Lead Testing

Image text: Children born on or after March 1, 1995 must have proof of a BLOOD LEADTEST for new or continued enrollment in child care or school programs throughout kindergarten.

Children who have been lead poisoned may not look or act sick, so it is important to have them tested.

Blood lead testing for children is available by appointment only at the following locations:

City State Service Center Monday thru Friday Wednesday
 Dover  James W. Williams  8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.  
 Georgetown  Adams  8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.  8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

  • Bring your child’s medical record to the appointment.
  • A parent or legal guardian must be with children under 18 years of age.
