The FIRST website to track and expose Bad Boosters, Lyme Disease Lies, Mercury Madness, Parvo Prism, Rabies Reactions, and Vaccinosis.




Vaccination charts by American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)


First shots CHART, what age and which vaccines to give your puppy, immune system, booster shots and veterinary caution on the dangerous practice of over-vaccination.


We provide a free printable chart of recommended first shots and booster shots because there is so much conflicting advice on the internet AND from veterinary practices that are more interested in their bottom line than in protecting the health of your dog. Also print a veterinary checklist (link below) to take with you to your vet.


The NetPlaces Network Science and Advisory Board advises owners to weigh risk of exposure to deadly virus against the risk of the treatment or preventative.


AVMA Vaccination Recommendations for Dogs




Length of Immunity

Risk/Severity of Adverse Effects


Canine Distemper Core High > 1 year for modified live virus (MLV) vaccines Low  
Parvovirus Core High > 1 year Low  
Hepatitis Core High > 1 year Low Only use canine adenovirus-2 (CAV-2) vaccines
Rabies Core High Dependent upon type of vaccine Low to moderate  
Respiratory disease from canine adenovirus-2 (CAV-2) NonCore Not adequately studied Short Minimal If vaccination warranted, boost annually or more frequently
Parainfluenza NonCore Intranasal MLV - Moderate Injectable MLV - Low Moderate Low Only recommended for dogs in kennels, shelters, shows, or large colonies; If vaccination warranted, boost annually or more frequently
Measles NonCore High in preventing disease, but not in preventing infection Long Infrequent Use in high risk environments for canine distemper in puppies 4-10 weeks of age
Bordetella NonCore Intranasal MLV - Moderate Injectable MLV - Low Short Low For the most benefit, use intranasal vaccine 2 weeks prior to exposure
Leptospirosis NonCore Variable Short High Up to 30% of dogs may not respond to vaccine
Coronavirus NonCore Low Short Low Risk of exposure high in kennels, shelters, shows, breeding facilities
Lyme NonCore Appears to be limited to previously unexposed dogs; variable Revaccinate annually Moderate  


Veterinary Assoc. suggested canine vaccination schedule for the 'average' dog.

Dog Vaccination Schedule



5 weeks Parvovirus: for puppies at high risk of exposure to parvo, some veterinarians recommend vaccinating at 5 weeks. Check with your veterinarian.
6 & 9 weeks Combination vaccine* without leptospirosis. Coronavirus: where coronavirus is a concern.
12 weeks or older Rabies: Given by your local veterinarian (age at vaccination may vary according to local law).
12 & 15 weeks** Combination vaccine
Leptospirosis: include leptospirosis in the combination vaccine where leptospirosis is a concern, or if traveling to an area where it occurs.
Coronavirus: where coronavirus is a concern.
Lyme: where Lyme disease is a concern or if traveling to an area where it occurs.
Adult (boosters)? Combination vaccine
Leptospirosis: include leptospirosis in the combination vaccine where leptospirosis is a concern, or if traveling to an area where it occurs.
Coronavirus: where coronavirus is a concern.
Lyme: where Lyme disease is a concern or if traveling to an area where it occurs.
Rabies: Given by your local veterinarian (time interval between vaccinations may vary according to local law).
*A combination vaccine, often called a 5-way vaccine, usually includes adenovirus cough and hepatitis, distemper, parainfluenza, and parvovirus. Some combination vaccines may also include leptospirosis (7-way vaccines) and/or coronavirus. The inclusion of either canine adenovirus-1 or adenovirus-2 in a vaccine will protect against both adenovirus cough and hepatitis; adenovirus-2 is highly preferred.
**Some puppies may need additional vaccinations against parvovirus after 15 weeks of age. Consult with your local veterinarian.
? According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, dogs at low risk of disease exposure may not need to be boostered yearly for most diseases. Consult with your local veterinarian to determine the appropriate vaccination schedule for your dog. Remember, recommendations vary depending on the age, breed, and health status of the dog, the potential of the dog to be exposed to the disease, the type of vaccine, whether the dog is used for breeding, and the geographical area where the dog lives or may visit.
Bordetella and parainfluenza: For complete canine cough protection, we recommend Intra-Trac II ADT. For dogs that are shown, in field trials, or are boarded, we recommend vaccination every six months with Intra-Trac II ADT.


Researchers at the Veterinary Schools at the University of Minnesota, Colorado State University, and University of Wisconsin suggest alternating vaccinations in your dog. Instead of using multivalent vaccines (combination vaccines against more than one disease), they recommend using monovalent vaccines which only have one component, e.g., a vaccine that only contains parvovirus.


So, one year your dog would be vaccinated against distemper, the next year against canine adenovirus-2, and the third year against parvovirus. Manufacturers of dog vaccines have not changed their labeling which recommends annual vaccinations. Each dog owner must make an informed choice of when to vaccinate, and with what.


use this clipboard for your checklist to take to the veterinarianOur staff says "always check with your veterinarian" on vaccine schedules but use informed judgment if that practice pushes any yearly vaccine whether it is on this list of Core Vaccines or not.  And know this: manufacturers' statement of duration of immunity will be for the  shortest  time period in order to protect the vaccine maker.  And see this short, simple Instant Information on ii Vaccine Induced Disease.


Although most breeders give their own shots, we recommend that new owners get their puppy's booster shots at the vet's office. You should receive a record of the type of vaccine and the manufacturer to be kept in your puppy's permanent home records.
