Unhappy Dogs lick can dangerious for rabies infected?

Hi, I'm from India and where I live there is some street dog. Here is maximum dog die for reason rabies and thats why I scare to touch dogs but now I'm very scared and truly very scared because I give them food for eating and for that reason 1 dog always follow me and try to lick my foot but 1 can stop him but some time he do for 3-4 sec and even I don't know when he lick but 1day i see minor cut in foot for my reason. 2day the dog die for rabies and now I'm very scared, I thinking if the dog lick my small cute area for 4-5sec then I'm infected for rabies? the incident happen hopefully 20days ago. If it happen then I'm going to die? If I take vaccination then am I safe? But the problem is doctor don't give me prescription for vaccination cause I can't show them for bite area and other medical shop don't give me the vaccination without doctors prescription. I take vaccination 5-6months ago, if I take vaccine right now then there is any chance for side effect? Please give me some advise very soon. I'm very scared and I'm going to die??? :-(
