The Talbot County Health Department will be issuing birth and death certificates to the public on a walk in basis. The hours are from 8AM to Noon and 1PM to 4PM. If you have any questions or require further assistance, please call 410-819-5600.
For birth certificates you must be born in the State of Maryland. You will need to supply a copy of a valid photo ID. In this case, you will leave the premises with your birth certificate in hand as long as there are no corrections that need to be made to the document. If your ID or driver's license is expired, you will need to provide two forms of proof such as copies of your social security card, bank statement, utility bill and/or W2. In this case your birth certificate will be mailed to you. The cost is $22 and can be paid by cash, check or money order. The check or money order must be made out to the Talbot County Health Department, filled out completely, correctly and signed in the correct place. We are not able to make changes/corrections to birth certificates and if a change/correction is needed, it can ONLY be made by contacting:
The Division of Vital Records at 6764-B Reisterstown Road, Baltimore, MD 21215 at 1-410-764-3038.
