This question came up once before but it took me a little while to find it(page 6 of the forum under the title "I am feeling better") so I have taken the liberty of copy/pasting Susan's response for you here.
To quote Susan ----
We have a factsheet on B12 that is useful. You can find it here: http://www.pcrm.org/health/PDFs/faq_b12.pdf
It's true, we need very little, 2.4 micrograms per day. A supplement or fortified food will take care of that and then some.
