Having trouble getting yourself or a loved one to get a flu shot?  Just have your Doctor make an appointment.  People were three times as likely to get a flu shot when their physicians make appointments for them than when they are encouraged to make appointments themselves. Of those in a Rutgers university study of 886 patients, 16% percent of patients who had appointments for vaccinations made by their doctor showed up for the appointment, while just 5% of those who said they'd make their own appointment actually did it.  Many Doctors believe annual flu vaccine is the best preventative medicine in preventing people from getting sick, yet many simply do not partake in vaccinations.
