Most of the new veterinary protocols call for vaccines every 3 years, though there is still debate as to whether they are needed even that often. However, some vets have not kept up with the vet association's recommendations and others choose to still vaccinate annually to make sure their clients still bring the cat or dog in for an annual exam. Annual exams are still recommended even if only getting vaccines every 3 years.

Some communities have updated their rabies statutes to allow for a 3 year vaccine, but many haven't and still require an annual rabies vaccination.

Getting titers run to determine the animal's level of antibody protection is often way more expensive than the shots.

Of course, shots for animals that have adverse reactions or are ill can be skipped if the vet thinks it is in the animal's best interest. Most of the literature for vaccines say they should only be administered to healthy animals.
