Births of children born in Clark County hospitals are registered with the county. Home births must be registered with the State Vital Records Office. Certified copies of birth certificates are available after the original certificate has been registered, usually 15 days after birth.
Certified copies of Birth Certificates are available for events that occurred in Clark County. All copies issued by this office are certified copies and serve as an original document. The health district has birth certificates for Clark County births from 1973- present. Birth certificates for people born in Clark County before 1973 can be requested through our office but will include an additional fee of $5. Birth Certificates are available in person, online or by mail. Birth certificates are confidential records. You must show or provide a copy of a valid driver license, state-issued ID or passport, and proof of relationship or tangible interest.
