Goodbye to Daylight Savings

Along with remembering to pick up some treats for all the ghosts and goblins, also a reminder tonight we say goodbye to daylight savings time. Before you go to bed, make sure you switch the clocks in your home back one hour. Dr. Rachel Morehouse is a sleep specialist with the Horizon Health Network and tells CHSJ News, this is a great opportunity to get the body some much needed rest:

Morehouse adds with the days getting shorter, it takes the body some time to get used to the change of season so don't push yourself to hard.

Health Care Worker Denied Vaccine

There is lots of frustration and anger in the region about the provincial swine flu vaccination program.

Our newsroom has received many calls this week of long lines at clinics only to be refused once you reach the front.
A front line health care worker in Saint John told CHSJ News last night they were refused the H1N1 vaccine yesterday.
It happened at a clinic at St. Joseph's hospital that was supposed to be for health care workers only. The employee says members of the general public were receiving the shot yesterday before it was cancelled.
The 12-hour clinic was cut off 4 and a half hours early.
