Plan to Obtain Back to School Birth Certificates Now

The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) urges parents to avoid the last-minute scramble and long lines to get their children’s birth certificates. Early August is usually the busiest time of the year to get birth records for children going back to school.

Birth records in Oklahoma City are available at OSDH, 1000 N.E. 10th St. 

Parents can avoid the rush and plan to visit or contact these facilities now to obtain their children’s birth records. Birth certificates are issued between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, except for legal holidays. It is recommended parents arrive early to avoid the long lines.

To obtain a copy of a birth certificate, qualified applicants will need to provide their government issued photo ID, the child’s full name, date of birth, place of birth, and parents’ full names (including the maiden name of the mother). Applications, as well as a complete list of authorized applicants, are available online at
