More than half a million Iowa birth certificates need to be exhanged

Parents whose children were born between May 1993 and October 2009 impacted

DES MOINES, Iowa - The Iowa Department of Public Health is telling parents whose kids were born between May 1993 and October 2009 they should exchange their child's birth certificate for a new one.

Children born during that time were given wallet-sized certificates. The cards don't have enough information to be used as a proper identification. In all more than 630,000 birth certificates in Iowa need to be exchanged. The new certificate will have information like where the person was born and the names of their parents that the original did not include. Additional information on how to get a replacement birth certificate can be found on the Iowa Department of Public Health's website by clicking here.
