How Do I Get a Lead Test For My Child?

It is critically important to get your child tested for lead so that if there is an elevated blood lead level, steps can be taken to eliminate the source of lead and monitor your child’s health. The state Department of Health website has information about lead poisoning and a link to recent recalls. Visit the site here.

If your child does not have health insurance, or insurance does not cover blood lead tests, contact the local health department. They can help your child get tested.
