Thank you for your query,
The time schedule of rabies vaccine is formed t mainatin the production of higher titre of antibodies against the rabies virus.
Still you can take the last dose of antirabies vaccine.
But I advise you to consult your Physician or near Rabies clinic immediately and take the advise.
Hope I have answered your query.
