We see a NP at the base hospital. It's a teaching naval hospital, so they don't see that many children, especially AP/NFL infants and toddlers. Our NP (a civilian) is great and very supportive of our decision to selectively vax. I told her that I wanted to do seperate M/M/Rs vaxs for DD, spacing them several months apart. For the last month she says she has been looking for the sep. vaxs, but hasn't been able to find them. Is there anywhere I can order them? Or other resources? I don't want DD to have the combo vax, but on the otherhand, I feel it's important to have DD vax'd because we will be moving overseas. What should I do?

I just read today that the MMR can not be had seperately. They told us that my grandson had only the Measles component of the three but I am not sure I was told the truth.

Perhaps you want to read a bit more?

I'm curious about this, too, as my ped told me today she would *try* to find the seperate components, but wasn't sure if she'd be able to.
