Shots: You're seeing an infectious disease specialist, someone with years of specialty training beyond a Medical School. Why would you seek opinion on this site from a urologist or an Orthodontist or a GP? If you do not have trust in your Specialists training and experience, seek 2nd opinion from a different infectious disease specialist.

Yes: I wish everybody's questions were as easy to answer. You got bit again, you get more injections. I'm sorry about the second bite but this is the right choice. Please ignore any "scare" stuff on the internet about rabies shots -- people make stuff up.
