Had rabies vaccination post a pet dog bite, scratch on the finger due to dog's teeth, dog well vaccinated. Can I take alcohol?

Hi, I was bitten by my pet dog yesterday night, ie on 20/6/2012. I had two shots of anti rabies injection on first visit. I still have three more visits. My dogs teeth Hit my index finger and i suffered from scratch . I saw just a drop of blood oozing out. I think i came into contact with dogs saliva. My dog is vaccinated two months ago. Can i take alcohol. Thanks, Sam

Welcome to HCM
I beleive you have taken a dose of immunoglobulin and vaccine on first need to take two more doses of the vaccine on day 3 after first dose and third on day 7.
If your dog is fine this is sufficient but in case the dog dies within 10 days of the bite you will have to take 5 total doses ie. on day 14 and day 28[additional] ie 0,3,7,14,28.
There is no harm in consuming as long as you do not get bitten by the dog again!
Take care.
