Contact with a stray Dog
Yesterday, I was trying to give some food to a stray dog, his tongue touched my finger and some saliva was on my finger nail, Though I washed it well & that dog seemed normal that time. Should I be worried & get a vaccination shot?

Normally there is no need of vaccination if the skin. is not broken and you can observe the dog for p 14 which cannot be done in this case I would advice you should take 3 doses.of the vaccine on 0 3

No, no need of vaccination if dog only licked your finger. Vaccination is taken if scratch or bleeding occurs. Its good you washed hand thoroughly, it was the only needed thing.
