Nail how often?

The pic is looking up at the gutter on the left, a 3/4" fascia board which extends past the old plywood soffit by 3/4". I'm installing solid vinyl soffit (12" piece) in channel trim around the house. How often should I nail the channel trim? Been nailing every 12-18". How often do I nail in the soffit material? I've been using like 2 nails every 3-4 pieces of vinyl. Thought I'd ask before I get too far.

I did soffits on my shed last summer, that's about what I did and nothing is sagging after a year!
