Scratched by cat

I was scratched by a pet Persian cat with his paw claws and blood came out. The cat is immune so do I need to take injection, or show to doctor?

Hi
You are saying that the cat is immunized. But, as the cat roams around, there is a possibility of infection.
Hope you had washed the region with soap and running water. If so there is less chance of infection.
If you get any symptoms of inflammation, fever or pain in the region, consult a doctor.
You can treat the wound just as any open wound
