In brief: No

food poisoning” has many causes.
It ranges from preformed toxins that can make an individual sick in a matter of minutes, to harmful bacteria. The only vaccine available foot foodborne pathogens is for salmonella typhi (typhoid fever), and is only indicated for travelers. Sometimes they are advised to take antibiotic prophylaxis for travelers diarrhea (not a shot but a pill).
