Thanks for writing to us.

Relax, there is nothing to worry.

Polio drops given by government are in addition to routine immunization.
You can give it on next cycle.

Complete his immunization as per schedule .Next due is Dpt booster at 18 months of age against diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough) and tetanus and he will get his polio drops at that time too.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any other question I would be glad to help.

God bless.
