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

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.

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.

Natco Pharma hits upper circuit on USFDA approval for Glatiramer Acetate injection
The generic version is coming to a market of about 400,000 U.S. patients with MS - 85% of whom suffer from a relapsing form. The FDA's approval means that patients can expect the same results as Copaxone while using the generic version.

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.

Mattis faced a direct question about the agreement during his testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee this morning. That would let Congress, controlled by Trump's fellow Republicans, effectively decide whether to kill the deal.
