Unfortunately, there is no injection to prevent malaria. The best is prevention from stings. A mosquito net is the first line of prevention, as well as covering up (wear trousers and long sleeves) and the use of mosquito repellants. Consult a peadiatrician, as the use of preventative antibiotics can be useful. You will have to consult a doctor for a prescription of preventative medicine. It is very important to be aware about the symptoms of malaria, especially on return from your trip.
