Childhood Lead Poisoning Information

Ohio law requires all healthcare providers to administer blood lead tests to children at age 1 and 2, or up to age 6 if no previous test has been completed based on the following criteria: the child is on Medicaid, lives in a high-risk ZIP code, or has certain other risk factors.

For more about the recommendations for screening and medical management of children please visit the Ohio Department of Health Webpage on Childhood Lead Poisoning.

Infectious Disease Control Manual (IDCM)

The IDCM is designed to be a reference for local health departments, hospitals, laboratories and physicians in providing information about infectious diseases from a public health perspective, including prevention, control and reporting of suspected and diagnosed cases. This manual is updated at least annually to reflect changes in public health practices and disease prevention and control activities.
