It can't hurt, but I would check with the vet beforehand to know how to time it and what dose to give.
I understand why you are nervous about the rabies vaccine since you have had other animals with adverse reactions, but I will take this as an opportunity to remind everyone that adverse reactions to vaccines are rare in people and in our companion animals. Without immunization we would still be dying in droves from small pox, polio and measles and we wouldn't ever let our dogs meet other dogs for fear of rabies and distemper.
I hope it all goes smoothly for you and your pup. Javelin is scheduled to get his rabies first one year dose on September 5th (Lily's birthday, hopefully she will give good luck).
