Question: Hi,

I was scratched by a cat 4 days ago. I took my first anti-rabies vaccine on December 7. But, it wasn't injected properly. Now, here is my question: Can I restart the vaccination from tomorrow? Technically, tomorrow should be my second dose but since I want to restart my vaccination schedule, tomorrow will be my first schedule.

So, is there any harm in it? Please suggest. I seriously want to start afresh from tomorrow.
