Rabies question

I play with street dogs and they are fairly clean and enthusiatic. I had a rabipur 5 shot course in November 2015 after a scratch from a street dog. I today, I was scratched again while playing with them. I did not bleed but this cutaneous injury is there. Do I need to take shots again?

First and foremost clean the affected area with soap and running water....as you have completed full course recently and you belong to category one by described history you will not require full course of rabipur vaccine you just need to take 2 doses one day 0 and on day 3...Consult nearest physician they will guide you further.
