Can someone please explain this to me?

I took Sydney to get her first vaccinations earlier this week. I was then told by my vet that I should not allow her to have any contact with other dogs until after she has her second shots in 1 month from now. This part is not what I am confused about.

Here is my issue: I have another dog at home and was told that I should not allow the neighbour’s dog to come over and play with Spencer because you never know what dog she might have had contact with before coming over. Ok, so then Spencer really shouldn’t have any contact with other dogs for 1 month as well?

Also, I was told that it is ok for me to walk both of the dogs, just make sure that they don’t come in contact with another dog.

What if I come in contact with other dogs like at the pet store or something? Can I be a carrier of a disease as well?

Am I supposed to quarantine our whole family for the next month? How strict should I be on this? I know that Sydney can have NO contact with other dogs but what about the rest of us? :confused:
