You can now use Text4Baby to set up a text reminder for your next WIC appointment using these simple steps:

2. To set up the appointment reminder text the word “REMIND” (or “CITA” for Spanish) to 511411.
3. When prompted, enter the appointment date (e.g., 10/02/12) and a short description of the appointment (examples: “with WIC at Front St. office/bring proof of address/get lab results”).
4. You will receive the following automated text message: “Your reminder is set for your appointment on 10/12/13. We will send you a reminder three days before.”
