The "Pals battalions" of World War I were specially constituted battalions of the British Army comprising men who had enlisted together in local recruiting drives, with the promise that they would be able to serve alongside their friends, neighbors and colleagues, rather than being arbitrarily allocated to battalions. It was a badly conceived idea which ultimately resulted in tragedies where men joined together, served together and died together and whole communities had their menfolk wiped out on a single day.
Spain just announced that they are going to vaccine all their essential personnel. Including police, military, medical professions, teachers, workers in pharmacies and all people facing the public. However the Covid-19 vaccine this is not a vaccine. It is an experimental gene therapy with unknown long term consequences. What could possibly go wrong?
Pals battalions anyone?
