The distemper and parvo vaccinations are part of a combo vaccination given in 3 rounds of boosters at 6-8 weeks, 10-12 weeks and 14-16 weeks to increase immunity. Puppies do not need to have completed the series at start, but must stay up to date and on schedule throughout participation. Rabies is administered between 10 weeks and 6 months depending on veterinarian preferences and existing vaccination schedule.
