Hi, Greetings. First of all you are requested not to name doctors in your questions on practo consult. Secondly - you will certainly not get rabies now due to a bite in 2002. Thirdly - even if a dog bites u today - since u have taken so many injections- the chances of u getting rabies are lesser than the rest of the population. Please DONT keep going and taking vaccine randomly. take care, Warm regards Dr G S Mittal
