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 person in the family applying for WIC. Bring the form to the WIC office when you go for your appointment. If you don't have a doctor, the WIC office will let you know how you can get the health information needed.
Then, the staff at the WIC office will let you know if you qualify for WIC.
