Hello there.  I can understand your concern.. No i do not think that you need any vaccination. You have already taken full course of vaccination in the recent past. Its immunity will last you. Clean the wound with a antiseptic liquid. Its a minor scratch. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
