I need a certified copy of a birth or death certificate, where can I go?

Putnam County Health Department can only print out vital records for the state of Missouri. We do not print out of state birth/death certificates. Complete an application for a copy of Birth or Death Certification, and bring it into the health department along with the required fee. This process takes approximately five to ten minutes. Once the record is printed, a fee is collected and the process is over. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, cash, check, money order, cashiers check only. Proof of ID is required. If you are unable to come in person, the application can be notarized and mailed with the fee for processing.
