#Participants will receive their individual test results at the conclusion of the MVD testing program, since blood specimens are being sent to the lab all at once after 200 samples have been received. MVD participants have been slected at random.
Individuals eligible for the DHHS PFC blood testing program may include those who worked on, lived on, or attended child care on the Pease Tradeport, and private well-owning residents of Amherst, Bedford, Litchfield, Manchester, and Merrimack who live on streets served by private drinking water wells that have registered PFC levels above 70 ppt.
Residents interested in determining their eligibility and registering for the DHHS PFC Blood Testing Program must complete the registration form. After registration, eligible residents will be provided with testing information and a laboratory test requisition form. Please do not attempt to get your blood drawn until you receive these items in the mail.
In addition, DHHS is conducting a limited exposure assessment of approximately 200 residents served by the Merrimack Village District Water Works. These individuals have been asked to participate at random through a letter in the mail.
Residents with questions about PFCs and the blood testing program can call the DHHS Public Inquiry Line at 603-271-9461.
