Is it worth it?

I've heard that it only "buys" you an hour of time to get to the vet (from our old veterinarian), and I've also heard that it's ineffective (from another vet). Our current vet, who we are still enamored with, says that it is a personal choice that isn't "necessary" but he's one of those vets that gives you options and helps guide the owner to make educated decisions. He also isn't one of those vets that is trigger happy when it comes to medications or elective vaccinations.

Thoughts?

I started a thread on the topic a while back. You can do a search on here and see some of the responses I got.
I ultimately decided against it since the vaccine is so new and was worried about the side effects. I will tell you that I know someone who did give the vaccine to her dog (non GSD) and so far they have not had any bad reactions.
I guess it is a personal choice. I am in a high snake area but hopefully the snake season won't be too bad.
