I do rabies only, because rabies is so catastrophic. The odds of our 
dogs contracting rabies here are small, but... Better safe than sorry on 
that one, at least in my opinion.

For young pups, I do some but not all of the 8, 12 and 16 week shots, 
and I just blanked on exactly which ones. Distemper and parvo, I think 
are the ones I stick with, again because those diseases are 
catastrophic. I need to figure it out before next week. I just talked to 
my vet niece about that, and she mentioned distemper as one she 
considers a must. We didn't talk parvo.

For me, it's a question of weighing the odds of problems from the 
vaccines over the odds of getting the disease in question and the 
consequences if the dog does get the disease. I don't want to 
over-vaccinate and want to be as minimalist as possible, but rabies at 
least is a must for me.
