The American Association of Feline Practitioners has released new Vaccination Guidelines, endorsed by the International Society of Feline Medicine.

The schedule is more conservative in the types and frequency of vaccinations. For indoor cats see Table 2.

New injection sites are recommended due to vaccine related carcinomas.  You may want to take this with you to discuss with your vet (particularly if they are not a cat-only vet) during your cat's next appointment.

Unfortunately, up until this year, my cats were getting the 3 year because I didn't know and my old vet never gave me a choice. New vet only does one year and is much more cautious about vaccines in general.
