Testing Children for Lead Poisoning

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. Onondaga County residents can call (315) 435-3271.

 

To request the results of your child’s lead test, please send a copy of your picture ID with the following completed forms:

Requests can be sent by email to LeadFreeKids@ongov.net or by mail to the Onondaga County Health Department, Lead Poisoning Control Program, 421 Montgomery St. 9th Floor, Syracuse, NY 13202. Additional information may be needed before results can be provided.

More information is available by calling the Onondaga County Lead Poisoning Control Program at (315) 435-3271 and can be found on our resources page.
