US woman jailed for refusing to vaccinate son

Thursday - October 5, 2017 7:26 am , Category : HEALTH

Washington Oct 5 (IANS) A US woman was on Wednesday sentenced to seven days in jail for refusing to bring her child s vaccinations up to date a media report said.



According to ABC News Rebecca Bredow of the Detroit area appeared at the Oakland County Circuit Court where Judge Karen McDonald sentenced her for contempt of court after Bredow refused to comply with court orders for her to allow her son to receive all his missing vaccinations within one week.

Bredow took the "full responsibility" for her actions and said that vaccinations go against her beliefs.

In an interview with ABC News last week Bredow said that she would "absolutely" rather go to jail than allow her nine-year-old son to receive the swath of vaccinations in one week.

"I would rather go to jail for standing up for what I believe in than vaccinating my child " Bredow was quoted as saying adding that she believes the decision to vaccinate a child is a "personal choice."

The state of Michigan allows parents to opt-out of certain vaccines for non-medical reasons.
