WOW! That is a whole lot of viruses to be pumped into a brand new little body! IMHO...if your vet pushes the 7 way.....I'd look for a new vet who doesn't over-vaccinate!

Here is a schedule from lifetime vaccine researcher Dr. Jean Dodds

W. Jean Dodds, DVM2013 and 2014 Vaccination Protocol
Note:
The following vaccine protocol is offered for those dogs where minimal vaccinations are advisable or desirable. The schedule is one Dr. Dodds recommends and should not be interpreted to mean that other protocols recommended by a veterinarian would be less satisfactory. Itís a matter of professional judgment and choice (YOUR choice not the vet).

9-10 Weeks Old: Distemper + Parvovirus, MLV (e.g. Merck Nobivac [Intervet Progard] Puppy DPV)



14-16 Weeks: Same as above


1 Year: Rabies, killed 3-year product (give 3-4 weeks apart from distemper/parvovirus booster)

1 Year: Distemper + Parvovirus, MLV (OPTIONAL = titer)






For Dr. Doddsí position on various canine vaccines, please refer to the following posts:
