What vaccines does he need?
The vet would know exactly what he needs.
Did they give you paper work on what he was updated on maybe it says probably what vaccines.
Sensitive with other people?
If need be they can muzzle him if he tries to bite of fear or something along those lines. One of my dogs have to be muzzled.

Titer test instead of Distemper Parvo etc, then give Rabies if he needs it and it is state mandated.

Not to people but just about everything, gets very upset I have learned a lot of people do not vaccinate I have also stopped heartworm pills as he was very sensitive to that also..

Never give more than one thing at a time wait 4 weeks in between to look for any adverse affects.

Titer testing is not always a good indicator of protection. See this for more info: Antibody Titer Testing as a Guide for Vaccination in Dogs and Cats | The SkeptVet

How old was Jax when you adopted him? If he was over a year old, most places I know of don't revaccinate for 3 years. My state requires rabies every 3 years (with a vaccine labeled as 3-year), and other things can be more flexible. Distemper/Parvo is important. The author of the link above recommends every 5 years once the dog is an adult. If Jax goes to a groomer, daycare, kennel, etc. they may have their own requirements. If had had a bad reaction with vaccines in the shelter, I would assume they would note that. I wouldn't worry about keeping him on a legal and reasonable vaccine schedule. People who don't vaccinate at all, ever, simply do not care about science and are buying into superstition.

I totally disagree Melody. People who over vaccinate cause more harm to their dogs. Our titers have been spot on. So.e years they get another sometimes they are good. We have never had an issue. The issue we have is BG is allergic to the Rabies vaccine. She will be up for a medical exemption next year and after watching her get worse when they denied her exemption last year I don't care if I break the law her life and health is more important and I refuse to give her another rabies.

My vet refused to give my 11 year old Zarita a rabies vaccine. She said it would be 'too stressful for her heart'. She is an indoor dog, so that helped in her decision. I have not given her the parvo/distemper vaccine either. She had the vaccine boosters until she was 9 years old. I remember when I had a dog when I was 12 he was given the booster at one year, and he was done for life. Rabies of course was every year back then. (long time ago!)
