Question WIC: Ah yes, yet another non-vax Q & A, lol

Sorry, but you all are so full of info & nobody bashes me here for non vaxing .. so how about no vaxes & WIC? Anybody dealt with this? I did find & print this from their website: http://www.fns.usda.gov/wic/benefits...munization.HTM which specifically states: "Immunization records and/or an infant/child’s immunization status are in no way tied to the receipt of WIC benefits." So there shouldn't be a problem really, but they ask for the imm record so I was just wondering if anyone was given any problems? Also, what about the blood test for the child they require at a year? If you refuse that can they DQ you? Thanks mamas! -Amber

If you choose not to vax, and want to receive benefits like this, you should definately have a waiver on file & bring it with you to your appointments.

For the 2 mamas who say I should have a waiver on file, what type of waiver are you talking about & where would I get it from? -Amber

I don't know what state you are in, but every state should have an official vaccine waiver form and will describe which types of waivers are allowed (religious, medical or philosophical). In Michigan, the waivers are located here:

LOL and if you finally go they will pester you about the blood draw and not give you benifits till you do it (unless WIC has changed. We did that. I refused to give in though)

the only blood they had to take for my kids was just a quick prick on the finger to do an iron test once a year. My DD didn't care but my DS wow! what a chicken

Re: WIC: Ah yes, yet another non-vax Q & A, lol

I've had a kid on WIC since 1998 & the only blood test ever done was a finger prick for iron levels. ALL 3 of my kids are allergic to cows milk formula so we were able to get soy formula with NO issues (just a note from our DR) & our youngest 2 were allergic to regular cows milk after 1yr old & we were able to get Lactaid with no hassle either (my 5yr old was on lactaid until this past august & never had an issue). Now, they dont even ask for "proof" from a Dr if you want lactose free or soy. I am lactose intolerant & am able to get lactaid if I want during pregnancy.
