Immunization Screening and Referral
Immunizing children against certain diseases is one important way to help them stay healthy. WIC’s mission is to be a partner with other services that are important to childhood and family well-being, such as immunizations. As an adjunct to services that provide immunizations, the WIC Program’s role is to find out about a child’s need for immunizations and share that information with parents, including where to get a child immunized.
Immunization records and/or an infant/child’s immunization status are in no way tied to the receipt of WIC benefits.
