This depends upon which vaccine you are asking about. The vaccines used for pet animals (dogs, cats, horses) are a single shot, boosted annually or tri-annually depending upon the specific vaccine given.

In humans the pre-exposure prophylaxis vaccine is a series of three shots. The post-exposure prophylaxis vaccine is a series of five shots.
