Notice: Early January 2021 Indiana State Department of Health implemented a new digital registry system.
As a result, many certificates have not transferred into the new registry.
Please call the East Chicago Health Department Vital Records division at (219) 391-8413 to check the availability of East Chicago records before making in office visits, mail orders, or online orders.
If your record exists with East Chicago and is not available through the digital archives a request must be made by the Health Department to Indiana State in order to generate the record.
This process may take several weeks due to short staff. Please plan your prior obligations accordingly.
Please note the Health Department is not liable for any appointments or expiration dates known to the requester.
No document can be produced for the client to appease appointments or expiration dates.
