Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
The answer that I will provide will likely not be favorable so I ask that you do not blame the messenger. It appears that at this time, for whatever reason (be it valid or invalid), your daughter was placed with your mother, and your mother has guardianship of the child. If she has guardianship, she can make all legal decisions pertaining to the child, including vaccination. Likewise, if she is listed as guardian (provided that there is a court order), she has the right to the child, and yes, even withhold him from you.
But you do have options--you can go to court yourself and file for a termination of guardianship and seek that the child be returned to you. If you are in very real fear for your daughter's health and safety you can also file for an 'ex parte' hearing requesting emergency custodial rights that if granted, will permit you to take the child back right away. This is likely the best option if you have evidence of wrong-doing and if granted, would be the fastest way for you to get the child back.
Sincerely,
Dimitry, Esq.
