In brief: No

Many attempts have been made because it is retrovirus and rapidly mutates it is difficult to make a vaccine.
Best example the influenza vaccine which is made year in and out. It is manufactured with the prevalent strain but it can mitate and render ineffective , example the h1n1 outbreak

In brief: No

Scientist have been working very hard to develop this all very important vaccine but the frequent mutation of the HIV virus has made this impossible.
There is still hope, as more information is gathered about the virus, the vaccine will be available some day.
