Ummm, wash it out. Bandage if necessary and keep an eye out for signs of infection.

The dog is vaccinated so you can't get rabies.  You can only get rabies if you are bitten by an animal who already has rabies.  Just clean it up and put a little neosporin - antibiotic ointment - on it.  Cat scratches are actually dirtier and more dangerous that dog claws.
