Welcome to the Office of Vital Statistics at the City of Berkeley, CA. We are part of the Health, Housing & Community Services Department.

Effective May 1st, 2019 Berkeley Vital Records will only issues certificates for the first 2 years after a birth or death. If it has been more than 2 years since the birth or death, the certificate can be obtained by contacting the Alameda County Recorder's Office, (510) 272-6362. The City of Berkeley Vital Records only maintains documentation of births and deaths that occurred within Berkeley City limits, including out of hospital births, commonly called “home births”. If a birth or death occurred outside of Berkeley, contact the county, state, or country in which the event occurred to request the record. The City of Berkeley does not issue marriage certificates. Contact the Alameda County Recorder at (510) 272-6363 regarding marriages in Berkeley. 

The Office of Vital Statistics is CLOSED EVERY FRIDAY of each month in addition to City holidays and Reduced Service Days. Please see below for an individual listing of City holidays and Reduced Service Days so that you may plan your trip accordingly. -
