ALERT: Please note this important change to the purchase of certain WIC Approved juice containers.

On January 1, 2024, the 3rd phase of Connecticut's Bottle Bill is going into effect. Half gallon (64 oz.) plastic containers of juice are included in the items subject to a 10 cent bottle deposit.  The WIC Program cannot pay the 10 cent deposit. For transactions made with a WIC card, the 10 cent deposit must be paid for separately from the food items.


When purchasing 64 oz. plastic bottles of WIC approved juice, customers using WIC cards will first swipe their WIC card to pay for the WIC approved food items, then will need to pay the bottle deposit with any other form of payment.

COVID-19 Vaccines for Children Under Five Years Old: All children over 6 months old are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The best way to protect children against COVID-19 is to get them vaccinated. Like other pediatric vaccines, the COVID-19 vaccine was thoroughly tested on children before being recommended, and both types of vaccines are safe and effective. All children who have already had COVID-19 should still consider getting vaccinated. Parents or caregivers can find available vaccines HERE or by contacting their healthcare provider or local pharmacy. The vaccine is available at no cost to any child who meets the age criterion, regardless of insurance or immigration status.
