Is there any need to take the Rabipur vaccine if you already had it before ?

hello, i have a 3 yrs old son and he has been injected Rabipur on Oct 17 2010 and now again my pet dog scrached him on his hand and cheek. Please let me know if we have to again see a doctor for the same. My dog has been given rabies injection last month.

If you have completed Rabipur schedule , you dont have to worry.You should visit your Pediatrician for Tetanus booster as early as possible.

Clean the wound with antiseptic and see your Doctor.Depending on the extent of injury , he would advise you.
Take care.
