Hi. I would suggest going to A&E today although if you can't get the prophylactic treatment until tomorrow that still would not be a concern
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Lee--can I ask why the poor rating? Was there more information you needed?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I know A&E . I expected more options.
I had more help from nhs helpline .
I wAnted to know where locally I could go on a Sunday . Or any information that might put my mind at rest .

No problem Lee. And I can continue until you're fully satisfied, I just ask that you ask me more questions first instead of rating my answer poorly. First off, the chances that the one encounter actually infected you are very small but not zero. If not A&E then a walk in clinic could also begin the vaccination process. That said, so long as the prophylaxis is begun within five days of the encounter it's still effective.
