GTA and DPH to Offer Online Ordering of Birth/Death Certificates

Originally published May 7, 2012

The Georgia Technology Authority has partnered with the Department of Public Health to offer online ordering of birth and death certificates.  One of the target audiences is parents needing birth or death certificates when applying for health services.  As a part of the awareness campaign, GTA would like to display posters and cards in the health departments throughout the state.
The service is called Request Official Vital Event Records (ROVER).  Many health departments have already received their shipment of collateral and should have stated their display of the materials on May 4.

A second shipment of posters and cards should arrive about mid-May.  Health departments are asked to display the posters and table tent cards in their high traffic areas.  The 4"x6" cards are takeaways to be displayed near the posters and tent cards.  GTA recommends that health department staff use two-sided foam tape to mount the initial set of posters.
If you are health department staff and have questions about the service or the collateral, please contact Gina Brunson at or (404) 682-8612.
