Rabies vaccination

3 months back my neighbour's dog bit me. There was teeth marks on my leg and slight bleeding. When I consulted a physician, he gave me tetanus and said not to worry. Now I am getting scared. So after 3 months i.e if I take rabies vaccination now, will I be fine? Please answer my question. Thank you

Hi there.. usually rabies will start showing symptoms within 1-2months.. so now I don't think you should worry about rabies.. but since you said that bleeding from wound was there, I suggest you take rabies vaccine as some rare cases rabies might not show symptoms till a year.. if the dog which bit you is still alive and healthy then you needn't have to worry..
