The Commonwealth Games has undergone a major shakeup.

Athletics and swimming are mainstays as potential hosts are given a menu of events to select from at future games, despite the 2026 Games not having a host yet.

The Government is hosting a "vaxathon" for Super Saturday from 12 to 8pm.

The vaxathon — which will be fronted by celebrities and health experts — will capture the action at vaccine sites nationwide.

There's concern that some midwives may quit the profession.

It comes as the Government announced all high-risk health workers including midwives must be fully vaccinated by December 1st.
