Brief Answer:
Only booster doses would be required

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Greetings
Welcome to Health care magic.

Since you have already had post-exposure prophylaxis you would now require only two booster doses on days 0 and 3. However, Proper wound toileting and cleaning should be done.

Do let me know if you need any additional information or clarification.

Take care.

Best regards
