The Covid-19 vaccine roll out won't be ramped up in the capital to ring fence any possible spread of the virus.

An Auditor-General's report says says the government's received advice on using the ring fence approach and should progress the work with urgency.

The same report found there is a lack of vaccine contingency planning in place in the event of a community outbreak.

Political reporter Katie Scotcher filed this report.
