[ Infectious Diseases ] Open Question : Could I possibly get rabies?

My dog killed a rat today and earlier today I also gave him a piece of food and his teeth kind of “scraped” up against my fingers. It didn’t leave a mark but I do have a little teeny scratch (not from the dog) and a tiny hangnail. I have severe anxiety and I’d like to know if I can contract rabies from this type of contact, I washed my hand almost immediately after but I’m having panic attacks and my parents laughed when I suggested it, my dog may have not been bitten by the rat I’m not exactly sure .. IF I do have the possibility of rabies is it too late to get the vaccination a day later? Thank you for responses
