Urgent Rabies Question

Patient : If my friend's dog that was up to date on its rabies vaccination killed a rabid raccoon and then licked my friends mouth and face, will he be infected with rabies? The night this happened my friends shared drinks with him and then I shared a cigarette with one of those kids who shared a drink with the friend who was licked about a week later. should I be concerned that the virus could have potentially been spread through my friend that shared a drink with my other friend and then shared a cigarette with me? after sharing drinks with some of my friends the friend who was licked by the dog was vaccinated a few days later.
