April 9, 2020 – To reduce the number of clients coming into health departments, the Coastal Health District is moving to phone-only appointments for families enrolled in the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program beginning Monday, April 13.
WIC clients will soon receive a text message with this information. There is no immediate need for clients to respond when they receive the text. Our clinic staff will reach out directly to all clients to complete appointments and make sure the addresses we have on file are correct so WIC vouchers can be mailed.
The Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program is a special nutrition program that provides nutritional education, food supplements, and referrals to health care providers to eligible women, infants, and children.
WIC helps eligible pregnant, breastfeeding or postpartum women, as well as infants and children up to age five.
To find out if you are eligible to become a WIC participant, please call your local health department. All WIC services are free of charge. Clients must show proof of income, home address, and identification at the first visit.
