New York State requires doctors to test all children for lead poisoning at ages 1 and 2. Only a blood test can tell how much lead is in a child’s body. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention determines what follow-up is needed for a child based on the amount of lead found in a child’s blood.

To find out if your child needs a lead test call your child’s doctor, or if you live in Onondaga County, complete the form here, call 315.435.3271, or email us at LeadFreeKids@ongov.net.
