The Coconino County Public Health Services District (CCPHSD) has expanded birth certificate services at its Northern Region Office in Page.
Residents can acquire a copy of their birth certificate two days each month: from noon-4:30 p.m. the second Tuesday and from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. every second Wednesday.
“Many people never think about whether they have an official copy of their birth certificate until they need it,” CCPHSD Chief Health Officer Marie Peoples said in a press release. “Birth certificate may be required to obtain a driver’s license, a marriage license, to get a passport, to enroll in school.”
The service is limited to residents who were born in Arizona, and certified copies of birth certificates cost $20 each.
“Getting a birth certificate now may save valuable time when it’s needed,” Peoples said.
CCPHSD can only correct or amend records for births that occurred after 1997. For births prior to 1997, correction paperwork must be sent to the State Office of Vital Records, the release said. That cost is $30, including the birth certificate.
