    The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children still recommends that hospitals capture a baby's footprints. Apparently some actually take photographs of the baby's feet. According to a 2016 survey done by the center, about 90 percent of hospitals still do, but through traditional ink-and-paper or an inkless paper method

    They still do it.

    It's not on the birth certificate; that's a document issued by the State long after the baby is born. The hospital does it on their own form.

    They never have done it in the UK.

    Hospitals in the UK do not do birth certificates nor do they do footprints on birth certificates. Perhaps you should be more specific

    They never did and hospitals don't do birth certificates health departments do.

    Footprints go in the medical records. Few states ever required a footprint on the birth certificate. It is still often done in some hospitals as a "souvenir" certificate at birth, but it was rarely, and probably only for a short time (a decade or two), used on an official record for the state.
