You can rest assured, since you are vaccinated, you have no chance of getting Rabies by this bite of street dog. Once you get over this anxiety, even pain and headache will go. Good luck.

Thanks for the query
As you have already completed the vaccination course and dog is still alive, there is no question of rabies.
Now your headache may be due any other reason. Consult your doctor for proper evaluation and dont worry about rabies.
I hope this answers your query well
Wish you good health
With regards
