The proposed new tag, vaccination=<Illnesses against which vaccinations are
available>, seems like a reasonable idea.

However, it might be necessary to discuss a main feature tag to use in the
case when these are not administered by a clinic or doctor's office or

There does not seem to be a widely used, suitable tag under healthcare=* or
amenity=* for a place that specializes in administering immunizations only.

healthcare:speciality=vaccination is not a primary feature tag, but a
secondary tag which needs to be added to something under the key amenity=*
or healthcare=*.

Perhaps amenity=vaccination_centre would work?
