Thanks for the query

The vaccination done for rabies is always as preventive measure that is to assure that one do not gets rabies as it is having 100% mortality. The rabies is transmitted by by the actual bite of the rabid dog and human gets infected only through wound. So, there are almost no chances of human to human transmission therefore you can have wine more than 2 glasses as it have no association with that and you can swim when ever you want. just take of your wound so that it do not gets infected if your are bitten by dog

If you still have some queries, feel free to ask
