Hi there!
Generally bites with rats usually do not require antirabies vaccine. You can take a shot of tetanus toxoid. Take care of the local wound and your doctor may prescribe you  a short course of antibiotic preferably  penicillin derivatives .Rat bite may sometimes cause rat bite fever characterized by fever with chills, rash and joint pains. It is better to take some good antibiotic to prevent it after consulting your doctor, ARV is preferably given in the deltoid region and gluteal region is not recommended because this area is rich in fat which hampers the absorption of the vaccine antigen and also interferes with the process of generation of adequate antibody response. Hope it helps. Do keep us posted.
Take care and good luck.
