ADH Vital Services Rollout Complete


The Arkansas Department of Health is now offering vital records services in all counties. At least one Local Health Unit in every county is now ready to process same-day, in-person requests for birth certificates and death certificates. In addition to in-person and mail requests, a new .gov online system recently launched in partnership with Information Network of Arkansas for online orders.

“The Department of Health has achieved simplicity by providing easy and quick access to copies of important documents in every county in the state,” said Governor Asa Hutchinson. “I commend Dr. Smith and the Department of Health for this first-rate efficiency, which is a continuation of the department’s good work to eliminate backlogs and to meet the needs of Arkansans which is our highest priority. This is a great example of government transformation at its best.”

ADH has already issued over 37,000 birth and death certificates from the LHUs as services have become available locally this year. Offering vital records locally helps reduce travel time for Arkansans and has provided an easier option for them to get these important documents.    MORE
