Thank you for asking question on health care magic.
You need not worry if you have missed the dose of OPV
You can give the missed dose at a latter date.
Polio has been eradicated from India already.
Hence you need not worry.
Hope this answer will serve your purpose
Please feel free to ask any more queries if required
Take care
