Don't count on it: The protection after rabies vaccination gradually decreases, so even if you've been vaccinated a booster series of 2 doses is recommended if you have been exposed. That said, it is not clear that you have been exposed. Dogs are not as likely as other animals to have rabies, and rabies from scratches (nonbites) is rare, but I would check with your health department to estimate the risk in your area. ...Read more
Wash First: Clean the scratch with soap and water for a good 5 minutes--then head to emergency room. Even vaccinated you may still need rabies vaccine, just not as many doses and just no rabies immune globulin. While dogs are less risky as rabies carriers they are making a comeback in some areas. This is a decision that will have to be made at a local level, with the involvement of your animal control office. ...Read more

Rabies Vaccination: Immunosuppressive drugs and corticosteroids may reduce the immune response to vaccines. Also chloroquine may reduce the antibody response to intradermal rabies vaccine. The intramuscular route should be used. Vaccine response with low CD4 counts, in people with HIV is also poor. May need double dose or multiple site intradermal injection. ...Read more

I had a rabies vaccine in 2004 then had a booster in 2005 as I had contact (not bitten) with a rabid animal. Would this booster still have validity?
? validity?: Your question is not clear. The expected protection of a primary rabies series is at least 2 years, with high risk occupations advised to get antibody titers at that point to see if a booster is needed. Your booster should have benefit and few would ever suggest a full series with that history. ...Read more
