Dog bit me, what vaccines to take?
The pet dog (German Shepherd, 3year old) of my neighbour bit me 4 hours ago. Fifteen minutes after the bite, some blood accumulated at the bite marks. I had washed immediately with water, soap and dettol. I haven't taken any ARV in the past. What vaccines should I take? If I take the vaccine by tomorrow afternoon, will it be okay?
