The state recorded 1,313 new locally acquired cases this morning with the health department confirming there are currently 15,675 active cases in the state.
It's a sizeable jump of more than 300 infections compared to Wednesday’s figures.
Just under 93 per cent of Victorians aged 12 and over have received at least one vaccine dose and 85 per cent are fully vaccinated.
It’s expected the state will hit 90 per cent double-dose by November 24, allowing almost all restrictions to be scrapped.
The wildly infectious virus has also claimed another four lives in the past 24 hour period.
There are currently 457 Victorians being treated for the virus in hospital, of whom 79 are in intensive care including 48 on ventilators.
Spike comes as crowds return to Remembrance Day service
The latest figures come as a crowd of 3,800 fully-vaccinated people are set to attend a Remembrance Day service in Melbourne.
It is the first time in two years the public has been invited to attend the service at the Shrine of Remembrance since the pandemic began.
It is expected Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews will attend the event, which requires all attendees to show proof they are double-vaccinated.
In September, protesters swarmed the shrine for a violent anti-lockdown rally, which was slammed as disrespectful by veterans and police.
