My Doctor won't give me B12 Shots...What do I do now?

     Just yesterday I went to see my doctor to ask her to give me Vitamin B12 shots, and I used being vegan as a excuse to need them. Before giving me a lecture on how all vegans are deficient in iron/protein/calcium, she told me that I wouldn't need them at my age (15/16) and that I should just take a Vitamin supplement. She's a very knowledgeable doctor, but only knowledgeable on the things that she was taught in med school.  She insisted that I was deficient in iron when CRON-O-meter clearly says that I'm not deficient in anything except vitamins B12 and D. 

    So now that my doctor won't give me the shots, what can I do to increase my B12 levels? I've heard of this supplement (i forgot the name) that can be taken under the tongue but what is it and where can I find it?

I just purchased the sublingual b complex today at my local health food store. I am excited to see the benefits. I am hoping to order it online though as it was pretty expensive. Though I do like to support locals...so it's a toss up.

Thanks so much, guys :) I think I'll go with the sublingual b complex. I'll see if I can find them in nearby pharmacies

Ya take sublinguals they have been shown to work just as well.  I prefer them over shots since they don't bypass the immune system, just the digestive system.

I take a sublingual b complex.  It works in the same way as the shots in that it is absorbed under the tongue and bypasses the digestive system.  I got my blood tested recently and my b12 levels are optimal so I know it works.  I am also low in iron so I started taking Floradix, a vegan herbal iron supplement that is great!
