In brief: No, not yet

There is no vaccine against malaria, but people who visit high-risk areas can ask their primary care doctors or travel-medicine doctors for pills to prevent malaria.
There are several medications for malaria prevention. Some are approved for children. Some are not recommended for travelers with a history of mental illness such as depression.
