Hello Yuson and Welcome
It is OK for you. You need not to take the vaccination again either of rabies nor of tetanus. But you need to take the proper care of the wound and protect it from any kind of infection.
Wash the wound properly with antiseptic lotion or water.
Apply antibiotic cream at the site.
Take a course of antibiotic to prevent infection.
Clean the wound daily with antiseptic lotion.

Hope this will help you.
Best Wishes
