This is the daily stimulus money update

Although Democratic lawmakers are moving forward through the reconciliation process to pass a $1.9 trillion stimulus without GOP help, not all of President Joe Biden’s original proposal is going to make it.

Democrats seem ready to walk away from the minimum wage hike, at least for the time being. And even Senator Bernie Sanders is on board.

Senator Joni Ernst proposed an amendment that would table the pay increase from $7.25 to $15 an hour.

“A $15 federal minimum wage would be devastating for our hardest hit small businesses at a time when they can least afford it,” she said. “We should not have a one-size-fits-all policy set by Washington politicians. We all support higher wages, but a $15 federal minimum wage would be counterproductive.”

When Sanders supported her amendment he said, “I will support this amendment because nobody is talking about doubling the federal minimum wage during the pandemic. We’re talking about gradually phasing it in over a five-year period.”

This is what you need to know about the vaccine after having the virus

If you’ve already had the virus and are feeling better, you may be wondering if it’s even worth it to get the vaccine when it finally becomes available to you. After all, with all the shortages and delays, wouldn’t it be better to let someone else who hasn’t yet been sick get the shot? Would it even be safe for you at this point?

According to officials with the Centers for Disease Control, it’s a good idea to go ahead and get it.

“Due to the severe health risks associated with [the virus] and the fact that reinfection with [the virus] is possible, you should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had [the] infection,” officials say.

What, exactly, is behind this reasoning, and what else should you know if you (or someone you love) is considering getting the shot after recovering from the virus?
