I would set up a little area with either a pen or baby gates and with the open crate, her food and water and the puppy pad. At this age, it is not fair to have them locked in a crate as they have to pee and poo very often and it will get her in the habit of going in her crate. At six weeks they have no control over when they have to go so you won't be able to really start potty training her for a little while yet.
I have an eight week old puppy and I have her trained to use a litter box. She is very good about going in it. Right now she is too young and it is just too cold for her to go outside.
Even if they did give her a shot, at six weeks it probably would not be very much use as she would have still had immunity from her mother.
