I was bit by an animal and started a course of Verorab/Rabipur while traveling in Thailand. How can I finish the course in the US?

While traveling in Thailand, I was bitten by an animal and went to a doctor to get rabies shots, where I was prescribed a course of Verorab/Rabipur, to be administered on Day 0, Day 3, Day 7, and Day 30. I completed the first 3 shots in Thailand and have a few weeks before I need to do the last shot (Day 30). However, to my understanding, neither Verorab nor Rabipur are used in the United States.
What's the best course of action? Is there a doctor or clinic who can provide this vaccine in the NYC area? Or should I just go to a GP (I don't have one) and explain the situation? Thanks.
