In brief: Rabies vaccine

You need to see a doctor or go to your health department asap and get vaccinated against rabies.
The dog should be quarantined and watched carefully and if any symptoms develop it may need to be sacrificed and examined for presence of the rabies virus. This is a life-threatening disease. Please go immediately and get managed now.
