Lead Contamination and Children or Pregnant Women

Children who live, learn, play or frequently visit the Flint should be tested for lead poisoning as soon as possible. The best place to get your child tested is your doctor's office and the tests are covered by most health plans. A blood lead test is the only way to find out if your child has a high lead level. Most children with high levels of lead in their blood have no symptoms. Your child's health care provider can recommend treatment if your child has been exposed to lead.
