No it should not cause any problem. Can be given later.

Thanks for writing to us.

Delaying any scheduled vaccination only exposes the child to the risk of contracting that particular disease for longer time. Taking measles vaccination late by one month does not affect the efficacy or potency of the vaccine. Try not repeat this in future and be careful about the right timings of vaccination.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
