MI woman jailed for not vaccinating nine-year-old son

A suburban Detroit woman will spend a week in jail for violating an agreement to have her son vaccinated.

Bredow's case first made headlines last week after her ex-husband took her to court over her refusal to vaccinate their son, despite agreeing to do so in November 2016, Fox 2 Detroit reported.

She is the child's primary caregiver, but the judge told her the boy's father "gets a say".

While Bredow serves her seven-day prison sentence, the child will be in the care of Horne.

But unfortunately the elderly President insists on running for another term in the coming elections slated for August 2018. Engels, 20, has launched a legal battle to have Grace Mugabe stripped of immunity over the alleged attack.

Court documents obtained by ABC News state that Bredow was first asked to have the immunizations provided to her son in November 2016.

"If my child is going to be forced to be vaccinated, I couldn't bring myself to do it", Bredow said in court Wednesday.

In addition to the brief jail sentence, Judge McDonald granted the father temporary custody while Bredow is incarcerated or until the child is up to date on his vaccinations.

MI parents are legally allowed to skip or delay their children's vaccinations due to personal beliefs.

She and her ex had decided when their son was born that they would space out and delay vaccinations for their 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.

According to WXYZ, the judge told Bredow that her son would be vaccinated regardless and that Bredow could go to jail for contempt or not - it was her choice.

Bedrow had one week to get her 9-year-old son vaccinated, as indicated by a request by an Oakland County judge.
