The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) announced today the temporary waiver issued yesterday of fees for birth and death certificates for victims of the May 19 and 20 tornadoes has been expanded to include storm victims in five counties: McClain, Oklahoma, Pottawatomie, Lincoln and Cleveland counties. The waiver will remain in effect until June 30, 2013, for those victims whose homes were located in the path of tornadoes in those five counties.

Storm victims can apply for birth or death certificates at the Oklahoma State Department of Health office at 1000 Northeast Tenth Street in Oklahoma City. There will be no charge. Please bring photo identification or other documents that demonstrate your home address.

In addition, the OSDH has established a temporary Vital Records station within the Moore branch of the Cleveland County Health Department at 424 S. Eastern in Moore. Storm victims can stop by the Moore Health Department from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and apply for a birth or death certificate. Services will also be available at the Moore office this Saturday, May 25, from 10 a.m. till 2 p.m. and Memorial Day, Monday, May 27, from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m. Fees will be waived. Persons applying at the Moore office should also bring photo identification or other documents which demonstrate your address. Persons can best access the Moore office from the north off Eastern.

State health officials emphasize this free service is only for storm victims. All other persons who need these records will need to pay the fee and should not attempt to access the Moore office. No money will be accepted at the Moore office.
