HI

Greetings from Dr.Divakara.P
Thanks for posting your query.

Apart from Rabies vaccination you need to get Tetanus Vaccine too ( 1 shot ). If the dog is alive 12 days after the bite and is not behaving violently then there is no need of further Rabies vaccination also ( but you need to be sure that it is the same dog )

Hope this information was useful to you. '
Any clarifications feel free to ask.
