The one you got did not, you're right. It's three vaccines in one bottle. But you CAN get them seperately, measles vaccine in a bottle, mumps in a bottle, and ruebella in a bottle. But for most, they are manufactured as one vaccine. They don't send them as three vaccines and them combine them in the needle. Some come as three seperates and would take three seperate needles. kwim?

We don't vaccinate, we kept our sons intact, we use cloth diapers, we co-sleep, we extended RF, we breastfeed, but we watch too much tv and I totally dig plastic! Everyone has their issues, lol.

Re: MMR separate?

I asked my pedi a few years ago if they can order separate MMR for my children, and he said he can, but won't. I delayed with DD#2, and will probably skip it for Cassie unless something changes.

Re: MMR separate?


i am a RN a a peds office. you CAN order them seperately. they each require a presciption. you may need to call around pharmacies, not all will carry it. we only have one pharmacy here that will do it. you can always have the pharmacist administer it too, if your dr. doesn't want to mess with it.

good luck
