Rabies doubt, a street dog bite

Patient: A dog bite,though its just scratch and no blood was there,i consulted a doctor and he said i don’t need any shot,but i am worried,its been seven days,should i take the injection

Doctor: HelloWelcome to Ask The Doctor.If there is just a Scratch then you are at low risk of contracting Rabies.However, i personally advise my patients to get rabies vaccination to be sure.I hope it helps.Stay Healthy.
