Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Yes she should again have the vaccination.

If in the last exposure she completes the whole vaccination then only booster doses are required now.

Hope I answered your query.

Take care.

Hi, Since she had taken a full course of anti-rabies vaccines just six months back so at this don't take this tt again. 2ndly scratches in no way produces rabies because these viruses only found in the canine teeth of these animals.
