How you been vaccinated lately?

A study by NFID has found that many adults are skipping their vaccinations. There has been speculation about whether this is due to the high prices for the new vaccines ($150/shingles and $300/HPV) or some other reason. Right now, there isn't any mechanism to help those living on a low-income to afford them. Isn't this also the fault of doctors for not recommending them and explaining their benefits? Maybe people are skipping out on doctor visits, too. When did you last go to the doctor, for that matter?
