welcome to HealthcareMagic,
If this is the first vaccination then the schedule is OK.But there was no need to give T.T as addition as she already took DPT at 5 years.

Hi,thanks for query.You have done the right thing.Please to be on safer side complete the course of 5 injections.If the dog is available for observation and during 10 day observation period the dog does not show any signs of rabies,you can discuss this with your doctor and can give her only 3 injections on day 0(day of bite),day 3 and day 21.
wishing her good health.
