Vaccine A liquid preparation that contains a modified or killed disease-causing agent
Vaccination Usually done by injection, it is the act of administering the vaccine. 
Immunity The effect of vaccination --  protecting your pet  from disease.   The immune system of your pet will be tricked into behaving as though a natural infection was occurring.    Antibodies are produced and these will intercept the disease-causing forms of the virus or bacteria.   

There are several types of vaccines your pet may, could or should receive.     A breeding pet should be vaccinated prior to being bred, and most pets will need to be vaccinated between 6 weeks and 6 months of age.   In addition, annual boosters will have to be given for a lifetime of protection.

Your pet may receive a "multivalent" type vaccine which will immunize them from several diseases.   Additionally, your  pet will need to be vaccinated annually against Rabies.

Cats and dogs vary somewhat in the vaccines they require and the time frame they should receive these.  The following is a recommended schedule of when and what might need to be administered.
