Normally the first set of vaccines is given at 8 weeks, but a little early won't hurt. She should get her next vaccines 3 weeks after the first, and then again three weeks later. For both she will get combined vaccine (usually a "DHLPP" - which includes distemper, parvo, etc. - though the actual vaccine given will vary somewhat depending on locality.) If you plan to board her or take her to areas where she'll contact other dogs your vet may also recommend a Bordatella vaccine. She will be given her rabies vaccine at 4 months of age. The rabies vaccine is required by law.
