Part of that care is recognizing the importance of immunizations. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) support the full range of immunizations for your child and so does MemorialCare. We know how much you as a parent want to protect your child. Immunizations can protect against 14 serious diseases, some deadly. Learn more about immunizations and vaccinations on our site and also at the American Academy of Pediatrics website.
Your health is important to you around the clock—not just during office hours. Our system-wide electronic medical records can be accessed by providers at any MemorialCare patient touch point. You can request appointments and prescription refills, email your provider, review your health history and more—online, any time through myChart.
