According to me, there is no need for vaccination as your dog is completely vaccinated.

Dr.  Divakara MD

Hi Just observe the dog for 10 days , if nothing happens to dog then no need of vaccination to your child. If your dog dies in this 10 days then you need to vaccinate your child.

Dr.  Ashok Kumar MD

Take the vaccination as soon as possible. Thanks
