Victoria has recorded 1471 new local Covid-19 cases as the state passes a crucial vaccine target, while NSW recorded 135 infections.
Victoria has recorded 1471 new local Covid-19 cases on Monday as the state achieves its second major vaccine milestone.
Four more Victorians died with the virus in the past 24 hours, the Department of Health also confirmed.
It comes as Victoria clinched an 80 per cent double dose vaccination target for those aged 16 and above on Sunday.
Meanwhile, NSW recorded 135 new coronavirus cases on Monday from 62,857 tests.
There were also four more Covid-19 related deaths north of the Murray.
About 91.7 per cent of Victorians had received one jab, with the state now looking towards November 24 when it was projected to hit a 90 per cent double-dose rate.
In NSW, 93.6 per cent of people aged 16 and older had received one dose of the vaccine and 87.7 per cent were fully vaccinated.
Eased restrictions across Victoria linked to the vaccination milestone came into force two days early, on Friday.
Those relaxed rules meant shops, gyms and other retail businesses could reopen.
Masks were scrapped outdoors and in most indoor settings – including restaurants, pubs and gyms.
Hairdressers opened with no caps if all staff and patrons were fully vaccinated.
Most outdoor settings now had a limit of up to 500 people, where staff and patrons were fully vaccinated.
The same indoor and outdoor settings also applied to host weddings, funerals and religious gatherings if all attendees were fully vaccinated, with caps of 30 people for weddings, funerals and religious gatherings if vaccination status was unknown.
