Measles, Mumps, and Rubella: is it possible to get these vaccines in three separate shots instead of one (MMR)?

It was my understanding that this was possible at some point, but that now Merck has stopped manufacturing the vaccines separately. My pediatrician recommend one pharmacy (Hopewell) in NJ that might be able to get them, but they have told me to directly to Merck. I have prescriptions for each separate vaccine and I do want my child to be immunized, but the combined MMR vaccine seems like the only option at this point. Does anyone know where I can find the separate vaccines (in the US)? Have you (or someone you know) had any luck in doing this?
