Victoria is tightening its border restriction, mandating that from September 23 freight and healthcare workers entering the state on a specified multiple entry work permit must have one dose of vaccination.
Mr Foley said the change was in response to the risk of incursion from NSW.
The move does not affect the cross border resident permit.
As of September 17 all aged care workers must be vaccinated in Victoria.
Victoria's current COVID crisis is disproportionately an outbreak of the young, Victorian Health Minister Martin Foley said.
He said 87 per cent of cases active in the state were aged under 50.
There are 111 people in hospital with COVID, 32 in ICU and 19 on a ventilator.
Of the 111 people in hospital 89 are not vaccinated at all and 11 per cent have had a single dose of vaccine.
Victoria recorded 324 cases of locally acquired COVID in the 24 hours to midnight yesterday, and one case in hotel quarantine.
Of the new cases, 107 have been linked to known outbreaks while 217 mystery cases remain under investigation.
