Information for You

Manufacturers who use chemicals designated by the State of Vermont as Chemicals of High Concern to Children, must report information about these chemicals to the Health Department.

Many Vermonters are eager to travel to warmer climates, but if you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant, do not travel to areas with the Zika virus.

New parents don't automatically receive a copy of their child's birth certificate. Find out how to order a certified copy of a birth certificate in Vermont. 

The water test(s) to be ordered depends on the source of your water.

Several infectious diseases are either not seen in Vermont, or are no longer a serious threat here. But even rare diseases require attention due to the possibility of importation from people traveling abroad.
