I didn't think that bunnies needed vaccinations. I just came across a website that said this:
Rabbits should be vaccinated against two diseases - myxomatosis and viral haemorragic disease (VHD).
Myxomatosis is a fatal disease whereas VHD, although not always fatal, will make your rabbit very unwell. Pet rabbits do not need direct contact with wild rabbits to contact either of these viruses since biting flies and fleas can act as vectors. Vaccination therefore, is the only way to protect your pet rabbit.
They can start vaccinations from the age of 8 - 10 weeks, though this may vary at different veterinary practices. They will need boosters, which are either carried out yearly or six-monthly, depending again on the practice.
Do you vaccinate your bunnies? What are the pros and cons of vaccinating?
depends on what country you are in- there are no vaccines for rabbits in the US. Though there are vaccs in Australia and maybe the UK. I am sure other members will weigh in here and let us know what their countries allow.
