Free birth certificates, cribs and hepatitis A vaccinations are available to those impacted by last week’s tornadoes.
Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County will be at remote locations to offer the services from 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. June 4 at St. Margaret’s Church at 5301 Free Pike, Trotwood, and 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. June 5 at the Harrison Twp. Community Center at 5945 N. Dixie Drive.
In addition, Public Health will have information available about how to get a replacement Medicare, Medicaid or Social Security card.
Birth certificates may be needed to help members of the public identify themselves to be eligible for relief services and to replace other identification documents.
For birth certificates, Public Health said the person must be 18 years or older and preferably head of a household, have their address prior to the natural disaster and proof of residence, provide a telephone number and optional email address and will need to complete an application.
Proof of residence can be anything that demonstrates an address in a tornado affected area, from a drivers license to a bill.
For questions about birth certificates call (937) 496-3117.
Hepatitis A vaccines will be available as well. There is a statewide outbreak of the virus, which spreads through ingesting even microscopic amounts of fecal matter and its spread is related to poor hygiene conditions.
The Montgomery County Recorder’s Office is distributing free property deeds to homeowners facing damage from the storms and needing proof of home ownership.
