Child Lead Screening
Call the Lab at (989) 895-4013
Summer 2022 Kindergarten Round-Up Walk-in events
Lead screenings are performed on children ages 1 through 5 years. The test takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. Lead screening is recommended for children ages 12 months and 24 months. If not completed at 12 or 24 months, lead screening should be completed before their 6th birthday.
Lead is common in our environment, especially in lead paint used in homes built prior to 1968. Children may be exposed to lead during home renovation, from soil, toys, pottery, and home remedies. Lead at toxic levels effects a child's nervous system impairing development.
If you are interested in your child receiving a lead screening test, please call 989-895-4013.
You must schedule an appointment to have your child's lead level checked.
