I don't think you have to worry about it. You were bitten  a long ago. So I don't think anything is necessary now.

Hi there...incubation period of rabies is 3 to 8 weeks... but rare cases has been seen as early as 4 days and latest like 1year..if you were bitten by rabid animal virus would have entered your body by now there is no use of vaccination now,since you are normal it may be non rabid animal...you can take vaccination it will act as preexposure prophylaxis... Regards.
