Thanks for your question.

I am assuming you are referring to the rabies injection. If the attack by the dog was unprovoked, this is appropriate. Also, in your country rabies is of a higher incidence than in the U.S.

Call the Medical Provider that is giving you the injections and see what they want done. I believe they will just resume the injections.
