A MI judge sentenced Rebecca Bredow to seven days in jail after she violated a court order to have her 9-year-old son vaccinated.

The judge restated that the court never made a finding on vaccination because it was agreed upon by Bredow in November previous year that her son would receive is vaccinations.

Bredow, from the Detroit suburb of Ferndale, said in court on Wednesday: "I am an educated vaccine-choice mother".

In November 2016, Bredow and her ex-husband, Jason Horne, agreed to space out vaccinations for their son.

"You agreed in a consent order to vaccinate your child, one".

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

According to ABC News the couple separated soon afterwards, in 2008, but they shared parental custody and the dad still wanted the boy to have his jabs.

But when Bredow refused to go through with the remaining vaccinations, her ex-husband asked the judge to force Bredow, who has primary custody of the child, to comply with their prior agreement.

The federal government does not legislate child immunisation, only issuing recommendations while leaving requirements to states or local school districts.

Child immunisation rates in MI are also among the worst in the U.S., ranking 43rd out of the 50 states, according to Mlive.

If a parent does not comply with a school's vaccination guidelines, the child is not permitted to attend school and the parent can be jailed for the pupil's truancy.

Rebecca Bredow is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday to find out if she will be behind bars for standing by her decision to not get childhood shots for her son.

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.
