WIC encourages families to stay up to date on vaccinations. We check in regularly with WIC families about their child’s immunization status, provide resources from credible sources, and empower parents to talk to their doctors.
WIC follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) vaccine recommendations for all populations that it serves. Learn more here about recommended vaccines per age group for children.
The CDC’s easy-to-read vaccine chart can help you learn what vaccines are recommended for each age and why each are important for keeping your child healthy.
Have questions about your child’s immunizations? Talk to your child’s pediatrician. Scheduling and attending well-child appointments at the recommended times can ensure your child’s immunizations stay up to date.
Thinking about getting the COVID-19 vaccine? WIC recommends following the CDC’s advice that states all pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding individuals be vaccinated against COVID-19. WIC encourages you to talk to your doctor about getting the COVID-19 vaccine, although a discussion with your healthcare provider is not required to get vaccinated.
