I'd let it be. You don't know how much of vaccine your kids got actually worked. Better to have too little than too much.

And yeah have her titres checked

I would do like pp suggested have tests run to check her immunity levels and have them check to see if she is even affected. Sounds like it was a generic letter to everyone and it is upto you to call for an investigation. Could be worrying about nothing. But if they come back with certain ones have her immunity check then decide from there. I wouldn't re vax unless she had an immunity issue to those items. Also check when boosters are due. I think 4 is when they get boosters to some that may just bump her back to ok.

I agree with PP about checking titers. When you're talking about needed to re-do this many shots, a single blood draw to check immunities would probably be easier and perhaps save your LO some discomfort. If you do find that some of the vaccinations were sub-optimal and want to re-vaccinate, have the ped use the CDC's catch-up schedule. At age 3, the number of doses are different for some vaccines, and as a PP mentioned, there should be boosters already on the schedule between age 4-6.
