NYC Health Dept Bureau of Vital Statistics Update

The NYC Health Department’s Bureau of Vital Statistics is developing a new vital events registration system call eVital to replace EVERS.

Go-live date is Monday, October 9, 2017. Additional info below from the Bureau:

  • On Monday, October 9, 2017, a holiday, we will start registering births, deaths, and issuing burial permits using eVital.

  •  On Tuesday, October 10, 2017, we will open to the public using eVital.

  •  User enrollment into eVital began in February has continued each month. It is critical that eVital administrators get enrolled into the system now and enroll the users at their facilities. Active EVERS users will need to enroll into the new system before go-live.

  • If your facility administrator has enrolled, would like a BLU device to facilitate facial recognition, and has not yet picked it up, please contact our Constituent Services Unit to schedule the pickup of a device.

  • User training sessions were conducted this summer and are completed. Please visit the eVital web page at: for documentation from these webinars and additional information about use of eVital. We will continue to update this page with additional resources.

  • Please see the FAQ for more information on registering deaths during this period of time.• Migration of data from EVERS to eVital will require approximately 48 hours of system downtime, beginning Saturday, October 7th at 2 a.m.

Please feel free to communicate any questions or concerns to the Constituent Services Unit by email: or by calling 646-632-6705.
