I was going to say...puppies vaccines are given at 6-8 weeks, then every 3 weeks until they are 4mos., at which point they get a rabies vaccine.

I don't have a lot of assistance, others would be better suited; but wanted to add, it is not detrimental to keep the dog at home until this situation is under control.

If it never is under control, then as a responsible owner you need to keep other dogs and the public safe.
If that entails leaving the dog at home for the rest of it's life, that's what you'll need to do.
There's plenty of exercise things you can do in a safe setting that doesn't include the hubbub of outdoor markets, etc.

There are lots of exercises you can do with "threshold" tolerances Behavioral Adjustment Training http://functionalrewards.com/BAT-basics.pdf I have had to deal with reactivity issues with my 2 older dogs from a lack of socialization.

Never let your dog get into a situation where she could bite someone.

The puppy classes I went to required the first two series of puppy shots, and was for puppies from 10 weeks old. That early socialization is very important, but there's nothing you can do about that except work on it now.
If I recall, there is a series of rabies shots, right? Maybe it was at the 1-year mark when the last shot is given, but I can't remember. Either way, I do remember the vet being on the same page as the rescue organization. This really upsets me!

I will do my best to make up what I can for this missed opportunity.

No there is no "series" of rabies vaccine.
You do one at 4mos.
Then again a year later (so a year and 4mos. of age)

Then not again for 3yrs. in most or many states, at which point you do every 3yrs.

At 4mos., a puppy is considered fully vaccinated.

Yep, that jogged my memory. Thanks.
