Lead Testing Information

  • If you are concerned that your child might be at risk for lead poisoning, talk with your doctor, your child's pediatrician, or contact the Shelby County Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP) at 901-222-9582 or by email for information on screening and testing for lead poisoning.
  • Free lead testing is available at all Shelby County Health Department clinics between 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. 
  • No appointment or proof of health insurance is required, but a parent or legal guardian must accompany the child.
