How Many Dosages Of Anti Rabies Vaccination Should Be Taken?

Last Dec 2010, I completed my anti-rabies vaccine after bitten by my dog. I had the same dog given her yearly anti-rabies vaccine yesterday and today, after feeding her.. She bit me. Should I still need to get vaccinated with anti-rabies vaccine? What is the validity of the anti rabies vaccine given me last Dec 2010?

Hello
Welcome to HCM

You will be identified as Re Exposure as per the WHO classification.

You require two doses of anti rabies vaccine on days 0 and 3.

The previous shots of anti rabies will give protection for at least 5 years.
Thank you.
