|Hi hi, nope!
I feed raw (Hare Today meat/organ/bone mixes w/ Alnutrin), and my kitten got the standard core vaccines for my area - FVRCP and PureVax rabies -- no others needed!
Human grade meat sold in the grocery in the US is free of parasites (including worms), but some do regularly de-worm their cat anyway. Cats are more likely to pick up parasites from other infected animals or if they're also outdoor cats than eating raw human-grade meat. If you are feeding wild-caught meat or fish, parasites can be killed by deep freezing before feeding.
I feed ground mixes so I'll let someone else chime in about pre-fab raw -- but from what I've read, these tend to be higher in bone so supplementing with meat is okay!
