How to Get Your Child Tested

Blood Lead Screening for Children

Lead is toxic to brain development. The only way to know if your child is lead poisoned is to have your child’s blood tested by a doctor. The blood test is usually recommended for children aged 1 and 2 years old but can be done on children 9 months to 6 years old.

Getting your child’s blood tested:

1. Go to his/her own pediatrician or doctor.

2. If you have no health insurance, a test can be requested through N.E.W. Community Clinic:

622 Bodart St.
Green Bay, WI 54301
920-437-9773
NWTC Location
2740 W. Mason St.
Green Bay, WI 54303
920-498-5436

3. If your child receives WIC (Women, Infant and Children), a lead test can be requested through that office.

For more information on blood testing, please contact your local public health office.
