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!
