DEP has 10 mobile units managed by the Mobile Response Operation section. These units deploy upon request to provide public health services including, but not limited to, school health screenings, routine immunizations, COVID-19 vaccination and testing, HIV/STI testing, and phlebotomy training.

Any school nurse, administrator or school liaison who would like to request an IDOH mobile hearing screening unit hearing screening should contact the school liaison in their county or Lorrie Ramsey, chief nurse consultant (CNC), at or submit the request form below.

Request Daycare Lead Testing

Launched in May of 2024, our mobile units are now directly supporting childcare providers who want to offer lead testing to the families of children at their site. Children under the age of 6 are most vulnerable to the lifelong, hazardous impacts of lead exposure and testing is the only way to know for sure whether a child is being exposed to lead.

If you are a childcare operator and would like to have one of our mobile teams come to your site to conduct testing, please take a moment and fill out the form linked below.

If you have questions about lead testing before you fill out the request, feel free to reach out to Kari Horsley at 317-233-1296 or
