GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Please contact your primary care provider to request a blood lead screen; they may be able to perform the service in their office or refer you to a laboratory.

If your primary physician is unable to perform the service or refer you or your child for a lead screen at a laboratory, the Genesee County Health Department has options for you.

  • Bring a copy of the child’s insurance card.
