Jailed mom Rebecca Bredow was "devastated" after her ex-husband had their son vaccinated while she was serving time for failing to comply with a judge's order to get the 9-year-old boy vaccinated.

The boy received four immunizations this week, according to court testimony on Wednesday, USA Today reported. This comes amid a vaccination dispute between his divorced parents.

The Michigan mother had taken an opposing stance to the vaccinations as part of a custody battle with her ex-husband Jason Horne, who wanted the child to be vaccinated.

On Monday, Horne had the vaccines administered, while the child was under his custody.

In a teary response, Bredow said her week in prison had been the worst few days of her life, "except for the fact that I just found out that he was vaccinated and I'm not going to get him back today," according to USA Today.

"It's been a rough few days to say the least."

Last month, Bredow told The Washington Post she was opposing the vaccines on religious grounds, stating that it was about her having the choice as a mother to "be able to make medical choices for my child."

She and Horne have been locked in a custody battle for their son, but on Wednesday Judge Karen McDonald approved a recommendation that could result in shared custody between the parents.

Bredow's attorney Steven Vitale was allocated 21 days to object.

"She's devastated," Vitale said, per USA Today.

Since news of the dispute broke, Bredow has received support from various organizations including Michigan for Vaccine Choice and the National Vaccine Information Center.
