In brief: Possibly

Depends on what bit you and the level of risk of rabies in your community.
If it is still a problem in the wildlife of your area and you were bitten by a credible source of rabies, it is worth your while to get another shot. The alternative is a 100% fatal disease. No has yet survived a rabies infection and all the gory details are unfortunately true.
