FARMINGTON — The location for a delayed birth certificate and Real ID clinic next week in Window Rock, Arizona, has changed.

The new location will be at the Department of Diné Education, 2556 Morgan Blvd. in Window Rock.

Mark Kassouf, bureau chief for the New Mexico Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics, said the event was relocated from the Navajo Office of Vital Records and Identification to accommodate more people.

The clinic will operate from noon to 4 p.m. on July 16 and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 17-18.

In recent years, the tribal and state vital records offices have been collaborating to help tribal members in obtaining delayed birth certificates.

In addition to the two agencies, the clinic will have participation from the vital records offices in Arizona, Colorado and Utah.

The New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division will have its mobile unit on site to provide services such as the issuance of driver's licenses and identification cards that comply with the federal Real ID Act and vehicle registrations.

For more information about the clinic, contact the Navajo Office of Vital Records and Identification at 928-871-6386 or the Office of the Speaker at 928-871-7160.
