The Clark County Combined Health District will now be able to issue  certified birth abstracts from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH)/Vital Statistics statewide database for those who were born in the State of Ohio.

With the new system, an individual will be able to purchase a certified birth abstract regardless of county of his birth.
In the past, a person needed to travel to the county where the birth occurred to purchase a certificate.
Another option was to request a birth certificate from the state office of Vital Statistics.
All local health districts will be able to access and issue a certified birth abstract for Ohio birth records dating back to 1908. 
Participation by local health districts in the statewide issuance program, however,  is optional and not all offices have chosen to participate.
The Clark County Combined Health District is one of the districts that will use the ODH database for statewide issuance.
“We have waited for statewide issuance for a long time”, said Jacquie Thornburg, Vital Statistics Supervisor. 
“Excellent customer service has always been our goal and we are pleased to be able to offer this new service to our residents.
“It will allow people who live in Springfield and Clark County to access their records in a convenient and efficient manner without having to leave the county”.
Thornburg added, “The certified birth abstract is a legal document accepted by local, state, and federal agencies”. 
Certified birth abstracts are available at the Clark County Combined Health District from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday though Friday. 
The cost of each abstract is $22.
