Is A Booster shot necessary?

My little chihuahua is 2 years old and had her annual vaccination a few weeks ago. It had been over a year since her previous vaccination, so the vet told me she needs to get a booster shot within a month of this vaccination to strengthen the vaccination.

My dog really hates getting shots and I don't want to put her through any more unless they are absolutely mandatory for her health....is it really necessary to do the booster shot, or will she be ok with just the vaccine?

Thanks.
