After last year's Pandemic Special, the residents of the sleepy mountain town of South Park are back with an all-new hour-long special and we have all the details on how you can watch the South Park Vaccination Special online or on TV.
While season 24 of the animated sitcom has already been announced, Matt Stone and Trey Parker decided to take the show in a different direction last year when they revealed that South Park would be doing its first hour-long episode covering the pandemic.
The Pandemic Special showed us just how Stan, Kyle, Kenny, Eric, Butters and the other kids from South Park Elementary have been dealing with wearing masks, social distancing and doing distance learning classes on Zoom. However, we also learned that Randy Marsh and Mickey Mouse may have been responsible for unleashing Covid-19 in the first place.
Some time has passed and the Covid-19 vaccine is now available and the residents of South Park are eager to get their hands on it. At the same time though, a hilarious new militant group with ties to QAnon is trying to stop the boys from getting their teacher vaccinated.
Whether you've been watching South Park since the show first premiered in 1997 or you just want to see if people really did enjoy Randy's Pandemic Special, we'll show you how to watch the South Park Vaccination Special from anywhere in the world.
