Kurt -
As far as I know there is not yet a vaccine for Malaria, though some
progress has been made.  There are some preventative pills that folks
can take - the type depending on the area - but these can not be taken
over a long period of time because of bad side effects.

BTW - heard you a great time at Tom & Edith's.
