The Childhood Lead Poisoning Surveillance Report provides a summary of key findings from the CT DPH Lead Poisoning Program for children under 6 years of age who had a confirmed blood test in 2020. 
As of January 1, 2009, Connecticut law mandates that medical providers must conduct annual lead screening (i.e., blood lead testing) for each child 9 to 35 months of age. Furthermore, the law requires that any child between 36-72 months of age who has not been previously tested must also be tested by the child’s medical provider, regardless of risk (CT General Statue 19a-111g). The general recommendation is for the 1st and 2nd screens to occur at the 1 and 2 year 'well baby' visits.
