Oakland County Woman Ordered To Jail After Refusing To Vaccinate Her Son

•, WWJ

The order was handed down in Oakland County Circuit Court Wednesday, at which time Judge Karen McDonald also announced that the boy would be vaccinated today.

In explaining her decision, McDonald pointed out that Rebecca Breedow of Ferndale, together with her attorney, signed an order in November, 2016, agreeing that the child would be vaccinated. McDonald said that there was never an appeal of that order, and that Breedow never asked to have the order set aside.

The court order stems from an earlier custody hearing where the boy's father said he wanted the vaccinations for the child. Breedow told WWJthat she objected to grouping the shots together.
