Yesterday I play with my dog and it accidentally scratch/bite my hand make me have a 0.5cm of wound. The wound is small (0.1cm x 0.5cm) and the wound is superficial, it’s starting scab today. My dog is look healthy so far.

Do I need to inject rabies vaccine? I am worry about even 0.1cm x 0.5cm wound will make me get rabies and die.
