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.
