"Mostly they are worried about the dog developing an immunity before being exposed to many other dogs.
And of course it helps that if there is any adverse reaction to shots, that the dog is at home, not being groomed where the groomer could fall under suspicion. "
That's exactly right I think. Between the tenderness at the injection site, and the possible reaction (or that the dog might not be at 100% for feeling well after a vaccine, and then to go into a groom and that is also stressful sometimes, they might react differently as well). For me I give 2 days, for those 3 reasons.
