Lead Screening is provided though the Greater Lawrence Community Action Council’s Merrimack Valley Lead Poisoning Prevention Program. Children under the age of 6 can receive a free screening that involves a small amount of blood taken from your child’s finger and tested for lead. If the test is elevated, another test will be done. Lead poisoning is a condition caused by swallowing or inhaling lead. Even small amounts of lead can be harmful.
