Which vaccines?: I am not sure what you mean by pep vaccines? I think you mean "pet vaccines" Which ones were included? If you recently received rabies vaccination, your risk of rabies is greatly reduced. If the cat bite was 8 months ago, it is highly unlikely you will contract rabies from that bite now!
