Brief Answer:
You don't need any boosters now.

Detailed Answer:
Hi. Welcome to Healthcare Magic. I am Dr Anshul Varshney for your help.
See once completely vaccinated you don't need any re vaccination till 7-10 years.
However following a dog bite, you would need only 2 doses that is on Day 0 and Day 3.
Since you have received them you don't need to worry at all.
I would recommend you to consult your Psychiatrist to add Tab Flupenthixol to your regimen.
I hope it helps you.
If you have any further query please ask me.
