Hi!
Yes, once you have started the rabies vaccine immunization schedule, you are protected against subsequent bites during the time of immunization. However, you may have the extend the immunization schedule for the full course of four shots of post exposure vaccination program. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
