Try vcov(myLmerModel). That returns a variance-covariance matrix for the fixed effects. The usual manipulations are used to get the standard errors. For the binomial and Poisson families you should use the optional argument useScale=FALSE as these families do not have a separately estimated scale parameter in the variance function.

In the "show" method for the summary.lmer class the relevant piece of code is

              corF <- as(as(vcov(object, useScale = useScale), "pdmatrix"),
