As COVID-19 vaccines continue to be administered around the world, they could also become the key to getting the next stimulus check.

Republican Ohio representative Steve Stivers thinks this should be the case, as he believes making people get the vaccine in order to receive the $1,400 stimulus check would have a major consequence.

I hope the administration will look at that option because we actually buy something with our $1,400, and that's herd immunity. Stiver told Yahoo! Finance.

NBC reports Stiver's suggestion is not likely to move forward through the democrat-controlled House of Representatives as the next stimulus bill continues to be negotiated.

Joe Biden introduced his $1.9 trillion dollar COVID stimulus plan shortly before being inaugurated into office, and it features much more than just $1,400 checks to Americans.

Also included in the bill are additional federal unemployment benefits, nationwide COVID vaccine delivery, $15 minimum wage, funding to reopen schools, and extending the eviction ban.

It is not yet known when or if the bill will pass, as it is already facing setbacks from House Republicans, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told NBC the house is working in committees throughout the next week to make sure they are completely ready to take the bill to the floor.
