Hazards of Lead in Children
Low to moderate levels of lead may cause problems with development, behavior, and hearing.
High levels of lead may cause coma, convulsions, and death.
ALL children should be screened at 1 and 2 years of age.
Call your local WIC office to schedule a Lead Screening at (906) 786-4112 in Delta County and (906) 863-4451 in Menominee County.
If you child's lead level is 10mcg/dl or higher, a second test to confirm the results is recommended.
