Flu season will strike this fall - that we are sure of.  We can't stop the flu from coming, but what we can do is start now to protect our families and our communities from all types of flu viruses. It will take all of us working together to "Fight the Flu."


Protect Your Family

  • Plan ahead what you will do if your children's school or daycare is closed for a period of time.
  • Talk to your employer about a flexible work schedule in case you need to stay home because you are sick or because you are caring for a sick family member.

More Missourians receiving assistance through WIC Program

Effort aims to improve the health of women, infants and children

The number of Missouri women, infants and children receiving nutrition information and food assistance through the WIC program grew nearly 10 percent in the last year.

More than 148,000 Missourians currently participate in the program every month, up from an average of 135,000 participants per month last year.

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children – commonly known as WIC – provides nutrition services to improve the health of pregnant women, new mothers, infants and children up to 5 years of age who meet income and residency guidelines.

“Good nutrition is essential to giving babies a healthy start in life,” said Dr. Lyn Konstant, bureau chief for the WIC program at the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. “Providing nutritious food and health information to women who are pregnant, as well as mothers of infants and young children, helps thousands of women make healthier choices for themselves and their families.”
