Wellness Center & Travel Immunizations
The Wellness Center (formerly called Medical Office) was created over 50 years ago to screen and oversee the health of missionaries in the field, and to provide periodic evaluation and examination of those personnel and their dependents. As the building has evolved, so has the Wellness Center. In addition to caring for mission personnel, the office provides Occupational Health and Safety Services to employees of tenant agencies of The Interchurch Center and Travel Medicine Consultations and Immunizations.
Our offices are open to both the general public and to employees of TIC tenant agencies; TIC Wellness Center focuses on providing the proper travel immunizations coupled with expert consultation to travelers on holiday or business. These services are offered by appointment only.
Monday – Friday
9:00AM - 4:00PM
Consultation and immunizations carry with them a charge, payable by cash or major credit card at the time of service. Fees are subject to change due to varying costs.
Keep us in mind when planning your next international travel.
