From what Izrddr said earlier in the thread the vaccine doesn't seem to prevent the virus, it just keeps the dog from getting as sick and helps them recover faster.
It's times like this that it's a blessing that Zody is reactive. He's not a dog sport, dog park, doggy play group, candidate. I tend to avoid taking him places where there will be a lot of dogs.
