    Unhappy Concern for rabies: question about the vaccine

    So I have a question which hopefully the NMP community could answer:

    Last year I decided to have my pre-exposure vaccine against rabies as a preparation against future exposures (incase), and this was last July 2018.
    What made me have my vaccinations was because last year, I got worried about rabies that I decided to have my injections for a peace of mind.

    However last June 2018, I went out to buy some stuff for my school project but it was really raining hard, so I decided to take shelter under a nearby roof. I was waiting for the rain to calm down that time, along with some few people who were also beside me.

    Recently I got worried: what if a stray dog/cat licked the small wound on my right leg while I was standing (the wound btw was this: http://www.nomorepanic.co.uk/showthread.php?t=218554).

    I didn't felt any licking or something with a stray that time, but what if it's because it was raining hard that time and my legs were soaked with puddles and rainwater

    I did had my 4 booster shots last January and March 2019 because my unvaccinated pet pup bit me twice (altho it's not much of a concern).

    My question is: Should I be concerned about what happened last year?
    also: Can rabid stray animals even go out in the rain?

    What!?! This makes no sense. There is no way within a year if you had rabies, you would not have symptoms.

    the wound was in my lower right leg and i was standing while waiting for the rain to calm down, along with other people (note i didnt have any rabies vaccines that time), so i was worrying what if the incubation is long? it has been 10 months as of today and because of my hypochondria, im super worried.

    yeah i know what you're gonna say, but anyway, sorry because my health anxiety is just 10000x worse that whenever a worry would die down, another one would rise again

    only once and i never did again... he's a very workaholic man and it's hard to discuss personal things like this to a closed person like him
