My dog has had the kennel cough (Bordatella)
vaccine and still came down with kennel cough
at another facility. Do they really need it?

Yes! In Most cases the vaccine is very effective, but just like the human flu vaccination, it is only 85% effective. There are different strains of virus that your dog might otherwise never get, but for some reason, perhaps a lowered immune from a recent illness, will cause them to contract a strain not covered by the vaccination.
