Default Bordetella (Kennel Cough) Vaccine?

So, there is a group trying to get a dog park put together within my region. Not sure if I'll ever use it, so this isn't really a dog park debate, but they have this thing written up that they need proof of vaccination, even bordetella.

Since both my dogs came from shelters, I'm guessing that the shelter gave them a vaccine, though I'd have to check their papers back home.

To the best of my knowledge, Kennel Cough isn't fatal. I've known several dogs who have gotten it, and with the exception of the cough, they behaved normally. No change in appetite or energy. It seemed to me like the biggest problem with it is that it's transmitted easily from dog to dog.

I've heard awful things about the vaccine, though mostly from people who are anti-over vaccination anyways.

So do you guys vaccinate against KC? Why or why not?
