It is best to get the shots as early as possible within 24hrs.however if there is no wound or bleeding just clean the area with antiseptics as first aid and( if that dog is in your locality you can observe for salivation or rabid behaviour of the dog).if its just rash and no bite wound then you need not worry further if any minor scratch present you should visit a doctor.
