Health Information Required When Applying for WIC

For each family member applying for WIC, you will need:
  • Height and weight measurements
  • Hemoglobin or hematocrit blood test
These tests may be performed at the WIC clinic.  However, you may bring height and weight measurements from the doctor but they must be taken within 60 days of the WIC certification visit. The blood test must be taken within 90 days of the WIC certification visit.

Infants less than 6 months old do not need a blood test

Ask your doctor or health clinic to fill out a WIC Medical Referral Form with this health information. One form should be filled out for each family member applying for WIC. Bring the form to the WIC office when you come for your WIC certification visit. If you don't have a doctor, the WIC office will let you know how you can get the health information needed.
