I do not think you need any treatment further for previous dog bite. But if you are at risk of further dog bites like you job is to handle the dogs, or a veterinarian, in a lab, then you can take injection for prophylaxis.

Rabies infection is caused by the rabies virus. The virus is spread through the saliva of infected animals. Infected animals can spread the virus by biting another animal or a person. Once a rabies infection is established, there's no effective treatment. You may need to discuss it over a call to understand the importance of a rabies vaccine and duration of it's immunity.

Rabies is a virus that is usually spread by the bite or scratch of an animal. By the time the symptoms appear, it is generally too late to save the patient. Since you have already done vaccination so chances are less. The immunity acquired from the vaccine can last a long time. The longevity of rabies vaccine ranges between 3 to 10 years depending on the booster dose that is given. For example, to prevent rabies, rabies vaccinations are given three times, on the day of the first injection and on day 7 and day 21 after the first injection. For those who have a high exposure of rabies, it is suggested to receive 1 booster dose once a year and every 3 to 5 years.
