This is an autoimmune condition.
It is not an infection. The melanin producing cells in this condition become non functional. No pigment is formed so there is whitening of the skin.

In brief: No
Vitiligo is not contagious so it can not be passed from one person to another. Vitiligo is a auto-immune condition where one's own immune system "attacks" itself.
