In brief: Yes and no

Although the Azithromycin will take care of the current chlamydia infection, you can get re-infected if you continue to have unprotected intercourse with a partner who is still infected.
Your partner(s) should be evaluated and treated if necessary. Besides abstinence, condom use is the only form of contraception that prevents sexually transmitted diseases. Oral sex is lower risk sex, low is not no.

In brief: Low

Chance is low as the zithromycin level is therapeutic for 10 days.
It is best if you and your partner get treated at the same time to prevent reinfection.
