Child Lead Poisoning Prevention
Have your child's blood lead level tested at age 1 and 2. Children from 3 to 6 years of age should have their blood tested, if they have not been tested before, and:
- They have a sibling or playmate that has or did have lead poisoning
- They live in or regularly visit a house built before 1950
- They live in or regularly visit a house built before 1978 with on-going or recent renovations or remodeling
Children can have a blood lead test done at their physician's office or by appointment at the Public Health office.
