(by phone) due to the USDA waivers tied to the COVID-19 pandemic. As waivers expired on
August 9, 2023, Wyoming WIC will require more in-person appointments.
What does this mean for me? Over the next several months, when you schedule your next
WIC appointment, we will let you know if it will need to be in-person or if it can be done remotely
and what you can expect during your appointment.
Do I have to attend WIC appointments in person? Many WIC appointments can still be done
over the phone or online. There will be times, at least once or twice a year, when WIC will need
to assess you or your child’s growth and hemoglobin levels to help us partner with you to
provide personalized nutrition services. These appointments may need to be in-person. If you
have recent measurements from your doctor, let your clinic know. We may be able to use them
to complete your appointment remotely.
Why does WIC need my height, weight and hemoglobin level? Measurements are an
important indicator of health and nutritional well-being and WIC is a health and nutrition
program. During your appointments, WIC will gather these measurements and let you know how
your child is growing on their growth chart or where you are on your pregnancy weight gain grid.
WIC can also let you know if your hemoglobin level is low or just right and suggest changes to
the foods you eat to help improve measures that are low.
Can I still submit documents to my WIC clinic? Yes, you can continue to submit your
documents electronically to your WIC clinic email. You can also bring them to your appointment
if you are scheduled to be seen in-person at the clinic.
What if I need to change clinic locations? Use the Clinic Locations and Information to find the
WIC clinic closest to you. Call the clinic you’d like to be seen at to schedule your next
We look forward to continuing to serve you and see your family! Please know that while remote
appointments are still available, we always offer in-person appointments too!
