Navajo County to assist residents in obtaining birth certificates
Navajo County Public Health Services District can assist area residents with hospital born Arizona birth certificates. The health district can provide Arizona birth certificates for children born from 1950 to the present to eligible individuals or parents for $20. The health district is not able to assist with delayed birth certificates, adoptions, amendments or corrections to births occurring prior to 1997. Information about those issues is available from the Arizona Department of Health Services, Office of Vital Records.
The health district can only process birth certificates from the Holbrook office. In order to further assist area residents, the Vital Records Office travels to other locations. If the health district is able to process the birth certificate, it is mailed to residents from the Holbrook office.
