Electronic Vital Events Registration System (EVERS)

Medical facilities and funeral directors pre-authorized by the NYC Health Department can report births, deaths, and terminations of pregnancy with the agency using the Electronic Vital Events Registration System (EVERS).

Only authorized users can enter data or report vital events in New York City using EVERS. Individuals who work in a hospital and are authorized to use this system should contact their administrator for access to the system. Those who are authorized users but are not affiliated with a hospital should email evers@health.nyc.gov at the NYC Bureau of Vital Statistics to be able to report vital events. Once your account has been created, you will be sent instructions on how to proceed.

All New York City vital event certificates must be completed in English. This means the following:

  • All first, middle and last names must be spelled in English.
  • No non-English letters or characters are permitted.
  • No accents, symbols or marks of any kind can be written over English letters.
  • Do not include any electronically created or handwritten non-English characters.
  • Numerals may only be used at the end of a name as a suffix (i.e.: John Doe, II).

Any certificates with non-English characters will be rejected. This is necessary as our electronic registration system and vital event certificate printing system cannot handle non-English text.


After rolling out the new software for registering vital events, eVital, we became aware of performance issues. To reduce the impact on facilities using the system to report births and deaths, we have reverted back to the previous software, EVERS. We are considering users' feedback and working to improve the new system. We will continue utilizing EVERS until eVital is fully operational.

Thank you for your patience during this transition.
