That first shot probably was not effective -- too early. We give first shots at 7-8 weeks. Second shots at 11-12 weeks and third shots at 15-16 weeks old.
I really hope you are ok with the puppy, but I would not trust the shots at this point. In another 2 weeks, after that 3rd set of shots, the pup should be ok.
Parvo is so scary, and I know that you know that.

But you stepped where she has been and you entered the house. Someone explained that earlier
ETA selzer mentioned it earlier. She said you have to bleach places you haven't gone to

first shot at 21-28 days , second shot after 21 days , third and last is after 21 days from the second one .then they take another shot every year afaik.
thanks for the advice , the old puppy never entered the house , this one lives inside and goes out just to pee.

If not, the puppy does not gain at all by the shots.
So if the pup had shots at 5 weeks and 8 weeks, and the immunity wore off at 7 weeks, the dog was without protection between 7 weeks and 8 weeks. If the immunity wore off at 9 weeks, the dog will be without protection until he gets his next set of shots at 11 or 12 weeks.
So the puppy could have been under its dam's immunity when you got her, and she can still possibly get it from within your home, if the stuff you sprayed did not kill everything. Let's hope it did. I would definitely be very careful until a few days after that shot on July 2nd.

I have a question about the front legs of your pup. Is it just the moment sitting in an awkward position for the picture or are they really pointing out?

the vet gave me a medicine and told me to spray the places my old puppy was at and said in 48 hours the remains of the parvovirus will be gone and there is a 1% chance that it might stay.
besides its been 3 weeks now and as vets said after a dog gets infected with parvo it takes 5-12 days to have the parvo effects shown on the dogs, and thank god nothing happened to her
btw she had 2 shots already and the last one will be taken on 2/7

Your puppy is NOT safe.
Your puppy is NOT safe from Parvo.
You had one die of parvo, you should know how it works.
You may even have parvo still living in your land outside, and I expect you bleached everything properly within the house -- everywhere your feet went, even if your puppy did not go there.
Your pup has had a shot last Friday. But it is only nine weeks old. It may have still been working under its mother's immunity, in which case the vaccine was killed off and your puppy will not make its own antibodies.
Your puppy should have another shot in a few weeks, and a third shot a month after that one. Then it will probably be ok for a year or more.
If parvo is common in your area, which it seems to be, than you should not be taking the puppy out yet, not until a few days after the second shot, and even then...
