How long does rabies vaccination protection last?

I was bitten by a stray dog in end of Feb 2023 and I took complete does of 3 vaccination along with a tetanus shot. Now a stray car scratch my hand in May 2023 and there was a minor tear but no blood came out. Should I get complete course of vaccinations again or my 2.5 month old vaccination course will still protect me? Or I should get a one booster shot ?
