Resources for Childhood Blood Lead Testing
New Jersey’s Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention program is part of the DOH Division of Family Health Services. NJ State law requires that all children be screened for lead exposure at the ages of 12 and 24 months. Information on the program and screening can be found at the Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention website. Parents should discuss concerns they have about their children’s exposures to lead from any source with their pediatrician or other health care provider.
Information for Pet Owners
The DOH was asked about dogs and exposures to lead. If you have any concerns about your pet’s health, you should see your veterinarian.
