The problem is that the vaccine only addresses a few of the many strains, so if you think it's OK to let your dog drink from puddles because they have had the vaccine, you are fooling yourself. A chlorinated pool shouldn't be an issue.
Lepto can be treated (and cured) with antibiotics if caught early. If your dog is sick, don't wait around, go to the vet. It's the people who THINK their dog "couldn't possibly have Lepto, because they had the vaccine" that end up with a dead dog. JMHO.
