Hi doctor,

I got a post-exposure rabies vaccine. I have extreme health anxiety. My mind says me that the nurse forgot my day 7 vaccine and only day 0, 3, 14 has been taken. To see whether I am fully protected, I got a serology test. But now I am afraid whether these results may be inaccurate. What happens if I become exposed to live rabies within two weeks of getting my vaccines? What to do if my body did not kill the pathogens? Can I have an unbound pathogen in my blood sample and antibodies multiply from it?
