There used to be...Merck is the only company in this country that manufactured the measles only vaccine (attenuvax), but last year they stopped making it, It is not clear if and when they will make it again. There are rumors that they will start again in 2011, but I have not seen this in a press release from Merck.<br><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Unfortunately, Merck announced at the end of last year that they will not be resuming production. <a href="https://www.merckvaccines.com/monovalentMessage_102109.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.merckvaccines.com/monova...age_102109.pdf</a>
