Since stray dogs will not be vaccinated it is advisable to get vaccinated after dog bite and complete the course.This will avoid future complications like hydrophobia(fear of water) which is commonly seen after many years.Caution must be take when the bite is deep which will involve oozing of blood where the chances of transmission of virus is high(in case the dog is rabid).Take care.Hope this anwers your query.
