commonly 
used is an adjuvanted, killed vaccine. They include;

Fel-O-Vax LV-K
 By Boehringer Ingelheim (formerly Fort Dodge). This killed virus leukemia 
vaccine is given subcutaneously or intramuscularly. For cats 10 weeks of age 
and older. 

Leukocell 2
 by Pfizer Animal Health. Killed feline leukemia virus. Given subcutaneously. 
For cats 9 weeks of age or older. Boxes of 50 doses (2 doses needed for initial 

Nobivac® FeLV
 For the vaccination of healthy cats as an aid in the prevention of disease 
associated with feline leukemia virus infection. Formerly known as Fevaxyn® 

I'm sure there are others, as well.

            Then there is a non-adjuvanted recombinant (modifed live) 
injectable FeLV vaccine which is very new, made by Merial. This is much less 
likely to cause FISS/VAS than the adjuvanted vaccines. The cat I am most 
concerned in vaccinating has already lost one leg, so I need to choose this 
vaccine, as he cannot lose another. The trouble has been finding it.
