Question Vaccinations for my Filly?

I have had a 7-month old filly for almost a month now, and I was trying to find out what shots/vaccinations she will need? I know that she was wormed the week before I got her, but I don't know about how the mare was vaccinated while she was pregnant or if she was. I was hoping that someone with foal knowledge or vet advice could help me out? I'll be talking to my vet soon as well about it. I'm only 16 and this is the first baby I've had to take care of completely on my own!
Thanks!!

Foal Vaccination Chart


DISEASE: VACCINATION:
Botulism Organism:Clostridium botulinum. Organism is ingested or absorbed through wounds. Causes neurologic disease.

DOSAGE:
3-dose series at 30-day intervals
Annually thereafter

NOTES: Mares in areas of high risk (mostly Kentucky and Ohio) should be vaccinated 1 month prior to foaling to prevent shaker foal syndrome, a neurologic disease in newborn foals.
Encephalomyelitis
(EEE,WEE,VEE) Insect-bourne neurologic disease that is fatal.

DOSAGE:
First Dose: 3-4 months of age
Second Dose: 4-5 months of age
Annually thereafter

NOTES: Mandatory vaccination. Booster every 6 months in risky areas. Should be administered in spring just before insects appear. Humans can become infected if not vaccinated.
Tetanus Organism:Clostridium tetani. Organism enters wounds and releases toxins resulting in neurologic disease. Can be fatal.

DOSAGE:
First Dose: 3-4 months of age
Second Dose: 4-5 months of age
Annually thereafter

NOTES: Re-vaccinate if wounded 6 months or more after most recent booster. Tetanus organism is present in every region.
Influenza Respiratory infection. Signs: fever, depression, nasal discharge, cough.

DOSAGE:
First Dose: 6 months of age
Second Dose: 7 months of age
Third Dose: 8 months of age
Every 3 months thereafter

NOTES: Producing & maintaining an effective vaccine is difficult, since there are many strains of the virus.
Strangles Organism:Streptocuccus equi. Respiratory infection. Signs: fever, nasal discharge, abscessed lymph nodes under lower jaw.

DOSAGE:
First Dose: 3 months of age
Second Dose: 4 months of age

Potomac Horse Fever Orgamism:Ehrlichia risticii. Severe diarrhea with high rate of fatality.

DOSAGE:
First Dose: 3 months of age
Second Dose: 4 months of age
Annually thereafter

NOTES: Only in eastern half of US. Vaccinate every 4 months in high risk areas. Annually where risk is low. Vaccine is incomplete and short-lived, but vaccinated animals have a lower mortality rate and less severe signs with the disease.
Rabies Neurologic disease. 100% fatal.

DOSAGE:
First Dose: 3-4 months of age
Second Dose: 4-5 months of age
Annually thereafter

DOSAGE:
First Dose: 6 months of age
Second Dose: 7 months of age

NOTES: EHV-4 causes respiratory disease. EHV-1 causes abortion in pregnant mares, neurologic disease in mature horses, and respiratory disease. This virus is very widespread.
NOTE: New vaccines are created frequently. Please check with your veterinarian for the most updated vaccines and health care schedules. Ask your vet about the new West Nile Virus vaccine, and the EPM vaccine. This chart is supplied only as an example of a Foal's Vaccination Schedule. Your horse's vaccination schedule should be tailored specifically to your horse's needs by your veterinarian.
