1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes
The "badness" of smoking remains the same, with or without rabies shots, so one should not smoke.
However, if a person was out in the wild when bit by a rabid animal, and did not get the rabies shots started until it was too late, he will likely die of rabies. In that case, having a smoke before rabies symptoms start, should not cause any additional harm.

In brief: No
Not any worse than smoking without rabies shots.
There is no interactions that i know of. Rabies is almost uniformly fatal without getting the injections, so if you were exposed, get the injections. Whether you smoke or not should not make a difference as far as i know. I have had smoking patients get these injections without having any particular problems.
