You might want to give them a shot of Multi-Min.

A little thin but look strong. Give them a few days to rest and settle in then run them through the chute to worm and vaccinate. They'll be fine.

A week to 10 days nothing but all the good grass hay they can eat. Get their gut working good. Shot of multi-min. Then after a week or so, maybe a worming but I really would do fecals and see. They might just need some roughage to get them filled up first. Any vaccinations would be killed virus.

The multi min is what I'd give too and instead of the mineral block, get a good loose mineral or a good mineral tub. If you go with the tub, usually a salt block is needed too since most tubs don't have salt included.
