    Others can provide more info, but I don't think you need to vaccinate your own. The only thing I am planning on doing so far for my first batch (due next week) is medicated starter feed to prevent Cocciciosis.

    Mine were vaccinated for Marek's at the hatchery. I'm not sure if there is a time limit for that though.
