Area mom jailed for ignoring deal to vaccinate son

Judge orders Michigan mom 7 days in jail for not vaccinating her son

A MI mother will spend a few days in prison after she declined to get her son vaccinated.

Bredow was given one week to get her son vaccinated, but refused citing her beliefs.

Bredow was found in contempt of court, and McDonald said the boy would be vaccinated today based on the November 2016 agreement made between the woman and her ex-husband.

The mother-of-two was found guilty of contempt of court and sentenced on Wednesday after flouting the court order.

She was handcuffed in court and escorted out of the room by deputies.

Rebecca Bredow had a hearing in Pontiac on Wednesday to decide if she will go to jail for refusing to vaccinate her son.

Anti-vaccination advocates - whose claims have been widely debunked by the medical community - fear the procedure exposes children to harm, and could be the cause of autism.

Earlier this year, the State of MI launched a social media and TV campaign to encourage parents to vaccinate their children.

Barbara Loe Fisher, president of the National Vaccine Information Centre, told the BBC that the federal government doesn't legislate child vaccinations, but they do issue recommendations to states or local school districts.

A month ago, she said that she and her son's dad consented to space out and delay getting their son vaccinated.

Because of that, a lot of anti-vax parents will go as far as to home-school their children so that they don't have to get them immunised.

Child immunisation rates in MI are among the worst in the nation, ranking 43rd among the 50 U.S. states, according to Mlive. The couple separated in 2008, and now the father wants his son vaccinated, according to ABC News. Two, I understand you love your children but what I don't think you understand is that your son has two parents, and dad gets a say.
