In brief: No

Our ability to prevent viruses if limited, although vaccine is the best method we have.
The cdc reports a vaccine is being worked on. In the meantime they have a website that discusses how to prevent mosquito bites. For how it is the only effective prevention. http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/westnile/qa/prevention.htm.
