No, it's like I said, wherein health providers report how many immunizations they administer.
I'm also unsure why you think you've just disproven my point - I'll highlight the relevant part;

I.e., immunization providers keep records, and report those records.

We're talking about separate things - you asked how it was possible to know how many people had been vaccinated, and I told you. You're now shifting the goal posts and asking how it's possible prove you've been vaccinated, and that's easy - you provide records from the physician that administered your vaccinations.

Well, many, but none that are pertinent to this discussion.
As you can see from the responses that data are not as detailed as you believe. The capability exists, the data exists, somewhere. But no one repository exists that can be cherry picked to provide the capability that you desire. As BlackSails answer shows you, we might be one nation under God, but we are fifty states with a multitude of different ideas and prerogatives. The Social Security data base is as close as you can get to national database of who is extant in this country and I assure you, they don't know for certain. Either you are daft or you simply can't put your head around the idea that sometimes you have to settle with what you can do. I don't think you are daft. Schools and day cares are the first formal point of contact for children to social discourse. It is at this point, if you are lucky, that you get to kick the tires and check the data. I would love to see mandated rigid requirements to vaccinate. More power to you if your generation can pull it off.
I'm not sure why you think that - the data is all right there, and you can look at it yourself.
I'm trying to tell you that 'just settle for what you can do' is a bad public policy, and I've outlined reasons why. You keep repeating various things that don't support any criticisms of the suggestion we're putting forth, but insisting that it stands as an argument. It doesn't. All you've done is list... I dunno, irritations or smallscale objections (freedom! less than 100% perfect record keeping!), while continuing to ignore the point that we're making about why 'ONLY insuring vaccinations in schools' is actually insufficient.
I don't think you're daft either, but I don't think you're approaching this debate in good faith. I think you're uncomfortable with the notion of federally mandated vaccinations, but are unable to articulate why, or support why. That's understandable, because government! big brother! not in my body!, but I don't think you should keep couching your objection in these poorly substantiated points while ignoring what's being said.
