Exclamation Rabies PEP...again....

I had gone through rabies PEP in early December 2011 for an exposure and received RIG and 4 vaccine doses on days 0,3,7, and 14 and was fine didn't worry not a care in the world or anything. Well, this past week I was recently exposed again to another animal, this time only obtaining scratches but was still scared. It has only been around 3 months since I got my initial Rabies PEP and they wanted me to get 2 ADDITIONAL boosters!!

I mean is this safe? I keep reading up on all the side effects (mild/moderate/severe) and keep freaking out, thinking I can get Variant CJD from the injections because I've had 6 total in less than 4 months!!! I am also freaking out because I have a red, warm streak from where my last injection was. (((
