Is there a danger of having too many rabies vaccines?

Is there a danger of having too many rabies vaccines? I got a scratch (not bleeding or wound ) a month ago in zimbabwe so i decided to get a rabies vaccine when i got to a private clinic in botswana 2 weeks later. I got the second one on day 3. My problem is that the first was a general anti-rabies vaccine (don t know if it was PVRV or PCECV) whilst the second one was Veroab (so PVRV). SHould I get a verorab again or is the first one OK? I m worried it could prove to be ineffective.
