Vaccine Recommendations for Pets
One of the easiest ways to keep your pets healthy is by getting them their proper vaccinations. Vaccinations help protect your pets from some harmful diseases and can also keep diseases from spreading to humans.
- It is important to work with a veterinarian for the proper vaccinations for your pet. Your pet may only need some vaccines only once and other vaccines might need to be given to your pet more than once (such as every year).

Vaccine Recommendations for 4-H Animals and Livestock
It is important to get the proper vaccines for your animals and livestock to lower the chances of them getting diseases. When animals live together in groups or are brought together during shows, it is easier for diseases to be spread between the animals and to humans.
- It is important to work with a veterinarian and your 4-H leader to know the right vaccine requirements for your animals. There may be different requirements depending on the show or the area you are in.
