While COVID-19 may be top of mind right now, we are also in the midst of flu season. Luckily, TRICARE covers the flu vaccine.
The Main Outpatient Drive-Thru Pharmacy is now sustainably open 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., every Saturday. All vehicles that arrive before closing time, will be seen; this is another commitment Madigan is making to its patients.
With the convenience and ease of the TRICARE Home Delivery Pharmacy Program, you can spend less time waiting at the pharmacy and more time with family and friends.

In this time of social distancing and self-isolation in an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19, we strongly encourage that all of our patients establish their MHS GENESIS Patient Portal account. MHS GENESIS is the new electronic health record for the Military Health System (MHS) that provides enhanced, secure technology to manage your health information.
The world is searching for a treatment, a cure and a prevention for COVID-19. One piece of that puzzle may be tapped via the sap of human life – blood. At Madigan Army Medical Center, and 14 other Department of Defense facilities, those who have recovered from COVID-19 can donate the liquid part of their blood – the plasma – in an effort to apply it to use as a treatment for those battling the disease now. On a recent visit to Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs Thomas McCaffery made a special stop at the Armed Services Blood Bank Center - Pacific Northwest.
