New research shows the place people go to get well could also be making them sick! Kids have "well child" doctor visits for regular check-ups and vaccinations but a new study finds more than 700-thousand flu-like illnesses pop up within two weeks after those well-child visits.

Researchers stress, these routine check-ups remain vitally important to kids' health but they suggest getting a doctor that has separate waiting rooms for sick and healthy children, good handwashing, and cough etiquette is a must.
