    Uncombined MMR Shot?

    I am interested in giving the uncombined vaccination for the MMR--meaning instead of the combination shot, three separate shots for measles, mumps and then rubella.

    Where is this available in Hong Kong?

    OT&P in Wanchai (Tel: 2824 9112) have the single dose rubella and measles available.

    Mumps is not available anywhere in the world to my knowledge, however apparently Merck will resume production with the vaccine available in 2010.

    From what I've read, it's usually the measles vaccine that makes problems for people so maybe it will just be rubella for now and then wait for 2010 for mumps. Thank you, LeahH.
