Bloodwork Protocols

This is to provide guidance related to the hematological testing requirement for WIC certification. We have also attached a summary of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Dec. 6, 1991 final rule on Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens, because the provisions of this rule affect WIC clinic operations.

Breastfeeding Support During Certification and Food Package Issuance

We believe WIC staff need to provide additional support for breastfeeding at the time of certification and food package issuance in the following areas: providing complete information to participants on WIC benefits for breastfeeding women; resisting the distribution of unwanted infant formula to breastfeeding women; and, obtaining the cooperation of retailers in not redeeming unused infant formula for WIC participants.
