Birth & Death Certificates

Vital Records order form

Vital Records

Vital records and the statistics that can be generated from them are an important tool in determining the health of our community. They also play an important role for each person. Certified copies of vital records are required to get social security benefits, a driver’s license, passport, and other legal documents.

Oregon law requires all vital events such as births, and deaths be permanently recorded and registered.

Ordering Certificates

Clatsop County Public Health can issue certified copies of birth and death certificates for six (6) months after an event that happened in Clatsop County.  To order certificates for events that happened more than six (6) months ago or outside of Clatsop County, contact State of Oregon Vital records.

Each birth or death certificate costs $25. Payment due at the time of service. If you have not concluded your business with your mortuary you may be able to order additional copies through them.
