I took my cat Stamp to get the free vaccines last year and the process is extremely easy. We pulled right up, and a vet took Stamp in her carrier gave her the shot on a table just outside my cat, and returned her back to me in a matter of minutes. I then got a certificate to show proof of vaccination for three years right after they returned Stamp.
