Treasure Tim Pallas, speaking in Monday's daily briefing, said the younger, more mobile nature of the building workforce meant going beyond the requirements for normal COVID compliance.
"To support the construction industry, we'll release 20,000 priority Pfizer appointments over the next week and unlimited access to AstraZeneca to all construction workers," he said.
Mr Pallas said about 50 teams would be out and about each day inspecting construction sites and penalty notices and prohibition orders would be issued if required.
The Victorian government also announced it will spend another $22 million on mental health, including pop-up clinics across the state.
