A MI mother who was jailed after refusing to vaccinate her 9-year-old son said she would "do it all over again", even though it led to her spending five days behind bars and losing primary custody of her child.

Bredow is in the middle of a custody battle over her son with James Horne, the boy's father.

A U.S. mum jailed for defying a court order to vaccinate her young son says she's outraged he's been given several immunisations while she's been locked away.

She said her time in jail "was the longest five days of my life".

In court, she said vaccinating her son goes against all of her beliefs, saying parents have the choice to make the right decision based on their knowledge of vaccines.

She said she couldn't adhere to the judge's order based on her "own religious beliefs".

The specific reason that Bredow was in contempt of court is that she had consented to have her son vaccinated in court pleadings late past year, although Vitale says that those pleadings were filed "in error", according to USA Today.

Rebecca Bredow was released from jail on Wednesday after serving six days for failing to get her son vaccinated and was outraged her son received the jabs while she was behind bars.

After failing to follow through with the promise, an Oakland County judge last week sentenced her to five days in prison for contempt of court.

"She's devastated", Vitale said of Bredow.

"You have seven days to get your child vaccinated", McDonald said on September 27. "I was trying to stand up for what I believed in, and it was worth it for me to try and take the risk, because I was trying to stop the vaccinations from happening".
