Undergoing the rabies treatment. Do I need to go for rabies shot again since I had a cat bite again?

I adopted a street cat a few weeks ago. A week after it had its rabies shot, it bit me. I am undergoing the 3 rabies treatment (I ve had d07, d07 and I will have d28 next week). The cat looks fine. But when I was spraying her for fleas today, she bit me again. Do I need to go for another round of 3 shots or am I covered? I currently live in Morocco . Street cats are more prone to rabies (but like I said, I ve had her for about 3 weeks now and she s not showing signs of being infected). And finding doctors who speak english here is not always easy.

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
As you are on anti rabies shots schedule and already took two shots of rabies, there is no need to go again for another schedule of antirabies vaccines.
And take the d28 shot of rabies shot and complete the schedule as per the doctor advise.
Take TETANUS TOXOID shot if you are not up to date for it.
Hope I have answered your query.
