Do you like choices?

Merck recently decided that they WILL NOT make the seperate MMR in 2010 now after misleading us all for the past 6 months stating that they would indeed re-start the production of the seperate Measles, Mumps and Rubella shots.
We NEED to call and voice our opinions AGAIN!!
Please please please!!!
You can contact Merck at 1-800-MERCK-90 (1-800-637-2590) or 1-800-NSC-MERCK between 8 a.m.–7 p.m. (ET) Monday through Friday to inquire specifically.
Things to mention:

* Parents need a choice or they won't vaccinate at all!
* No one reacts well to being forced to do anything they don't feel comfortable with -look at the NY State Healthcare workers.
* Not every child can handle a vaccine of 3 live viruses at one plus the 4 other vaccines that the CDC recommends at that same age or on the same day for that matter!

  • I do like choices, but I'm good with the mixed MMR. I figure if they're all together, it's 2 less pokes. I'll take it!

  • * There are many children out there who started receiving the 3 seperate MMR shots and now since the last remaining 1 or 2 shots they need aren't available they will now have to receive the MMR combo giving them double the dose of what they already had.
    * MMR (whether combo or monovalent) is to be given to BABIES between the ages of 12-18 mo. (along with many others). A Measles Vaccine is also required before age 6. If parents can't give their children the Measles booster, they will have to double vaccinate for 2 other diseases that there children are already vaccinated against!! Does this make sense???

    Spread the word!!!
