After your reply please give me a few minutes to type detailed answer.
I understand your concern. Esteemed authorities now believe indoor cats that have no exposure to other felines do not need yearly shots. You can get them 3 year rabies which I recommend for indoor cats as well as those that go outside.
If you want the FVRCP that is a yearly booster. That protects against airborne virus.The do not need FeLV vaccine because they will not be in contact with positive cats.
I agree with your son that a mobile vet is the way to go in your situation. Most of them are quite experienced dealing with temperamental kitties. Just tell them on the phone how your cats behave around strangers and I promise they will take extra care to arrive with kid gloves.Your fur babies will do just fine because the vet will be in and out before they even realize what is happening. This is definitely preferable to stressing them out with a car ride and a visit to a vet office.
Please let me know if you wish to discuss this further and I will be here for you.
