By Victor Omondi – ( – Americans in their millions are still hopeful that there could be a second round of stimulus checks to help them cope with the financial crisis brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.

In the meantime, the American government is getting ready to distribute Covid-19 vaccines to the public to finally bring the public health crisis to an end. In an effort to make the immunization effective, one proposal suggests giving people $1,500 stimuli checks in exchange for getting vaccinated.

The idea has been raised by entrepreneur John Delaney, a former Democratic congressman for Maryland, who was also a presidential candidate in the 2020 elections.

“The faster we get 75 percent of this country vaccinated, the faster we end Covid and the sooner everything returns to normal,” Delaney said.

Nevertheless, the plan could face some hurdles, considering that has worked for months to agree on the next Coronavirus stimulus package. While more than 12 million Americans are at risk of losing their unemployment in the coming days, Democrats and Republicans haven’t reached a common decision regarding the matter.

Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control met this week to decide who should be the first to get the Coronavirus vaccination. As soon as the vaccines are approved, Americans will get their doses free of charge. Nevertheless, some people may be skeptical about taking the newly-developed treatment. According to one Gallup poll, at least 58% of Americans confirmed that they would get the immunization.

Public polling has discovered that whether to take the vaccine or not has become a political issue, which makes it very discouraging, according to Delaney.

“We have to create, in my judgment, an incentive for people to really accelerate their thinking about taking the vaccine,” Delaney said.

Even then, those who aren’t comfortable getting vaccinated wouldn’t be forced to do so.

“If you’re still afraid of the vaccine and don’t want to take it, that’s your right,” he added. “You won’t participate in this program.”
