It is important for you and your children to be up to date on routine vaccinations, so you are protected from infectious diseases like measles, whooping cough, flu, COVID-19, and others. For more information, please see the links below. You may schedule an appointment at any county health department, with your medical provider, or at a pharmacy.
Regular Checkups for Your Child: Well-Child Visits
Regular visits to the doctor, even when your child is not sick, help you keep track of their health and development, check for possible problems, and make sure they're up-to-date on vaccinations. It's also your chance to ask questions and get expert answers about your child's health.
Lead Poisoning Prevention
Lead can be very dangerous for you and your children. Three key nutrients – vitamin C, iron, and calcium – may limit the body's absorption of lead. Foods rich in these nutrients can be found in your WIC food package.
Alcohol, Tobacco and Drugs
During pregnancy, women should not use tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, illegal drugs, or prescription medications unless they are for medical reasons. Avoiding these substances and getting regular prenatal care are important to having a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Avoiding these substances after you have a baby is important, too. Counseling and treatment are available if you have hard time quitting unhealthy substances on your own.
