Sir. There is no medical evidence where there is possibility of developing rabies after 12 years of dog bite.the rabies vaccine only kills the virus before it enters the nerve ending, if it has already entered nerve endings, there is no cure and the person usually will have symptoms within few days and death will be the only end result since there is no cure once the person gets infected.so clearly you don't have any symptoms,so no need to worry.you could have atleast enquired about the vaccines and their uses before taking it for so many years And based on the history you have given I think, you have developed anxiety and panic about developing rabies, so I kindly suggest you to do daily meditation, yoga and swimming to destress. If you are still not satisfied kindly consult a physician.
