Does anyone have any information about the re-introduction of separate shots for Measles, mumps and rubella?

 

I was planning on doing separate shots but just read an (old) article (from 2009) that it's no longer available.

 

thanks!

Dr. Sears reported in early 2009 that he had been informed that Merck was going to resume production of the monovalent vaccines (which had only just been discontinued). Didn't happen. I imagine the ramp-up time would be about a year if they happened to change course.

There are other countries that only vax Measles but not Mumps or Rubella, so someone must still be manufacturing and selling monovalent vaccines.
