Rebecca Bredow, 40, was sentenced to a week in jail Wednesday for contempt of court-closing a year-long legal battle between her and her ex-husband over the vaccination of their 9-year-old, Detroit News reported.

Her ex-husband, who wanted his son vaccinated, went to the judge after Bredow would not vaccinate the boy.

And while Bredow had been forthright about refusing to vaccinate her son, she and her ex-husband had previously agreed in November 2016 to inoculate the child, with the injections being spaced out over time.

Judge McDonald granted temporary custody to the boy's father, from whom Ms Bredow separated in 2008, and ordered the boy to be properly vaccinated.

FOX2 reports that an Oakland County judge told Rebecca Bredow on Wednesday that she violated an agreement to have the procedure done.

Mother Bredow with her ex-husband chose to space out and delay the jabs to their son at the time of birth of the child. "I would rather go to jail for what I believe, than give in to something I do not believe", she said.

Michigan, for the record, allows parents to refuse certain vaccinations for nonmedical reasons. She's anticipated to be back in court next week.

MI schools require children to be vaccinated but parents can seek waivers for religious and other objections. When Bredow appeared in court and admitted she would not take him to get his shots, the judge blasted her.

Immunisation in the United States falls under state and local jurisdiction.

"Even if you agreed to them, which you did".

"It's unmistakable to me that you couldn't care less about requests, regardless of the possibility that you consent to them, which you did". Some are wary of injecting different fluids to otherwise healthy children, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics both recommend for children to get vaccinated against 14 diseases by age 2.

Richardson said, "The court was really left with no alternative except to take this action based on the fact that she'd indicated she wasn't going to follow the order".
