Hi Oslen,
Thanks for writing in to Heathcare Magic!
No you are not too late but if you have douts then it is worth while to get immunized because rabies if onset occurs, is universally fatal.
Rabies develops after fairly long time.
The duration depends on the site of bite and severity of bite.
It can vary from 10days to upto 3years.
You get the immunisation as soon as possible it is not late still.
I hope the advise would be helpful for you.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
