Health Matters

Keep track of your vital statistics

Written by Healthy Living

The Florida Department of Health in Lake County recently announced that vital statistics services will be available every third Tuesday of the month from 9am-noon at the office in Leesburg, 2113 Griffin Road. You must bring a valid state-issued identification along with cash or a credit card to receive what you need.

Why would you need a copy of your birth certificate? To get a driver’s license, a Social Security card, a job, a passport, or to enroll in school. A death certificate is needed to inform Social Security, insurance companies, probate court, investigations, and for property transfers. To get these vital documents, you must pay $15 for a birth certificate, $12 for death certificates, and $10 for each additional copy of the documents. A vinyl protector is available for $5.

Same-day services will continue to be offered from 8am-4:30pm at Eustis (16140 U.S. Highway 441) and Clermont (875 Oakley Seaver Drive). Call 352.589.6424 or visit lake.floridahealth.gov/certificates/birth for more information.
