In order to better explain the benefits of non-adjuvanted vaccines, please read below:
Cats are distinctive in many ways, and sometimes they tend to develop injection site reactions. In other words, when administering certain types of inoculations, felines might react at the site of the injection, the riskiest are called adjuvanted vaccines. These are vaccines that contain an irritating substance along with the virus. These adjuvants are critical for some vaccines to improve the immune response and guarantee protection.
In canines, humans, and other species, these vaccines are safe and effective, but in certain cats, they have been associated with causing “vaccine site sarcomas”, which is a deadly cancer. The risks are very low, estimated at approximately one to two out of every 10,000. The vaccine with the highest risk is the “adjuvanted” rabies, but some other injections, like long-lasting shots, have also been found to cause these responses.
The chances of getting a vaccine site sarcoma are virtually gone by using “non-adjuvanted vaccines”. These inoculations are formulated to reduce the need for an adjuvant and allow them to be safely administered with little to no risk of malignant tumor formation, and they are as effective as adjuvanted vaccines.
