Even South Park isn't exempt from social distancing.


Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny have been wearing masks and sanitising their hands like the rest of us, as we saw in the South Park Pandemic Special. The good news is that the vaccine has arrived in Colorado, meaning the show is able to present another feature length episode, the Vaccination Special.

But how can we watch it here in the UK? Don't worry, we have all the details below.

What is the South Park Vaccination Special?

Following on from the successful Pandemic Special, the Vaccination Special is another 'one hour event' giving coronavirus the South Park treatment. We know that much of the story will focus on the boys' attempt to secure a vaccination for their teacher at South Park Elementary. They must overcome a militant group who wish to stand in their way.

When is the South Park Vaccination Special on in the UK?

What is the South Park Pandemic Special?

One of South Park's great strengths is its ability to reflect and satirise political and social events, so of course they were going to write an episode about the global pandemic that shook the world.

Airing in the US last September, Trey Parker and Matt Stone gave their take on coronavirus in their first ever one hour episode. The plot tells the story of Stan's dad, Randy being responsible for spreading the virus around town, and locked down Cartman being reluctant to get out of his PJs (we've all been there, mate).
