How to Conduct a Health Records Search?

Health records or vital statistics are generally maintained at either the state or county level. Searches for these records may be available online, or requests can be made in writing through the pertinent office. Copies of records will typically only be given to the person named in the record or to kin of such person. To obtain access to such records, contact:

  • The relevant department will typically be called 'health', 'vital records', or something similar. These departments may only retain the most recent records, for example for events occurring over the past year.
  • The County Recorder's Office where the event took place. Older records will frequently be archived in the recorder's office where the event took place.
  • Doctors' offices or sometimes the relevant state health department's immunization program may retain records on immunizations.
