Is it the only cat now or do you have other FeLV+ cats in the house?
If you keep kitten indoors, there's NO need to vaccinate, unless there are
FeLV+ cats - always vaccinate only according to a cat's lifestyle. The
vaccines themselves have been controversial and only 80% effective (as all
vaccines are) -so, if there's no need, don't do it.  Natalie

The FeLV vaccine is a non-core vaccine.  If the new kitty is going to be an 
indoor/outdoor kitty then definitely vaccinate.  Otherwise it is up to you.  
Many vets recommend vaccinating kittens.
