In brief: No

There is no vaccine available for strep throat.
However, one should take the annual flu vaccine to prevent the flu. Mild cases of the flu can look like strep throat, with some fever, nausea, and sore throat. If one takes the flu vaccine, he usually won't catch the flu. So, he is less likely to end up at the doctor's office with mild flu symptoms, trying to see if he has the flu, strep, or a cold.
