Rabies vaccination schedule

Patient: Year ago i was previously immunized , later i was licked by a dog , i had two doses again 15 days later i was licked by stray dog’? do i need another dose

 

 

Doctor: HelloThank you posting your query on “Ask the Doctor”Licking on intact skin by apparently healthy dog h ave zero chances of rabies infection. However licking on broken (injured/ ulcerated) skin by rabid (mad) dog warrants immunization.You have taken full course of anti rabies vaccination and repeat 2 doses before 15 days. You may not require anti rabies protection for coming one year period.Relax.Wish you a good health
