How the Gerry Robertson Center is using pet therapy to make vaccinations painless and cuddly
Starting November 2nd, 2021, pet therapy will be back at our population vaccination site at the Gerry-Robertson Community Center! Anxiety during the vaccination process can make the experience overwhelming. With a goal of providing the best services to our population and in view of the success of pet therapy in our vaccination centers, we are proud to announce that service dogs will be back at the Vaccination Clinic at the Gerry Robertson Center. In collaboration with the Corporation des zoothérapeutes du Québec, we offer anyone who wishes an environment conducive to a happy vaccination. In addition to pet therapy, people who are anxious about vaccination can count on aromatherapy and vaccination in complete privacy in a quiet room. Where: Gerry-Robertson Community Center (9665, boulevard Gouin Ouest, Pierrefonds / Roxboro, at the corner of boulevard Sunnybrooke, H8Y 1R4) When: From November 2nd to mid-December
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
