New 'super vaccines' for flu season as doctors hope to cut deaths

'The vaccines we have this year are improved, they are going to be good – not excellent, but good.'

Authorities hope a new and improved vaccine, plus two new ‘super vaccines’, will help Australia avoid a repeat of last year’s record flu season.

Looks great !!! BUT Now you need to look into sorting out drop off and pick up - it is appalling- !!!!!! Spend some time and money fixing it please !!!!! Maybe look at other airports and see how they handle it - for example Melbourne drop off and pick up are in two seperate areas!!!!!! You only need to read all the comments to realise everyone thinks it is an issue which needs to be solved

Agree with pick up and drop off criticism. Also needed are more toilets inside the terminal. One set at each end of the terminal and one in the middle is nowhere near enough when there is distance to walk and large numbers of passengers. Ridiculous.

Needs more bars 🍻 🍷

Very disappointed in the club not re-signing JK. Understand moving toward the future but Jarrod is one that should have been retained, considering the great commitment and job he did in Martin’s absence. And the players revue the Ball just isn’t gonna be the same. Thanks for everything Jarrod Kenny. I hope you continue to shine at whichever club you land at next season.

No doubt the breakers will jump on him, was a pretty important part of the championships. Does this mean we are announcing Norton soon?

Awesome player should of been resigned! Thankyou JK

Perth still recognises the massive contribution from him even though he is from the “other” side.

JK has made an enormous contribution to the WC. He will be missed. Will have an impact as a player and person at any club smart enough to pick him up. The WC are renewing for the future and Jarrod's age counted against him. Let's hope they resign DKD. He is the future.

Don't worry we still have stieldn!!!!!

Feel sorry for the bloke considering what he done when Damo was injured. Given way too little time

Jarrod Kenny thank you for your time in the West. We have thoroughly loved having you here. You will be sadly missed

Thanks Kenny for everything! Your an amazing player and person!

Thanks J k we enjoyed your stay at the Wild Cats where ever you end up I hope you prove a point good luck 🏀🏀🏀😔😔😔

Well done on your time at the Cats. Norton (if true) is a great pick up as he is only 25. I’ll be annoyed if DKD does get let go as he hasn’t really been given a heap of opportunities.

Thank you for everything Jarrod, loved watching your play and devotional our team, all the best in your future endeavours and which ever team signs you, they’ll pick up a gem of a player

Very serviceable player who did well, but probably cost himself through a lack of aggressiveness on offense at key moments. Turned down so many open looks

Shame to see him go I thought he was one of the better players this year for the WC's and has always been a consistent reliable performer over the years. A talented attacking player.

Thanks JK, had a breakout season just gone, really stepped up when we needed it. Good luck wherever you end up champ

Great guy, but just not potent enough on court. Was easily trapped in half court defense, rarely took a shot (although a great shooter) just never moved out of a support role. Damo's probably in his last year, we need a new back court. All the best Kenny, you'll always be a part of our championship history!

I can understand the decision considering his age, but very sad to see him go. He's been such a hreat,commited and reliable player for us over the last three years and a major part of the two championships. Hopefully we get to see him again somewhere in the nbl.

Thanks for the 3 years Kenny, good luck with whatever’s next!! 🏀❤️🏀

Tuff break mate. Did some great work off the pine & a bought valuable experience to the line up. All the best.

Very dissapointed to hear the news. Thanks for your time and your valuable work at the Wildcats Jarrod. Hopefully in time the club will see it was a mistake not re-signing you. Alex will be missing you wearing red this season. Best wishes for the future and wherever your basketball road leads.

Disappointing to hear but wish JK all the very best for the future. A great guy and a good baller! Will watch his career with interest.

Surprised he was let go. Had a cracking second half of the season

Thank you JK! We wish you every success in your future endeavors 🏀

The business part of the game sucks!. Such a nice guy and fit for our team- sorry to see him go. But understand we have to forward plan 😢

Sad to see him leave the club. He has been a great player for the Wildcats. Thanks for everything, JK. Good luck in your future endeavours 😔

Hope the cats get caught over the cap and go broke.

Wow, i mean great signing Wildcats but i would never have thought Kay would sign with the Cats. He looked at home with the Hawks.

Im a kiwi and i must say this is a big signing for you guys!

Mark good replacement for Matty Knight! 👍

Fantastic signing, when we lost Matty we were too small, Brandt and Kay, in the 4 and 5 spot is exciting.

Big addition to the team. Very happy with this signing.

Great signing. Will fill the big void left by Matty Knight

Great signing cats, need more shooters now 😊

At least he resisted the crowd joining the Brisbane Boomers. !!!!

Kaye Skinner. Another great signing. Welcome to the greatest team

I was so hoping for this!!! Great replacement for Matty Knight 😀

Awesome signing!! Just what the Wildcats needed 💪

Great signing. Kay’s best basketball is ahead of him too. Will thrive in Perth!

He’s a good signing for us. Hopefully him and Brandt will Work well together

Dave Cruden do we know if this guy is any good? Who does he force out?

At last, some more Low Post punch for the cats which is what they've been lacking!!! looking forward to next season already.

Awesome, congrats Wildcats and welcome to the Jungle Nick Kay. Looking forward to next season already #redarmy

Great pick up, loved his aggression at the comm games

Exciting news hopefully a few more to come

Woo Hoo welcome to the team Nick. Just what the Wildcat's needed!! So happy!!

Wow, I thinks that’s the big one from this free agency.

Awesome signing by the Wildcats! Join the Red Army today 👍🇦🇺🏀

Watch out league were on the prowl

Luke Tucker real good signing. Heard we are getting norton too

Finally flexing some muscle in the free agency period
