Thanks for your question.
You are not vaccinated for life and will need more shots if again bitten by a rabid animal. Even those who take pre-exposure prophylaxis need booster doses.
Please rate the answer with a five star positive rating.
I would like to add my opinion here.
According to the CDC, a person who has been previously vaccinated for rabies and is bitten again still will require two further doses of rabies vaccine i.e. one right away and another one on the third day.
A person who has never been vaccinated will obviously require rabies immune globulin along with 4 doses of the rabies vaccine as well i.e. one of the same day the next ones on the 3rd, 7th and 14th days.
