We can print birth certificates for persons born in the state of Missouri from 1920 until present and death certificates from 1980 until present.
There is a $15.00 charge per birth certificate. Death certificates are $13.00 for the first copy and $10.00 for each additional copy requested on the same visit.
It only takes a few minutes as long as all the information is correct and the computers are working properly.
We have addresses and phone numbers for other states to obtain vital records if born outside of Missouri.
Certificates may be obtained Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM until 4:30 PM.
Beginning March 1, identification will be required when requesting vital records from the state health department in Jefferson City, local health departments throughout Missouri, and the St. Louis City Recorder of Deeds.
To obtain a copy of a birth or death certificate at these locations, a person must present a document containing a photo, such as a driver’s license, passport, or school, work or military identification. If an applicant does not have a photo ID, at least two alternate forms of identification must be presented. The documents must include the applicant’s name and the name of the company or organization issuing the document.Requests for vital records submitted by mail must be notarized by a notary public.
