The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) will open a one-stop shop to help residents living near the USS Lead Superfund site in East Chicago obtain blood lead testing, birth certificates and immunizations at no cost. The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) will be on site to provide vouchers that residents can take to their nearest branch to obtain a free state-issued ID or driver’s license. Navigators will help consumers with health insurance. The one-stop shop will be open Saturday, Oct. 8, 2016, from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. in the recreation center at the West Calumet Housing Complex, 4925 Gladiola St., East Chicago. The lead testing clinic will replace the clinic previously held at the old Carrie Gosch School on Fridays and Saturdays.
