Rabies risks: Dogs primarily are responsible for transmission of rabies to people. It would be extremely rare for a rabbit to transmit rabies. In addition, your rabbit is not sick so the risk is essentially zero. Not sure "why" someone gave u a rabies vaccine shot for that-- I don't think u need any more treatment. Try not to worry about this!
