Can't you ask to have the MMR separated???

I may be wrong in this, but not sure. Did they use to do this until recently?

  • there are small amounts of the seperated vax still out there but it is not being made anymore, so if you start it no garauntee to finish it, plus you are just putting your kid through the pain of a shot 3 times unstead of 1

  • If you're worried about "getting" autism....don't! Autism is NOT caused by the MMR vaccine...it's GENETIC!

    My boys are both autistic (mild, high functioning, verbal), and before we knew about autism, my now 7 year had his regular MMR at 15 months (no changes). After his diagnosis and not understanding the validity of the MMR and possibly being a trigger for autism, I had the option to have my now 5 year old have the MMR spaced out with 3 separate vaccinations....no change, and he too was later diagnosed with autism (high functioning) just like my older son.
