Lead Testing Notification and Signature Form

Child’s Name ____________________________________________

Dear parent(s),

In order to foster the best health possible for all children in our care, our records must be kept current. We need your assistance in doing this, and appreciate your cooperation.

ٱ No record of lead test at age 1 and/or 2 years of age

“All children, regardless of lead exposure risk, should be screened with a blood lead test at one and two years of age as part of routine primary care” –Physician’s Handbook on Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention, NYS Department of Health and American Academy of Pediatrics, 2002

I understand that lead testing at age 1 and 2 is public health law and is advised by the American Academy of Pediatrics. I also understand that my child can be lead tested at his or her pediatrician’s office or at the local health department (778-2839). Children older than age 2 and younger than age 6 should be screened for lead poisoning risk factors and tested if at high risk.
