Dr. Zoo is a game designed to help children who are afraid of shots change their perceptions of needles and vaccinations. The game presents children with scenarios where the children play the role of an animal doctor and give a shot to a sick animal to make it feel better.
This game had been developed and validated by a team of researchers at the University of Pittsburgh.
