Brief Answer:
Please give additional information

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted your history of having bitten by a mole yesterday.
You have taken tet Vac.
There are conflicting evidence that at some places in the world mole is kept out of the rabies concern like Minnesota, there looks to be no problems while at other places it is kept in the low-risk category about causation of rabies.
Hence a small worry.
Please consult your Regular Doctor/ Govt Hospital to see the wound and to get a prescription of an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicines if required on inspection.
Please give additional information.
What was the opinion given by your Doctor about rabies vaccination?
Where has the bitten and how is the wound at the present?
Post a picture of the wound, if possible.
Which area do you stay?
