Hi An_251629,

Did you see my (lengthy) reply when you posted this question a week or so ago? Or did you re-post it because you want another opinion?

I'm guessing you're asking about a 3-year rabies vaccine. If so, the 3-year vaccine lasts three years and doesn't need to be boostered until then. (Although I'm a feline specialist, even I know the answer to that one!)
