This is the official State of Oregon Vital Records website. In Oregon, the Center for Health Statistics issues certified copies of vital records for events that occurred within the state. We partner with VitalChek for internet orders. You can also order over the phone, by mail, or in person.
Oregon Center for Health Statistics has received an increased number of calls about third-party vendors selling birth, death, marriage and divorce certificates. These companies charge customers high fees to “process” or “help apply” for certificates issued from the Oregon Center for Health Statistics.
For the fastest service, without high fees, we encourage customers to order certified copies only from the Oregon Center for Health Statistics, your local Oregon county health department, or through our contracted vendor VitalChek at www.vitalchek.com.
If you have ordered through one of these third-party companies and would like to file a consumer complaint, contact the Oregon Department of Justice Consumer Protection or call 1-877-877-9392.
