Question Vaccinations...Can you give the Rabies vaccine at the same time as the others?

My dog needs his Rabies, Parvo and Bordetella vaccines renewed.

He is due on the 23rd and so that's the date I made the appointment for. However, I've been reading a bit and I noticed that some people suggest NOT getting the Rabies vaccine within at least 2 weeks of any other vaccinations.

Now I'm not sure what to do. Do I go to my appointment on the 23rd and only get him Rabies, and then wait a few weeks and get him Parvo and Bordetella? Do I wait on the Rabies instead? I'm just now sure I'm worried about waiting on any of the shots (especially Parvo)

ANY help would be greatly appreciated. What do you suggest? What would you do?

Some people say yes, some say no. I say conditionally yes.

How old is the dog?

He's about 1.5-2 years old. We got him last January from a rescue and they weren't sure of his age but estimated he was around 1 or so.

You can of course, but it really is not a good idea.

The Rabies vaccine has a high incidence of reactions and so an overwhelmed immune system has the potential to increase the chance of reaction.

Of course Dante doesn't get anything but rabies (Bordetella if I'm going to board because the kennel requires it) and hasn't since his 1 year boosters. He'll be 6 in March

His titiers have all come back that he's protected for Parvo and Distemper.

If I was going to give the other vacinnes to Dante there is no way I'd give them at the same time
